Ripple - Competitor Profile


Ripple offers a global real-time payment system that enables banks and financial institutions around the world to transact cross-border via RippleNet, a decentralized global network of banks and payment providers. The organizations in the network use Ripple’s distributed ledger technology, which provides real-time clearing and settlement of financial transactions. In addition to cross-border transfers, Ripple enables trading of its cryptocurrency, XRP, which is now listed on over 100 digital asset exchanges globally, including Bitstamp, Kraken, Coinone, Bitso, and Coincheck.

Ripple eliminates the need for financial institutions to maintain nostro accounts, where a domestic bank holds a foreign account denominated in foreign currency in order to enable cross-currency settlement. Ripple’s XRP account instead allows customers to make payments with any currency. This results in faster fund transfers, as Ripple can process transactions in three seconds, compared to the three to five days via traditional methods.

Launched in 2012 as OpenCoin, Ripple has raised $293.6m since its inception from investors such as Accenture, CME Ventures, Google Ventures, SBI Group, Santander InnoVentures, and Seagate.
