On a mission to transform global healthcare with blockchain innovation
In the ever-evolving landscape of healthcare, innovation is the lifeline that connects individuals to better, more accessible services. Enter XRP Healthcare (XRPH), a pioneering solutions company that has harnessed the power of Web3 technology to transform the way people around the world access and afford healthcare services. XRP Healthcare stands as the pioneer, the first pharma and healthcare platform built on the XRP Ledger, a blockchain known for its efficiency and security.
The company’s mission is clear: to improve the lives of individuals and families worldwide by providing a decentralized marketplace for pharmaceuticals as well as traditional and non-traditional healthcare services.
With its decentralized marketplace and lightning-fast payment transactions, XRPH is poised to change the game. Kain Roomes, the visionary founder, emphasizes, “We believe in harnessing the power of blockchain to create a healthcare ecosystem that transcends geographical boundaries. Our focus is on delivering faster payment transactions worldwide via our mobile app, bridging the gap in healthcare access – XRP Healthcare with the help and dedication of our amazing team is building the first pharma and healthcare platform on the XRP Ledger, our mission is clear: to make healthcare accessible to anyone with a smartphone.”
Despite being less than a year old, XRP Healthcare has made significant strides. Father, Business Development Officer and Co-founder Laban Roomes proudly recount their journey, stating, “Our company launched at the Sologenic meet-up event in London on November 9th, 2022, and in the months since we launched our biggest impact to date will be here in Africa, starting with Uganda where we have already identified several private healthcare facilities to acquire and upgrade once our due diligence is complete, with many more to follow – another milestone is the recent launch of our XRPH wallet and App, alongside the creation of our Decentralized marketplace.”
The XRP Healthcare journey
In the fast-paced world of cryptocurrency and innovation, there are stories that transcend the boundaries of possibility and define a new era of limitless opportunities. The journey of XRP Healthcare (XRPH) is one such story—a tale of vision, determination, and the audacity to create currency and change lives.
Co-founder Laban Roomes reflects on the journey that led to the birth of XRP Healthcare, saying, “It’s been about five years since we started this journey, albeit as investors, it was five years of invaluable experience that laid the foundation for XRP Healthcare – Those early years were characterized by relentless dedication, commitment and higher guidance operating in our lives to be at the place we are now, both myself and Kain being fortunate enough to have emerged at the other end of those years financially, mentally and spiritually intact”
One pivotal moment in XRP Healthcare’s journey was the creation of its own cryptocurrency token. Laban recalls how the individual responsible for creating the token eventually moved on to a different opportunity that paid cash instead of a promise of free tokens, which even as the creator of the token, he didn’t fully grasp the value of. In stark contrast, XRP Healthcare forged ahead, offering to pay its team members exclusively in tokens, without any traditional monetary compensation – some scoffed at the idea and left, while others had faith, stayed on, and were rewarded handsomely.
Kain and Laban reminisce about the pivotal choices made during those early days, stating, “Some accepted the tokens and became a part of this journey, while others declined.” It was a defining moment for the team, one that set the course for XRP Healthcare’s remarkable trajectory. As they ventured into cryptocurrency exchanges and pairing their token with USDT in the process, instantly giving the XRPH token value, those who had initially declined their offer sought to join the journey, but the train had already left the station.
The true marvel of XRP Healthcare’s journey lies in the fact that they created their own currency.
As Laban aptly puts it, “Essentially, we created our own global currency, and it’s something we still marvel at today.” In an era where opportunities are boundless, they seized the moment and carved out their unique path.
“What I want to emphasize is that we are living in times where whatever you have the intent and desire to do, there are the people and tools available that will facilitate the manifestation of your will ” Co-founder Laban passionately asserts. He underscores that it’s not about possessing special skills; it’s about embracing the incredible era we live in. The internet, technology, and the unwavering human spirit for progress have ushered in a new age of possibilities. With vision and determination, one can turn their dreams into reality, the only caveat to this is you must want it, just as one wants to breathe.
