Ripple Wants to Beat Bitcoin in India

Meanwhile, Ripple plans to conduct a large-scale expansion in the Indian market. At the Scaling and Digital Disruption in Fintech conference, Asheesh Birla, Vice President of Product said that his company intends to displace bitcoin and has already prepared a corresponding plan.
He said: “We looked early on at India, and we looked at two billion people – a huge market. And we decided, how do you get two billion people onto Ripple? Do we give the currency away to every Indian, that’s like two billion – just give it away?”

2 billion XRP at the current exchange rate is equivalent to $ 880 million. Initially, the company planned to provide this amount to support the population of the country, most of whom do not have access to banking services, and considered the possibility of allocating billions of dollars in the future.

However, given the difficulties of distributing the cryptocurrency among so many people, Ripple decided to conclude a strategic agreement with the country’s largest banks.

Asheesh Birla explained:
“That was one idea. But then we realised that if you get the top three banks in India onto Ripple, you get 80 percent of the market share. And then we looked at – where’s the future? And so we realised in the next five years, one billion people will become banked in India, but they’ll be banked through their phone. So then we started targeting mobile phone providers and telcos. And so now, I think that in our pipeline we have probably 50 percent of the market in India, either integrated onto Ripple or in the deal, in the sort of pipeline to be signed to India. And guess what, we’re going to take that back to Wells Fargo, and we’re going to say it’s not a better way to send into India than Ripple.”
