XRP Tip Bot Creator Starts Secure Messaging App On Ripple’s XRP Ledger

Ripple Tip Bot creator Launches Secure Messaging Application On XRP Ledger

XRP community developer Wietse Wind, known for his work on the XRP Tip Bot, has announced that he is working on an encrypted messaging service which functions on the XRP Ledger.

Wind’s service utilizes the Diffie-Hellman algorithm which is a method of securely exchanging cryptographic keysover a public channel and was one of the first public-key protocols as originally conceptualized by Ralph Merkle and named after Whitfield Diffie and Martin Hellman. It is one of the earliest practical examples of public key exchange implemented within the field of cryptography.

This service can send secure, encrypted messages between XRP accounts for a very low fee. The fee specified by him is “only a few drops”, where drops are the smallest unit of measurement of the XRP currency. 1 drop equates to 0.000001 XRP tokens, which makes the fee for the messages almost negligible.

The payment for one message is 1 drop, with 11 drops as fees. This turns out to 83,333 messages for one XRP token. Users can respond to messages or mail based on sorting, with payments prioritizing the urgency of replies. It also features the option to send extra XRP as payment along with the message. Wind also clarified that he is working on features such as a phonebook, or an “xrp book”, and adding support for emojis.
