Since the start of the year, the XRP / AUD index has risen sharply. Its previous record was 15.379 million. Figures are up despite the action of XRP's fixed prices . XRP liquidity in the Australian BTC market gained ground in the first week of January 2020.
However, in the last week of April leading up to the first week of May, the numbers collapsed coinciding with the downward movement of XRP prices . As the cryptocurrency market entered recovery mode, the figure for XRP / AUD improved and since then has maintained a steady rise despite a minor withdrawal.
Recently, Australia-based BTCMarkets CEO Caroline Bowler revealed that the exchange had grown 5% week over week and that it had on average 84% growth and an increase 15% of the volume since January.
“… What we see with ODL, just to give you this context, I think we've been growing about 5% week over week since January in terms of volume from our trading on XRP . ”
There is an increase in adoption by companies of the blockchain company Ripple and the cryptocurrency XRP in Australia for cross-border payments in Australia. Ripple joined the stock market at the end of 2019 and according to its CEO Bowler, the growing volume had a "positive" impact on the price of XRP . She also added that,
“Most people recognize the problems of cross-border payments, especially in Australia where companies often have to pay suppliers based outside the country. Using XRP to reduce transaction costs and make same day payments brings real benefits and solves the problems of the existing system. XRP is a bridge between traditional financial institutions and the new world of fintech. "
Interestingly, it's not just the Australian corridor that has seen an increase in liquidity. Even the Mexican corridor with XRP / MXN on Bitso also soared to 37.15 million on May 27.
In addition to these developments, Ripple has also released a billion XRP for sale to investors from the company's escrow account.
