Ripple Seals New Partnership to Boost the Expansion of Its Payment System in Europe

Ripple, the US-based cross-border payment firm, has sealed a partnership with Lunu, a crypto-terminal operator and payment provider that specializes in working specifically with premium retailers, so as to provide German high-end retailers with the ability to get paid in cryptocurrency.

The main focus of the partnership is to provide a system that will enable Lunu’s customers to accelerate the acceptance of crypto payments by optimizing the exchange of digital assets to fiat.

According to the report, Lunu currently works with customers including Farfetch, Off-White, Browns, and Steven Stone. The Liquidity Hub that Lunu will leverage was launched by Ripple to support long-term crypto adoption, offering turn-key integration and smart order routing to source digital assets at optimized prices.

As stated in the report, Liquidity Hub customers will be able to seamlessly access crypto from various global venues, such as market makers, exchanges, and OTC desks.

Reacting to the new development, the Director of Product at Lunu, Rajesh Madhaiyan, said:

“For luxury retailers it is vital to stay on top of the latest trends, and when it comes to payments the greatest innovation is coming from the evolving crypto scene. Thanks to Lunu these retailers get access to new, younger, more affluent audiences that are constantly growing in numbers. Our partnership with Ripple has the potential to greatly impact retailers’ customer service offerings by expanding the variety of payment methods and by portraying retailers’ brands as more innovative and progressive.”

Sendi Young, Ripple’s Managing Director in Europe, also said:

“Crypto liquidity is the common thread that underpins all of Ripple’s solutions, from payments to lending and credit. Our ambition is to build a suite of enterprise-oriented crypto products for the benefit of our clients and their customers. This is why we are so excited by this fantastic new use case for Liquidity Hub which will enable Lunu’s luxury retail clients to accept crypto payments at the point of sale.”
