How the CBDC Platform works

Step 1

Onboard

Standard APIs enable integration of the CBDC Platform into existing systems.

Step 2

Mint

Banks can use the CBDC Platform's cryptographic multi-sign controls to mint CBDCs or stablecoins.

Step 3

Distribute

Issuers can directly send CBDCs or stablecoins to authorized accounts, ensuring only valid participants can receive and hold the CBDC or stablecoins.

Step 4

Transact

Transactions settle in 2-3 seconds across many use cases. Interoperability enables cross-asset and cross-border transactions when connected to another CBDC or stablecoin.

Step 5

Redeem

Participants can return funds on the Ripple CBDC Platform to the issuer in exchange for fiat.

Step 6

Destroy

The CBDC Platform supports the secure destruction of currency, giving the bank full control over supply.

With Ripple’s groundbreaking technology, we can experiment with CBDCs within our existing payments infrastructure while ensuring efficient and cost-effective cross-border transfers.
