Ripple看好中国跨境支付市场

Ripple欧盟战略副总裁Jeremy Light近日在接受CNBC采访时表示,Ripple目前对中国市场非常感兴趣。

该报道认为,鉴于目前中国对加密货币和ICO活动的监管环境,Ripple如果进军中国市场,应该不会太专注于推广自己的XRP加密货币,而可能会将业务重心放在通过区块链技术加速跨境支付领域。

近一段时间以来,Ripple一直在积极拓展与大型金融集团的合作,并在跨境支付方面也是动作不断。比如今年6月,Ripple就与西班牙桑坦德银行合作,推出了首个专注于跨境支付的移动服务。

这款产品名叫Santander One Pay FX。通过这款产品,国际汇款处理速度被缩减到短短几秒,结算也能在当天就完成,而传统机构的速度至少要三到五天。

目前,桑坦德银行在全球的不少用户可以或已经开始使用这项服务。比如,西班牙的用户可以借助One Pay FX将款项汇到英国和美国,而巴西和波兰的用户则可以完成向英国的快速汇款。

 

Ripple is eyeing the Chinese market, aiming to use blockchain technology to quicken cross-border payments. According to a report in CNBC, citing Jeremy Light, vice president of European Union (EU) strategic accounts at Ripple, the China market is a target for the company.

“China is definitely a country and region of interest,” he said in a phone interview with CNBC.

The report noted that if Ripple does enter the Chinese market, it’s not likely to focus on pushing its own XRP cryptocurrency, given that regulators in China have been cracking down on digital tokens and banned initial coin offerings (ICO) last year.

The comments from the Ripple executive come as the company has been inking partnerships with big financial players. In late June, Spanish bank Banco Santander said that it is linking with Ripple to offer the first mobile service focused on payments rendered across borders. The service, Santander One Pay FX, allows for payments to be processed in seconds and settled the same day, a feature newly available to millions of the bank’s customers throughout the continent.

One Pay FX’s official debut comes two months after Santander said it would bring that service to market. In April, Santander had said that, in Spain, users of the service could transfer funds to the United Kingdom and the United States. In Brazil and Poland, said Santander, customers can transfer to the U.K. In illustrative use cases, users can send dollars to the U.S. and pounds to the U.K. With a nod to other fund flows, customers in the U.K. can send euros to 21 countries.

The announcement of One Pay FX and planned rollout across Europe, the company said in a release, allows speed and safety in cross-border payments, where, along traditional conduits, international transactions took three to five days to clear. The company said that the mobile-first user interface (UI) and blockchain infrastructure ties together the total cost of sending payments, embracing (beyond the total payment) bank fees, foreign exchange rates, delivery time quotes and payment receipts.
