The firm explained the appeal for single asset ETPs like XRP solves "security and custody issues, with a professional and well-structured package," having already launched bitcoin and ethereum ETPs.

As for choosing Ripple, they explained that they "do not make personal biases towards any crypto asset, so long as there is sufficient liquidity, good development records, and no nefarious activity." It added that it planned to have "6-8 additional launches this year", with demand for its index exchange-traded security surpassing expectations.
