Apple added a listing of Ripple’s XRP token price in their stocks app. This will allow Apple users worldwide to stay up to date on the prices of the cryptocurrency.
The coin has been listed with a wide variety of pairings, with users reporting pairings with US Dollar [USD], Euros [EUR], Great Britain Pounds [GBP], Canadian Dollar [CAD], Indian Rupee [INR], Australian Dollar [AUD], Japanese Yen [JPY], Russian Ruble [RUB], Korean Won [KRW], and Chinese Yuan [CNY]. It also features pairs for Ethereum [ETH] and Bitcoin [BTC]. The tracking information for the prices is reportedly run by Nasdaq, with USD pair tracking managed by Bitstamp.
This marks the integration of cryptocurrencies into Apple’s stocks app. Earlier this week, Justin Sun’s Tron currency also saw an integration into the app. However, Ripple has the highest number of pairs than any other cryptocurrency on the app, signifying that global exchanges may have come on board.
The community grew excited at the news, with users posting notifications of the development. User EXTRA HARDCORE XRP said:
“Apple has officially included $XRP pricing! Just add XRP-USD to your Stocks app. 1B @Apple users around the will be able to keep on top of #XRP market info. Come grow with us!”
Jiminy Crypto commented on Twitter:
“Same as everyone else though….everyone loves the tech…never announce xrp is part of their plans though”
The price of the token has seen a slight increase since this development occurred, with a hike from $0.60, where it was trading previously, to $0.61, which is its current price. Ripple has suffered the bearish market like every other coin this past week.

Ripple’s XRP Ledger Dev Portal unveils updated version of WebSocket API Tool
Ripple XRP Ledger Dev Portal revealed an updated version of the WebSocket API Tool. The latest development in the Ripple ecosystem will enable users to directly communicate with rippled servers, which is responsible for powering the XRP Ledger Network.
An official post detailing the WebSocket update stated that the tool has been incorporated with unique functionalities to the existing tool structure. The “refreshed tool” which was launched as part of the recent site relaunch, allow users to choose which servers to connect, which will include public servers that Ripple operates, XRP Test Net servers or any server that the user locally runs on its computer. This feature is called Server Selector.
The refreshed tool provides options to connect to Ripple’s general-purpose public XRP Ledger servers, full-history public servers, Test Net servers, or to your own server running locally. This list can also change to provide more options in the future.
Another feature incorporated in the latest update is the new Permalink button. The button provides a link wherein users can use to share the current state of their inputs, which includes the request body and the selected server. The official post detailed that the Permalink feature is similar to other web tools such as JSFiddle or CodePen, which “provides a way to prepare a set of inputs and share it with others.”
Another feature is the curl Syntax Button, represented by “>_ ” icon. The button is designed to load a popup with the current inputs of the request box, which is converted into a JSON-RPC call which can be made with the curl utility.
To eliminate simple syntax errors, the upgraded tool has incorporated a feature called Error Highlighting, which as the name suggests, highlights lines with errors by placing red circled X marks.
The Message History Management will display all types of messages in one single stream, which maintains a history of the user’s previous calls until the page is closed or a different server is selected or the history is cleared by selecting the “Clear History” button. The blog further detailed,
“The amount of history the tool keeps at a time isn’t unlimited, which is another change from the previous version. By default, any time the tool receives a new message, it deletes any messages older than the most recent 50, though you can set this to be any amount you like.”
