What Is Ripple (XRP)?

Ripple is a real-time gross payment (RTGS) system designed to enable instant global currency transactions. While XRP is the native platform token of the Ripple Ledger, users can still trade in any currency on the platform.

Ripple can be both considered as a cryptocurrency and a digital payment transaction network. It was launched in 2012 and was co-founded by Chris Larsen and Jed McCaleb. For both banks and financial institutions, Ripple is a transaction system for international money and security transfers.

Ripple is the name of the company and the financial network, and XRP is the platform token. XRP is the exchange mechanism between two currencies or networks. It plays the role of a temporary settlement between two currencies.

Ripples Founders

Chris Larsen is a serial entrepreneur and angel investor. He is also the co-founder of several tech start-ups in Silicon Valley. The most famous company founded by Chris is E-Loan in 1996, he was the one who raised the idea of peer-to-peer money lending at the beginning of Web 1. In 2012, he founded Ripple with Jed McCaleb.

On January 4, 2018, Forbes estimated Larsen's worth at USD 59 billion, just behind the founder of Meta. In 2020, he ranked No. 319 in the Forbes 400 list of the richest people in America.

Jed McCaleb has contributed to the early stage of the Bitcoin network. He back then built a peer-to-peer Bitcoin transactions network. In 2012, he founded Ripple with Chris Larsen, aiming to simplify complicated international financial transactions.

How does Ripple (XRP) work?

Ripple is a distributed decentralized financial technology platform. It aims to increase the speed of international transactions so that a frictionless experience to send money globally is provided, including real-time messaging, clearing, and settlement of financial transactions. Through blockchain technology and modern APIs, Ripple enables financial institutions using the Ripple Network to send money globally and instantly.

Products supported by the Ripple Network

xCurrent: xCurrent helps banks to process real-time payments globally so that banks can offer new cross-border payment services to their customers. xCurrent is designed to meet the compliance, risk, and security to fit the demand of banks.

xRapid: xRapid is designed to minimize the liquidity costs like payment services providers and banks. It is very costly to enter emerging markets as a pre-funded local currency account is required. The XRP is created to provide liquidity for businesses. So that banks and payment providers enjoy a more efficient and reliable liquidity option to service cross-border payments.

xVia: xVia enables users to send payments globally with transparency including rich information like the invoices attached. On the other hand, it does not require the users to download any software.

With Ripple Network, customers can quickly access new emerging markets, to expand their businesses to different regions. Also, a huge administration and time cost can be saved through the Ripple Network.

With a single connection, customers can access the best blockchain technology for global payments, payout capabilities in over 40 currencies, and on-demand liquidity as an alternative to pre-funding and operational consistency through a common rulebook.
