Capitalization of Ripple has grown, as the central bank of Saudi Arabia has signed an agreement with the company on the application of their blockchain technology.
In a deal signed with the Saudi Arabia Currency Board (SAMA), Ripple software was specified, which will be used in banks of the country to improve the payment system through blockchain technology.
The pilot program, the first of its kind, which attracted the attention of the central bank, will allow banks to use the xCurrent software from Ripple to instantly calculate payments.
It is expected that the transaction will facilitate faster, cheaper and transparent cross-border transactions.
