The founders of XRP went on to create another project which became known as Ripple. Ripple holds 60 billion XRP, granted to it when XRP was founded.
Ripple, now called RippleNet, is a payment network created by the team from XRP. RippleNet is an international network designed for cross-border financial transfers between intermediaries. It is essentially a B2B payment system for real-time transfers built using the XRP ledger.
