Things are bound to get very interesting where RIpple and XRP are concerned. The payments company has forged a strategic partnership with MoneyGram, a company already looking into using one of its technology products for cheaper and faster money transfers. This new partnership will have some interesting consequences and will undoubtedly get people talking about what all of this means in the long run.
When a strategic partnership is formed between different companies, most people tend to think this is an agreement with an indefinite closure date. That is far from the case where this particular partnership is concerned. Ripple has confirmed it is a two-year deal, albeit that initial term can be extended later on. It will primarily depend on what both parties can bring to the table and whether or not the end results please everyone involved.
