- Developers have access to a testnet that allows them to explore transactions through managing account credentials and viewing balances.
- With the Software Development Kit, 100 lines of code can be condensed to 21 lines.
The Xpring developer platform used to be rather broad, but modifications to this platform were announced in October of this year. At the time, the company stated that two more months were needed before the features were properly built, making it possible to have an account with the platform. Now, with this developer platform, everything has been condensed into one site for all developers to add payments for mobile applications.
Xpring.io provides a wallet, new tools, customer service, and technical documentation to any crypto or non-crypto developer. Ethan Beard, the senior vice president of Xpring, stated,
“That will be the central hub for developers to manage everything they need when it comes to integrating payments into their apps.”
The Software Development Kit of the platform manages to create 21 lines of code from 100 lines, according to Xpring. This platform has been the investment arm for Ripple in excess of a year, aiming to create more use cases and a network of companies that are based on XRP. Still, this is a new vertical for the Xpring platform, as the initiative focuses on increasing the developer base of XRP.
Developers presently have access to the wallet via the XRP Testnet, allowing them to perform various functions, including the generation and management of account credentials, viewing balances, and more. Developers will likely see more functions launched on the Xpring platform’s wallet going forward as well, according to Beard.
Continuing, Beard said,
“Before it was quite complicated. It was done through command line or piecing together a variety of different tools. There’s a reason why people keep a lot of their cryptocurrency inside hosted wallets on exchange because all of that is obfuscated.”
Developers also have access to the XRP ledger stable version 1.4.0 with Xpring. This version allows users to recover a minor 15 XRP from deleted wallets, though the previous limitations stated that a minimum of 20 XRP was needed to hold on to the ledger.
