Together with Visa, the two companies will work toward building new solutions that will lead to fast, cheap and efficient money flow between countries.
To that end, Prajit Nanu, co-founder, and CEO of InstaReM said they would begin issuing out cards to new partners within the first month of joining the program down from nine months it used to before the partnership.
The head of Visa’s Digital Partnership in Asia Pacific Hamish Moline said:
“Even with all the digital forms of payment that exist today, transferring money internationally can still be a time-consuming, inefficient process. We are keen to work together to tackle an area of payments where there is still a lot of opportunities to bring innovation to the customer experience.”
XRP/USD price action points to bulls, and at stop rates, prices are stable. Because of our previous guidance, it is likely that XRP prices will expand over the weekend, confirm the bull bar of Jan 30. Subsequently, this shall set in motion the next wave that will pump prices back towards 34 cents and most importantly above 40 cents.
It is easy to see why. Notice that the past two bars do confine XRP prices inside Jan 30 high low. From an effort versus result point of view, this is bullish. Already, there is a long lower wick hinting of buy pressure in lower time frame meaning our trade conditions will likely be true in due course. Should prices rally above 34 cents, then risk-off traders can buy on dips with first targets at 40 cents and later Dec 2018 highs of 60 cents.
Technically, bulls have an upper hand as mentioned above. But, from an effort versus results, approach, we first need to see gains above 32 cents confirming buy pressure of Jan 30. Volumes should preferably exceed 47 million on the upper end and 15 million current averages on the lower end. Moves as such will lay the building blocks for 40 cents and 60 cents.
