New Chrome Extension Makes XRP Payments Much Easier for Gmail Users

As many of our readers are probably well aware of, sometime back the folks over at Microsoft released a payment module that allowed users to facilitate XRP transfers using the company’s flagship email app ‘Outlook’. In the same vein, an independent XRP developer who goes by the name ‘SchlaubiD’ has just created an all new Chrome extension that will allow Gmail users to do the same.

More on the Matter

Through the use of the above stated Chrome extension, crypto enthusiasts will now have the ability to send XRP tokens to each other via Gmail.

From a technical perspective, we can see that the extension makes use of the famous ‘XRP Tip Bot API’ that has been designed to allow users to send up to 5 XRP to anyone they want via email.

However, what makes this entire deal quite unique is the fact that all of this can be done irrespective of whether or not the token recipient possesses an XRP wallet or not.

Final Take

In rounding off this Ripple piece, it should be made clear that as with any new platform — particularly ones that allow their customers to send/receive cryptocurrencies — users should do their fair share of due diligence so as to ensure that their alt-coin transactions are secure and not being tracked by some third-party miscreants.
