About XRP

Ripple's consensus ledger (the "XRP Ledger") is a decentralised cryptographic ledger powered by a network of peer-to-peer servers. The native digital asset on the XRP Ledger is called XRP. XRP can be used to purchase goods and services, or sent to another user on the network. Transactions on the XRP Ledger settle in 4 seconds.

Ripple is unique in that it doesn't require mining like other Proof-of-Work cryptocurrencies. Rather, all 100 billion XRP were created at Ripple's inception, and no more can be created. This means that transaction fees on the Ripple network are very low, or even non-existent.

The main use case for Ripple is as a "bridge currency" to facilitate global payments. For example, if someone wants to send money from Japan to the United States, they can convert their Japanese Yen into XRP, and then send the XRP to a US-based exchange where it can be converted back into USD.  This process is much faster and cheaper than traditional methods such as wire transfers. Ripple has partnerships with several major financial institutions, including American Express, Santander, UBS, and others.
