What is the price prediction for XRP?

Copy link to section

The average Ripple price prediction values the coin at $1 by the end of 2025. Things like the economic climate, establishment support and acceptance, and the crypto market as a whole can all impact the price.

It’s best to take predictions with a grain of salt but you can use expert estimates to help you understand the weight of opinion about a coin.

What is XRP?

Copy link to section

Ripple is a cryptocurrency that’s used to transfer money around the world. It’s owned by Ripple Labs, an online payment system that allows people to send money instantly and at very low rates. The XRP coin is an intermediary that allows easy switching between currencies.

Ripple uses the XRP coin as a liquidity source and bridge currency to enable simple and instant global transactions. Ripple sells its global payment mechanism to financial institutions and banks, making the service almost free for individual users.

How does XRP work?

Copy link to section

XRP uses a blockchain, a form of digital ledger, to make, track, and store transactions. It is similar to the way Bitcoin works, but rather than requiring complex computer software to verify new transactions, it submits them for review to a group of trusted users. Once approved by 80% of this group, the transactions are confirmed.

There are significant advantages to using this technology for cross-border payments compared to traditional wire transfers. It takes seconds, rather than the days it can take a bank to complete a wire transfer, the cost is minimal, and there are no limits to who can make a transfer and when.

How is the XRP network secured?

Copy link to section

The Ripple network uses the Ripple Protocol Consensus Algorithm (RPCA) to make things tick. There is some debate as to whether RippleNet is centralised or decentralised, because the founding team holds and controls the majority of XRP in circulation.

Some cryptocurrency commentators feel this makes them a central governing authority, which goes against what cryptocurrencies are supposed to stand for. Others feel this gives RippleNet more stability.

What is XRP used for?

Copy link to section

Ripple offers a faster and cheaper way to send money around the world. Its platform allows for the transfer of money, including fiat currencies like GBP, USD, or EUR and cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.

Its cryptocurrency, XRP, is used as a bridge currency, which means financial institutions do not need to hold multiple currencies. Instead, they can transfer a currency into XRP, send XRP to wherever it needs to go, and then exchange it into the destination currency.

Why does XRP have value?

Copy link to section

XRP’s value comes from two sources; its crucial role in international money transfers and the coins’ scarcity.

XRP is a deflationary cryptocurrency, which means that the amount of coins in circulation is constantly falling. 100 billion XRP were minted when the project was launched and no more will be created. Instead, a small amount of coins are destroyed as part of every transaction.

This means that one day all XRP will be destroyed, although it is estimated that at the current rate of destruction, it would take at least 70,000 years.

Who created XRP?

Copy link to section

The main two figures in XRP’s development are Chris Larsen and Jed McCaleb. They co-founded Ripple – originally known as OpenCoin – and came up with the idea of using cryptocurrency to facilitate money transfers.

Larsen remains part of the Ripple project and has been caught up in a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) investigation into the company. McCaleb, meanwhile, is long gone, having moved on to form a new payments provider, Stellar, in 2013.

Where can I buy XRP?

Copy link to section

You can buy XRP on either a centralised cryptocurrency exchange (CEX) or decentralized exchange (DEX), depending on its availability. An exchange is a marketplace that allows you to sign up, deposit your money, and buy some crypto, just as you would with a stock trading platform.

Our guide on how & where to buy XRP explains step-by-step exactly how to get started with a reliable crypto exchange, or via one of the most popular decentralized exchanges.

Most cryptocurrency brokers allow you to keep the coins you buy in your account. However, you may want to sign up for a dedicated crypto wallet for some extra security.

Are there any other ways to invest in XRP?

Copy link to section

The simplest way to invest in XRP is to buy it outright. However, another option is to simply open a crypto account. Crypto accounts are like regular bank accounts and allow you to store a variety of currencies, send and receive payments, earn interest on savings, and spend freely with a credit card.

You can also invest in crypto more generally through a crypto ETF or a crypto fund. These are financial instruments that give you exposure to a group of leading cryptocurrencies, more suited to high net worth individuals.

Are there any XRP alternatives?

Copy link to section

There are a few Ripple alternatives and other cryptocurrencies have attempted to imitate it. Ripple is one of the most popular cryptos, but others offer something different. Below is a selection of Ripple alternatives.

  • Stellar (XLM). Stellar is a platform for moving money worldwide.
  • Nano (NANO). Nano is an economically friendly way to move money.
