Ripple Xpring sponsors HackSC: Details
Ripple Xpring recently sponsored HackSC, a hackathon to create projects to address social justice issues, where there were four areas. Hundreds of developers participated in the hackathon. HackSC focused on citizenship, sustainability, justice, and mental health. Ripple Xpring awarded prizes to the three best teams that used Xpring tools and services to create creative ways to improve any area of social justice. The Finch team decided to pay attention to citizens’ rights by creating an intelligent agent called Voice Over ILP (VOILP) called Atticus.
Atticus allows immigrants to call during detention and receive free legal support, and it works on the basis of Ripple Interledger (ILP) and XRP Ledger. Representatives of Ripple Xpring were struck by the vision, creativity, presentation and overall performance of the Finch team, who used both Ripple Interledger (ILP) and XRP Ledger. The Decentralizedpeertopeerpaymentsystem team has worked to solve mental health problems by creating the Venmo-like platform on the Ripple XRP Ledger so that people in Central America reward each other for being good people.
Ripple Xpring has conducted several workshops to help developers learn how to best use Xpring to easily insert payments into their products. Elliot Lee, Lead Xpring API Engineer, introduced a demo and overview of Xpring tools and services. Ripple Xpring said it plans to sponsor, host and attend many more hackathons in 2020.
