XRP is a digital asset and cryptocurrency that was created by Ripple Labs Inc., a technology company specializing in the development of payment and real-time gross settlement systems. XRP was designed to facilitate faster, low-cost international transactions, offering a streamlined solution to existing payment systems that can be slow and fraught with fees.

As of this writing, the current price of XRP is $0.67.
