Ripple Network

The first global real-time gross settlement network

Overview

Ripple’s network is the only blockchain bankers’ network with defined rules, standards and governance for cross-border payments. Banks join Ripple’s network to facilitate real-time cross-border payments with complete certainty, no settlement risk and end-to-end tracking.

Advisory Group


Since 2015, Ripple and an advisory team made up of a diverse set of leading transaction bankers have been building the Ripple Network Rulebook. This group actively advises on maintaining and enhancing the rules and standards as the network grows.
