What is Ripple chain system, how it is different from Bitcoin Network?

Ripple chain system : Ripple is a system built to process a significant number of money transfers and currency exchanges. Similar to the Bitcoin network, the RIpple protocol or RTXP is based on a distributed ledger which allows payments to be made in multiple real-world assets like gold or air miles.

Ripple was first implemented in 2004 by Ryan Fugger and later fully launched as a decentralized protocol in 2012, with the main goal of ensuring “secure, instant and almost free global money operations of any size without any chargebacks”.

Ripple is highly scalable and accessible – to the point where it is currently being tested by global banks as a means for exchange in the digital space. The XRP Ledger can handle 1,500 transactions per second, compared tof Ethereum’s 15 per second and Bitcoin’s 7 per second and is a much more secure and efficient way of managing global transactions.

XRP, or the Ripple native currency, is used to operate RTXP. It is currently divisible to 6 decimal places, with the smallest unit called 1 drop. 1 million drops = 1 XRP.
