When it comes to adoption, Ripple has always been on the forefront. On top of integrating with leading e-commerce platforms that could allow buyers to pay with XRP, the company has been working to make it easy for its users to transact XRP. It is no surprise then that the company has in recent days been pushing to make it easier for its users to send and receive XRP. Now, the company might just have figured out one of the slickest ways to do so.
According to reports, it is now possible for users to send and receive XRP without necessarily having an XRP address. A new project has reportedly created a plug-in that will allow XRP payments to Microsoft Outlook accounts (essentially an email account). In this case scenario, the receiver will not need any knowledge over the working of XRP or indeed an XRP address.
It is also reported by Daily Hodl that a private developer going by the name SchlaubiD is working to add the now so-called ” XRPTipBot” into mainstream email apps. If added to mainstream email apps, the feature could then be used in a number of email hosts.
The new development is expected to push adoption a long way for XRP especially in its ambitions of becoming a real-time settlement asset. In recent weeks, XRP has come under scrutiny with many experts stating that the coin could be under threat in its dominance from JPM Coin and the rapidly growing, Stellar and its token XLM.
Despite the emergence and development of its competitors, the coin remains miles ahead when it comes to the user base, adoption, and market capitalization. With this latest development, the margin between XRP and its competitors is expected to increase further.
XRP Market Update
In the last 24 hours, XRP has seen an increase of less than 1%. The coin is expected to extend its gains in the coming hours with the market showing bullish signals. With the coin trading for a little under $0.32, the next key target for the coin is around $0.33.
For more than two months, the coin has failed to break this key resistance position with many experts being of the opinion that a break of this position in the short term could signal a more bullish sentiment for the long term.
