Hex Trust has integrated with the XRP Ledger (XRPL), a decentralized blockchain network managed by a diverse global community of developers and businesses. This partnership enables Hex Trust to enhance its user experience by leveraging the exceptional features and benefits provided by the XRPL ecosystem.
The XRPL is a decentralized Layer 1 blockchain that operates on an open-source platform led by a global community of developers. Known for its speed, energy efficiency, and reliability, XRPL has proven to be an advanced blockchain for facilitating the settlement and liquidity of tokenized assets on a large scale. With its user-friendly development environment, low transaction costs, and supportive community, XRPL offers developers a robust open-source foundation for executing even the most complex projects, all while maintaining its streamlined and efficient feature set. XRPL supports a wide range of services and use cases, including payments, decentralized finance, and tokenization.
Since its establishment in June 2012, the XRPL has been a powerhouse in the world of tokenization, settlement, and liquidity. Its versatile capabilities have enabled a wide range of decentralized applications, spanning from real estate and art to stablecoins, governance tokens, and more. Boasting transaction speeds as fast as 3-5 seconds and costing a mere $0.0002 per transaction, XRPL showcases impressive efficiency and scalability.
The key differentiating factor of the XRPL lies in its innovative Proof-of-Association Consensus Algorithm. This algorithm ensures that designated servers, known as validators, reach a consensus on the order and outcome of XRP transactions every 3-5 seconds. Currently, over 100 validators operate on the ledger, representing universities, exchanges, businesses, and individuals, with the opportunity for anyone to register. This technological advancement has greatly improved the cost, speed, scalability, and environmental sustainability of the XRP Ledger, making it a preferred platform for groundbreaking projects in various domains, including payments, tokenization, gaming, asset custody, NFTs, and DeFi.
Through the integration of XRPL into our core custody platform, Hex Safe, we have expanded our support for users within the XRPL ecosystem. This integration grants both current and prospective Hex Safe customers the opportunity to leverage the benefits of XRPL.
● Access to the native digital asset of the XRP Ledger (XRPL), XRP
● Other fungible tokens through the enablement of the Trust Line functionality
● Support for Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) by integrating the XLS-20 token standard
● The ability to make Partial Payments and integrate Raw Transactions
We believe these enhance the capabilities and opportunities available to our customers, further empowering them within the decentralized landscape.
Hex Trust has an established relationship with Ripple, the leading provider of enterprise blockchain and crypto solutions, and a key contributing community member behind XRPL technology upgrades. This existing partnership includes several noteworthy projects, alongside joint private-public sector engagements across the digital asset industry. In November 2023, Hex Trust joined a consortium of partners to support Ripple and Fubon Bank in demonstrating the settlement of tokenized assets as part of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority's e-HKD Pilot Programme.
Additionally, Hex Trust actively participated in the Ripple and Metaco HK Policy Summit in October 2023, where engaging discussions took place among stakeholders within the virtual assets industry. Alessio Quaglini, our Co-founder and CEO, shared valuable insights on regulatory advancements in Hong Kong and global consensus, while Giorgia Pellizzari, Head of Custody at Hex Trust, shed light on the transformative potential of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) beyond payments.
