Wietse Wind Offers A Behind-The-Scenes Look At XRP Tip Bot
Wietse Wind, the founder of Ripple-backed XRPL Labs offers people an insight into one of his creations, the XRP Tip Bot.
During an interview on the XRP Community Blog, Wind said that the platform serves as a fertile testing ground for things to come.

He said “We consider the XRP Tip Bot (platform/app) as a great experimental environment for things we want to use in production with XRPL Labs. Since we already have a great user base/fan base with over 7,500 installations of the application, it’s a really great mixed testing environment.”
Wind continued and said, “So take the Bluetooth feature: We’d be implementing things like that into the TipBot app and testing it with the community before we would use it in the XRPL Labs Signing App.”
In other news, XRPL Labs has just launched a new payments app that’s designed to give store owners an easy way of accepting the digital asset XRP.
The app is called XRPayments, and it became available on both iOS and Android via the App Store and Google Play Store.
The app is able to turn any compatible device into a PoS system, and this allows retailers to accept XRP on the spot.
The founder of XRPL Labs Wietse Wind said that this app would be used at an upcoming XRP meetup in The Netherlands.
XRPayments has a built-in currency converter which allows users from any country to calculate the conversion from fiat currencies to XRP.
The XRP community is completely supporting Wind and says that the moves of XRPL Labs are boosting the digital asset XRP.
This year both entities, XRP and Ripple have been really successful, and the company has been enjoying new partnerships.
Also, the coin saw more listings, and it’s definitely on the right path towards mass adoption, one of the main goals for 2019.
