XRP Ledger is decentralized cryptographic ledger just like blockchain network of other cryptocurrencies that is powered by a network of peer-to-peer servers. Home to XRP, Ripple is the one that works on the development of this ledger.

The system is made of trusted validators that Ripple claims has

“better distribution of authority than other decentralized systems.”

It further uses a unique consensus algorithm that does not require time and energy of mining, used by Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrency systems.

Instead of ‘proof of work’ or proof of stake’, the XRP Ledger has a set of “trusted validators” that agree on which transactions happen in what order.

Recently, 200,000 ETH were also transferred over the XRP Ledger.

Here, two 100k ETH transaction, initiated by the same addresses, were sent through XRP Ledger, burning XRP in the process as ‘each and every transaction on the XRPL burns XRP.’
