Xumm Launch won’t Have Any Effect on XRP Price, Assures XRPL Labs’ Lead Developer

  • XRPL Labs’ developing a banking app called Xumm based on the XRP Ledger and Interledger Protocol (ILP)
  • Already down by 14%, Don't expect Xumm to have any positive effect on the XRP price

Recently, Ripple’s Xpring initiative XRPL Labs introduced its new banking product called Xumm.

This application will allow users to store both their fiat and digital currency in their accounts without any bank intervention. However, for this, they need a license that XRPL Lab’s lead developer Wietse Wind said they are working for and will be holding relevant meetings next week.

A Banking App without a bank

Xumm is not just for crypto as been emphasized by Wind who says they aren't building a crypto wallet rather a banking app but without a bank.

It’s a banking app based on the XRP Ledger and Interledger Protocol (ILP).

“We’re going to help users get started with a really secure, user-friendly set-up guide in-app. And there’s no way you can, pardon my French, fuck this up. There’s no way. We’re gonna make it really easy,” said Wind.

But not just for users. According to Wind, it will also allow enterprises to easily connect with their consumers.

“When licensed, our gateway/bridge may definitely be a great fit for business use cases (if they want to use XRPL payments),” added Wind.

XRP Down by 14%, Don't Expect Xumm to have any Positive Effect on Price

However, if you are expecting XRP price to benefit from this, then you are wrong as Wind “temper those expectations” for you.

Xumm, Wind believes is going to be “one of many” things that will potentially help the ecosystem grow along with the utility and use cases, however, he “ensures” that a “Big Bang” won’t be happening.

For starters, Xumm will allow people to pay and be paid using the XRPL, so it won’t have any effect on the price, except for may be speculation.

From here, “if everything goes the right way” of course, the number of users, payments, DEX exchanges, and liquidity will grow “slowly.”

This is when XRP price may have an effect but Wind says it will be about impossible to track that appreciation in the value of the digital asset as it is about more usage, more liquidity, and more demand.

Currently, XRP price is deep red. Down by 13.38 percent in the USD at $0.338 while trading at 2894 sats. The third largest digital asset is actually down by over 4.73 percent till date in 2019.
