Ripple Buys MoneyGram to Expand Its Global Influence: Unconfirmed
Contents

A full time trader and developer, as per his Twitter profile, CryptHawk, claims he has news that the rest of the crypto community is still unaware of – Ripple, he states, has acquired MoneyGram.

Neither Ripple nor MoneyGram have confirmed this, so it remains a rumour so far. But every rumour has a foundation. The two companies have already been cooperating.

Ripple partners with MoneyGram

Back in winter 2018, when the crypto market only started going down and bears were gaining power, Ripple and MoneyGram kicked off their official collaboration. The global giant working the e-payments industry was planning to trial XRP for its online transactions. Also, Ripple’s intention was to use MoneyGram in one of its products – xVia.

Brad Garlinghouse, Ripple’s CEO, back then said he was excited about XRP being integrated into MoneyGram’s system, which would enable them to send funds within seconds.
