Ripple is constantly expanding its network as XRP liquidation increases, SBI declares Ripple being “extremely superior in terms of cost-effective speed and economy”, Kotak Mahindra Bank CDO talks on joining RippleNet while TrasnferGo and PropyInc utilize Ripple as well.
XRP exchange liquidation increasing rapidly
Crypto market is strongly driven by price when the focus should be on development, technology, and adoption. Price will automatically follow, if not in the short term then in the long term for sure.
Today, in a very short span, the entire crypto market plunged. If we take a look at the XRP price, it is down by 8.57% at $0.308. Apparently, sellers are flushing the buyers out of the market. Bitcoin’s free fall has taken Ethereum (ETH), XRP and other cryptos with it to the ground.
According to XRP enthusiast Leonidas, another exchange has come into XRP’s bag:

In the crypto market, it is essential for a cryptocurrency to keep on adding exchanges to its name. When it comes to XRP, the 3rd largest cryptocurrency has made quite a progress as revealed by XRP enthusiasm Hodor who shares,
“Less than one year ago, I inventoried all of the known worldwide exchanges that carried XRP, and arrived at approximately 29 exchanges. And recently, I again took inventory of the number of XRP exchanges and entry points, and the number was 105 and growing quickly. This represents more than a 300% increase in the number of liquidity endpoints in less than a year, with some of the new entrants representing milestones in Ripple’s overall xRapid roll-out strategy.”

“Remittance using Ripple’s distributed ledger technology, which began with The Siam Commercial Bank Public Company Limited, a major commercial bank in Thailand in June 2017, is extremely superior in terms of cost-effective speed and economy. The use of customers has increased remarkably. In the future, we plan to further expand the remittance channel using Ripple’s platform.”
