It states that Q1, 2022, was a record quarter for On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) as volumes rose with nearly 8x YoY growth. Overall, RippleNet saw a $15 billion annualized payment volume run rate marking unrivaled growth as ODL use cases continued to expand.

Other areas it touched upon are:

XRPL’s progress in the NFT Space

Ripple says it has received over 4,000 applications for NFT projects on the XRP Ledger since the launch of the creator fund. In April, VSA Partners, a creative agency partner to Ripple’s Creator Fund announced its partnership with Rare Air Media to develop and market a range of NFTs on XRPL, including a unique NFT collection covering legendary basketball players Michael Jordan’s career.

XLS-20 update

Ripley’s primary contributions, notably XLS-20, were included in rippled 1.9.0, which was released on devnet in Q1, 2022. The XRPL community’s top priorities, however, remain stability and scalability rather than adding more NFT functionality. As a result, the Ripple-managed validators on the XRPL voted against introducing XLS-20 to the XRPL mainnet for now, citing increased traffic load as justification. Additional performance testing may be required to better understand the influence of NFTs on the XRP Ledger on a broad scale, according to the report.

XRPL interoperability

The XRP Ledger announced important cross-bridge interfaces with Multichain and Allbridge in Q1, 2022, allowing XRP holders to migrate their XRP to 12 alternative blockchains, including Avalanche, Fantom, and Solana, as well as the top coins from these chains onto the XRPL. In addition to this, WXRP, which was released by HexTrust in partnership with, has witnessed an increase in circulation, with around 16 million XRP floating around in the Ethereum ecosystem.

Recent updates in the Ripple-SEC lawsuit

In a recent interview, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse said, taking the “optimistic view,” that the case might resolve this year. He said, “It’s not impossible.”
