The mass adoption of digital assets was one of the main goals that the crypto industry set back in 2019, and it remains the same this year as well.

Growing institutional ecosystem around XRP
Anchorage co-founder and president, Diogo Mónica, recently stated that the new addition is part of a growing institutional ecosystem around XRP.
“XRP is the third-largest digital asset by market cap, and there’s an ecosystem of institutions that hold XRP and want a more secure and usable institutional custody solution…” she said.
She continued and explained, “Our support for XRP relied on a range of resources, including ones contributed to and maintained by the team at Xpring, Ripple’s developer platform. We used the rippled open-source server, the node implementation that powers the XRP Ledger maintained by Xpring.”
