Content creators on YouTube and Twitch can now accept Ripple
Blockchain is creeping into the mainstream
Ripple is hitting the world of online broadcasting this month.
And with Coil, the Tipping-for-content system has introduced a beta version of its platform, meaning that viewers will be able to tip their favorite streamers and content developers in XRP.
Started by Stefan Thomas, Ripple Lab’s former CTO, the system holds the potential as a use-case for using XRP as a means of bringing blockchain, and cryptocurrency payments specifically, to the world of live streaming and online content.
Content providers that have already signed up to use the beta of Coil include Youtube, Twitch, and Wikipedia with more possibly being added in the near future.
