CBDCs and Stablecoins

Accelerate payments and reduce costs

The future of money is digital

The Ripple CBDC Platform offers a comprehensive platform for minting, managing, transacting, and destroying CBDCs and stablecoins.

Each solution is built on a private ledger that is based upon XRP Ledger technology—a proven blockchain that has transacted over 70 million times over the course of 10 years and is trusted by financial institutions around the world.

Partnering with Ripple to help create our national digital currency is part of our commitment to lead in financial innovation and technologies, which will provide the citizens of Palau with greater financial access.

How the CBDC Platform works

Step 1

Standard APIs enable integration of the CBDC Platform into existing systems.

Step 2

Banks can use the CBDC Platform's cryptographic multi-sign controls to mint CBDCs or stablecoins.

Step 3

Issuers can directly send CBDCs or stablecoins to authorized accounts, ensuring only valid participants can receive and hold the CBDC or stablecoins.

Step 4

Transactions settle in 2-3 seconds across many use cases. Interoperability enables cross-asset and cross-border transactions when connected to another CBDC or stablecoin.

Step 5

Participants can return funds on the Ripple CBDC Platform to the issuer in exchange for fiat.

Step 6

The CBDC Platform supports the secure destruction of currency, giving the bank full control over supply.
