A Ripple-backed startup has some really bold plans regarding the mainstream crypto adoption.
Wietse Wind is planning to bring Ripple’s digital asset XRP to the forefront of e-commerce.
The firm whose company XRPL Labs has received not too long ago tow-three years worth of funding from Ripple created a bounty that will be going to the developer who manages to build a plugin that integrates XRP with WooCommerce.
It’s important to note that XRP enthusiasts can contribute to the bounty as well in order to support this massive project even more. So far, the bounty has reached about 3,000 XRP worth about $950.
WooCommerce is used by 3.3 million websites
The great thing is that WooCommerce is used by about 3.3 million websites and it’s one of the most important payment platforms on the whole web.
It is designed to work on WordPress which powers “a staggering 33% of all sites on the internet, according to data from web technology survey firm W3Techs,” Daily Hodl reports.
XRPL Labs is currently working on developing a decentralized exchange, mobile wallet and cold crypto storage operating system, and other blockchain-based initiatives.
There’s been a server outage at Ripple, but XRP continued to transact.
This managed to trigger a whole controversial debate on Twitter.
Some users even said that Ripple was the one that orchestrated the whole thing just to prove that XRP is not centralized.
What happened was that even if Ripple’s servers were down, XRP continued to trade. This means, in the community’s opinion, that XRP is definitely decentralized. The debate was really intense on social media.
