Ripple has released two research papers that should delight investors who want to see signs of the startup being gung-ho on doing whatever reasonably possible to further improve its core infrastructure.

At the end of 2017, Ripple’s XRP token was up a mind-boggling 20,000%, making it the top performing asset of the year.

Now the startup is in the midst of making several changes that could lead to it having another banner year.

It announced Wednesday the release of two white papers that better define its consensus algorithm. That announcement came on the heels of it releasing information about how it is strengthening its emerging markets access into India, Brazil, and China.

Here, we’ll go over these latest developments.

Ripple Consensus
On Wednesday, Ripple announced that members of its R&D team had released two new academic research papers about its XRP Ledger Consensus Protocol.

Plans call these papers to be submitted for peer review, which the company’s CTO Stefan Thomas said was a first for Ripple. The hope that this effort will lead to more research being done.

Thomas tweeted:
In a blog post, the company states:
Maintaining our momentum towards further decentralization is critical for XRP Ledger to reach its full potential. We’re proud of how far we’ve come, being the only public Blockchain that has experienced no reversed transactions, no censorship, and no major operational issues for over five years. We look for that track record to continue as the XRP community takes on more and more responsibilities.

Welcome to the family
Ripple also announced the addition of new financial institutions to its RippleNet. These new additions include two banks and three payment providers.

They are Itaú Unibanco, Brazil’s largest private sector bank and Latin America’s biggest bank by market capitalization; IndusInd, a leading private sector bank in India; and Instagram, a major remittance provider based in Singapore, which will use Ripple’s current to provide faster, more transparent cross-border payments to other financial institutions around the world.

Here’s a tweet from Ripple about these developments:
