Ripple is a tech company based in San Francisco that is focused on making it quicker, easier and more affordable for financial institutions to send payments around the world. Its main goal is to create a global payment network that allows for more efficient payments. The Ripple patented payment network is called RippleNet which is designed to connect payment providers, banks and digital exchanges around the world by providing an independent payment infrastructure.
XRP is the native digital currency of RippleNet, which facilitates quick cross border transfers and payments without the interference of central banks or other financial institutions. It also acts as a bridge between hard-to-match fiat currencies. XRP transactions can be processed in under 4 seconds, which is considerably faster than the transactions time associated with international bank transfers.
Ripple created its own open-source distributed consensus ledger, the XRP ledger (XRPL) which is used for processing and validating network transactions which are publicly recorded on the ledger. Unlike Bitcoin, XRP is not completely decentralised as it is owned and operated by a private company (Ripple). You can buy XRP (Ripple) from the New Zealand Crypto Exchange, Swyftx.

Easy to use, good fees rates, good support...
Easy to use platform, with great customer support.
Been using this platform the last 2-3 years. It is easy to use and user friendly. Wish they would have more trading pairs like other exchanges.
The platform is both user friendly and un-obtrusive. There are no brokers pressuring you to invest more money and Swyftx has a user friendly interface...
Easy to use reliable platform. Helpful friendly support.
