Ripple Expands Its Efforts To Boost The Development And Adoption Of XRP
Ripple and XRP have been in the spotlight a lot during 2019 with all kinds of achievements.
Overall, the San Francisco-based company has been making increased efforts to boost the XRP ecosystem and to trigger mainstream adoption for the coin.
The only missing thing is a rise in price for the digital asset, but Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse said more than once that their focus is not on the short term but in the long run, and there are more important things than a boost in XRP’s price at the moment.
Xpring released a new SDK
Ethan Beard, who runs Ripple’s fundraising and development arm, Xpring, says the company has released a new SDK designed to make it easier for engineers to build on the XRP Ledger.
He continued and explained: “Now, using this SDK, an iOS developer who writes in Swift can actually just use ten lines of code to do the exact same thing. We’re going to make it available in a variety of different languages to support the entire world of developers.”
