This application is an account manager, where you can send and receive Ripple transactions and check your balance.
The only way to open it is to connect your Nano S or Blue, make your PIN code and launch the Ripple app on your device. Without the device, the app won't launch.
For each sending transaction, your application will ask you to verify it on your device : your device will display the amount, recipient address and gas rate you will have to manually sign by confirming everything is alright on the device.
In XRP protocol, to create a new account you need to initialize it with a funding of at least 20 XRP. An account under 20 XRP is considered as not exiting. Thus, your balance must always be at minimum 20 XRP and you are not allowed to make transactions that would result in your balance going under this limit.
