Normal crypto is a digital resource created to be used as an apparatus of exchange. New coins may be added via mining. Anyone can do this if they've access to a computer. Mining uses a great deal of hours and electrical energy, though. A fast machine is also vital, to do this successfully. On the other hand, Ripple is a centralised asset, which cannot be mined. A finite number of units were generated by the firm and this number will never be added to.
