Santander goes live with SWIFT gpi


Recommended Posts

"80% of Santander cross-border payments to be on SWIFT gpi by year-end

The leading retail and commercial bank, Santander, has gone live on SWIFT’s global payments innovation (gpi) service in Spain, the UK, Argentina and Poland. It will go live in Chile and Mexico before the end of the year, with further countries planned for 2019."

MMMMM are we sure that SWIFT GPI is not a Ripplenet mask? Or are Santander just playing the field?

These types of replies are what make me wonder if you guys are actually doing legitimate research on everything as well as reading what was actually just posted. Swift GPI has not been "launched out o

Same payment corridors as their onepayfx... Which runs on ripple. The evidence is stacking up everywhere that swift gpi is using ripple.

Or maybe Santander decided ripple net is not worth it and has decided to go for swift? People here who keep denying that possibility are living in a bubble!

That's a bit of stretch...

Santander is so bullish on Ripple that it feels like there has to be more to the story. 

Ok read this from Ripple website: 

Metzger said that Banco Santander has plans to continue to roll out OnePay FX in more countries in the coming months. Today, the mobile application is available in the U.K. The service also provides on-demand international payments for customers in Spain, Brazil and Poland.

And then compare to what SWIFT says: 

The leading retail and commercial bank, Santander, has gone live on SWIFT’s global payments innovation (gpi) service in Spain, the UK, Argentina and Poland. It will go live in Chile and Mexico before the end of the year, with further countries planned for 2019.

A bit of a coincidence??

Or it's a desperate act of Swift to publish this info.

There's no similar news item about gpi and a single bank in their recent news stream.

Why do they explicitly report about Santander?

Of course Swift aims to sow distrust and doubt.

And of course Santander is using gpi. They're a Swift member, why shouldn't they use what Swift offers to members?

To me this is good news. It shows Swift's growing desperation.

seems like there's confusion-

SWIFT (basic or GPI upgrade) is already in place and has massive liquidity.

RippleNet (xRapid, XRP, etc) network is still being built and currently only has a fraction of SWIFT's liquidity.

You can't expect large banks/corporations to begin using a product that essentially has no liquidity.  There's still much work to be done.
