TipBot is already integrated with popular forum Reddit as well as social media and messaging platforms including Gmail, Twitter, Discord and Microsoft Outlook.
Before now, Microsoft-owned Skype had suggested it was open to the idea of integrating xrp and cryptocurrency the platform. When an XRP proponent requested that Skype added a feature that allowed users to send XRP by supporting the XRP tipBot tool, a Microsoft representative explained they are open to the idea though they have not developed cryptocurrency feature for Skype yet.
“Like any other leading technology company, Microsoft is already testing blockchain,” the rep said in a forum response.
“Although I don’t have any information about cryptocurrency adoption for Skype or any other MS product, please keep continuing supporting this idea. I will share it with our teams.”
