What is XRP?

XRP is an independent digital asset, native to the Ripple Consensus Ledger. With proven governance and the fastest transaction confirmation of its kind, XRP is the most efficient settlement option for financial institutions and liquidity providers seeking global reach, accessibility and fast settlement finality for interbank flows.

While XRP is not required to transact on Ripple, it is uniquely positioned to create more competitive foreign exchange (FX) markets for cross-border payments.
