Can anyone use XRP to get USD/EUR directly?

Recommended Posts

I understand that banks use the Interledger to move around euros, dollars etc. I also know that the Interledger/ripple platforms are open source and that anyone can run a ripple server.

But can I, for example, have an Euro account on a bank connected to the ripple network? Because right now the only way I think I can do something like that is using the kraken (or any other exchange) API.

 @Findeton You can do the same in the EU also. You just have to have the EU bank account first and then be a member of an exchange capable of sending to EU banks. Technically if you had Bitrex, Gatehub or any US based exchange, you can send money to them, but XRP and then transfer that to say, Bitstamp which is an EU exchange, then as a member of Bitstamp you can then withdrawal to your EU bank. You basically save maybe $40 in transfer fees.
