Ripple Labs created the cryptocurrency known as XRP. It is mostly utilized in the Ripple payment system, which helps financial institutions conduct quick and inexpensive cross-border transactions.

The high transaction speed and scalability of XRP make it ideal for real-time global settlements. Although XRP is not mined like Bitcoin, it is distributed using a consensus process, and its main application is as a bridge currency to speed up international transactions.
