Cosmos announced its partnership with Ripple and Peersyst. Cosmos will provide its evmOS, which the two companies will use to build and develop the XRPL. The XRP Ledger (XRPL) EVM Sidechain is currently being developed in Devnet. 

The collaboration among these companies is poised to bring versatility to Ripple’s XRP Ledger by enhancing interoperability.

The evmOS provides an advanced technology stack that enables Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) compatibility and full customization on top of the Cosmos Standard Development Kit (SDK).

Ripple’s XRP Ledger, through this partnership will have access to over 60 Cosmos-based SDK chains, through the Inter-Blockchain Communication Protocol (IBC).

XRPL’s interoperability features is anticipated to be extremely impactful in the ecosystem, considering its veteran status in the industry. The interchain will benefit from the large number of users on the XRP network.
