XRPL Labs announced that the XUMM digital payment application, which was was initially slated for release on the XRP ledger, will be also delivered on the CasinoCoin ledger.
Announcing the same, XRPL developer, Wietse Wind tweeted,
“Announcement: we will launch XUMM wallet & platform for the CasinoCoin blockchain too. We will stay primarily focussed on XRP ledger & XRPL ecosystem development, but we’ll publish XUMM for CSC as well…”
In the official blog post, Wind stated,
“Their motivation to fork instead of build on the XRP ledger source code is one I can respect: they are adding use case supporting on-ledger features to the source code. I can also really respect and appreciate their team expanding their project in a solid, bootstrapped manner.”
CasinoCoin is essentially a fork of a previous version of the XRP Ledger source code. The developer noted that the “XUMM app and underlying platform for singing requests can add a lot of value to both the ledgers”. According to the official release, the XRPL team reached out to the CasinoCoin team and offered them a branded fork of its XUMM project.
Following the development, John Caldwell, Director of Advocacy for the Foundation stated,
“We are always looking for ways to improve our product, and working with the innovative and forward-thinking XRPL Labs to deliver XUMM on the CasinoCoin ledger is a hugely exciting development for us. That they have seen the potential in our project is testament to the hard work put in by both our own development team and our wider community.”
The banking application was recently in the news after the developer revealed that the project was ready for private beta-testing. As revealed earlier, the project was available to a “small group of skilled developers, with plenty of XRPL experience and experience with calling API’s, receiving webhooks & connecting to websockets”.
