Why This New Integration Is Important

Back in October 2021, Wrapped in collaboration with Hong Kong-based crypto custodian Hex Trust, announced that Wrapped XRP (wXRP), a digital asset backed 1:1 by XRP, will make the cross-chain jump into Ethereum-based decentralized finance (DeFi) starting in December 2021.

According to Mason Borda, CEO of Tokensoft, the driving force behind Wrapped, the new connectivity for XRP holders will allow access to various DeFi applications, such as lending and borrowing, among others.

In an interview, Mason Borda noted:

“We do a lot of these wrapped tokens, but we just think this wrapped XRP asset is going to be huge. It’s a top ten digital asset and has one of the biggest communities in crypto.”

What Is Wrapped XRP (wXRP) and It’s Important

Wrapped XRP is a token pegged to XRP that can be used on blockchains other than XRP Ledger. The wrapped asset is exchangeable 1:1 with XRP held in reserve by a custodian that facilitates wrapping XRP and unwrapping wrapped XRP.

The price of wrapped XRP is pegged to XRP due to arbitrage. When the price of wrapped XRP is higher, traders wrap the cheaper XRP and then sell wXRP, lowering its price. When the price of wrapped XRP is lower, traders buy and unwrap wXRP and sell XRP, increasing wXRP’s price. This creates a steady peg between the two tokens.

Wrapping XRP allows you to use the DApp ecosystem of a different blockchain and diversify your portfolio on that chain. If you want to get started, you can purchase’s ERC-20 Wrapped XRP (wXRP) via Binance.

The reserves of wXRP are managed by the licensed custodian Hex Trust, and you can begin wrapping wXRP by signing up for an account with Wrapped. You can use wXRP to stake in liquidity pools by providing it in a token pair on platforms including Uniswap and Sushiswap.
