On December 6, Brad Garlinghouse, the Chief Executive Officer of the leading blockchain Fintech, Ripple, responded to one of the old letters sent by Joseph Lubin to his company, ConsenSys, at the beginning of this year. Here, the Founder of ConsenSys had elaborated on the desired shift in the company strategy and infrastructure to propel growth. To this, Garlinghouse on Twitter wrote:

“Interesting read about the strategy shift underway @ConsenSys; 2019 is about cutting back on the almost-50 spokes of the company to try and find a lane to stick to.”

He carried on with the series of tweets and mentioned that institutions are driven by capitalism rarely work without discipline. In his words:

“Undisciplined capitalism rarely has staying power. It has never “been enough to show up” it has never “been enough to do something cool”, it has never been “enough to make a splash”.”

The leader switched to speaking about his own firm, Ripple, where he conveyed that blockchain experiments that are conducted in the space are not the same as a business model. As per Garlinghouse, this is the approach behind Ripple’s focus on use cases for the technology from the very beginning. He also propagated that the approach is instrumental in solving real problems for real customers.

Ripple is a company that has demonstrated the significance of adoption through their focus on partnerships and collaborations in the past. One such example was constructed yesterday when XRP was selected as the first settlement mechanism for Corda Settler by the blockchain solution firm, r3.

It has also been established many times that the leaders at Ripple believe in working with the systems – regulations and infrastructure – is a key approach in bringing change and pushing adoption. Earlier this year, in an interview with CNBC Fast Money, Garlinghouse spoke about crypto-adoption and blockchain where he stated:

“It’s incredibly important that the entire industry recognizes that we have to work with the regulators, we have to work with the system. The blockchain revolution is happening from within the system it’s not going to happen from outside the system.”

The Ripple-backed startup, XRPL Labs had been working on various technologies to develop the ecosystem. One of these technologies, XRPayment, was in its testing phase and has been finally launched and made available on the Google Play store and Apple app store.

Wietse Wind, the developer of XRPtipbot and one of the developers at XRPL Labs, informed the XRP community about this on his Twitter. Wind stated:

“Right on time! 🎉 🎉 🎉 Our XRPayments app was just accepted by Google and Apple. You can get the app now from the Apple iOS or Google Play store, and start accepting $XRP for payments in your physical store!”

The application received a lot of traction, especially from the XRP enthusiasts, however, one of the users pointed out an issue he encountered while using the application. Twitter user @almost_summer_ asked Wind:



“hi Wietse great job! just downloaded it, if i open the coinbase or uphold wallet app i can scan the QR but it does not auto fill in the amount of XRP to send. the XRPay web version did fill in the amounts. is that supposed to be like that?”

Wind replied to the user saying that the team wanted users to think about the amount they and perhaps tip the service. He also 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.”

Wind and the team are also working on a ‘signing platform’ which will enable the users to sign and approve transactions from an application or the web application from any developer, without sharing their mnemonic, through a push message or QR code.
