Ripple-Backed Startup Reveals New XRP Payments App
The Ripple-backed startup XRPL Labs is developing a new payments app designed to give store owners an easy way to accept XRP.
A prototype of the point-of-sale (PoS) system is up and running, and will be tested at an upcoming meetup in The Netherlands. The app is tentatively titled XRPay, although the name will likely change to avoid confusion with a competing platform with the same name.

Ripple’s fundraising and development arm Xpring recently backed XRPL Labs. The undisclosed investment amount, denominated in XRP, is expected to fuel the company’s efforts for two to three years.
