Ripple’s CTO recently made a statement regarding XRP token’s capabilities and its significance in passive income generation. Based on the crypto community’s discussion, mainly on the XRP ledger’s automated market maker (AMM), Schwartz offered an opinion on the token and compared it with long-term Bitcoin (BTC) performance.

XRP is affected by volatility like most other cryptocurrencies and its trend has been similar to BTC’s past 12-year performance. The statement comes at a time when passive income generation through Decentralized Finance (DeFi) is the latest buzz. 

Products like AMM have been gaining popularity recently and were passed in February, offering XRP holders a chance to earn passive income by operating as liquidity providers. Nevertheless, operating as a liquidity provider inherits a few of the risks. 

As of January 2024, only 21 validators had voted in favor of AMM and finally got approval in February.  

Schwartz figured out the misconceptions surrounding DeFi products and the issues involved, highlighting the need for realistic expectations about returns. 

In the post, Schwartz also highlighted the capabilities of AMM in leveraging digital asset volatility to generate passive income along with mitigating the issues related to long-term price fluctuations. 

The concept simply offers a sustainable route for income generation and collecting significant returns from ventures.

Schwartz’s motive is to educate the community about digital asset’s potential and maintain a balance between passive income generation and risk management in the highly volatile crypto market.
