XRP Crypto Investors Author a Message to Skype Requesting Ripple Micropayments Acceptance
Ripple Community Writes Open Letter to Skype For it to Accept Micropayments in XRP
The Ripple community is known for being very enthusiastic about the project and the digital asset XRP. In social media, Ripple enthusiasts tend to be everywhere commenting about the future of the space and how XRP is going to change the cross-border payment industry. This time, the community decided to post a recommendation to Skype for them to accept micropayments in virtual currencies and XRP.
Skype is one of the most popular services around the world that allows users to perform video and phone calls using an internet connection. It also allows individuals to send written messages as a normal chat.
Ripple is currently expanding all over the world offering services to companies that want to process cross-border payments and transactions. By using Ripple’s services firms are able to reduce their costs and transaction times, improving their efficiency.
On the official Skype forum, the XRP community wrote that the age of micropayments arrived and they need Skype’s support. They also suggest Skype to allow users to purchase SkypeCredits using XRPTipBot or send micropayments on Skype chat as well.
Skype answered the next day this request saying that cryptocurrency micropayments sound really good. They said that Microsoft is already using blockchain technology but they do not have information about the adoption of virtual currencies.
About it, they have commented:
“Like any other leading technology company, Microsoft is already testing blockchain. Although I don’t have any information about cryptocurrency adoption for Skype or any other MS product, please keep continue supporting this idea. I will share it with our teams.”
There are different initiatives related to Ripple and XRP around the world. The XRPTipBot allows users to send and receive micropayments in social media. There are other firms such as MoneyGram or Santander that are implementing Ripple’s solutions in order to make their services faster and more efficient. Ripple is currently working with more than 200 firms from all over the world.
