XRP Network Transfers Billions Within Seconds

With cryptocurrencies continually evolving as well being powered by blockchain, the networks are designed to be improved upon. Showing how adaptable a network can be, Ripple has made some record breaking transactions. Ripple wants to guarantee that XRP transactions can be made at extremely high volumes, along with minimal fees, in record shattering time. The ability to achieve a transaction of tremendous amounts, with low cost, and at a rapid rate is the goal of any financial institution, and Ripple is on a strong path.

According to media outlet, ZyCrypto, two enormous XRP transactions occurred, seeing $760 million and 4.6 billion XRP (estimated to be $1.6 billion) executed on the Ripple network within seconds.

With the stunning transactions recorded, Ripple has shown what their network is capable of, and that the best is yet to come.
