bKash CEO Kamal Quadir said that the partnership with Ripple will develop the economy of Bangladesh by facilitating the flow of foreign funds through legal channels. According to Cuadir, bKash has a user base of more than 45 million people, and bKash accounts for a third of the country’s money transfers.

The head of bKash said that he is not afraid of Ripple’s legal problems related to the SEC lawsuit. However, many companies refused to cooperate with Ripple for this reason.

Last month, money transfer service MoneyGram announced that it does not use Ripple’s payment solutions to make payments, although it began testing the Ripple ODL platform in 2019.
