Ripple Is Testing The Private Version Of XRP Ledger To Power CBDCs

It’s been just revealed that Ripple is testing a private version of the XRP Ledger that is designed to offer central banks a solution for powering digital currencies.

The project is called the Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) Private Ledger, and it will utilize the same blockchain technology as the XRP Ledger.

This will give it the ability to handle tens of thousands of transactions per second (TPS), as well as “the potential to scale to hundreds of thousands TPSs over time,” according to a new announcement from Ripple.

80% of central banks investigate the potential of sovereign-backed cryptos

Ripple also noted that 80% of central banks are investigating the potential of sovereign-backed cryptos.

It’s also been revealed that the CBDC Private Ledger offers banks the necessary transaction privacy, security, and interoperability with the legacy financial system to further explore that option.

David Schwartz, who is Ripple’s chief technology officer and one of the original architects of the XRP Ledger, explained that the new CBDC Private Ledger gives central banks more privacy, security, and proficiency in their transactions.

“The XRPL has been running smoothly for 8+ years w/ billions of $ at stake,” he said.

He continued and said: “The CBDC Private Ledger ensures transaction privacy and security controls combined w/ the reliability and payments proficiency of the XRPL – the best of both worlds.”

XRP Ledger uses less energy, is less expensive, and is “61,000 times more efficient than public blockchains that leverage proof-of-work.”
