The launch of the NFT collection underscores the growing rate of NFTs being hosted on the XRP Ledger (XRPL).
The DS Private Collection was launched yesterday on the XRPL-domiciled NFT marketplace XRP Cafe. The collection, received well by the broader XRP community, contains 888 NFTs featuring DS in various uniquely styled suits, with a floor price of 88 XRP.

Additional benefits of owning any of the NFTs include exclusive access to the xSpectar Discord channel on the DS Private Collection, DS Private Collection events, and voting on charitable donations from profits made from the sale. The collection has seen mass patronage in a short period, indicating the growing attention it is attracting. In under 24 hours, the collection now has 102 holders, with total volume surging to 21.7K XRP at the reporting time.
Meanwhile, cryptocurrency content creator and notable influencer Ben “BitBoy” Armstrong recently delivered a lighthearted remark on the launch of the DS Private Collection, suggesting a growing interest. BitBoy’s remark comes barely 24 hours after the DS Private Collection launch.
“What kind of food do they serve at an XRP Cafe,” BitBoy asked in a tweet today, as he commented on an elaborate yet satirical presentation of the launch of the DS Private Collection by satirical crypto-presenting outlet XRP Productions. In response to BitBoy’s comment, the XRP Productions handle noted that while it cannot state a particular dish, orders are delivered within 3 to 5 seconds, referencing the attractive speed XRPL promises.

Furthermore, an XRP proponent seized the opportunity to introduce the content creator to several NFT collections on the XRP Ledger, including but not limited to xShrooms, xToadz, Bored Apes XRP, Ape Rowboat, and Club XRPL. These are some of the first collections minted on XRPL since the network introduced NFT support.
Being one of the most influential figures within the crypto space with a massive Twitter following of over 1 million individuals, BitBoy’s remark on XRP Cafe and the DS Private Collection launch is likely to attract more attention. XRP proponents have leveraged the opportunity to discuss their favorite collections, including the DS Private Collection.
NFTs on XRPL Drastically Increasing
Meanwhile, the DS Private Collection is one of multiple NFT collections hosted on several marketplaces within the XRP ecosystem. The number of NFTs on XRPL has surged drastically since the NFT functionality was introduced last month. On December 3, The Crypto Basic noted that over 460K NFTs had been minted on XRPL a month after NFT support went live.
Additionally, the leading NFT marketplace and minting platform Mintable formed a partnership with Ripple last month. The partnership will enable Mintable to support NFTs minted on XRPL and provide beneficiaries of Ripple’s Creator Fund support to bring their NFT projects to XRPL.
