XRP Ledger is evolving into an NFT platform. Proponents have noted that the XRP Ledger has features that support NFT functionality. The platform was launched in 2012, and evolving to power NFTs is a key milestone.
The platform runs on XLS-20, a standard that will power seamless functionality for NFTs. The standard is yet to receive the community’s approval. Once approved, RippleX will support the development of NFTs on its network.

Ripple’s partnerships in Asia have boosted the utility of XRP, and the platform has grown 2400% over a year.
