Wietse Wind, the creator of the popular micropayments service, XRP TipBot finally announced the new secret feature called “Paper Accounts” that will enable users to send and receive tips without necessarily having a social media account, such as Twitter, Discord or Reddit.
During an interview with the YouTube Channel CKJ Crypto News, Wind explained the working of this new feature. He stated that a paper account can be generated by one of the existing TipBot users by using their public and private keys, similar to a paper wallet.
For instance, if one wants to tip friends, family, restaurants or any other individuals in XRP, the recipient does not need to be on social media. Here, the user can just hand a paper with a gift tip and instructions stored in it, making it convenient for the first time receiver to take their own time and unlock the tip with XRP TipBot app.
In a conversation with AMBCrypto, Wietse Wind talked the hassle-free approach of the paper accounts feature and said:
“Until now the XRP TipBot has been available for the XRP Community. With the new “Paper Accounts”, it will be as easy as handing out a sheet of paper to get someone started and tip (gift) the first XRP.
The “Paper Account”-receiver doesn’t even have to be on Twitter (or reddit/Discord).
With the “Paper Accounts” adoption outside of the XRP community may just be around the corner”
He further expressed:
“Personally, with the holidays coming up, I’m very excited to get friends and family to use the XRPTipBot.
This evening I’ll give away my first “Paper Account” in the restaurant where some old colleagues and @thisistriss (TipBot App designer), @baltazar223 (TipBot App developer) will be meeting and eating. I’m really excited.”
In the YouTube broadcast, Wind also discussed another facility provided by the new feature. He cited an event where the receiver is unwilling to unlock the tip and use the TipBot app. In these cases, TipBot will secure the funds from getting stuck by returning them to the tipper’s account if the tip is not unlocked within a month’s span.
