Ripple to give away 1 billion XRP through Coil monetization platform for creators

Published

on

Ripple is pumping one billion of its XRP cryptocurrency (about $262 million) into Coil, a platform bidding to help writers and artists monetize their content on the internet.

Founded by former Ripple CTO Stefan Thomas, Coil uses an open API to stream micropayments in any currency, including XRP, to creators – such as writers, streamers and artists – in real time.

Launched in May, the publishing platform lets creators post public and exclusive content on their Coil-compatible websites, which is automatically enabled for streaming payments.

Then, anyone who wants to support the creators can join the community with a $5 monthly subscription. When they consume content, Coil streams a portion of the subscription in XRP micropayments to the authors in real time using the Interledger Protocol.



Creators – who do

not pay a membership fee – have the option to be paid out in US dollars via cheque, ACH or wire transfer, or in XRP.

Coil will use the one billion XRP “grant” to give the platform a kickstart, building an ecosystem of creators, developers, companies and nonprofits that are using XRP through the Web Monetization open standard. 

Some of the funds will also be used to help build awareness of Coil among creators, consumers and strategic partners. The firm has already invested in image-sharing site Imgur and Cinnamon, a video streaming service. 

Ripple’s investment arm, Xpring, has also participated in Coil’s $4 million seed round alongside Thomas.

Ethan Beard, SVP, Xpring, says: “Advertising and site-by-site subscription models are ready for disruption. The low cost and fast transactions of XRP makes it an ideal tool for Coil to offer an alternative monetization method and have a positive impact on creators.”

XRP Sets New Liquidity Record

Published

on

Bitso, the largest crypto exchange in Mexico, which utilizes Ripple On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) product, added another million on top of  XRP’s Liquidity Index, breaking the all-time high record.

Previously, XRP/MXN transaction volume figure stood at around 8.5 million. It was surpassed yesterday with the new record now being over 9 million U.S. dollars and the daily progress is 92 percent.

XRP gets positive feedback from the US government

In sperate development, the US governmental agency, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), has mentioned Ripple’s XRP in relation to cross-border transactions. XRP was mentioned in a  document on Remittance Transfers Under the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, which is still in discussion until January 2021.

The document

suggested that Ripple and XRP can effectively be used in international money transfers. The report also suggests that it is now possible for banks to see the total sum of the transaction that will be collected by recipients prior to the transfer itself.

These developments suggest that in the future there may be means by which banks and credit unions could reduce their remaining reliance on estimates. These developments all share a fundamental similarity: They all apply elements of a closed network payments system to cross-border money transfers sent by banks and credit unions.

However, CFPB also recognizes that those solutions are not going to be having any significant effect on the market, at least in a short time. Companies will still have to rely on traditional banking to handle their payments.

“It is definitely a possibility we are exploring. However, it is not yet listed on Luno…” Low said.

He continued and explained that “Ripple also has a remittance use case which we are excited about. That’s why we want to introduce it to Malaysians, as it allows people on the platform to access and learn about it, and figure out new

ways to use this technology for their benefits.”

The portal that Ripple is creating is called Xpring.io and it’s designed to provide developers a one-stop-shop in order to manage “everything they need when it comes to integrating payments into their applications and a way to unify the various platforms they already use,” according to official notes.

The platform also features a custom wallet that allows engineers to test XRP payments and also to create addresses.
