ODL Keeps Expanding in Asia Next Year

CEO Adam Traidman commented on the recently launched project and the plans that SBI Ripple Asia intends to follow and achieve. The official representative assured the community that the brand is currently carrying out trials. The team is also doing a thorough research and is carrying out pilot projects across the Asian continent for the firm’s ODL.

Asia is likely to become the next platform to prove Ripple’s efficiency. Specialists expect the firm to keep on expanding and explain what role the company’s payment corridor plays when performing transfers across boarders. Traidman announced that Ripple has begun to develop its solution in several Asian countries. He also mentioned that the brand is fully prepared to start pilot schemes and trial versions plus present limited trials with numerous firms to evaluate the innovation and its features. CEO foresees further development and expansion next year as well.

In his interview given a week ago, Traidman noted that he expects a significant spread – according to him, things will start moving into wider production. He also mentioned remittance companies and why those firms experienced restrictions in further growth. It appears that the major reason for this was because they had to meet the requirements that pre-funding involves. Besides, they had plenty of capital. All of these factors allowed the team to be more flexible.

Lower Prices and Greater Speeds

Ripple can boast its native token. As we know, XRP serves as a link and can be the greatest ODL solution that allows companies to decrease the cost and, at the same time, boost the delivery time while performing transfers. In most cases, nowadays this kind of procedure takes more than 24 hours to be processed. Greater speeds will reduce the risk of fluctuations that are typical of all currencies.

Analysts say that this cannot be the best approach for some countries. Transfers in Japan are costly. In the USA, they are less expensive. For this very reason, many may not see the system replace ACH. However, customers performing payments across borders warmly welcome the ODL approach since there costs are much higher.

The best areas for this method may be South America and Asia. The usage of the network is steadily increasing at the moment – its transaction volume is nowadays three times as large as it was a few months ago. Moreover, the dollar value transacted employing ODL has risen by over two hundred and ninety-four percent.

Some participants may give their preference to RippleNet. Nevertheless, there are many customers who will opt for ODL and the opportunities this network offers. Across the Asian continent, we can see a lot of countries that are already actively employing RippleNet and say that they are happy with the system’s financial services. They help many institutions to perform cross-border payments and save time and money.

Several remittance services have also been using ODL. Azimo is one of the most prominent customers based in the UK – the brand has been functioning and working through the payment corridor that linked the Philippines and some EU areas. We cannot deny the fact that at present, Asia seems to be far more progressive in that regard – many Asian countries opt for numerous types of new payment alternatives. Innovative ideas and projects that the industry is ready to provide find plenty of support across the Asian continent and the list includes areas like Bangladesh and South Kore
