Ripple is a cryptocurrency that runs on the network of the same name, with the XRP code used for the token and the XRPUSD price showing the value of each virtual coin in US dollars. The idea for Ripple came from Jed McCaleb and the network was launched in 2012.

It allows companies and individuals to send money worldwide with minimal fees and waiting time. The system is largely aimed at large, international financial institutions such as banks. More than a hundred banks signed up to Ripple in the first years, but scalability issues with the network mean that the majority of them only use the messaging element of the technology.
Ripple has run into regulatory issues with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission over the sale of tokens. This led to XRP being delisted from some exchanges and affected the Ripple price. However, at the time of writing it can still be purchased on several non-US cryptocurrency exchanges.

Ripple price volatility has been an issue with the XRPUSD token throughout most of its history. The total supply is 100 billion coins and 55 billion of them are held in escrow as a way of ensuring stability. The XRP price has shown much of the volatility seen in the cryptocurrency market in general, with a record surge at the start of 2018 followed by a drop in which the token lost over 90% of its value in just a few months.

From a starting point of less than a cent, the coin rose to close to $4 at one point in early 2018, with massive trading volumes. However, the subsequent fall saw it drop to just $0.26 by September of the same year before it hit $0.12 in March 2020. The Ripple price began a recovery in late 2020, but the ongoing threat of legal action may be one of the reasons that have hampered its climb back to early-2018 levels.

Trading CFDs based on the XRP currency increases the volatility and potential for profits by introducing the concept of leverage to Ripple investing and trading.

In addition, you can buy Ripple directly from a cryptocurrency exchange, although at the time of writing some exchanges don’t offer XRP because of the securities issue in the US. This is a move to consider if you want to benefit from any future XRP price rises, although it also introduces the risk of losing money if the price drops again.
