The flow of good news for Ripple (XRP) doesn't seem to stop and this time the blockchain payment's startup has collaborated with the Dallas-based giant for money transfer - MoneyGram.

According to a press release, MoneyGram will test Ripple's xRapid service due to its claimed speed and cost efficiency.

The company says XRP remains the most efficient digital asset for payments with transaction fees at just fractions of a penny, compared to Bitcoin fees of about $30 per transaction. MoneyGram has shown great trust in Ripple and has stated that Ripple's average transaction time of 2 to 3 seconds is considerably lower than other major cryptocurrencies. The CEO of Ripple stated that the company will probably build effectiveness and enhance administrations to MoneyGram's clients.
