The company continues to conduct transaction tests with Ripple's blockchain technology, but CEO and president Hikmet Ersek has expressed a lack of enthusiasm for pursuing bitcoin as a currency it wants to handle in its operations. That viewpoint is based mostly on the fact Western Union is not seeing a major demand from its customers to offer a cryptocurrency service. "It’s still early days and things are evolving," Fellahi said of any blockchain advancements with Ripple. "We’re very open to the future potential and we’re testing blockchain-related technologies on several fronts, including transaction processing, settlement, working capital optimization, reg-tech and digital identity."
