XRP adoption explodes, XRP community shares the excitement
The XRP community is excited of the jump this will give to XRP’s adoption. One Twitter user said,
“Great work! So essentially anything at Walmart, Amazon, Starbucks, etc could now be purchased with XRP through the Bitcoin Superstore platform.”
To which the company replied,
“Precisely! Nearly anything you can order online can be purchased with XRP through our company.”
One Redditor shared in part,
“We think it’s a great thing to have that option. Many would maybe not yet spend much of XRP, but if it raises to significant value, then spending it is definitely an option. It would be then nice to spend xrp straight without converting it to €uro.”
However, the company mistakenly using Ripple instead of XRP didn’t go well with the community as they corrected just like this Twitter user, “Although it’s a lovely initiative, though you’re kicking off very bad… @Ripple is a company & $XRP is the digital asset that you’re referring to. This has to be clarified. You’re accepting #XRP and not #Ripple. Thank you.” Bitcoin Superstore assured to make the changes and not to “make that mistake again.”
“May have to change our name and logo if all this love continues!” the company responded as one of the most supportive and active communities in the crypto market praised the company for XRP addition.
