Ripple follows iterative consensus process and hence requires less time for financial transactions compared to the Bitcoin’s. While Bitcoin’s transaction takes 7-40 minutes, Ripple’s transactions will get completed in few seconds! 

Ripple is used by many banking and financial companies such as UniCredit, UBS, Santander, RAKBANK and American Banker. But many banks and companies, though they use the Ripple’s technology they hinder to use the tokens. Ripple has announced that Cuallix, a company involved with Mexican money transfer, will be using XRP, the Ripple currency.
