While nothing solid has been hashed out as of yet, the news is a huge step for both parties. Binance is currently the world's top cryptocurrency exchange, and with CZ looking to build the infrastructure that would allow more companies to make use of Binance, partnering with xRapid would allow an easier way to handle regulatory-compliant funds transfers across the globe with the use of banks. xRapid has already partnered with several banks across the globe in an effort to make Ripple's xRapid the next top payment gateway.
