Ripple’s On-Demand Liquidity takes root in Mexico

Mexico is the fastest growing cryptocurrency market globally. Ripple is at the forefront of ensuring that the 125 million unbanked people have a smooth path in and out of crypto. Daniel Vogel, CEO of Bitso, in a recent interview with Ripple’s CTO David Schwartz, said:

We want to make sure that people can go in and out of crypto…seamlessly using our rails.

On-Demand Liquidity is a service that allows fiat currency conversion using crypto technology. In our case, we’re assisting in converting US Dollars to Mexico Pesos, where the digital asset XRP is a bridge currency. We’re processing close to 10% of the remittances from the US to Mexico through ODL.
