    As Ripple nears its final decision, it continues to make headlines. Every other day, there have been updates. Since the beginning of the case, the XRP community has been kept in the loop. A few individuals, such as former federal prosecutor James K. Filan, founder of CryptoLaw John Deaton, and Ripple’s general counsel Stuart Alderoty, have informed the community at each stage of the litigation. Priority has been given to transparency with the community.

    Antony Welfare, author and CBDC advisor at Ripple, has something to say about the XRP case. Let’s explore. 

    Ripple Advisor throws light on Private XRP Ledger and CBDC Projects

    Anthony Welfare, the senior adviser for CBDC and international relationships at Ripple, has thrown light on the company’s alleged “state cryptocurrency” efforts. Projects being planned with Bhutan and Palau are currently at an advanced level. 

    According to the Ripple adviser, private versions of XRP Ledger are being utilized to work on these and other CBDC or stablecoin projects. When asked if XRP could be utilized as a bridge currency for CBDC trades between states’ private networks, the advisor did not respond directly. Nonetheless, he asserted that any subsidiary XRPL chain may be connected to the primary one, making all CBDCs “cross-border.”

    How does XRPL work? 

    XRP Ledger is a decentralized platform enabling peer-to-peer asset transfer. A consensus mechanism certifies network connections, allowing the network to be extremely fast and secure. It implies that you can utilize the Ledger and build on it fast and easily without having to rely on various third-party solutions for coding, hashing, and compiling. You may create dApps and DeFi solutions, launch newer tokens and encourage newer, quicker transactional methods.

    Private XRP and XRPL

    Some members of the community have charged Ripple management with developing and utilizing private XRPL chains as well as the existence of a unique private form of XRP. Doubters assert that the cost of this private XRP is more than the market pricing for the coin. Former Ripple director of developer relations Matt Hamilton further refuted this theory.

    The creator claims that there is only one XRP and that it is exclusively on the main chain, despite the existence of private XRPL chains for CBDC and stablecoin initiatives. Hamilton came to the conclusion that private XRP might either exist in a totally isolated system or that its price would be regulated by market forces.

    To conclude, 

    They have had a lot of questions. Some speculate that it will take a long time for XRP prices to rise and wonder if it is sensible to dump it. Some have speculated on what all of this implies and what it means for the investor.
