Ripple’s  XRP Has Just Turned 10 Years Old!


Arthur Britto, David Schwartz and Jed McCaleb, co-founders of Ripple Labs, started working on the XRP Ledger back in 2011.

On June 2, 2012, Britto submitted lines of code that created 100 billion tokens that were then called "XNS."

As of today, more than 72 million ledgers have been confirmed on the XRP Ledger, with the total number of transactions surpassing 807,000.

In late 2020, Ripple was sued by the SEC for allegedly selling XRP illegally. The case, which is expected to have big implications for the entire industry, has not yet been resolved.
