XRPL Labs Aims to Bring XRP Payment Plugin to WooCommerce E-Commerce's 3 Million Online Stores

Ripple has been a major catalyst for fast cross-border payments with limited fees, which is part of the reason that the whole xRapid network works. With all of these products, Ripple has managed to bring an entirely new level to cryptocurrency. Now, a Ripple-backed startup is hoping to bring the token to mainstream by way of e-commerce, according to tweets by Wietse Wind.

XRPL Labs, led by Wietse Wind, has already been funded for the next two to three years by Ripple, and there is a new bounty available for developers. All they have to do is build up a plugin that will be able to connect WooCommerce and XRP. Anyone can contribute to the bounty, and it has already gained 3,000 XRP, which amounts to about $950.

WooCommerce is already used by about 3.3 million websites and has become one of the leading payment platforms on the web, and it even is programmed to work within WordPress. Based on data from W3Techs, WordPress powers 33% of all websites that are presently on the internet.

Right now, XRPL is working on multiple projects, including a decentralized exchange, a mobile wallet, and an operating system that supports cold crypto storage, among other items. The investment arm of Ripple, Xpring, contributed XRP to the bounty, though the amount was undisclosed. However, it was revealed that there was enough in their contribution to support Wind’s work, while adding two employees to the efforts.
