What is Ripple?

Ripple is a platform which uses an open payment network. It uses XRP, its official cryptocurrency in making transactions.

Ripple’s aim is to decentralize the digital currency approach. They want the money do what the internet did for all other types of information.

Payment systems today are where email was in the early ‘80s. Every provider built their own system for their customers and if people used different systems they couldn’t easily interact with each other. Ripple is designed to connect different payment systems together. – David Schwartz, Chief Cryptographer, Ripple

Although Ripple wants to make transactions move freely, it doesn’t mean it is all free. It charges a really small portion of a Ripple from each transaction, which is still fairly low compared to banks and other financial institutions.
