Ripple Does Not Change Method
1/ My fav skeptics are active today! (@FT @nathanielpopper) Ripple has absolutely no plans to ‘reset’ our strategy. Using XRP to solve a real-world, $10T problem, like cross-border payments, is working (1/4) https://t.co/Gkf70dq7G6

In a statement released on his Twitter account, Garlinghouse stated that Ripple does not aim to “reset” its strategy and will continue to move forward to solve the $ 10 trillion payment industry problem.
Garlinghouse stated that since its launch, ODL (On-Demand-Liquidity), one of Ripple’s most popular products, has made $ 2 billion in transactions. This shows that Ripple has already taken a serious place in the payment industry.
Expressing that they have mediated more than 7 billion dollars in total over the last 3 years on Ripplenet, the CEO also implied that they will continue on this path until the global payment problem is solved and the sector is digitized. XRP is on the rise again after this announcement and is trading at $ 0.30 as of press time.
