Ripple is the world’s only enterprise blockchain solution for global payments. Today the world sends more than $155 trillion across borders, however, the underlying infrastructure is dated and flawed. Ripple solves this problem. We connect banks, payment providers, corporates, and digital asset exchanges via RippleNet to provide one frictionless experience to send money globally.
