Ripple, the company behind xRapid, xCurrent and XRP solutions continues to invest heavily in developing its ecosystem. Its main objective has always been to increase the intrinsic value of its currency and trading technologies, as well as taking the adoption of cryptocurrencies to a new level. The company recently partnered with MoneyGram, an international money transfer service. The initial idea of the partnership was for MoneyGram to test xRapid and xCurrent as transaction tools. XRapid and xCurrent can be used to settle international transactions faster and much cheaper than using traditional methods
Fortunately the test seems to have been a success as MoneyGram has announced that it will adopt XRP and Ripple's solutions in full. According to ZyCrypto, xRapid was considered an efficient form of transaction, reducing the time and cost of transfer settlements. Interestingly, the recent partnership was born of a rivalry. Ripple, which is trying to bring a revolution for transfer solutions, had MoneyGram as its direct competitor, since both were in the same industry. Now, with the partnership, MoneyGram starts to use the speed offered by Ripple products and Ripple takes advantage of the adoption possibility by Money Gram users
This is where both sides win and the cryptocurrency ecosystem benefits. The news is excellent for the XRP, but there is no price movement yet. XRP remains the third largest in the industry at $ 0.316480 and up 1.5%, moving similarly to the rest of the cryptocurrency. It is possible that when the partnership gains strength, the currency will appreciate more, but this is far from certain. In addition, altcoins have been at a low point for a few weeks.
In this video I will cover the basics of Ripple for beginners. The Ripple ecosystem consists of two main technologies The first is the Ripple protocol which is an open source pro ...

While several consensus algorithms exist for the Byzantine Generals Problem, specifically as it pertains to distributed payment systems, many suffer from high latency induced by the requirement that all nodes within the network communicate synchronously. The result is a low-latency consensus algorithm which still maintains robustness in the face of Byzantine failures.

One of the biggest critiques of Ripple is that it’s not decentralized unlike other cryptocurrencies. Ripple holds more than 50% of the total supply and enough Ripple validators are be able to freeze accounts. 
In December 2018 the independent researcher, Geoff Goldberg, uncovered astroturfing attempts to shape the public opinion about Ripple with fake social media bots that try to make newcomers interested in Ripple’s cryptocurrency. 
The actor, Ashton Kutcher, announced a $4’000’000 donation at the Ellen Degeneres talk show. This donation is for the Degeneres Wildlife Fund. 
There’s not much information available about the current state. The GitHub profile of Ripple looks busy. 
Ripple has the three network products xCurrent, xRapid and xVia, of which xCurrent is the most focussed one. Its goal is to be used by institutions (e.g. Banks) that do cross-border payments, so that they can do much faster transactions for much less money. 
Main problems for cross-border payments are the long waiting times and the high costs. Ripple has a solution for this problem, but there’s a catch. Banks might be interested in the technology, but decline to use the cryptocurrency Ripple, as the token has a high fluctuation.
The Ripple co-founders are Chris Larsen and Jed McCaleb. McCaleb founded the filesharing program eDonkey2000 which was put down and the company had to pay 30 Million Dollars in compensation.  McCaleb seems to be a competent programmer and created the website MtGox which he later sold, while still holding shares of it. He cofounded Ripple in 2012/2013 and left the team in 2014 to create his own cryptocurrency Stellar Lumen off a Ripple fork.  Larsen is the current team leader at Ripple.

The success of Ripple’s cryptocurrency is heavily dependent on the financial institutions that might use Ripples coin XRP. A big obstacle to overcome is not only the high volatility of the coin's value but the trust that’s needed by banks. Foreign banks might not want to give Ripple full control of a highly important transaction.
Banks might possibly want to create their own system with partner banks and with a system that suits their purpose better.
There’re no currently known projects in the works, but there are a lot of marketing efforts to create partnerships and to make people invest in the Ripple coin XRP.
The potential is exceptionally huge. If Ripple’s coin XRP were used by major banks, it would skyrocket in price even if not all cross-border payments would be handled with XRP.
The biggest contender for the Ripple network is Stellar, which was founded by the Ripple cofounder McCaleb.
On February 3, 2018, Ripple partnered with the multinational Spanish bank Santander Group. Santander will use Ripples technology xCurrent, but they will not use the Ripple coin XRP. 
Another partnership is in the making with the Fleetcor Indusland Bank, but it’s uncertain if they want to use the Ripple coin XRP or just the Ripple technology. 
The Ripple community has risen as XRP entered the top 10 cryptocurrencies in market cap. The community is active in the forum in the means of sharing available information about the cryptocurrency XRP and new partnerships.
The Ripple foundation has an experienced team with knowledge in the financial services and programming technology. The CEO of Ripple is Brad Garlinghouse.