XRPH mobile wallet to revolutionize healthcare access
In the rapidly evolving world of healthcare, innovation is the key to overcoming challenges and delivering better services to people around the globe. XRP Healthcare (XRPH) understands this better than anyone else, and they’ve just made a significant leap forward. On September 14, 2023, the XRP Healthcare team unveiled the groundbreaking XRPH Mobile Decentralized Wallet, marking a new era of secure, anonymous, and convenient transactions in the healthcare sector.
Founder of XRP Healthcare, Kain Roomes, shared insights into their journey and the challenges they faced in integrating blockchain technology into healthcare. He stated, “The challenge, if any, has been the development of the XRPH token and wallet, which is both secure and enables fast transactions globally.” The XRP Healthcare team embarked on a mission to create a wallet that not only prioritized security but also offered a user-friendly design that stood out in the market.
Despite the hurdles, XRP Healthcare has emerged as a trailblazer. The XRPH Wallet is now available for download on both the App Store and Google Play. This wallet isn’t just a run-of-the-mill digital asset wallet; it’s a game-changer that empowers users with unprecedented control over their assets while maintaining top-tier security and complete anonymity.

XRP Healthcare’s commitment to decentralization goes beyond the wallet itself. They’ve taken a bold step by offering a license-free open-source code to the community, encouraging the development of decentralized wallets. This move fosters innovation and pushes the boundaries of what the blockchain ecosystem can achieve.
Founder Kain Roomes expressed his excitement about the XRPH Decentralized Wallet’s launch, highlighting its potential impact on the XRP Ledger community. He said, “The launch of the XRPH Mobile is the culmination of our incredible five-star team’s effort, they have enabled and will continue to help materialize our vision for better healthcare, faster and secure transactions on a global scale as Phase 1 of its initial creation, with updates including staking and tele-pharma as our acquisitions of private medical practices grow in Africa” This momentous occasion reflects the dedication and commitment of the XRP Healthcare team, whose mission is to transform healthcare with a focus on East Africa, initially.

Transforming healthcare in East Africa
As XRP Healthcare continues to make waves in the healthcare industry, questions naturally arise about the company’s plans for further advancement. Kain Roomes, the founder of XRP Healthcare, sheds light on their strategic outlook: “We have partnered with The Burnratty Investment Group, who are our partners for Mergers and Acquisitions of private healthcare centers, pharmacies, and hospitals here in Africa, with the intention of upgrading the facilities, medical services and equipment – allowing for medical services and treatments to be paid with by the XRPH utility token.”
This partnership is more than just a business deal; it’s a meeting of shared visions. Business Development Officer and Co-founder Laban Roomes highlights the alignment, saying, “When The Burnratty Investment Group came to our attention it was literally a no-brainer to partner with them, their vision fits completely with our own. Their shared vision combines making healthcare affordable for all while raising the standards of private healthcare facilities in Africa.” The linchpin of this partnership is XRP Healthcare’s decentralized mobile wallet, a game-changing tool, set to facilitate seamless, secure, and efficient payments within the healthcare ecosystem.
Laban goes on to underscore the immense significance of this alliance: “Our partnership with The Burnratty Investment Group is a testament to our commitment to expand healthcare access across Africa, improving the quality of care, especially for those communities in need.” He further highlights the pivotal role of the XRPH decentralized mobile wallet in this, saying, “The XRPH decentralized mobile wallet is a pivotal tool in this endeavor, and will facilitate seamless, secure, and efficient payments within our healthcare ecosystem, bridging the gap in financial transactions that often hinder healthcare accessibility.”
The XRPH wallet addresses a critical need in healthcare by streamlining payments. Patients can effortlessly make payments for medical services, ensuring that healthcare providers receive their dues promptly. This streamlined process not only enhances efficiency but also contributes to the development of a sustainable healthcare infrastructure across Africa.
The recent partnership between XRP Healthcare Africa and The Burnratty Investment Group aims to transform Africa’s healthcare landscape. Kain Roomes explains the strategic considerations behind this collaboration: “The benefits are consolidating and upgrading a highly fragmented industry for an exit of US$1 billion in 3 to 5 years. We intend to revolutionize the healthcare segment in Africa.”
