Ripple’s digital asset XRP is enjoying some pretty important achievements in terms of getting closer to mass adoption.
You may recall that the coin was successfully integrated into WooCommerce platform which powers 3.3 million online stores.
You can imagine what this means for XRP’s accessibility and popularity.
XRP goes into gaming
Now, blockchain startup Forte which is backed by Ripple just revealed that they are in the talks with more 40 developers who are considering bringing XRP into the world of gaming.
Not too long ago, Ripple and Forte revealed a $100 million fund targeting companies that are making games based on the blockchain tech and leverage XRP as a settlement currency.
During a brand new interview with Modern Consensus, Forte co-founder and COO Kent Wakeford said that the company is already discussing with more than 40 developers after attending the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
“Response has been strong. This has been an incredibly successful GDC for us. We met with over 40 game developers and are in active discussions to deploy the $100 million fund. We’re looking at existing games with existing items and existing audiences over 50,000 registered users,” he said.
Using XRP to settle transactions
He also revealed that the platform is designed in such a way to enable gamers to buy and sell non-fungible tokens (NFTs) using XRP in order to settle transactions.
But, he continued and explained that “Even though we’ve partnered with Ripple on the fund, we’re agnostic to all of the first level protocols whether people want to build on Ethereum, EOS, TRON or any of the other platforms.”
It’s also important to mention that the gaming industry is worth about $43 billion and it’s the p[efect venue for early blockchain adoption.
Ripple and XRP have been in the spotlight recently after CCN online publication shaded the two entitites and the XRP army of fans.
