The founder of a financially Ripple-backed startup, Wietse Wind, wants to push ahead with adapting Ripple's native cryptocurrency, XRP, with his company, XRPL Labs. He has created a bonus available to any developer who programs a plugin that integrates XRP into WooCommerce.

WooCommerce is a plugin for websites that run WordPress and provide a payment interface for fiat currencies. Wind wants to enable the integration of XRP through its engagement and thus contribute to the promotion and further development of XRP. WooCommerce is used by around 3.3 million websites worldwide and is one of the leading payment platforms on the Internet. XRPL Labs is developing a distributed Exchange as well as mobile wallets and cold storage wallets for digital assets. Wind received an unpublished sum from XRP last month from Ripple Xpring's investment arm to work full-time on the project with two full-time employees.
Litecoin Foundation publishes e-book for Blockchain-Newbies
The adaptation of Litecoin is driven by prominent partnerships, such as the sponsorship of kickboxing competitions or music festivals. To make it easier for people without previous knowledge to enter the world of crypto currencies, the Litecoin Foundation has created an e-book covering all areas around Litecoin and Blockchain. The book is intended primarily to appeal to novices and "experienced hodlers". Furthermore, it contains a lot of information about possible integration interfaces for traders who want to integrate Litecoin as an alternative means of payment in their shop.

Lightning for Stellar network should come in Q3
The Stellar Foundation roadmap for 2019 shows that many new developments are on the agenda. However, the highest priority is the integration of Lightning for the network to improve scaling. Actually, this feature should already come in December of last year, but the release date has shifted to the third quarter of 2019. Lightning ensures that multiple transactions are collected off-chain and thus not burdened with the main chain.
