xRapid  proved useful to financial institutions, as it saved substantial amounts of money in foreign exchange transactions. Theoretically, these savings apply to the sender’s end in payment transactions. xRapid is powered by XRP, the digital asset for payments. This greatly reduces the cost of transactions while permitting real time payments. The  adoption of Ripple's xRapid will create a sound competition leading to a fair pricing model which benefits the user. Besides cheaper costs, payments will become considerably faster.

xRapid's reduced charges imposed on the remittance payments can have several positive effects on the livelihoods of individuals. Also, it is a significant step towards the realisation of the initial objectives of digital assets, which is to serve the underprivileged without bias.

The company aims towards building a world of swifter and affordable transactions. To make this dream come true it intends to establish an Internet of Value, a network which facilitates the uninterrupted interchange of value similar to the web. It has an extended list of companies using RippleNet. Currently 120 companies are using the platform and more businesses are transferring XRP as part of the model of their business. Ripple is emerging as the best digital asset for payments.

This list is quickly getting populated and many big names are getting added.
