Weiss Ratings Hints That Microsoft May Soon Integrate XRP on Skype
In a Tweet on April 16, Weiss Rating hinted that Microsoft, the company that controls Skype may soon integrate Ripple’s XRP into the telecommunications application. The adoption could possibly allow 300 million monthly active users on Skype to tip each other with the cryptocurrency and make micropayments. Weiss also noted that the XRPtipBot which could be used in this case has already been adopted by Gmail, Microsoft Outlook, Reddit, Twitter, Twitch and several other online platforms.
A User Brings Up the Idea to Integrate XRPtipBot on Skype
Prior to this time, a user shared their idea with Microsoft about integrating the XRPtipBot on Skype. According to them, we are now in the era of micropayments and as such, there is a need for its implementation on Skype. “Allow us to buy SkypeCredits with XRpTipBot, allow us to send micro payments on Skype chat as well,” the poster also said.
It is worthy to note that the poster did not stop there but also gave instances of where the XRPtipBot has been implemented. These are Twitter, Reddit, Discord, Telegram, and even WooCommerce. The suggestion has, so far, gotten 2337 votes as at press time.
An admin who responded to the post said:
Cryptocurrency micropayments sounds really cool right..Like any other leading technology company Microsoft is already testing blockchain. Although I don’t have any information about cryptocurrency adoption for Skype or any other MS product, please keep continue supporting this Idea. I will share it with our teams
Crypto Tippin Services Gain Adoption on Social Media Platforms
The use of the XRPtipBot is no longer new to the cryptocurrency space, especially on Twitter. Its aim is to encourage quality content where those who publish them can get rewarded by their followers. Like the XRPtipBot, Tippin.me has also launched one that allows Bitcoin to be sent as tips to people.
Tippin.me does not only work on social media platforms, but it can also be embedded in websites in order for authors to receive tips from their readers. The best part is, it makes use of the Lightning Network for payments. The latter ensures that sent funds are delivered on time with less fee levied.
As more and more platforms allow its users to tip each other, it will most likely foster the adoption of cryptocurrencies. High-level interest can be garnered from people who on a normal day may only be interested in sharing pictures, videos, and messages. Moreover, as they interact with these assets, they are educated about them.
