One of the main arguments against the XRP Ledger and the token is how they are centralized. But now this argument becomes irrelevant with increasing number of third-party validators in the Ripple network.

Validators determine whether the transaction requirements of the Protocol, thus determining their validity. They also agree on the ordering of the groups of transactions to avoid spending the token the second time.

In the Ledger there is also a unique list of nodes, which includes proven validators. Participants can choose the validator depending on their quality.

Historically, what Ripple Labs Inc uses validators to ensure the smooth functioning of the system. Recently this has changed.

Currently, according to the web site XRP Charts, 18 of the trusted validators, 4 of which are third party. This is a big step forward for the decentralization as a unique node list Ripple consists of only 77% own validators. This means that the Ripple company could not unilaterally amend the Ledger without the aid of third-party validators.

Third-party validators in question is Bahnhof AB, a Swedish Internet service provider, WorldLink US technology firm in Texas, Telindus Telecom firm in information and communication technologies of Luxembourg and Flagship Solutions Group, which provides IBM solutions , managed services and cloud solutions worldwide.

According to the company Ripple, Ledger requires that 16 third-party validators to match decentralization of tokens such as bitcoin and Ethereum, and 17 the validator is required to be even more decentralized than they are.

In one of the blog posts on the topic, team Ripple stated that the decentralization of the system will make the Ledger more sustainable, and subsequently overtake on generalizovannoe and other blackany.
