Ripple, MoneyGram Announce Partnership to 'Modernize' Payments

Crypto today: Ripple lands mainstream partnership

Shares of MoneyGram International Inc jumped 10.5 percent on Thursday, after the money-transfer company said it partnered with blockchain firm and bitcoin-rival Ripple. "By using a digital asset like XRP that ‎settles in three seconds or less, our clients can move money as quickly as ‎information."‎.

Investors and traders have reacted positively that the price went up by 20% and many analysts believe the price of XRP token will reach back to $3, which was the price before the coinmarketcap blunder. The current model for these payments requires money transfer companies to use pre-funded accounts across the globe to source liquidity.

The Ripple official twitter handle has tweeted the news that there will be more payment companies like Moneygram joining the usage of XRP in 2018. "We are excited about this pilot and a long-term strategic partnership with MoneyGram".
