The partnership is Not Really a Suprise
Ripple initially spoke about RationalFX in a blog post dated almost a year ago (on 26 April 2018). In the post, Ripple mentioned the firm is a new customer. The post was titled “xVia Opens New Doors in Emerging Markets” and it was posted on its Insights blog.
In this blog post, Ripple explained what xVia is and the connection between it and the firm. Excerpt from the blog post reads:
“xVia allows for financial institutions and businesses to easily send payments to and from emerging markets by leveraging the benefits of RippleNet — Ripple’s decentralized global payments network.
By providing a standard API solution, xVia lets companies that want to send payments — payment providers, digital wallets and other corporates — quickly scale their businesses, differentiate their services and address their customers’ unique needs. The individuals and businesses that rely on them can send payments faster and cheaper anywhere in the world.”
It then continued that:
“FairFX, Exchange4Free, RationalFX, UniPAY and MoneyMatch” would be leveraging “xVia’s standard API solution to power payments through RippleNet and access new markets, including emerging markets faster and more efficiently.”
