RippleNet, according to Garlinghouse, has now done over 2 million transactions with a nominal value of over $7 billion. Ripple CEO, Brad Garlinghouse also disclosed that 20% of all transactions on RippleNet are now performed using the crypto asset XRP.

In a video stream event seen on Youtube,Ripple’s CEO disclosed a significant amount of upgrades on Ripple’s cross border payments network and its XRP-powered On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) platform.

Garlinghouse said:

“In the three years that RippleNet has been live, we’ve done over two million transactions with a nominal value of over $7 billion. We have hundreds of customers. We’re seeing the greatest traction across Asia… Now it’s also clear our customers are increasingly interested in emerging markets.

These include Latin America, Africa, and the Asian Pacific. I also think we all can agree some of these regions were largely abandoned by traditional correspondent banking over the last decade…

It’s also clear to me that XRP is the key behind RippleNet.

Its speed, its scalability, and its low cost per transaction make it perfect for instant settlement and exchange of value. It was built for payments. It has real utility [and] that’s why it works.

Quick fact:

  • RippleNet is a network of institutional payment-providers that include banks and payment providers that use solutions developed by Ripple to provide a seamless experience to send money worldwide.
  • RippleNet uses a leverage cutting-edge blockchain technology in streamlining payments services that help in reducing costs.
  • It should also be added that On-Demand Liquidity (ODL), Ripple’s XRP-powered cross-border payments product, is available in the US, Mexico, Europe, the Philippines, and Australia.

Ripple CTO Reveals He Made a $15.5 Million Mistake

David Schwartz said that he sold 40,000 Ethereum in 2012 for just $1 each. That stash would have been worth millions.



David Schwartz, chief technology officer at Ripple, revealed on Sunday that he sold 40,000 Ethereum (ETH) for just $1 per token back in 2012—a crypto cache that would be worth roughly $15.4 million today.

At Ethereum’s peak price, that would have been worth $53.6 million.

Schwartz explained that this decision was part of a “derisking plan” he discussed with his wife at the time, adding that he also sold undisclosed amounts of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ripple’s XRP for $750 and $0.01 per coin, respectively.

While not aimed at Schwartz directly, the revelation stemmed from a comment made by another Twitter user, stating that “anyone pushing XRP while derisking is exit scamming.”

“On the derisking, I’m a risk averse person with people who depend on me financially and emotionally. Fate caused me to put a lot of eggs in one basket,” Schwartz replied, adding, “My job, my reputation, Ripple stock, XRP, and so on. I like that basket. But the risk is very high in the entire cryptocurrency space. I’m just too rational to pretend otherwise and suggest others do the same.”

Schwartz is far from the only one who sold their crypto for cheap in the past. Perhaps the most well known example is Laszlo Hanyecz, a programmer from Florida who also contributed to Bitcoin’s source code. In May 2010, he paid 10,000 BTC, worth around $115 million today, for two Papa John’s pizzas.

While such a deal could warrant therapy sessions with a psychologist for many crypto enthusiasts today, 10 years ago it arguably paved a way for Bitcoin to be used as an actual currency. And the rest, as Bitcoin developer Jameson Lopp put it, is history.
