Ripple has been ignoring all the criticism it has been targeted with by a part of the crypto-community, many of whom are worried about XRP’s price, by keeping to its business of promoting its technology along with XRP. The San Francisco-based real-time gross settlement company has managed to rope in another bank to use its digital solutions for cross-border payments.
Faysal Bank Limited, a Pakistan-based Islamic Commercial bank, is the latest feather added to Ripple’s hat. The partnership was announced on 6 September, and was commemorated by a meeting in Karachi in the presence of the bank’s President and CEO, Yousaf Hussain. Faysal Bank Limited revealed brief details of the partnership on Twitter. The tweet read,
