The transaction volume of the ODL solution or RippleNet is unclear. While RippleNet does not leverage XRP by default, its customers have an option to use it. On the other hand, ODL leverages the XRP token by default.
In November 2019, Ripple had mentioned that over two dozen customers use its ODL solution, including MoneyGram and Viamericas. According to an earlier The Block report, most of these customers receive Ripple’s incentives for utilizing the solution.
Currently, The ODL solution supports the markets of Australia, the Philippines and Mexico. Ripple recently noted that support for Brazil is “coming soon.” Additional corridors across the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, Middle-East, Africa and Latin America are also in progress for this year.
