XRP, an independent digital asset, native to the Ripple Consensus Ledger, has been gaining mass adoption and provifing competition for Ethereum, the second top cryptocurrency. The recents news from Cred, US based decentralized global lending network, will further enhance XRP growth and its adoption in the market. The leading provider of crypto-backed lending has announced that it provides USD loans, collateralized by XRP.

According to a press release by Cred, users now have the possibility to save their XRP without without the need to sell or incur tax consequences. Over $300 million has been secured by the company in total credit facilities available for lending.

Dan Schatt, Co-founder of Cred, said:

“We’re thrilled to offer XRP holders the same low rates and convenient liquidity services as ETH and BTC holders. We’re looking forward to continuing to support our many partners who are integrating the Cred platform for the benefit of their users.”

XRP hodlers can gain access to flexible and revolving Crypto Lines of Credit (C-LOC) through the Cred platform. By clicking on “Get Early Access” on the Cred’s official website, holders of XRP token from all corners of the world can now take loan as low as single-digit interest rates.

“As a Cred borrower, I appreciate how responsive Cred is to my needs. They continue to impress me with their ability to act as a trusted bridge between the traditional financial services ecosystem and the crypto community…their recognition of XRP as an asset class is important.”
