In the same way that Ethereum is the name for the platform that permits transactions in Ether, Ripple is the umbrella term for the cryptocurrency platform whose transactional protocol is really XRP. A distributed ledger network underpins Ripple's design, which means that several parties, rather than a single central authority, are involved in verifying transactions. That enables worldwide transactions, and the transfer costs are significantly less expensive than those of bitcoin. No confirmation time is required while using XRP compared to most other cryptocurrencies. In contrast to the greater community of developers that are working on bitcoin's future development, Ripple was created and is still supported by a single firm, Ripple Labs. There is also no fluctuation in the currency's supply. Ripple was launched with its whole 100 billion XRP coins, unlike Bitcoin, which has an ever-increasing pool with an ultimate maximum and Ethereum, which potentially has no limit. Ripple Labs owns about 60 billion of the tokens and does not need to mine them in order to maintain that quantity. That indicates that Ripple Labs has roughly $20 billion worth of XRP at the present price of around half a dollar per XRP (note: Ripple's pricing collapsed dramatically lately, and may be valued significantly less than $60 billion by the time you read this). To finance future initiatives and acquisitions, it has 55 billion XRP in an escrow account, which permits it to sell up to one billion XRP every month if it so desires. For the time being, Ripple Labs has no intentions to sell such a large sum of bitcoin. As a matter of fact, Ripple Labs is exploring ways to use XRP's underlying technology to speed up financial transactions all across the globe. Unlike other cryptocurrencies, which are based on the notion of decoupling financial transactions from the institutions that issue conventional currencies, Ripple is the exact opposite.
