The XRP Ledger - or XRPL - is a decentralized, permissionless, open-source blockchain that anybody can contribute to, develop on, and transact on.

The XRP Ledger was the first blockchain to allow the tokenization of assets. Regardless of whether the assets are fiat, cryptocurrencies, NFTs, or other forms of tokens, the XRP Ledger's built-in tokenization functionality and built-in decentralized exchange make it ideal for developers to add the decentralized management of tokens to their applications.
