XRP Integrated With WooCommerce – The Ripple Effect

In less than 10 days, Ripple-backed XRPL Labs has turned an idea on how to bring XRP to 3.3 million online stores into reality.

The founder of XRPL Labs, Wietse Wind, posted a bounty on Twitter on March 7th, offering a community-backed reward of more than 3,000 XRP to anyone who successfully integrates XRP with the online payment platform WooCommerce.

A week and a half later, a developer named Jesper Wallin submitted a completed payment gateway plugin designed to let WooCommerce users easily accept XRP as a payment method. Wietse Wind reviewed the code and promptly gave Wallin the bounty, which had grown to 4,635 XRP worth about $1,469.
