Xpring Now Supports Interledger STREAM

Payments , E-Wallets

In December, we announced the launch of xpring.io, a developer site that includes a wallet, tools, services, and documentation that help developers enable payments in their products and apps. 

Xpring Wallet

Today, the Xpring Wallet now supports Interledger Protocol (ILP) STREAM, which further enables developers to insert streaming payments using Testnet (fake money) into their products and applications.

Recall that ILP uses a two-phase commit to generate and fulfill packet conditions of money across different networks. 

The Streaming Transport for the Realtime Exchange of Assets and Messages, or STREAM, is a transport protocol, like TCP for the internet, that sits on top of ILP, which uses a shared secret to authenticate and encrypt multiple packets between a client and server. 

In that sense, STREAM enables sending money and data in both directions between the two endpoints and automatically determines how much money and data can be sent in each ILP packet.

In addition to streaming payments, the Xpring Wallet allows developers to log in using GitHub, manage addresses, send and receive XRP over ILP Testnet (fake money).

Xpring SDK

The Xpring SDK now supports the aforementioned ILP STREAM on Testnet (fake money) and allows developers to check transaction history across the XRP Ledger.

The Xpring SDK also welcomes Rust and Ruby variants to the family of language bindings that already includes JavaScript, Java, Swift, Python and Go. Xpring has committed to officially supporting Xpring SDK in JavaScript, Java and Swift, whereas the Python, Go, Rust and Ruby variants are supported by developers in the community. 

XRP Ledger Wallet Server 

The XRP Ledger Wallet Server is a newly proposed versatile configuration for rippled, a C++ implementation of the XRP Ledger, specifically designed for wallet developers to connect to a network of peers, submit transactions to the XRP Ledger, access ledger history, and participate in the consensus process as a validator.

XRP Ledger

The latest XRP Ledger stable version 1.5.0 was made available to developers on XRP Testnet and Mainnet, with support for gRPC in rippled, improved support for StatsD, decentralized domain verification, and API versioning.

Updated versions of the ripple-lib TypeScript/JavaScript libraries are now available.

A Node-based CLI for XRP Ledger was also made available to developers on XRP Testnet.

Xpring has proposed a new XRP Ledger privacy standard called Blinded Destination Tags whereby source and destination tags are mutated in such a way that it is meaningful only to the sender and the receiver of a transaction but appears random to any third parties. We invite the community to review and comment on the proposal via GitHub. 


Xpring now supports ILP Java Connectors on Mainnet.

This March release represents our continued commitment to shipping new updates every quarter, and building an open platform for payments that developers love. 

We look forward to working with more developers as we continue to grow the platform to meet the payment needs of all developers worldwide.
