Ripple’s XRP has achieved another major landmark in its journey to mainstream adoption. The cryptocurrency is now fully integrated with Woocommerce the online market giant that powers 3.3 million online stores. The asset achieved this through a bounty program by Wietse Wind who is the founder of XRPL Labs.
It was announced just last week that Wind was offering 3,000 XRP (over $900) as a prize to anyone who successfully integrates XRP with Woocommerce. Today, this has become a reality and well, XRP is potentially witnessing adoption by over 3 million users overnight.
Wind’s XRPL Labs have come to be friendly with XRP because of his love for the cryptocurrency. The lab is making significant contributions in the promotion of cryptocurrency especially XRP. apart from the integration which Winds just achieved, XRPL Labs is also working on launching a decentralized exchange similar to what Binance is working on.
XRP has also contributed to supporting the projects executed by Winds which are mostly XRP-centred e.g. the XRP Tip Bot which is now a popular bot for sending tips on social media.
Ripple (XRP) has been favored in most of the developments in the cryptocurrency space recently. Notably, the asset was listed on Coinbase Pro just weeks ago and also, its payment services are increasingly being sought after.
Just recently, Israel’s leading cryptocurrency exchange eToro announced its intention to adopt xRapid, the famous Ripple payment platform that uses XRP for liquidity. These and many other happenings in the space point to increasing popularity for Ripple and XRP despite the several controversies surrounding the company and digital asset.
Integration with Woocommerce will be one of the greatest achievements recorded by Ripple and XRP this year as millions of users are likely to adopt the asset which is a dream come true for any cryptocurrency.
Ethereum has been the second largest cryptocurrency after Bitcoin for months now which some XRP fans are not okay with because they believe XRP is bigger than Ethereum. With more than 3 million online stores on the verge of adopting it, XRP may just be able to reclaim the second spot, or maybe not. Only time will tell.
