Ripple Xpring Sponsored SLOHacks Hackathon: Details
This weekend, Ripple Xpring sponsored the SLOHacks hackathon, where 275 developers gathered at the California Institute of Cybersecurity to present projects in three different areas: financial technology, games, and cybersecurity. Five teams submitted a project to the “Best Use of Ripple Xpring” contest, dedicated to the creative use of XRP and Interledger (ILP).
The Remit team won using the Ripple Xpring SDK for XRP and the Twilio API for SMS. The cost and speed of sending money around the world is also a problem that a member of their team, a foreign student, had to face each time sending money home or receiving it. SMS is the most widely used data transfer application on the planet with more than 4 billion users worldwide, many of which do not have Internet access.
It was previously known that Coinone Transfer extends payments without borders using Ripple to 12 corridors.
