Crypto exchanges that manage ODL-based corridors continue to increase XRP’s liquidity.
Two out of five of these platforms show figures that are about to overtake the current peaks and establish new ones.
Meanwhile, Ripple’s main partner in Japan, SoftBank, is investing a significant amount of money in “Chinese Uber” – the car-sharing giant Didi and in particular its AV subsidiary, according to TechCrunch.
In particular, SoftBank had previously also supported Uber.
XRP liquidity index on the way to reach a new ATH
The Twitter bot, which regularly reports on the status of XRP’s liquidity indices in four of the five corridors of ‘On-Demand Liquidity’, has shared data that is likely to be welcomed by the community.
Two of the ODL sites – Mexico-based Bitso (XRP / MXN) and BTC markets in Australia (XRP / AUD) – show figures that are very close to setting new XRP liquidity highs.
Recently, the Twitter bot added another ODL corridor to its regular reports – the Luxembourg-based Bitstamp Exchange (XRP / EUR).
SoftBank makes a big investment in Didi
According to TechSrunch, Didi’s AV car-sharing unit has raised $ 500 million in investment from Ripple’s main Japanese partner, SoftBank.
Didi tested his autonomous driving vehicles from the AV department for several years, before allowing the subsidiary to become an independent company in the market.
The new investment will allow the new AV company to focus on the safety of its self-driving cars – there have been two fatal crash attempts.
In addition, the investment will be spent on better research and development and road testing for new vehicles operating without human drivers.
MoneyGram merges with Uber
Earlier, it was reported that another of Ripple’s main partners, the money transfer giant MoneyGram, had joined forces with Uber.
To help mitigate the effects of the worldwide pandemic crisis, MoneyGram will provide discounts on remittances worldwide for Uber drivers and couriers.
