“In an interview, Coins.ph head of cryptocurrencies, Colin Goltra, told Bitpinas that they have rolled out XRP integration to a limited number of randomly selected participants. A number of these trial users have posted screenshots of their Coins.ph XRP wallets on Twitter. XRP will be one of the wallets immediately found on the app’s dashboard, and users can freely swipe between the other wallets, including the PHP wallet. We’re still gathering data and deciding on our level of support for XRP,’ said Mr. Goltra in a statement. He confirms that there’s no definite date yet for the general release of XRP wallets across all Coins.ph users.”See more for yourself, here. Of course, this isn’t the biggest announcement that could have been made for XRP, but, it is an exciting development and gives XRP a whole new use value in the Philippines. It is use value like this that does cryptocurrency adoption a favour. If people can see there’s already a tried and tested way to pay bills in XRP, or Bitcoin, or any cryptocurrency, they are more likely to try it out for themselves and thus, the chance of adoption is increased. It’s great that XRP is now involved in this as it will also help spread the name of XRP across the Philippines, something that might prove vital for the Ripple team given that in some parts of the world, XRP is becoming more frowned upon by the day.
