According to The Daily Hodl, the global freelance market GoLance issued a statement saying that it is using On-Demand Liquidity (ODL), a cross-border payment platform powered by Ripple's XRP, to provide payment support to more than 500,000 users worldwide. GoLance CEO Michael Brooks said, "RippleNet's ODL enables us to make ultra-efficient, low-cost payments, satisfy our customers, and drive our business growth." It is reported that GoLance became a member of RippleNet for the first time this summer. GoLance's partnership with Ripple also allows the company to build relationships with banks and establish new payment corridors over a two-week period. Earlier, the company said that the process took at least six months. Brooks said he hopes to establish new payment channels in places that were previously difficult to access.
