Breakthrough XRP Fiat-to-Crypto Platform Launches Beta, Works Without a Crypto Exchange
A unique platform designed to let users convert fiat into XRP with incredibly low fees and without a crypto exchange is gearing up for launch.
The independent XRP programmer Wietse Wind has launched an invite-only beta version of XRParrot. The platform is remarkably simple: Just enter your XRP wallet address and wire the money you’d like to convert to the platform’s designated bank account. The fiat then gets converted to XRP which is deposited into the provided wallet address.
Beta users report the entire process completes in a matter of hours, for a fee of just one euro.
Just beta tested @WietseWind's @XRParrot.so easy. you put your wallet addresss in, wire the money to the given account and confirm it with a code that you get on the phone. After https://t.co/jdRJNOPqBl processed, a confirm.text like this follows. Fee: 1eur. So awesome! pic.twitter.com/Hepgt4k3od

It's just a SEPA/IBAN payment (which thanks to EU efforts to speed up money, takes one day). The payment goes to @WietseWind's xrparrot account which automatically converts to xrp, sends to purchaser's wallet after service fee.
Wietse is "the people's liquidity provider."

No word on what regulations may have to be met or licenses acquired in order for the platform to launch on a large scale, or how the platform could be implemented in countries such as the US, with strict money transmitter laws.
Wietse Wind is on a roll lately. The extremely active developer is also integrating his popular XRP Tip Bot with the Coil crypto donation platform. He’s also supporting a project to bring the bot to Amazon Alexa.
