Over the previous month, we’ve watched and listened as a grassroots motion to create an XRP image has taken form throughout the XRP neighborhood.
In tweets, boards and blogs, members underscored that Ripple is only one entity utilizing XRP to unravel actual enterprise issues around the globe, and on this manner, utilizing Ripple’s title or logomark to signify the total breadth and depth of the XRP ecosystem doesn’t make sense. The neighborhood additionally highlighted that this utilization is wrong, as each Ripple and its logomark solely signify our personal, for-profit firm and are protected components of our model. The neighborhood desires a logo freed from company emblems which may in the future be included within the Unicode Commonplace, like Bitcoin’s “₿”.
Not solely can we agree that the time has by no means been higher for XRP to get its personal visible id — one which captures the digital asset’s utility, pace and independence — however we additionally wish to present our assist by leveraging our design and authorized groups to suggest an possibility.
The brand new XRP image we’re proposing exemplifies the distinctive attributes that differentiate XRP from different digital belongings. Its “x” refers, partly, to XRP’s function in effectively shifting cash throughout borders. An “x” additionally mathematically suggests a multiplier impact — the place entities are constructing on each other to create one thing larger — the identical manner the neighborhood drives innovation with XRP and the XRP Ledger.
Up and down arrows signify sending and receiving — a price change, like the 2 sides of finishing a transaction, and the opportunity of elevated connectivity throughout completely different entities. The natural form of its curves is suggestive of the human type — a nod to the neighborhood that helps XRP and its ecosystem.
Most significantly, nobody entity or enterprise holds authorized rights to this new image, and it’s easy to attract, permitting for straightforward adoption by anybody.
As innovators construct on the XRP Ledger and develop new use instances for XRP, this XRP image is now obtainable on your use.
