Normal crypto-coins are a code-based asset created to be employed as an apparatus of exchange. New coins may be created through mining. Everyone can get involved if they've access to a device. Mining uses a great deal of hours and electrical power, however. A powerful computer is also needed, to mine effectively. On the other hand, XRP is a centralised resource, which can't be mined. A finite amount of units were created by the company and this limit will never be exceeded.
