What else is known? The wallet was created by Crossmark in conjunction with RippleX, the development arm of the Ripple fintech company. It integrates features similar to MetaMask, which are specifically tailored for XRP Ledger. Through the use of web browser extensions, the wallet will make it easier to manage transactions, move between networks and access various features and services, and interact with decentralized applications (DApps).

According to the RippleX team, new XRP Ledger-based projects are waiting for a browser-oriented wallet. As more developers and users move away from the Ethereum ecosystem, that demand will only grow, the developers say.

Just as MetaMask has impacted the Ethereum ecosystem, Crossmark aims to bridge the gap between dApps and users of the XRP ecosystem. The goal of the integration is to provide developers with a powerful tool to incorporate XRP Ledger features into web applications, increasing the diversity of the developer solution ecosystem.
