Recently, the senior vice president of Xpring Ethan Beard, talked about how the company is working on expanding the XRP ecosystem through Xpring. He said they are already putting certain plans in place to make sure that more institutions embrace XRP as the original reason for the creation of Xpring is to promote the adoption and use cases of XRP.
Beard said that he is happy that Xpring is working perfectly as a developer platform noting that the team is now 10 times larger than it was this time last year. In his words;
“We’re building out APIs, SDKs and various libraries and services to make it so that anyone who wants to come along and build on XRP can do so very easily. And then we’ll also be spending a lot of time bringing these products to market and reaching developers wherever they are around the world.”
He said that Xpring is going to start hosting developer conferences where top developers can meet and discuss. Already, the Xpring funding arm has invested in more than 20 blockchain startups. The total amount that has been invested so far is about $500 million.
Apart from the $500 million investment in 20 companies, Xpring recently gave Coil a grant worth 1 billion XRP for content monetization and expansion of Interledger Protocol. This is also another move that would lead to an increase in the adoption of XRP.
