Skype Ideas

Add cryptocurrency micropayments to Skype (XRP and others)

Dear Skype, The age of MicroPayments has come and we need your support. The era of Internet of Value is kocniking at the door. My idea is to implement micropayments in Skype. Allow us to buy SkypeCredits with XRpTipBot , allow us to send micro payments on Skype chat as well.
Please have a look at and its open API which is pretty easy to implement.
XRPtipBot is now available in 40+ languages. It's available for Twitter / Reddit / Discord / Telegram and recently has been added to Microsoft Outlook please visit
What's more it has been now implemented in WooCommerce as well:
Why XRP? Here you can find an answer:
What's more Ripple has provided incredibly complete documentation for developers: In order to confirm my words, have a look what the Developer of trustWallet says:
Read about XRP ledger:
I'm a developer who's familiar with MS products and created several tools for XRPL and if I can assist in any way to make it happen, please let me know

Hi. Thanks for sharing this Idea! Cryptocurrency micropayments sounds really cool right :) Like any other leading technology company Microsoft is already testing blockchain.
Although I don’t have any information about cryptocurrency adoption for Skype or any other MS product, please keep continue supporting this Idea. I will share it with our teams :)
Note: I’ve edited the title of this Idea little bit so it fits to cryptocurrencies generally ;)

- Petr

    Hi there,

    Yesterday I shared an idea of enabling premium profiles. A few hours ago Tyler Winklevoss published the same idea but related to emails. So you can see the upcoming changes :) He said in his Tweet:

    - I can't wait until crypto makes email market-based. Sending an email to @elonmusk and effectively renting his time to read it would have a price, sending an email to someone else would have another price, and so on.
    Everyone's email could be public as long as they were priced right, which would be set by them and could be adjusted at any time. Friends and family would be whitelisted so they didn't have to pay your digital postage fee.

    So my idea seems legit and pretty cool.

    This is my favorite quote and let me share this with you:
    Out on the edge, you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center. Big, undreamed-of things - the people on the edge see them first (Kurt Vonnegut)
    We could be the people on the edge and we are.

    Hello there,

    Unfortunately, I was not able to post more updates. I won't be available for some time. But here is a new idea for you.

    If Skype enables crypto payments, then Business people can create business profiles and get paid for different services. The profiles can create a list of offers, make it public so that everyone can access and check them. Just like Warrior Forum is doing but without third-paty applications.

    Skype can successfully replace Freelance services. It's a well-known fact that clients and freelancers prefer to talk through Skype. Crypto payments and smart contracts can change the whole system of Skype.

    With Crypto Skype can offer a better solution than by enabling Premium profiles.


    I would be more than happy to know that we've got some progress on this.

    You should consider looking into DigiByte. It's a blockchain with great potential. A forward thinking blockchain is what you need to integrate first before adding anything else!

    idk about XRP but I do love the idea of using crypto to either send to friends and or buy credits

  • FutureTeller commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Xrp tipbot is great. But DigiByte (DGB) is the fastest utxo blockchain. So when looking to integrate cryptocurrencies that gives seamless transfer with fast transaction speeds- DGB is the way to go!

    XRP has very low wallet transfer time. Added to this, charges are low. I definitely recommend its addition to Skype considering having experience using XRP for payments earlier

    Dear Petr,

    I'd love to hear your thoughts or some update. If and when you decide to implement cryptocurrencies, please consider me as a BETA TESTER.
    Recently, I downloaded MS BOTbuilder and have been reading the docs at and building a small app. But to be honest, I'd love to see something big for XRP, on-ledger payments, etc. At the moment, and I know this is not something you were looking for, but Crypto Media refers to you as "Petr from Skype" and for all of us, you're a bridge and a window to the future.

    I kindly ask you, pretty please, do your best to make it happen.

    Kind regards,

    XRP is the token for future payments and banking ! Skype need this tech and will be great if they adopt it!
