The XRP Ledger (XRPL) has recently experienced substantial growth, with more than 2,000 tokens integrated into the network within the past year. This noteworthy uptick in adoption has persisted despite the ongoing legal dispute between Ripple and the U.S. SEC.

According to the prominent XRP influencer Eri (@sentosumosaba), a significant driver behind this exponential growth has been implementing the new token standard, which introduced the concept of NFTs to XRPL.


According to Eri, the disclosure came from Boris Alergant, Head of DeFi Markets at Ripple Labs. Recent data from XRPL.to shows that the 2,000 token additions in the past year have resulted in a surge to 8,356 tokens currently on XRPL. Eri touted this as a growth that rivals other notable blockchains such as Solana.

Two of the most prominent additions in the past year are the Coreum (CORE) and the Sologenic (SOLO) tokens which secure the top two positions of the biggest tokens by 24-hour trade volume. These tokens also have some of the largest market caps on XRPL, with CORE having a valuation of $329M and SOLO $64M.

The XRP Ledger has also seen a surge of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) since native NFT functionality went live on the network last October. Chief among these NFTs are the XPUNKS, xSPECTAR, and OXP tokens which have enjoyed massive adoption rates in the past few months. As of press time, the global token market cap on XRPL is currently $530.4B.

$20B Marketcap

Moreover, XRP, the network’s native token, continues fighting against the bears despite its unique situation. XRP’s market capitalization recently soared over the $20B mark as the asset seeks to establish a position above the $0.40 price point. XRP is trading for $0.4003, up 2.29% in the past 24 hours.
