  • Collaboration with Mastercard and integration with India’s Yes Bank UPI highlights the platform’s growing adoption.
  • The platform supports quick transactions and secure management of digital currencies, enhancing global financial transactions.

Ripple Labs has launched the Ripple CBDC Platform, aimed at enabling central banks, governments, and financial institutions. Built on the technology underlying the XRP Ledger, the platform was introduced to the public in May 2023 and is designed to facilitate the issuance and management of digital currencies.

The Ripple CBDC Platform operates through a sequence of operational steps. It begins with the integration into existing systems using standard APIs. Banks can then use the platform’s tools to create (mint) digital currencies or stablecoins. These currencies can be distributed directly to verified accounts, ensuring that only authorized holders can manage them.

Transactions on this platform are completed within 2-3 seconds, supporting various applications including cross-border and multi-asset transactions. The platform also allows for the redemption and secure destruction of digital currencies, thus giving central banks precise control over their currency supply.

In August 2023, Ripple announced a collaboration with Mastercard to further explore the potential of CBDCs. Additionally, Ripple’s partner in India, Yes Bank, integrated with the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) on the Reserve Bank of India’s Digital Rupee project, facilitating seamless transactions.
