Ripple (XRP) promises to revolutionize the global economy by providing the most efficient cross-border payments network the world has ever seen. In it’s quest to usurp Bitcoin’s reign and bring fast and affordable payments to people across the planet, XRP has been lauded as both a game-changer and a liability whose legal classification influences crypto adoption worldwide.
Founded in 2012 by Chris Larsen and Jed McCaleb, Ripple is multifaceted cryptocurrency ecosystem that challenges the limitations of traditional payments networks. Essentially, XRP aims to do for money what the internet did for information, making it accessible, fast, and borderless.
From its revolutionary approach to cross-border payments to its tumultuous relationship with regulatory bodies, Ripple is a force to be reckoned with. While the network provides near-instant transactions that cost less than a penny, XRP is best known for its historic legal battle with the U.S. SEC (Securities and Exchanges Commission).
Whether or not you’re an XRP supporter, Ripple wields significant importance in the crypto market. What is it about Ripple that has attracted the attention of some of the world’s largest banking firms and made it one of the most hotly-discussed altcoins in the crypto space?
Far from being a mere cryptocurrency, Ripple stands at the crossroads of law, technology, and social change.
