Weiste Wind is the developer behind XRP Tip Bot which was recently on limelight due to the accessibility of XRP as micro payments on Microsoft outlook. In addition, XRP community also seeks Skype to integrate XRP via XRP Tip Bot to enable crypto payment options for Skype credit and other paid options.
At the moment, the XRPayments app has received 4.6 ratings on Play Store. However, the App’s description on Google play reads that;
Accept payments in XRP directly on the ledger to your own account address, or XRPTipBot.com account. Type the amount to pay in any currency and the app will covert the amount to pay to XRP
Unlike other Apps that auto-fills the amount of crypto to send, Wind said that XRPayments will let the user fill the amount they intend to use or tip the service. As a response to one such user’s query on Twitter, Wind states that ‘we left out the pre-filled amount feature for now’. He added;
“Some wallet apps can read a pre-filled amount, and the web version implemented that, thus breaking support with some other clients. For this app we wanted 100% support, so we left out the pre-filled amount feature for now.”
On top of all, wind hints to connect to the XRPL DEX gateway that will certainly let merchants’ covert directly to fiat IOUs on the ledger. He says that;
First full speed ahead with the signing app + platform. DEX payments will be part of the app for sure!”