One of the most significant developments in XRP Healthcare’s journey is its partnership with ScriptCo, the first and only pharmacy in America selling medications at cost price. This partnership integrates ScriptCo’s Pharmaceutical store into the XRPH Web3 decentralized marketplace, saving customers thousands of dollars annually.
Kain Roomes emphasizes, “Our commitment to collaboration doesn’t stop here. We will continue to partner with health-focused organizations and pharmaceutical companies, enabling them to benefit from our platform’s unique features and functionality.”
In a world where healthcare access and affordability remain pressing concerns, XRP Healthcare is stepping up as a beacon of hope. With its Web3 technology-driven solutions, decentralized marketplace, and strategic partnerships, XRP Healthcare is poised to transform the global healthcare landscape, ensuring that quality healthcare is within reach for all. As Kain Roomes aptly puts it, “The future of healthcare is decentralized, and XRP Healthcare is leading the way.”

Openness to strategic collaborations
In the fast-evolving landscape of healthcare innovation, XRP Healthcare (XRPH) stands out not only for its vision but also for its meticulous approach to growth. Founder Kain Roomes provides insights into the company’s strategy, emphasizing the importance of rigorous evaluation, continuity, and a commitment to seamless customer experiences.
XRP Healthcare’s openness to strategic collaborations is a key driver of their success. Kain Roomes emphasizes this philosophy stating, “We are always looking for or being approached to form strategic partnerships, of which there will be several being announced over the course of this year. There is no need to reinvent the wheel; there are plenty of companies out there already doing some really amazing things. Our philosophy is simple: ‘Together we are stronger.'”
When it comes to potential mergers and acquisitions, XRP Healthcare doesn’t leave anything to chance. Kain Roomes outlines the stringent criteria their Tier one lawyers Shonubi, Musoke, and Co. Advocates do to assess opportunities: “Is the company already profitable? 3 years of audited accounts, does it fit with our vision, is there room to upgrade and make the establishment better, and more profitable? Will this acquisition add value to the whole?” This methodical approach ensures that each partnership aligns with XRP Healthcare’s overarching mission of revolutionizing healthcare access and quality. It’s about more than just financial gain; it’s about creating a sustainable impact.
While XRP Healthcare explores growth opportunities, it remains committed to preserving the integrity and expertise of acquired entities. In each case, the plan is to retain the existing owner and team for a minimum of 3 years. This continuity not only ensures a smooth transition but also leverages the valuable knowledge and experience of those already entrenched in the healthcare landscape.
Bridging healthcare gaps with NASA-co-developed technology
One of the most intriguing collaborations in the healthcare sphere is the partnership between XRP Healthcare and NASA-designed ventilator manufacturers Spiritus Medical, a U.S.-based medical technology company. Together, they are introducing cutting-edge medical devices, including the SPIRITUS VITALITY Ventilator, to XRP Healthcare facilities when acquired in Uganda.
Laban Roomes, Business Development of XRP Healthcare, sheds light on the genesis of this partnership: “We wanted to make a real tangible difference in the healthcare space, so we reached out to Spiritus Medical, who we knew had a license from NASA granting them the rights to manufacture and distribute the NASA-designed ventilator.” The critical shortage of ventilators in countries like Uganda necessitated the introduction of this life-saving technology.
The SPIRITUS VITALITY Ventilator, co-developed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory during the COVID-19 pandemic, offers a revolutionary approach to ventilatory support. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization, this device is designed to address the dire shortage of conventional ventilators in Africa.
What sets the SPIRITUS VITALITY Ventilator apart is its simplicity, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. With minimal parts and effortless assembly, it ensures easy maintenance. Moreover, streamlined manufacturing processes enable rapid scaling of production to meet global demand, making it an affordable and widely accessible solution.
This innovative ventilator allows more expensive full-featured ventilators to be reserved for severe cases, effectively addressing equipment shortages. Its versatility ensures seamless integration into various healthcare environments, from field hospitals to high-capacity facilities.
XRP Healthcare’s commitment to accessibility is evident as they plan to make the SPIRITUS VITALITY Ventilator available for purchase on their decentralized marketplace, using their native utility token, XRPH. This approach democratizes advanced healthcare solutions, making them accessible to a broader population.
