Mintable’s partnership with Ripple is a step forward in the multi-chain future of the NFT ecosystem, bringing one of the most trusted and sustainable blockchains to the wider NFT community
Mintable, a top NFT marketplace and minting platform, has launched support for Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) on the XRP Ledger (XRPL), the fast and energy-efficient blockchain for the tokenization of assets. Users will now be able to buy, sell, and mint NFTs on the XRPL securely with ease and cost efficiency. Mintable will partner with Ripple, the leader in enterprise blockchain and crypto solutions, to bring creators and developers together to enable the creation of high-quality NFT projects and provide a no-code solution for independent creators on the XRPL.
While there are currently many blockchain alternatives to Ethereum within the ecosystem, creators and developers can benefit from the XRPL’s long-standing reliability to enable settlement and liquidity of tokenized assets at scale. The XRPL is led by a global developer community that provides a solid and flexible open-source foundation for various use cases. With over a decade of uptime, the XRPL has been a reliable backbone for a variety of applications including payments, tokenization and now, NFTs.
“The XRPL is a valuable addition to the NFT ecosystem. It is a battle-tested and highly secure blockchain that will help overcome NFT adoption barriers related to security and environmental concerns,” said Patrick Chin, CMO of Mintable. “Ripple works with some of the biggest companies in the world, and will be bringing a suite of valuable partnerships to the NFT ecosystem. We are excited to join their ranks as Ripple’s NFT partner, to help with their NFT initiative and to introduce one of the most secure, sustainable and efficient blockchains to the NFT ecosystem.”
“For over 10 years, the XRP Ledger has been a trusted blockchain of choice for developers due to its security, speed and scalability of tokenizing assets,” said Emi Yoshikawa, VP of Strategy and Operations at Ripple. “We are excited to partner with Mintable to help bring in new creators and projects building innovative Web3 projects with real utility to the XRP Ledger.”
As part of their partnership with Ripple, Mintable will also be supporting recipients from Ripple’s Creator Fund to help bring their NFTs to market on the XRP Ledger.
