Ripple is creating a new component designed to provide the ability to create asset-backed tokens on top of the XRP registry. That was told by the technical director of the company David Schwartz.
According to him, Ripple seeks to expand the capabilities of the network, including providing third parties with the chance to create their cryptos in the XRP ecosystem. David Schwartz didn't go deep into the description of all future opportunities, noting only such a function as the launch of tokens with a fixed value.
“Stablecoins are an apparent scenario, but they can be not only stablecoins, but also any other assets tied to comparative value,” he stated.
Different blockchains previously provided a similar opportunity, for example, Tether, which launched several stablecoins simultaneously on top of various networks. But, as David Schwartz says, thanks to the XRP mechanics, tokens created on its basis with asset tokens will have “guaranteed” liquidity.
