Ripple has been working non-stop in terms of spreading its reach, with the firm recently marking a milestone by crossing more than 200 partnerships across 40 different countries. According to Crowd Fund Insider, Ripple has struck another partnership with Tsinghua University, in order to launch a scholarship program.

The Institute for Fintech Research, Tsinghua University [THUIFR] plans to launch a Blockchain Technology Research Scholarship Program [BRSP] for graduate students in China, and Ripple will be supporting the university’s cause with this partnership. THUIFR is a well-recognized and a leading research institute in China and based on its research resources and achievements it will be focusing on international regulatory policies and the development of blockchain technologies.

Ivy Gao, Director of International Cooperation and Development, THUIFR, said

“Most importantly, I believe, this program will greatly help with their future research or career in the field of blockchain technology.”

Eric van Miltenburg, Ripple’s SVP of Global Operations, said:

“The program’s goal – to provide students with opportunities in blockchain research – closely aligns with that of Ripple’s University Blockchain Research Initiative. We’re thrilled to support THUIFR in this endeavor and look forward to its launch.”

Ripple is well-known for its far-reaching partnerships financial industry related companies and even research-based companies and universities. The company plans to support and improve the academic research and development of blockchain and cryptocurrency.

Moreover, Ripple recently announced that it had a few banks going live with their blockchain solution xRapid, which continues to create a lot of buzz in the community. A few days after this announcement, more than five financial institutions announced their plans to go live with xRapid.



With its partnership with the Chinese University, Ripple is slowly moving into countries with strict rules and regulations when it comes cryptocurrencies, and this is considered as a breakthrough by some in the community.

@coupleofcrypto commented:

“Awesome. Go @Ripple. Most criticized in the crypto space, and yet by far the most active to get blockchain technology adopted worldwide… This is part of Ripple partnering with universities around the world to push blockchain development. It’s awesome, Ripple is really helping the entire crypto space, but you take it one step too far Just my opinion.”

The XRP community is vast and perhaps, the most active community in the crypto-ecosystem. The community’s active presence has led to many developers and new users flocking to the ecosystem. This has also led to the development of several XRP-centric products for the ecosystem.

A Twitter user and a well-known developer, @SchlaubiD, put out a tweet about his latest development of a Google Chrome extension. This extension can be used to identify the trustworthiness of XRP wallets. The tweet read,

Additionally, the developer mentioned,

“If you are maybe seeing #Coil payments on every page, keep calm it’s expected 🙂 The extension also implements a test for monetizing chrome extensions.”

While there are tools for other cryptocurrencies to check the trustworthiness of wallets, this is the first of its kind that lets users check the same, via an extension.

The developer had previously created an extension that allowed users to send XRP via emails. The first extension/add-on allows users to send XRP via Microsoft Outlook, and the second extension made it possible via Gmail.

Micro-payments are well-known and famous in the XRP community due to the nature of the XRP Ledger, which  settles transactions faster. The micro-payments scene caught on after Wietse Wind created XRP TipBot, which is now available on Twitter, Reddit, and other platforms. Ripple supported Wietse Wind with an investment via Xpring, for his future ventures.



A Twitter user, @John_S_cothill, commented,

“Congrats, this looks ace! Possible Gmail extension in future for the businesses that have moved away from Outlook (its a growing proportion), and personal users?”

@bigbuckor, another Twitter user, commented,

“This would be yet another revolution in the way we send money…with this, who would need Western Union?!”
