Ripple is a payment protocol created in 2012 by Ripple Labs for currency exchange and transactions. It is used by government financial institutions in Australia, Canada, and Israel. The platform has the native token XRP. As of July 2, 12:40 UTC, the asset is trading at $0,313, down by 0,45% per day, according to Binance.

At the end of June, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse said that the company would leave the US market if it lost a legal battle against the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The regulator accused Ripple of selling unregistered securities under the guise of XRP tokens in December 2020.
