Blockchain services provider, Ripple witnessed another development in the expansion of its On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) services. It collaborated with one of the leading cross-border payment firms in Asia.
Tranglo, a cross-border payment hub enabled Ripple’s ODL services across its 25 payment corridors. This would allow remittance providers to process instant cross-border payments without costly pre-funding.
The payment hub announced this decision in a Twitter post shared on 1 March.
We’re thrilled to announce today that we’ve enabled @Ripple‘s On-Demand Liquidity across all our payment corridors.

The recent announcement from Tranglo came after a successful deployment of the pilot ODL in September last year. It incorporated around 250,000 transactions worth $48 million, processed in the first 100 days.
“Our remittance partners want to enter markets as fast as possible at the lowest cost. ODL offers just that: they can start sending payments without locking in funds at different financial intermediaries, which can be costly and time-consuming.
Remittance businesses that sign up for ODL also gain access to both Tranglo Connect and RippleNet, allowing them to better meet increasingly diverse payment needs.”
ODL transactions via Ripple’s global financial network, RippleNet originate from markets including Australia, Japan, Philippines and Singapore, with other markets to follow. In fact, a XRP Markets Report published in January 2022, RippleNet service stood out. The overall transaction count on RippleNet increased substantially during the past 12 months.
