A while ago, the XRP-based app TipBot was on the news for being used to raise significant funds during a charity event. Since then, the app has gained more adoption after an updated version was released. The new version allows Apple users to use the app through Siri, Apple’s popular virtual assistant. The news was first posted by one of the members of the XRP community. The post was as follows:
“If you have Siri, find a user with the @XRPTipBot and scan the QR code. If you don’t want to scan the code, you can use your contact list. Set the amount you intend to send and confirm the tip.”
Wietse Wind, the creator of XRP’s TipBot tipped five members of the XRP community on the thread. The person who posted the information acknowledged the XRP TipBot update.

Another cryptocurrency enthusiast on Twitter asked how a user at the receiving end can see the received funds. While Wietse Wind didn’t reply, a different user suggested that the information will be accessible on the official XRP TipBot website.
