A day earlier, Ripple’s development arm, XRPL Labs, released a prototype version of xPop, the software that enables users to make payments through their devices without being on the internet.
Payment without internet
The announcement was made during the Apex event, the XRPL Developer Summit. In the presentation that the speaker initially highlighted, the problem that xPoP is supposed to solve is that if a user wants to make a payment online via XRPL and has no internet connection, the machine cannot verify this without internet.
To solve the problem, XRPL Labs introduced the concept of proof of payment. Proof of payment enables devices that are not connected to the internet to conduct transactions.
Transactions would be made via animated QR codes. The recipient stated that the reason for using animated QR codes is because cameras are cheap, cameras do not require licenses, phone screens are in HD, QR codes are similar to users, and it even works in noisy environments (could be noise technical or from a crowded room).
XRP current price
Currently trading at $ 1.08, XRP is up over 3% in the past 24 hours. Just hours before XRP broke key resistance at $ 1.10, 50-day SMA, to hit $ 1.11.
As mentioned in the previous article, now that XRP has successfully overcome a major resistance, there is a high probability that it will exceed about $ 1.41 in the next week.
The encouraging signs the market is showing shouldn’t be a problem as BTC has passed its 90-day high and is trading at a May price level, which technically means that BTC is currently at a 120-day high .
Additionally, legal proceedings are going pretty well for the Ripple as well, with XRP owners recently being asked by the judge to give their views on the case.
