Wietse Wind Shares XRP Tipbot Specs During Recently Held AMA and Talks Ripple's Xpring System

The XRP Tipbot is described as a bot that allows Reddit, Twitter and Discord users to use the XRP token as a medium of exchange/ tip via comments and tweets.

According to the claims of AMB Crypto, Wietse Wind, the creator of the XRP Tipbot, recently held an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session on his creation (https://ambcrypto.com/xrp-tipbots-wietse-wind-hosts-ama-gives-about-xprings-cold-storage-os-and-future-of-tipbot/).

Some of the specs that Wind elaborated on include, but are not limited to its objective, user interface, cold storage and the potential it has to positively impact the community.

Attracting More Developers Is One Indicator of Success

In Wind’s viewpoint, XRP Tipbot’s success can be measured by assessing the number of developers existing within the XRP community. In addition to the contribution of developers, Wind noted that users’ expenditure of the token is also key. As per his words:

“[…] and more users actually spending the XRP because they don’t have to worry anymore about sharing your account secrets, because they use one of our products and other applications.”

Cold Storage System

Another area that he seems to have responded to is that of Cold storage system. He primarily focused on how to install it, while emphasizing the fact that any laptop would suffice as opposed to retorting the heavy and expensive machines.

He noted that once a laptop is used for the purpose of said storage system, it cannot be used for anything else. Interestingly, access also appears to be a bonus, considering that it supports the likes of Linux, Chrome OS or Windows.

Here’s an extract of what he discussed:

“The cold storage OS will be on there [laptop] and the cold storage OS will be XRP ledger, only, of course, you can use it to send a composed transaction for other currencies as long as they are [available?] to us on the ledger.”

Air Gapped OS

Amidst the questions that reached Wind, one that he took time to explain was that of the OS. More specifically, he noted that it will be air gapped, a security measure taken to ensure that a network is physically isolated from unsecure networks.

With respect to this context, it permits users to either import existing wallets or establish new ones. Most importantly, he supposes this as the ideal way to help users store large sums.

“It will generate a R code on screen […] And you can use our app or any other XRP wallet app […] to scan the QR code and submit airgap to XRP ledger, it’s quite interesting for people who want to keep probably large sums of XRP really safe.”

It seems like the XRP Tipbot isn’t the only project that Wind has focused on, as he spoke of his XRParrot as well. He also added that, moving forward, him along with Ali and Tristan will be focusing on applications that are fit for the XRP ledger. For those who are fans of the Tipbot, Wind hinted of a soon-approaching update.

Since XRP Tipbot was of interest during the hosted AMA, an interesting summary of what it is and tips on how to benefit from its uses has been posted on Twitter by XRP_Cro.

As seen above, it gives a summary of the Tipbot’s objective, what users should be watchful of and most, importantly, how to get started. For more information, check out: https://www.xrptipbot.com
