A top Curacao bank, Vidanova, states its partnership and usage of RippleNet on its official webpage, where it says, "Vidanova Bank provides access to RippleNet, the decentralized global network of banks and payment providers...With this technology, you can message, clear, and settle financial transactions in real-time."
Additionally, Vidanova, a financial service provider located in Curaçao, an island in the Caribbean Sea and a country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands, also utilizes SWIFT alongside Ripple for international payments.
It speaks of RippleNet thus: "RippleNet connects banks, payment providers, digital asset exchanges, and corporations...With the most advanced blockchain technology for global payments, financial institutions are able to execute transfers to a growing number of institutions."
As previously covered, Q1 2022 was a record quarter for Ripple's remittance platform On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) as volumes increased with nearly 8x YoY growth. In total, RippleNet saw a $15 billion annualized payment volume run rate, marking unrivaled growth as ODL use cases continue to expand.
