What is Ripple (XRP)?
Ripple is a tech company that provides effective solutions for sending money around the world through its global payment network RippleNet. XRP is RippleNet's native cryptocurrency. It acts as a means of universal liquidity on the network. The platform is open-source, which means that any banking company, payment system and other financial service provider can embed Ripple protocol into their system.
XRP is now the fifth largest cryptocurrency in the world by market capitalization, after Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether stablecoin, and Polkadot. The cryptocurrency was developed from the ground up, using unique solutions and concepts. It has nothing to do with any existing codebases.
The RippleNet concept was developed in Canada in 2004 by Ryan Fugger. The prototype called RipplePay was a new way of making online payments over the Internet. The system was launched only in 2012 and supported by a powerful development team. Ripple Labs is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in London, Singapore, Sydney, Luxembourg, and Mumbai.
The company now has over 300 partners, including high-profile companies like Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, National Australia Bank, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, UniCredit Group, and MoneyGram Inc, one of the world's largest money transfer operators.
Initially, the company created 100 billion coins. Since then, they have been gradually released into circulation. New emissions are prohibited by the protocol rule.
When carrying out transactions in any other currency, the system provides a commission of 0.00001 XRP. This amount protects the system from cyber attacks, making them too expensive.
Every CoinLoan account owner gets a destination tag that is generated together with a Ripple (XRP) deposit address. This unique code is used to determine what account a deposit should be assigned and credited to.
