XRP is at the number 6 spot in terms of market capitalization, making it one of the largest cryptocurrencies out there.
XRP (XRP/USD) has experienced an increase in trading volume by 40% in the last 24 hours and an increase in its value by 56% throughout the past week.
This cryptocurrency is native to the XRP Ledger, which was launched in 2012 to provide a more energy-efficient alternative to Bitcoin (BTC/USD).
XRP’s recent growth and path to the top
Throughout the past week, XRP has experienced growth in terms of both trading volume as well as value.
XRP was created as a payment system to essentially replace the pre-existing, traditional banking system.
RippleNet is a platform that was developed to enable banks, and financial institutions access to a real-time gross settlement system that led to secure as well as instant financial transactions globally.
Ripple is a San Francisco startup company that develops software that can be used by banks to facilitate quick and global financial transactions.
Ripple is, however, a completely independent and separate company from XRP, as XRP is a digital asset built for payments and exists independently from Ripple.
However, Ripple news can still affect the value of XRP, and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Ripple Labs lawsuit case news has affected it.
Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse said that the cost of his firm’s lawsuit with the SEC would be above the nine-figure mark, well over $100 million, and in an interview with Ryan Selkis, CEO of crypto analytics firm Messari, he said that Ripple Labs is representing the whole industry by taking on the SEC.
