Ripple is a company in the United States currently developing and deploying the Ripple Protocol to businesses and banks all over the world.

Ripple's base blockchain token XRP was first created and released in 2012. The centralised nature of the token doesn’t fit the existing decentralized cryptocurrency frameworks and is under constant scrutiny from investors and traders in the financial and cryptocurrency markets.

Ripple has a total supply of over 100 billion tokens. With only 40 billion in circulation, Ripple corporation still holds the lions share and release over 1 billion per month into the market to funds it’s business activities.
