XRP is ranked number three on CoinMarketCap as it is worth a market capital of $33,001,580,435 with XRP currently trading at $0.89.  The Hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg has promoted digitalized currency before, commenting on his Twitter account vouching “Put that Crip in that Crypto” for Robinhood Crypto App. As of now celebrities such as Floyd Mayweather, Jammie Foxx, and Paris Hilton have endorsed or invested in cryptocurrency.

Snoop Dogg has been featured as the ‘lungs’ of the hip-hop and rap community. At the Ripple’s fore-coming event, he’ll be exhibited as a prominent figure from the music industry supporting cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Snoop Dogg is known worldwide for his music and endorsement for the legalization of marijuana. The world-class singer-performer is expected to make a spectacular presence endorsing for VIP event hosted by Ripple.

There is an awaiting talk show between Cory Johnson and Brad Garlinghouse tomorrow at 3:30 pm PST wherein they’ll be doing an in-depth analysis of Ripple.

Ripple’s recent tweet, Jacob Anderson comments:

“He must have understood ‘shizzle’ instead of ‘ripple’ when they called him up to ask for the event. And then he will perform a rap ‘ripple my nipple’.  Instead he should just invest in Dogycoin, he might get some incentives there.”

Juan Suarez O a twitter user says:

“Big, big fan of #XRP and @Ripple but, for some reason, this move doesn’t seem right for a digital asset whose principal pitch are for financial Institutions. Maybe, another singer/celebrity would have done a better trick, unless I’m missing the point.”

Coil, a venture launched by the creator of Interledger Protocol [ILP], Stefan Thomas, is being tested for monetization by Mozilla’s senior developer David Walsh. Coil makes use of ILP and XRP to monetize creators and put an end to ad-based monetization by mainly helping content creators while allowing the consumers to access content online easy.

Coil tweeted:

David Walsh is a senior software engineer at Mozilla, and this could be a step in the right direction for Coil, which is trying to improve content monetization.

Since XRP can better handle micropayments, Coil is using it to get work around the ad-based revenue model. A blog by Coil previously  stated:

“One of the reasons the ad-supported model is still so dominant is because payments technology wasn’t ready yet. Each payment currently requires multiple steps just to authorize it, let alone signing up with different merchants. We’ve worked with Microsoft, Google, Mozilla, and others to create the W3C Web Payments Request API that has been rolling out to billions of iOS and Android devices but we can go so much further.”

Moreover, with XRP and ILP, Coil can process a “trillion” transactions per second without any central authority. Stefan Thomas, the inventor of ILP and creator of Coil said:

“Instead of building yet another proprietary platform, Coil will be the first company to pay out to any website using Web Monetization, a new standard for how browsers can pay websites using Interledger.”
