Announcing the news on Monday, Ripple said Algrim will play an “integral” role in the ongoing development of its On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) product which utilizes XRP cryptocurrency for cross-border payments. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“The decision to join the Ripple team was a natural fit — both companies share a vision to enable widespread adoption of digital assets and blockchain technology, which aligns directly with what we’ve been working towards for the past several years,” said Algrim CEO Dadi Armannsson.

Ripple said that Iceland will now serve as one of its engineering hubs, with plans to hire more people from a technical background in the region with a new office.
