Ripple website gets overhauled XRP’s big game

Not long back, the logo of XRP has been changed. Now, the entire Ripple website has been revamped. Out of a number of changes, the biggest one is RippleNet comprising a drop down of global payments, on-demand liquidity, and join the network.

Giving XRP, the digital asset for payments to the center stage, it explains how XRP provides banks and payment processors, faster settlements at low cost.

The world’s 3rd largest cryptocurrency is certainly fast as in comparison to the traditional system that takes 3 to 5 days and Bitcoin with more than an hour, XRP takes only 4 seconds to settle payments.

Moreover, when it comes to scalability, it mentions, “XRP consistently handles 1,500 transactions per second, 24×7, and can scale to handle the same throughput as Visa.” Also, it has been covered that XRP has a “Throughput capacity over 50,000 transactions/second.”


However, a member in the XRP chat room did share in part,

“50,000 tx/s has been touted before. However, that number is produced when using already established high-frequency payment channels.”

In the meantime, SBI Ripple Asia has been successfully registered as the licensed electronic payments agent with the Kantou Bureau of Japan’s Ministry of Finance. The consortium has already got about 60 Japanese banks that will begin to use Ripple technology for cross-border payments.

Also, the MoneyTap, a blockchain-based settlement app has gotten one step forward to its launch. Reportedly, MoneyTap has received the regulatory clearance from the Japanese Ministry of Finance. This will only further facilitate the growth of Ripple and in turn XRP.

Moreover, the CEO of Wirex, Pavel Matveev Tweeted a video stating, “At an ATM in #Japan – Converting #XRP to #cash in seconds.”

Back in July Wirex added XRP to its crypto Visa card that supports over 50 cryptos is available for the users in European Economic Area (EEA).
