Ripple is a frictionless, transparent, currency and payment system to instantly transfer money anywhere in the world in any currency. It consists of a mathematically regulated currency unit, similar to Bitcoin, and a payment system, called 'wallets' – which users can pay into, in any currency, via an online exchange, backed by a bank. Once full, it can be transferred to any other Ripple user in any currency within seconds. (Bitcoin transactions take minutes.) Backers include Google Ventures.
