Ripple, created by Ripple Labs, is a peer-to-peer open payment network, through which currencies can be transfer into any of others, including USD, EUR, CNY, JPY, or bitcoin, easily and rapidly. As a P2P network, anyone can create an account, and no individual, corporation, or government controls it. Currently LakeBTC customers can make USD deposits and withdrawals via Ripple network.
About Ripple Gateway
Ripple Gateways enable users to put money into and take money out of the Ripple network. They accept currency deposits from users and issue balances into Ripple’s distributed ledger. Furthermore, gateways redeem ledger balances against the deposits they hold when currency is withdrawn. In practice, gateways are similar to banks, yet they share one global ledger known as the Ripple network. The easiest way to get funds in and out of the Ripple network is through a Ripple Gateway service. Gateways issue IOUs backed by cash. You manage this account through the Gateway's website as you would any financial account.
The International Ripple Business Association (IRBA), a nonprofit organization, has as its mission:
to provide educational resources, set standards and best practices for the operation of various Ripple businesses, and organize the opinions of membership into actionable projects that serve to advance development of the Ripple protocol and its surrounding ecosystem.
IRBA provides unified procedures to establish trustworthy and secure services for Ripple customers. To become a member, a gateway needs to meet certain criteria and publish a number of documents about the business and top managers for review and scrutiny. Currently there are about a dozen IRBA Gateway members scattered around the globe providing secure and trustworthy services for all Ripple users. People may make deposits and withdrawals via a local gateway by cash, check, bank wire, online banking, and other local payment methods.
