XRP for Prosperity: 888 XRP Giveaway Open in China

As the math-based currency phenomenon sweeps China, Ripple Labs is giving away 888 XRP to qualifying Weibo users! To participate, please visit giveaway.ripple.com/zh. An open, decentralized payment network, Ripple is the fastest and cheapest way to send money around the world. Giveaway participants will have the chance to experiment with Ripple – send, spend and trade money, as well as build businesses and new applications on top of it.

At today’s IDG Ventures’ 2013 Internet Financial Innovation Summit, Ripple Labs CEO Chris Larsen addressed the audience via video to announce the giveaway. He teed up the news with a few words about the potential of Ripple:

Just like with education and healthcare, access to financial services is a fundamental building block to how our families and countries succeed. With the changes in technology today, there’s never been a more exciting time to propel the lives of so many millions of people in China, America and across the world.

That’s why I’m so excited about the math-based currency movement. Many of you think of this movement as being about creating a new currency but really that’s the tip of the iceberg. This is about value exchange and building a value web in same way we already have an information web… This should allow businesses to operate more efficiently, boost trade tremendously, and help billions more people around the world succeed financially.

We’ve seen strong adoption associated with XRP giveaways. In the past four months, the number of Ripple Wallets have more than doubled. We’ll continue to extend giveaways to new regions as possible.
