Ripple and mass adoption: an XRP payment plugin for WooCommerce

XRP Labs has launched a contest aimed at rewarding those who will create a payment plugin to integrate XRP into WooCommerce, the platform dedicated to e-commerce developed on WordPress.

The first 1000 XRPs were donated by the creator of the Wietse Wind fund and it seems that it has already conquered the hearts of all fans of the Ripple cryptocurrency, to such an extent that today it counts more than 3,000 XRPs worth about $950.

XRP Labs is a platform for the creation and development of applications for the XRP ledger, which is currently working on the development of a decentralised operating system for crypto exchanges, e-wallets and crypto storage services, having received funding from Ripple for the last 3 years.

The one-size-fits-all incentive for the developer who will create the plugin would mean a real increase in the adoption of XRP, in terms of the numbers that WooCommerce represents on the web.

Details about the WooCommerce plugin for XRP

The plugin to integrate XRP in WooCommerce must include the following features:

  • Open source with a code published on Github;
  • Stable and secure;
  • User-friendly;
  • Being able to handle multiple smaller payments for a single order;
  • Use a secure server;
  • Use an auto generated tag destination for each order.

According to the data reported, WooCommerce is used by 3.3 million websites, which is linked to the platform that is also the most used on the web, WordPress, which powers 33% of all websites on the Internet.

But trying to become a crypto par excellence of the most used WordPress platform is not such an original idea.

Last July, it was already shown how it is possible to use Lightning Network payments on WooCommerce.
