TransferGo is a member of RippleNet
TransferGo is also a member of RippleNet, Ripple’s global network of banks and payment providers that are using the Interledger protocol in order to send cross-border payments.
Speaking of Ripple, Chief Market Strategist Cory Johnson recently had an interview with Fox Business in which he claimed that Ripple’s XRP token uses a better technology compared to the one of Bitcoin.
He also stated that XRP would have higher value over time, while BTC is breaking down slowly but surely.
Johnson claimed that compared to other cryptos, Ripple’s XRP is moving very fast and it has really low transaction costs, compared to other cryptos.
All these make it a technology which allows businesses to move money across borders efficiently.
