Ripple is a Cryptocurrency, the network powered by Custom (consensus mechanism based on original technology) algorithm. The original software was developed by Jed McCaleb from US and first released April 1st, 2013. Nowadays the cryptocurrency is managed by the Ripple Labs, Inc., an organization based in the US. Ripple is aiming to serve the Financial Service industry, among the other use cases. The official Ripple website is https://www.ripple.com.
As of today, December 3rd, 2022, out of totally available 99,989,199,669 XRP, 50,260,446,248 are in circulation. It's not possible to mine ripples. The total market capitalization of ripple is $19,909,450,566, the rank among other cryptocurrencies (based on the capitalization) is #7. The current rate of 1 XRP is $0.4 USD; converting to the national currency of Italy, the rate is 0.38 EUR for 1 XRP.
Ripple was designed to eliminate some weak points of the Bitcoin: reliance on centralized exchanges, mining process that consumes a lot of electricity and to perform money transfers much faster. Ripple payment protocol (RTXP) aims to build “secure, instant and almost free global money operations of any size without any chargebacks”. RTXP has such features as payments in any fiat, crypto, or virtual currency; XRP handles 1,500 transactions per second and can scale to 50,000+ per second (same as Visa). Contrary to common misconception, Ripple doesn't use Proof-of-Stake (as well as PoW), the XRP ledger uses its own consensus algorithm, called "Consensus". Unlike most (or even all) other algorithms, there are no rewards for confirming transactions in the Consensus mechanism.
Such network architecture, protocol features and other factors attracted attention from a number of banks and payment institutions. Ripple payment protocol is already used by the Earthport payment system (global money transfer operator specializing in cross-border payment), Euro Exim Bank in the United Kingdom, startups facilitating money transfers like SendFriend, Transpaygo, and various financial companies like FTCS, JNFX, etc. There is also a number of partnerships with important names in the financial industry announced: HSBC, Banca Santander, Standard Chartered Bank, the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG), and others.
