Kuwait Finance House started the instant remittance service using Ripple


Announced on Twitter today, Kuwait Finance House or KFH is set to begin the operation of a cross-border instant remittance service using Ripple's underlying technology.

KFH appeared for the first time on the bulletin towards the end of 2018 with the announcement of the future plan to use RippleNet for international transfers. However, on January 7, 2019, the mainstream broke out announcing that they are finally starting "financial functioning" using Ripple's blockchain.

Launched in 1977, Kuwait Finance House is the first Islamic bank in the state of Kuwait and the pioneer bank involving the blockchain era. The bank will have "instantaneous zero-commissions international transfer services" with the Fiat Saudi currency, Saudi Riyal (SAR), where customers can proceed with remittance transactions to the beneficiary account at AL Rajhi Bank, the largest Islamic bank in world based on 2015 data.

In addition, the team also revealed the service expansion plan;

Although it has not been confirmed whether the bank chooses xRapid or xCurrent or RippleNet in today's announcement. However, it is important to note that KFH released a blog post in May 2018 in which it mentioned that KFH will be the first bank to join RippleNet for instant cross-border payment.
