About


XRPL Labs is the team behind XUMM, the #1 non custodial wallet for the XRP Ledger ecosystem. The XRPL Labs team spends day and night to grow the XRP Ledger ecosystem. The flagship product, XUMM, allows end users to interact seamlessly with the XRP Ledger. The platform behind XUMM allows developers to interact with end users.

XRPL Labs also contributes to the ecosystem by publishing many open source code libraries.

It has become increasingly evident that the XRP Ledger requires more high quality infrastructure. We, at XRPL Labs, have be really touched by the outpouring of support by community members from across the world, and a varying spectrum of interests. We also understand that it's not possible for many to either put in the funds for such high quality infrastructure, or maybe have the necessary technical ability to do it.

After a bit of brainstorming, we came up with a way to include all these wonderful people and give them a way to contribute. XRPL Labs would be honored to run community sponsored infrastructure in a robust and transparent manner. This infrastructure is over and above that provided by other operators including the XRPL Foundation.

Like with any effort like this, there are some rules to be laid out upfront:
  1. Through this platform we can only accept payments in USD and EUR, as hardware bills are in those. Speculative gains and losses by accepting XRP would make it impossible to budget for things accurately.
    However, if you want to donate XRP, you can: all XRP received on a specific XRPL account will be converted to EUR and added to this campaign, see: https://twitter.com/WietseWind/status/1466782895553527814
  2. Contributors will not get a "share" of the node they have contributed to, and trust XRPL Labs to deploy the node, maintain it and add it to the XRPLCluster.com pool.
  3. There is no premium access to be gained by contributing, just the great feeling of having done something tangible for the progress of the XRP Ledger
  4. These infrastructure nodes ARE NOT validators, so will not vote on network features. Only nodes for ledger querying will be operated through this initiative. These nodes have (unlike validators) no voting rights on the network. As no voting power is gained through this initiative, no voting power comes with your contribution
