Two reasons for companies to sign production contracts
The companies’ act of signing production contracts implies two significant aspects . Firstly, the organisations are ready to test the technology of. Secondly, they show their commitment towards integrating and incorporating on a commercial basis the products of Ripple in the upcoming times.
The software solutions designed by Ripple are fundamentally directed towards reducing the transaction cost and also to enhance the tracking and the speed. XRP finds its application in xRapid, a cryptocurrency based solution meant to make cross-border transaction better.
Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple has previously commented that each week it is signing a production contract, in an average, with one bank. In his words, “It’s been an incredible 2018 for us. We’re now signing up one bank to a production contract per week. We announced that we signed the largest bank in Kuwait, the National Bank of Kuwait, so if [Ripple] continues to build momentum and the dynamic there is the network effect. He has further stated, “The more participants, the more value in joining. So we’re seeing that momentum build.”
