An independent, decentralized digital asset, XRP settles payments in 3-4 seconds and can scale to handle 50,000 transactions per second, which makes it the best digital asset for cross border payments.

Cardano is a decentralised public blockchain and cryptocurrency project and is fully open source.

The development team consists of a large global collective of expert engineers and researchers.
Lumens are the native token of Stellar, an open network that allows any currency or asset to be digitally issued, transferred, and exchanged over the internet. The Stellar public ledger has a built-in order book, pathfinding algorithm, and network token that together allow assets to move seamlessly between participants. With investment from payment company Stripe and a partnership with IBM, Stellar is an open-source, decentralized protocol for the transfer of value globally.