Founder Kain Roomes emphasizes the far-reaching impact of this partnership: “Our collaboration will help combat severe respiratory diseases, saving lives in Africa and beyond.” This momentous partnership not only underscores XRPH’s dedication to providing healthcare for all but also demonstrates the remarkable results that can be achieved through innovative collaborations in the healthcare sector.
Empowering healthcare through Blockchain revolution
In a world where innovation is the lifeblood of progress, XRP Healthcare (XRPH) stands as a beacon of transformation, revolutionizing healthcare with blockchain technology. Founder Kain Roomes shares an extraordinary vision, where the power of blockchain empowers individuals to reshape the world, and there’s no sector more deserving of a revolution than healthcare. Kain Roomes posits a powerful message: “These platforms are designed to empower individuals to revolutionize the world, and what better sector for a revolution than healthcare?” Indeed, healthcare remains an arena where millions still lack access to basic services. The remedy? Taking healthcare to the blockchain and integrating technology into its very core.
Blockchain isn’t just a buzzword for XRP Healthcare; it’s a catalyst for groundbreaking transformation. Laban Roomes elucidates, “You can upload medical records onto the blockchain, enabling tele-pharmacy and telemedicine, secure data storage, and even medication delivery using drones.” This vision isn’t confined to futuristic dreams; it’s a tangible reality XRP Healthcare is actively shaping.
Decentralized transactions are the game-changers XRP Healthcare champions. By allowing transactions to bypass traditional banking systems, they’re creating a healthcare ecosystem that thrives on innovation and efficiency. As Kain Roomes explains, “In our ecosystem, people will transact using the XRPH token. We’re not just a digital entity; we’re acquiring physical pharmacies, medical centers, and hospitals”.
The launch of XRP Healthcare’s wallet is set to redefine healthcare transactions. “Our wallet, which has been launched will facilitate telepharmacy and telemedicine in later updates but for now it will be used for global payments helping to facilitate healthcare using our XRPH token, allowing the sender to send substantial sums in seconds,” Laban Roomes reveals. This innovation isn’t just about payments; it’s about creating a healthcare ecosystem that seamlessly integrates with technology.
Variety is the spice of life, and XRP Healthcare understands this well. Kain Roomes emphasizes, “As our wallet develops, we intend to provide a variety of token options for payments.” In their world, choice is paramount, allowing individuals to transact with ease using tokens like Bitcoin and USDT.
XRP Healthcare Africa, the branch responsible for acquisitions and mergers, will pivot around the token. “At the core of it all, XRP Healthcare Africa will revolve around our token. And yes, we’ll accept payments in XRP and other tokens as we move forward,” Kain Roomes assures. It’s not just a digital transformation; it’s a revolution fueled by the limitless possibilities of blockchain technology.
XRP Healthcare’s ambitious expansion plans and smooth transition to Uganda
XRP Healthcare is on the cusp of expanding its innovative healthcare solutions beyond Uganda. Founder Kain Roomes shares their vision, stating, “We plan to expand to Kenya and Rwanda after Uganda, then continue with our global marketing campaign to attract new users of our token, app, and decentralized marketplace.”
Remarkably, this expansion has been met with little to no significant challenges. Laban Roomes, co-founder of XRP Healthcare, paints a picture of their smooth transition, saying, “We haven’t faced any significant challenges in this venture. None, absolutely zero. If I were to mention something, and it’s not even a real challenge, it would be the process of relocating from London to Uganda, making sure first-hand we are on top of all the incredible developments taking place in this nature-rich and resourceful country”.
Kain Roomes echoes this sentiment, emphasizing how their new life in Uganda has been seamless. He states, “I’m genuinely on a quest to discover if there have been any challenges, especially in the context of XRP Healthcare’s journey. Sure, there have been challenges in the startup phase of XRP Healthcare, i.e. trolls doubting our legitimacy to run such a project and racist abuse, but when it comes to our adventure here in Uganda, it’s been smooth sailing. No, there really haven’t been any significant challenges to speak of.”
