Santander to Deny XRP Token Usage Info

It turned out that bank uses xCurrent in One Pay FX instead of XRP token for international payments, as it stated earlier
25 March 2019   71

Santander, a large Spanish bank, in its Twitter spread incorrect information about cooperation with Ripple.

And although the majority of cryptocurrency holders reacted positively to the statement of Santander, some of them drew attention to the fact that this news had no effect on the growth of XRP trading volume.

It soon became clear that the bank provided incorrect information.

xCurrent allows Ripple customers to make payments using Fiat as well as digital currencies. A similar product, the operations in which are carried out using XRP cryptocurrency, is called xRapid.

Despite the official apology, some commentators suspected the bank of manipulating the market.
