American Express and Ripple are working together to make instant cross-border payments a reality using blockchain technology. SMEs and businesses worldwide can benefit from the innovation of blockchain-powered instant payments, helping to drive global commerce.

This is the use case for American Express’ use of Ripple’s blockchain solutions for payments. SMEs still make up the backbone of most major and developing economies, and they are most impacted by the inefficient, costly global payment system. Companies like American Express and Ripple are innovating to provide businesses the ability to transfer value as easily as sending an email.