XRP Healthcare’s expansion into pharmerging countries is driven by its mission to make healthcare accessible to all. These nations, including China, India, Brazil, and others, face unique healthcare challenges that XRPH Healthcare aims to address through faster and more secure payments.
Laban Roomes elaborates, “With the combination of rising populations and GDP in these countries, we see a tremendous opportunity to make a difference. XRPH technology is designed to be accessible to anyone with a smartphone, ensuring that healthcare is not a luxury but should be standard for all.
XRP Healthcare’s future roadmap
In the realm of healthcare innovation, XRP Healthcare (XRPH) stands as a relentless force, reshaping the future of healthcare with a clear vision and unshakable determination. With a roadmap that shines like a beacon, XRP Healthcare is set to achieve remarkable milestones in the next 1-3 years, leaving an indelible mark on the industry.
Founder Kain Roomes paints a compelling picture of the immediate future, boldly declaring, “We intend to grow XRP Healthcare into a multi-billion-dollar company – period. In between this, we anticipate engaging in mergers and acquisitions involving 150 to 200 private healthcare medical centers, hospitals, and pharmacies”. This projection isn’t just ambitious; it’s a testament to XRP Healthcare’s unwavering commitment to catalyzing change. They aren’t merely envisioning the future; they are actively creating it.
In a world where healthcare trends, technological advancements, and regulatory landscapes are in a constant state of flux, XRP Healthcare stands prepared to adapt and lead. Founder Kain Roomes succinctly captures their approach, noting, “We acknowledge the growing disillusionment with the current healthcare system – people demand privacy and trust, and these can only be truly attained within a decentralized system.” This adaptability forms the bedrock of XRP Healthcare’s resilience. They are not passive followers of trends; they are visionary architects of a new era in healthcare.
But this is not just a story about a revolutionary healthcare company; it’s a tale of how the ripple effect of cryptocurrency innovation is reshaping the landscape of not just one region, but two – the Middle East and Africa.
In a move that has sent shockwaves through the cryptocurrency industry, Ripple Labs, a pioneer in blockchain technology, has declared its new home in the Middle East. This decision comes at a crucial juncture, as Africa grapples to catch up with the global cryptocurrency wave, with merely 10% of the continent embracing digital currencies.
Ripple Labs, renowned for its groundbreaking solutions in cross-border payments and digital asset management, has been at the forefront of the cryptocurrency revolution. However, their choice to leave the bustling tech hub of Silicon Valley behind and establish roots in the Middle East is a clear indicator of the evolving dynamics in the crypto arena.
The Middle East has been increasingly positioning itself as a cryptocurrency and blockchain hub, with governments and businesses embracing the potential of this technology. Countries like the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia have been actively fostering crypto-friendly regulatory environments and encouraging blockchain innovation. Ripple Labs’ relocation to this region signifies its commitment to expanding its reach and influence in a region that is quickly becoming a global leader in the crypto space.
On the flip side, Africa, brimming with potential and a youthful population, has been cautious in embracing cryptocurrencies. Currently, only 10% of the continent’s population has engaged with digital currencies, mainly due to a variety of factors, including regulatory uncertainty, lack of infrastructure, and limited access to banking services in many parts of the continent. To address these challenges, efforts have been made to increase cryptocurrency awareness and adoption in Africa. Local startups and international organizations have been working to develop user-friendly solutions, and some African countries have started exploring regulatory frameworks to facilitate the growth of the crypto industry.
Ripple Labs’ decision to move its operations to the Middle East may serve as a wake-up call for African governments and businesses to accelerate their efforts in embracing and regulating cryptocurrencies.
The potential benefits of widespread crypto adoption in Africa are significant, including financial inclusion, reduced remittance costs, and increased access to global markets for local businesses. With the emergence of XRP Healthcare on the continent even though they have no relationship with Ripple Labs other than being built on the XRPL blockchain, heralds in an exciting epoch of potential crypto adoption with the launch of the XRPH Mobile App. XRP Healthcare Africa plans to dominate and consolidate the highly fragmented healthcare industry in East Africa, with XRPH being the utility token of its eco-system testament to XRP Healthcare’s forward-thinking approach. XRP Healthcare isn’t merely a healthcare company; it is a visionary force.
