Standard crypto-coins are a code-based resource created to be employed as an apparatus of exchange. New coins can be created through mining. Everyone may participate if they've access to a computer. Mining requires a great deal of time and electricity, though. A powerful machine is also vital, to mine profitably. Conversely, Ripple is a centralised asset, which can't be mined. A fixed number of units were created by the organisation and this limit will never be added to.
