Ripple Labs Inc.'s product manager – Asheesh Birla, was recently interviewed by CNBC's Crypto Trader. The one-on-one interview session addresses XRP (XRP) use cases and Ripple Labs Inc. suite of software solutions, including xRapid and xCurrent.
Why Financial Institutions Prefer to Use Ripple Products Using XRP  When Asheesh Birla was asked why financial institutions prefer to use Ripple products such as xRapid, which uses XRP, said volatility and costs overall are much lower than those of the fiat
Birla said: " they asked their customers – and using xRapid, the volatility used by their end customers, which xRapid clients use, is only a couple of seconds So they asked them how they feel about a few seconds of XRP volatility. "
Overwhelmingly, they said they would prefer some seconds of XRP volatility compared to fiat currencies for days or even weeks. They said this because the volatility of a couple of seconds of XRP compared to the volatility of a week of waiting fiat is a huge difference. They would prefer the few seconds of XRP volatility each day.
According to the company, smaller startups and financial institutions are more likely to see significant savings using xRapid for international agreements. The head of Ripple's products also compared the utility of XRP and that of Bitcoin (BTC) and responded to the criticism that XRP (XRP) is not decentralized due to the direct involvement of Ripple Labs Inc. with the digital currency and the fact that the company owns sixty percent of the total supply of money, with ninety-one percent stuck in commitment.
