Ripple, a leading blockchain payment firm has extended its existing collaboration with Archax, a regulated digital asset exchange, broker, and custodian. The firm made the disclosure on Thursday via an official blog post

In the announcement, Ripple disclosed that its extended partnership with Archax will help bring “hundreds of millions of dollars of tokenized real-world assets (RWAs) onto the XRP Ledger (XRPL).” By that, the firm is confident that the XRPL will become one of the leading blockchains for RWA tokenization.

More so, Ripple described how Archax works with numerous prominent financial institutions to allow them to tokenize their financial RWAs. With the aid of the extended collaboration, financial institutions will be able to select the XRPL to tokenize their RWAs. Such development according to Ripple will help create opportunities for numerous downstream use cases for these assets.

Recall that the history of Ripple and Archax collaboration can be traced back to 2022 after the latter collaborated with Metaco to offer digital asset custody services to its clients. However, Ripple went on to acquire Metaco in mid-2023 resulting in a collaboration between the two.
