Ripple is introducing the XRPL EVM Sidechain, enhancing XRP Ledger with Ethereum Virtual Machine compatibility. This sidechain, utilizing Axelar Bridge for eXRP transactions, facilitates interoperability and expands opportunities in decentralized finance and real-world asset tokenization. The focus is on ensuring the bridge's security and improving user experience. Axelar, with its robust validator network, simplifies cross-chain operations. Ripple and Peersyst are refining this integration to streamline token transfers. Meanwhile, Ripple's XLS-38 amendment for custom sidechain creation remains under review pending community validation and real-world applications, with updates expected over the next 12-15 months.
