The stablecoin which goes by the sticker USDS, supports XRPL’s mission to provide a sustainable and scalable platform for individuals and organizations.
XRP Gets Its First Stablecoin
In accordance with a press release issued today, Stably USD is the first stablecoin backed by the US dollar to be introduced on XRP Ledger. The action is a result of Stably and Ripple’s partnership.

Mint XRP-Based USDS
Users are able to mint and redeem USDS through Stably’s official web portal or use the Stably Ramp applications which are integrated into the Xumm wallet, the largest non-custodial wallet application on XRPL.
Additionally, institutional customers can open a Stably Prime account and mint/redeem USDS based on XRPL.
USDS Banks High On Transparency
In collaboration with an SEC-qualified custodian, Stably developed the stablecoin in an effort to increase public confidence. With the custodian’s management of its USD bank deposits, USDS is fully 1:1 collateralized.
Stably added that it collaborated with a leading American stablecoin auditor entrusted with delivering monthly certification for the fiat reserves supporting USDS. However, Stably withheld the identities of the stablecoin auditor and custodian.
Leveraging XRP’s Cutting Edge Tech
According to Kory Hoang, CEO and Co-Founder of Stably, the company decided to launch USDS on XRP Ledger because of the blockchain’s state-of-the-art technology, and he continued:
“Their strong institutional relationships and low transaction fees suit Stably’s stablecoin and fiat gateway infrastructure perfectly, enabling a wide range of use cases such as simplified payments and remittances. And this is only the start, as we expect stablecoin demand to continue growing immensely.”
It needs to be seen how well XRP’s newly launched stablecoin is able to match up and compete with industry giants like USDT, BUSD and USDC, which currently have the lion’s share in the market.
