The latest reports released by the Liquidity Index Bot regarding ODL performance in all corridors have raised more questions than answers among the XRP community members.

According to the report, the liquidity index of XRP-powered ODL in Mexico’s Bitso and Bitstamp read negative, while both BTC Markets and Coins.ph have been performing below expectations, considering the all-time highs they once recorded.
