Ripple CTO David Schwartz has discussed the potential for passive income with XRP in a recent exchange. He explained that the upcoming XRPL AMM feature will allow XRP holders to earn passive income by providing liquidity to the automated market maker. The AMM adjusts prices based on trading activity, ensuring a constant flow without manual intervention. Schwartz addressed concerns about the risk of losing XRP with the AMM, stating that as long as the system has no bugs, there would be no broken invariant and investment would be secure. He also detailed the method for measuring the value of liquidity tokens received when providing liquidity to the AMM. The goal of the AMM is to increase the value of these tokens over time, regardless of the prices of the underlying asset. However, Schwartz cautioned that while this minimizes losses in certain scenarios, it does not guarantee absolute immunity to value decreases. The article also discusses the potential advantages and challenges of the upcoming XRPL AMM feature, including the ability to convert volatility into yield and the exposure to at least two assets. Schwartz provided a hypothetical scenario to illustrate the potential gains from providing liquidity to the AMM during minimal volatility. He emphasized that these calculations assume perfect arbitrage without considering the impact of liquidity takers. The XRPL AMM feature is nearing implementation on the XRP Ledger, with consensus from validators at 62%.
