Camille Jeong, the business development manager of Coinone Transfer, claims that Ripple helped them bring in new customers who had been sending money overseas with the help of banks. 

The South Korean remittance company has managed to retain 80 percent of its clients. 

'The unique Ripple-powered benefits of our service and innovative marketing brought people in. Our superior customer experience kept them coming back and our retention rate is now more than 80%.'

Coinone Transfer touts a slew of benefits offered by Ripple  

The partnership between SBI Ripple Asia and Coinone Transfer dates back to 2018.

As of now, Coinone Transfer boasts 12 payment corridors. 

South Korean immigrants who send money to loved ones abroad can benefit from low fees and fast settlements.

Back in March, South Korea caused quite a stir by legalizing cryptocurrency trading, solidifying its status as a major crypto hub.
