About XRP

XRP is known as a Real Time Gross Settlement System which is a ‘currency exchange and remittance network’ that independent servers validate. The currency traded is known as XRP and transfer times are immediate. XRP can be exchanged for most other currencies with its unique selling proposition being the avoidance of fees and wait times often associated with banks. It isn’t made up of a blockchain but rather a Hash Tree and its currency can’t be mined because there are a finite number of coins – 100 billion. XRP is popular with banks and institutions though the XRP token isn’t necessarily required for each transaction.

The XRP price page is part of The CoinDesk 20 that features price history, price ticker, market cap and live charts for the top cryptocurrencies.
