According to a recent announcement made by Wanchain CEO Jack Lu, decentralized cross-chain bridges for XRP, the fourth-largest cryptocurrency, are set to go live on the mainnet in the nearest future:
This means that XRP tokens can now be used for liquidity mining and yield farming.
The cross-chain integration will make it possible for XRP holders to engage with different applications on Wanchain and Ethereum.
They will also be able to interact with Bitcoin and EOS, two previously added chains.
