Axis Bank launches Ripple-powered instant payment service for retail and corporate customers

Mumbai, Nov 22 (IBNS): Axis Bank, a private sector bank, on Wednesday launched instant international payment services using Ripple’s enterprise blockchain technology solution.

The bank has launched a service for its retail customers in India to receive payments from RakBank in UAE and for its corporate customers in India to receive payments from Standard Chartered Bank in Singapore.

Ripple makes international remittances faster and transparent for customers while ensuring security and improving efficiencies. The transactions reach their destination account in minutes, with certainty of settlement, and with end-to-end visibility over the journey of the payment.

Himadri Chatterjee, President, Transaction Banking, Axis Bank, said, “While there have been significant innovations in domestic payments, cross border remittance has seen limited developments. Using APIs and distributed ledger technology, there is an opportunity to radically change the way international payments are handled. We are excited with the potential the technology has to bring innovative services to the market and help us enhance value to our customers.”

Gautam Jain, Global Head, Digitization and Client Access, Transaction Banking, Standard Chartered, said, “The successful launch of our commercial cross-border payment service marks a significant milestone in the financial industry’s progress in applying distributed ledger technology for corporates. We are incredibly proud to be leading the way in this area. This affirms our commitment to digitization and innovation as we continuously look at new ways to add value for our clients and their ecosystems; in this case, corporates trading between Singapore and India.”
