Navigating the Multi-Asset Landscape
As we rapidly move towards a multi-asset reality, businesses and consumers will need to manage a diverse portfolio of assets, including fiat currencies, cryptocurrencies, Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs), Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), and more.
It is crucial for businesses to be able to quickly and easily move in and out of these distinct assets, regardless of platform user numbers, trading volume, and market efficiency – factors that may impact liquidity. Ensuring that businesses don’t have to sacrifice value to execute transactions like affordable, real-time cross-border payments is a key aspect of this.
Crypto and digital assets can also enhance transparency and facilitate treasury functions. These use cases hinge on interoperability, which requires strong on- and off-ramps between crypto and fiat currencies and deep pools of liquidity between asset pairs—or a crypto asset that bridges smaller pools.
Optimizing Crypto Liquidity with Ripple’s Solution
Liquidity Hub was developed in response to the gaps and inefficiencies associated with bridging the worlds of crypto and fiat. It functions as either a standalone solution or an extension of Ripple’s cross-border payments solution, leveraging its global network to provide partners access to payout rails worldwide.
As a turnkey solution for enterprises, Liquidity Hub is designed to easily and efficiently source digital assets from the broader crypto market. The goal is to make it as frictionless as possible for businesses looking to enhance liquidity, power crypto payments and operations, or support end-customers interested in buying, selling, or holding crypto.
Unlocking Capital and Simplifying Liquidity Management
Liquidity Hub is available 24/7/365 and leverages smart order routing to source a variety of digital assets at optimized prices across multiple liquidity venues, including market makers, exchanges, and OTC desks. These deep liquidity pools from multiple providers ensure that liquidity is sourced when needed – from USD to BTC, ETH, ETC, BCH, and LTC.
By optimizing crypto pricing and liquidity across asset pairs, businesses can achieve significant cost savings on high-volume transactions, such as treasury management. Importantly, Liquidity Hub reduces the need to pre-fund capital positions to source liquidity or transactions within multiple venues, freeing up previously trapped capital for other business areas.
The platform simplifies sourcing and managing liquidity across several venues, and its streamlined API enables businesses to quickly implement their crypto strategies without time-consuming integrations and resource investments. Once live, Liquidity Hub eliminates complex multi-venue management requirements, allowing businesses to access digital assets in one place, while also offering optimized pricing and stability to protect against market volatility and price swings.
