Skype to consider possible XRP integration

Posted 12 April, 2019

Ripple community developer David Olliver has recently sent a request, asking Skype to add support for the XRP token for micropayments.

The representatives of the company provided an immediate response and agreed to launch cooperation aimed at the cryptocurrency integration.

David Olliver shared on Twitter:

"Ladies and Gentlemen!
Petr from @Skype finally replied with a promising message (see below)
He also asked us to support this idea by voting and sharing your thoughts. If you didn't vote, please do it now. A small contribution can change the future."

In particular, one of the Skype employees wrote that he shared a proposal with other team members. Nevertheless, he stressed that Skype is a division of Microsoft and the decision on integration into the cryptocurrency service should be made at the company level, and therefore it may take some time.

Now the Ripple community is trying to collect as many votes as possible on the Skype UserVoice website, where users can offer their ideas on how to improve the service. At the time of writing, the introduction of cryptocurrency payments (XRP and others) was supported by over 1,400 people.

The main idea of ​​Ripple developers is to implement micropayments on Skype. Allow buying SkypeCredits using XRpTipBot, as well as send micropayments in Skype chat. XRPtipBot is now available in 40+ languages. It's available for Twitter, Reddit, Discord, Telegram and recently has been added to Microsoft Outlook.

Recall, Ripple payment solutions are already testing Western Union, as representatives of the company said in February.
