It’s no news that cryptocurrencies have gradually become an essential part of the global financial system and Ripple is right in the middle of this innovation. Ripple is in direct competition with SWIFT, MasterCard. On more than one occasion, Ripple executives have made it clear that they intend to carve out a major chunk of SWIFTS market capitalization.

Many banks have introduced SWIFT GPI to improve the speed and tracking of international payments. But with challengers providing convenient solutions like ‘request to pay’ that facilitate remittance and reconciliation, banks need to continue refreshing their offerings.”
