More on How Partnership with Ripple Has Helped Bitso Exchange
In an interview held sometimes in March 2020, Bárbara González Briseño, the head of finance at Bitso exchange, spoke about her company’s partnership with the US-based blockchain tech, Ripple.
In the conversation, Briseño explained how Bitso had benefitted from its collaboration with Ripple.
“With my experience as a corporate customer. It’s an even bigger problem for retail customers, especially families whose rent, groceries, and educational costs depend on remittances from relatives working abroad.”
Speaking about Ripple’s On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) service powered by XRP, she said:
“ODL is amazing. The transaction happens instantly, is much more cost-effective and you know exactly when the recipient receives it. Just a few months after starting work with Ripple, we were able to offer a fully functioning solution to our partners. Since July 2019, we’ve seen a major increase in adoption as well as the volume of transfers we’re facilitating.”
