Ripple CTO David Schwartz provided clarification on XRP II after one of his followers found a reference to it in the crypto payment company’s official documents. Using Apple Pay and Apple as examples, Schwartz explained that XRP II is a separate legal entity controlled by Ripple Labs and needed to conduct separate, specific activities.
The developer further separately clarified that XRP II is not a cryptocurrency, and according to the document provided in response to Schwartz’s tweet, it appears that the LLC in question was previously named XRP Fund II.
No, it’s a legal entity, an LLC to be specific.

Apart from that fact itself, it is important to say that the token has held above an important support at $0.38 and above the 200-day moving average. If the positive momentum on XRP continues, we can expect the price to come in around $0.5.
