Ripple Adds 10 Financial Services Firms to Blockchain Network

Ripple has struck partnerships with MUFG, BBVA, SEB, Akbank, Yes Bank, Axis Bank, SBI Remit, Star One Credit Union, EZ Forex and Cambridge FX; these new partnerships show Ripple’s reach as they range from Japan, India, Canada and the US; banks were a big part of this new group, as Ripple vice president of product, Asheesh Birla, explained to CoinDesk: “The reason that we chose to work with banks is that they are experts in local regulation. A lot of them have that pull and understand the regulatory environment and we built our product in such a way that it fits within the different regulatory schemes around the world.” Source
