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 http://xrptipbot.com/ and its open API https://www.xrptipbot.com/app/api-spec 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 http://moneymessage.radynamics.com/moneymessage_www/
What's more it has been now implemented in WooCommerce as well: https://github.com/empatogen/woocommerce-xrp
Why XRP? Here you can find an answer: https://xrpcommunity.blog/xrp-the-digital-asset-with-a-solid-foundation/
What's more Ripple has provided incredibly complete documentation for developers: https://developers.ripple.com/docs.html In order to confirm my words, have a look what the Developer of trustWallet says: https://twitter.com/vikmeup/status/1105509648453398528
Read about XRP ledger: https://developers.ripple.com/xrp-ledger-overview.html
I'm a developer who's familiar with MS products and created several tools for XRPL https://www.davidolliver.com/category/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 ;)
Peetar wake up and smell the dam roses man. F man F. You going to pull that shady Microsoft is looking in blockchain **** on us? OF COURSE Microsoft will only do what benefits them and not what the people want. ADOPT XRP and not some upcoming Microsoft shytkoin
xrp is the best choice
Minor update for those who want to have more info:
Ripple has released a major network upgrade of XRP Ledger, version 1.2.0 which introduces the MultisignReserve Amendment, which reduces the reserve requirement associated with signer lists for Multisign.
One of the major benefits of decentralized XRP Ledger is censorship resistance. Already highly resistant to censorship attempts, with the release of version 1.2.0 of the XRP Ledger, servers now have the ability to automatically detect transaction censorship attempts and issue warnings of increasing severity for transactions that a server believes should have been included in a closed ledger after several rounds of consensus.
Yesterday, the developer of the XRPTipBot has introduced a new powerful tool: XRPL-MultiSign which can be found at https://github.com/WietseWind/XRPL-MultiSignTool
Benefits of multi-signing include:
You can require keys from different devices so that a malicious actor must compromise multiple machines to send transactions on your behalf.
You can share custody of an address between multiple people, each of whom only has one of several keys necessary to send transactions from that address.
You can delegate the power to send transactions from your address to a group of people, who can control your address if you are unavailable or unable to sign normally.

Why I switched from ETH to XRP?
- Powerful protection mechanism
- Instant payment settlement
- Ridiculously low fees
- Doesn't have a counter-party
- It's decentralized: https://minivalist.cinn.app/
- It enables Coil (a revolutionary tool which uses an open API in order to pay sites in real-time ) to use it for Web monetization
- It was designed to solve real problems
- Since no new XRP can ever be created, this makes XRP more scarce and benefits all holders of XRP by making XRP more valuable.
- Rather than running applications as "smart contracts" in the network itself, the XRP Ledger provides tools for settling contracts, while letting the applications themselves run anywhere, in whatever environment or container is appropriate.
- A "51% attack" is an attack on a blockchain system where one party controls more than 50% of all mining or voting power. The XRP Ledger is not vulnerable to a 51% attack because it does not use mining in its consensus mechanism.
- You can protect against unwanted incoming payments for non-XRP currencies by not creating trust lines in those currencies
- The XRPL network is opt-in. Each participant directly or indirectly chooses its UNL. Should Ripple stop operating participants could change their UNLs to continue using the XRPL
- XRP is 𝗘𝗰𝗼-𝗙𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗹𝘆 𝗠𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘆 https://twitter.com/parisbydavid/status/1097791377692389376
Hope this helps beginners and newcomers.
P.S. Not being biased, trying to be realistic and I always act based on my own experience and vision. And I just shared it with you :)
Can already send xrp to others as an attachment on microsoft hotmail, so this would be another microsoft win if us xrp hodlrs can pay skype with our xrp.

ADD XRP watch the magic ensue
Add xrp and others please
Great idea, Patrick! Why not?
Patrick Boake commented
This should be an API so Toast Wallet's >200K users can get in on it
Thanks for your comments and contribution. As an early investor of ETH I'm familiar with it and I've built my first application on ETH blockchain.
However, things changed;
Sentiments have changed: https://twitter.com/vitalikbuterin/status/1077548790272405504?lang=en;
Market paradigms have changed.
The reality is:
Raw Processing Speed (On-chain)
• XRP: 1,500 TPS
• Ethereum: 15 TPS
• Bitcoin: 6 TPS
Average full confirmation times for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and XRP:
• Bitcoin: 1 hour
• Ethereum: 3.75 minutes
• XRP: 3.75 seconds

All this time, I've been doing a lot of researches about Blockchain and I've written a couple of articles too. In case you want to have a look at them:
But I highly recommend you to read the following blog by David Schwartz: https://www.distributedagreement.com/2019/03/01/what-are-blockchains-good-for/
We want something better than PoW and I think we deserve something better, a secure, fast, smart and reliable system and not the one which is vulnerable: https://twitter.com/1reizu/status/1081957362393587713
Look at this excitement, MicroDonations have become the main trend on CT thanks to #XRP. As of now 64562.786786 XRP -> donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Source: https://www.xrptipbot.com/u:stjude/n:twitter ).
Words are not needed if your actions speak loud enough for you.
As a developer, as a journalist, as a dreamer, as someone who loves tech, I truly believe this excitement will continue and you guys will change the world by listening to so many voices.
Again, thanks for the time you're giving to this idea. We're happy and waiting for a positive reply :)
An older article, but still a nice example of how to use blockchain as a Service. In this case with Azure:
Xrp the standard!

SKPE+XRP = Internet of Value.
Sandra, darling... If you ever see all the cars driving towards you on a road... It might be you're driving on the wrong direction.
Thanks Skype, I use your services for calling my Gf and having the capacity to integrate XRP onto your services would make me buy Skype credits aswell :)
Keep going, you'll find the most supportive community on us!
How would SKYPE intend to be currency agnostic?
Perhaps you would consider W3C's Interledger Protocol.
David rushton commented
I do know that the bill gates foundation is using XRP. Be like Bill the saying goes right?
Daniel Pinho commented
You can now also send XRP through SMS messages... What are you waiting for skype??
Thank you for your reply, Petr. You actually made my day! We'll try to keep alive this conversation. And we honestly believe the future belongs to cryptocurrencies.
I offered XRP because, in my opinion, being a native digital asset of the decentralized XRP ledger, it is the fastest, cheapest and most scalable digital asset offering instant, secure and reliable payment solution, + without a counter-party.
Recently I introduced it to Rakuten Marketing team and they find it revolutionary. Aside from the reasons offered earlier, you may also want to consider the number of independent developers who work on XRPL to provide ultimate applications.
I'm really unable to repress my excitement.
To sum up, XRP has huge potential to enable micropayments through your network.

This is a really good idea, I am looking forward to it ! :)
Ripple is even in high-level discussions with the IMF and US Government to promote and make regulation clarity and further partnerships with institutions all over the world.
