The United States Government Accountability Office:
Other virtual currencies that have been created are not based on the bitcoin protocol.
One of the more prominent examples is XRP, which is used within a decentralized payment system called Ripple.
Ripple allows users to make peer-to-peer transfers in any currency.
A key function of XRP is to facilitate the conversion from one currency to another.
For example, if a direct conversion between Mexican pesos and Thai baht is not available, the pesos can be exchanged for XRP, and then the XRP for baht.

What Is Fiat Money?

Fiat money is a currency that is backed by nothing except the faith and credit of the government issuing it.

The U.S. dollar has been fiat since 1971.
Fiat money is a currency that is declared money by decree-not by the marketplace.
Though some fiat currencies were once backed by commodities, they are now only backed by the legislative power of the government issuing them.
