As shared on the Twitter handle of the XRPL foundation, a nonprofit foundation that further the activity and development of the XRP Ledger ecosystem, XRPL’s Rippled has seen a new change.
The server software that powers the XRP Ledger is called Rippled and is available in this repository under the permissive ISC open-source license. Ripple and its engineers have been caretakers of and contributors to the C++ reference implementation of the XRPL protocol codebase for the past decade. But now, the authoritative repo for the code is under the XRP Ledger Foundation.
The @RippleXDev team and I have been caretakers of and contributors to the C++ reference implementation of the XRPL protocol codebase for a long, long time.

The XRPL employs a consensus protocol in contrast to other blockchains, whereby selected servers known as validators agree on the sequence and conclusion of XRP transactions every three to five seconds.
The wide range of validators for XRPL helps to guarantee its long-term health and consensus among various market participants to safeguard XRPL.
