Normal crypto is a code-based resource built to be employed as a medium of exchange. Additional coins can be found by mining. Anyone can do this if they've access to a device. Mining uses a great deal of time and electrical energy, though. A powerful machine is also needed, to mine successfully. On the other hand, XRP is a centralised resource, which cannot be mined. A limited number of coins were made by the company and this limit will never be exceeded.
