Frequently Asked Questions

Bitvavo makes Ripple as easy as possible. Answers to a few the most common questions will serve as a kickstart in the world of digital assets.

What is Ripple? Ripple is a company that was founded in 2012 in California. Work is being done here on the payment protocol, which is primarily aimed at streamlining the mutual payment transactions between banks. The currency that can be used on the Ripple blockchain is called XRP.

The biggest and most important difference between Bitcoin and Ripple is the underlying philosophy and purpose of the relevant cryptocurrency. While Bitcoin has been developed with the aim of allowing two parties to carry out transactions directly and on a decentralized basis, Ripple is precisely designed to improve the existing payment system.

A second difference is that Bitcoin can be mined, which means that people or parties can earn Bitcoin by merging transactions into a block and adding it to the blockchain through which transactions are processed. In this way everyone can have Bitcoin if the required service is provided. On the other hand, Ripple has centralized the issue of XRP with all XRP to be issued already created. All created but not yet issued XRP are managed by the Ripple Foundation.
How does Ripple work? Ripple is the payment protocol that is primarily aimed at streamlining the mutual payment transactions of banks. The following example illustrates how this works:

Suppose Mark wants to send money to John. Mark uses the Chilean Peso while John would like to receive Antillean Guilder. The execution of this transaction requires that the Chilean Peso of Mark is first converted into currencies that are accepted by both Mark's bank and John's bank. This will often be a conversion to the USD. After the Chilean Peso has been converted to USD, the value can be transferred to John's bank, which will convert it to the Antillean Guilder upon receipt. The exchange process is a time and cost-intensive process.

The alternative that Ripple proposes is to use XRP as the common currency for this. In addition to the transaction costs of converting XRP being much lower than the USD, transactions can also be processed much faster.

How to store Ripple? You need a wallet in order to store and use Ripple. There are several options for saving and using Ripple.

Hosted Wallet
Hosted wallets are wallets where the access keys to your Ripple are managed by a third party such as Bitvavo. Access to your account is protected by a password, and possibly other advanced security methods. Once you are logged in, you can easily and conveniently manage your Ripple online. Bitvavo offers standard hosted wallets for all digital assets that are offered on the platform. Click here for more information about how Bitvavo saves your digital assets as securely as possible.

Software wallet
A software wallet is a program installed on your computer or any other desired device in order to use and manage your Ripple. By using a software wallet, you have full control over your "private keys" (and therefore your Ripple), so you are not dependent on third parties such as Bitvavo. The software wallet simplifies the process of accessing your Ripple. The risk is that if malicious parties have access to your device, your private keys (and therefore your Ripple) can be stolen.

Hardware wallet
A hardware wallet is a physical device on which you can store your Ripple offline. It is one of the safest ways to store your Ripple, because the private keys are stored on a seperate, offline, device. Access to this device is often protected by a password. In that respect, a hardware wallet can be compared to a safe in which your Ripple are stored.

You can use a hosted wallet, as offered by Bitvavo, to easily store, send and receive Ripple. However, you are, just like at a bank, dependent on a third party (Bitvavo) for storing your Ripple.

One of the advantages of Ripple is that you can send, receive and store your own digital assets without the relying on third parties. You do this by sending your Ripple, from your Bitvavo wallet, to your own software or hardware wallet.
