About rebranding an existing product lineRipple representatives said in an interview with the Japanese edition of Morningstar. The xRapid cross-border payment system based on the XRP token will be called “liquidity on demand”.
“Instead of buying xCurrent or xVia, customers willConnect to the RippleNet network on-premises or in the cloud, and instead of purchasing xRapid, they will use liquidity upon request. These are not new products, but rebranding of existing products. This is a small change that will not affect our customers in any way. ” - stated in Ripple.
The company claims that rebranding is intended to emphasize its mission to create a full-fledged payment network, rather than a set of disparate products.
