Ripple (XRP)

    Ripple is the token of the cryptocurrency platform of the same name, which has been operating since 2012 and is partially centralized. In theory, Ripple's founding company can impede the operation of the network. Practically, the protocol operates in a decentralized manner, capable of supporting other tokens, such as flight miles, trading assets, and mobile minutes.

    Let's look at significant facts about XRP, how its price has changed, how to buy the coin at the best price at, a licensed wallet with an exchange function for RUB or USD.

    Ripple cryptocurrency features

    The Ripple platform token is called XRP. Characteristics of the asset:

    •  Is among the top 10 cryptocurrencies by capitalization;
    •  Provides profitable transfers with low fees in as little as 4 seconds;
    • integrated into Saudi Arabia's national bank RippleNet in 2018;
    • currently used for cross-border transfers by banks in Japan, South Korea, US, UK;
    • a potential competitor to SWIFT (the global banking payments system).

    Before withdrawing XRP from one address to another, the address and tag (payment identifier) must be specified. The tag is provided at the time of the transfer.

    Characteristics of XRP as an asset

    Correlation (synchronicity) between Ripple and major cryptocurrencies is moderate:

    1.  On the one hand, XRP duplicates the upward movement of the crypto market.

    2. On the other hand, it depends on events related to claims of regulators in different jurisdictions against Ripple. 

    For example, in 2020, Ripple was sued by the SEC, the Markets Commission and the U.S. Central Bank. The coin's exchange rate declined, and the resolution of the situation became a driver of good growth.

    Thus, XRP could rise sharply apart from the rest of the digital currency market. It may sag on bad news. Both situations make the asset attractive for portfolio diversification giving the opportunity to lock in windfall profits or buy back a solid coin on the downside.

    Information about the dynamics of XRP:

    • quoted at $0.004-0.005 USD in 2013;
    • rose from 0.28 USD to 1.1 USD from October 2020 to October 2021;
    • 1.84 USD for the first 3 quarters of 2021;
    • XRP historical high in 2018 at 3.27 USD.

    The long-term trend is bullish. Sharp moments associated with external pressure, even hypothetically, could not change the upward trend.
