“The purpose of the company is the sale of digital assets XRP to institutional buyers.

XRP is currently the third largest cryptocurrency by market cap and is trading at $0.40 at press time.
Earlier this week, Ripple said that it is evaluating its approach to XRP volume reporting, adding that it will take “a more conservative approach to XRP sales this quarter.” The move comes amid growing concerns over exaggerated reported volume in digital asset markets.
Due to the undertaken measures, Ripple said that its sales of XRP in Q2 2019 will be “substantively lower (as a percentage of reported volume) than in the previous quarter—with our stated target of 20bps for programmatic sales of XRP volume, as reported by CoinMarketCap, likely dropping to less than 10bps.”
“Longer term, by being more demanding about our expected standards for market structure and reporting, we hope to begin raising the bar industry-wide,” it added.
