XRP Ledger to Handle
Bitstamp has announced on its blog that all IOU transfers will incur no fees. This would be between January 26 and March 27, 2023. The XRP Ledger employs a distributed consensus ledger that is validated by a network of validating servers. Although it has its own token, the XRP Ledger also supports the inclusion of other tokens backed by assets, called IOUs.
Bitstamp produces three asset-backed IOUs that may be used as entry and exit points on the XRP Ledger. These are bitcoin (BTC), US dollars (USD), and Euros (EUR). An IOU is a token on the XRP Ledger that represents ownership of an underlying asset, such as US dollars, Euros, gold, or oil.
Because the XRP Ledger operates as a distributed network, transactions often go swiftly over the network without the need for numerous block confirmations.
Bitstamp claims that the IOUs it issues are backed by the same rigorous system of internal controls and frequent external audits that protect the legitimacy of its operations and its cryptocurrency offering.
