Apple Just Added Ripple (XRP) to iOS Stocks Application, Propy to Accept XRP as well

Published

Ripple

For many days there have been lively implications that Ripple is soon to partner up with Apple Inc, one of the biggest giants in the tech industry, which could possibly sky-rocket Ripple. All XRP holders and enthusiasts will be happy to know that, in a way, the popularly talked-about partnership has indeed come to life once again after having Apple integrating Ripple’s Interledger technology more than a month ago. Apparently, Apple decided to add XRP to their application for iOS especially designed for tracking stocks and stock exchanges. Prior to this news, it was announced that Ripple just got accepted by Propy Inc, which has added XRP as one of the available payment options for their users.

Apple Adds Ripple

Although Apple Inc. didn’t add Ripple as a payment method for all products in Apple Store, Ripple still managed to acquire a piece of the tech magnum, as Apple Inc. decided to add XRP to one of their applications.

Apparently, Ripple has just become a part of Apple family once again, as Apple added XRP as a payment method for their iOS Stocks App.

iOS Stocks is an application available in Apple store that allows users to track stocks as well as enabling stock exchanges, and as of today, Ripple has become one of the payment methods available on this application.

That is how after using the XRP ledger for updating Apple Pay, one of the first mobile payment applications, back in April, which brought into a question whether Apple will be getting back for XRP for yet another project, which occurred only a month later with the latest addition of XRP to the iOS Stocks app.

XRP has been added to the mentioned application by Apple alongside with 10 trading pairs, among which users are able to find EUR, USD and BTC alongside with JPY, CAD, GBP, ETH, and INR.

Hopefully, during the next month, Apple will find yet another use for Ripple, XRP and the technology behind this digital asset.

Propy Adds Ripple

Alongside with being added by Apple to their application iOS Stocks, Propy Inc, a prominent service that helps their users find a great property in the area of Silicon Valley, which is said to be offering the last big pieces of property that are available in this area.

The mentioned properties could have been purchased in BTC and ETH by far, as Propy previously added the two best cryptos in accordance with the global coin ranking list, and now the team behind this service has gone forward with adding XRP as well.

That means that XRP will now be available for Propy users, alongside with Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Ripple tweeted about this event, stating that the team behind XRP is happy to announce that Propy users will now be able to purchase their property with XRP units as of today.

It seems that this “global real-time settlement” is constantly under the spotlight of great news, especially when it comes to mass adoption.

How is Ripple doing at the Current Moment?

Although Ripple has been down by almost -2% only 8 hours prior to the time of this writing, we can see XRP rising up against the dollar at this moment while trading in the green.

You are probably presuming that XRP went up thanks to the latest announcement of having XRP being added by Apple and Propy to their applications for stocks and property trading; however, the latest rise in its price is actually a consequence of a revamped market.

Apparently, after having the majority of currencies trading on shaky legs for days, trading back and forth in the red then back in the green, we can now witness a smooth rebound as the market is trading in the green while the majority of currencies are going up against the dollar.

Whichever the case, Ripple has brought us great news during the course of a pretty brief time, so besides thriving in mass adoption, we can see it slowly rising back up against the dollar by 1.97%.

In addition to trading in the green against this fiat currency, XRP is also going up in oppose to BTC by 1.32%.

Following the latest change in the market, XRP can now be traded at the price of 0.62$ per one unit, hopefully heading closer to its record price of 3.65$ per one unit thanks to the Apple and Propy adoption of XRP.
