One of the world's largest money transfer systems, MoneyGram, announced a partnership with Ripple's financial solutions provider, which will use XRP tokens in its processes.

According to the company's message, thanks to this, MoneyGram will be able to solve the liquidity problem, which is traditionally faced by most financial institutions, while saving time and money. At the same time, MoneyGram customers will be able to send funds in real time with full transparency and reliability of the process.

Ripple is at the forefront of blockchain technology and we look forward to piloting xRapid. We’re hopeful it will increase efficiency and improve services to MoneyGram’s customers.
