eToro, the crypto and traditional asset platform, is looking to adopt xRapid, Ripple’s cross-border payment solution that uses XRP to settle transactions.  CEO Yoni Assia visited Ripple’s headquarters this Thursday to meet Ripple co-founder Chris Larsen and learn more about xRapid. Assia had met with Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse at the Paris Fintech Forum to discuss a potential partnership. Assia said:

“I think as a fintech company it’s very important for us to foster relationships with other fintech companies. Obviously, we’re one of the largest trading platforms on XRP – so very interested in forming a relationship with Ripple Labs and understanding what we can do together.”

eToro joins Binance as crypto exchange giants who are looking to partner with Ripple to adopt xRapid. As reported by FX Street, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao said:

“We’re focused on launching more features right now, so we are working with a number of other partners. With xRapid, there’s nothing going on right now, but in the future we’ll definitely want to add them as a partner.”
