XRP, the native cryptocurrency of the XRP Ledger (XRPL), has taken a significant leap towards wider global adoption through a new partnership with C14, a fiat-to-crypto on-ramp solution provider. This collaboration, announced on July 4, 2024, integrates C14 with the XRPL-based wallet Xaman (formerly Xumm), allowing users from over 50 countries to easily purchase XRP and XAH, the native token of the Xahau blockchain, directly within the Xaman wallet using various fiat currencies.

The integration marks a major step forward for XRP accessibility. Previously, users in many regions faced hurdles when attempting to acquire XRP. Now, thanks to Xaman’s partnership with C14, users can leverage alternative payment methods popular in emerging markets, including debit and credit card purchases. This opens the door for a wider audience to participate in the XRPL and Xahau ecosystems.

Simplified On-Ramp Process

The partnership streamlines the process of acquiring XRP and XAH. Users can seamlessly purchase these cryptocurrencies with fiat through the C14 xApp embedded within the Xaman wallet. This eliminates the need for intermediary steps, making the process faster and more convenient.

For desktop users, accessing the C14 xApp is straightforward. They can visit xumm.app/detect/app:xumm.buysellxrp or the dedicated Xaman on-ramp launchpad at buy-sell-xrp.xumm.app. Mobile app users simply need to locate the C14 xApp, specify the desired XRP or XAH amount, select a preferred payment method, and verify their phone number to finalize the purchase.

Security and Shared Vision

C14 prioritizes robust security protocols to ensure user asset protection and facilitate secure transactions. This focus on security aligns with the core values of both Xaman and the XRPL ecosystem.

Wietse Wind, founder of Xaman, hailed the integration as a pivotal moment in their mission to enhance accessibility and user experience within the Xahau network and the broader XRPL ecosystem. Erich Grant, founder of C14, echoed this sentiment, expressing his enthusiasm for supporting the growth and expansion of both XRPL and Xahau.

Looking Ahead

This partnership between Xaman and C14 holds significant promise for the future of XRP and Xahau. By simplifying the on-ramp process and expanding accessibility across over 50 countries, the collaboration paves the way for increased adoption and global reach for both cryptocurrencies. As the partnership unfolds, it will be interesting to see how it impacts the user base and overall growth of the XRPL and Xahau ecosystems.
