- RippleX announces the launch of a browser-based wallet designed for the XRP Ledger.
- Crossmark introduces a new approach tailored for the XRP Ledger.
In a recent Twitter post RippleXthe development division of a prominent cryptocurrency payment company, used the platform to inform the public about the imminent launch of a highly anticipated browser-based wallet designed for the XRP called Ledger sign of the cross. The unveiling of Crossmark, a web wallet created in partnership with Ripple, brings forth a set of features similar to Ethereum’s famous MetaMask wallet.
Crossmark is a browser-first digital wallet that sits on top of the #XRPL and it provides an easy way to sign transactions and switch between networks.

In addition, by introducing Crossmark, the developers aim to transform the way users interact with the XRP Ledger, enabling improved accessibility and streamlined transactions within the decentralized ecosystem.
Unlike XRP Labs’ XUMM Wallet, which prioritized mobile functionality and did not pursue a browser-based solution, Crossmark differentiates itself by striving to become the pioneer browser extension dedicated to bridging the gap between decentralized applications (dapps) and the XUMM mobile environment.
Bridging the gap between dApps and the XRP ecosystem
By including features reminiscent of MetaMask, Crossmark introduces a new approach tailored for the XRP Ledger. In addition, Crossmark XRP holders a smooth and intuitive experience using web browser extensions, allowing effortless management of their XRP transactions and seamless interaction with decentralized applications (dApps).
According to Crossmark, there is a growing desire among new projects developed on the XRP Ledger for a wallet that prioritizes browser compatibility. The developers anticipate an escalation of this demand as more developers and users leave the Ethereum ecosystem. Crossmark presents a comprehensive solution that includes transaction signing and seamless network switching within the XRP Ledger. The browser-first design enables convenient network navigation and allows users to access various features and services.
Like Metamask has significantly impacted the Ethereum ecosystem, Crossmark seeks to bridge the gap between decentralized applications (dApps) and users within the XRP ecosystem. This integration aims to equip developers with a robust tool that enables the seamless integration of XRP Ledger features into web applications, fostering a more diverse and inclusive developer solution ecosystem.
Crossmark also puts a strong emphasis on user security through the implementation of an encrypted keychain mechanism. This feature ensures that sensitive keys are securely stored on the user’s computer, enhancing the safety of funds and personal information.
Beta testing in progress: Collaborating with XRPL developers to refine Crossmark
Inspired by Ethereum’s MetaMask wallet, the developers have recognized the importance of a browser extension solution that simplifies interaction with decentralized web applications. MetaMask has established itself as a foundational tool within the Ethereum community, allowing users to effortlessly engage with smart contracts and decentralized finance protocols (DeFi).
With the introduction of Crossmark, the goal is to replicate this success within the XRP Ledger and create a similar gateway for XRP holders to delve into the growing realm of dApps and financial tools. However, the specific launch date for Crossmark is currently unknown. From mid-April, beta testing started with a limited group of XRPL developers.
