Joining the XRP ecosystemOn Nov. 5, Flare Networks reported that it secured a partnership and investment with Xpring that will enable the company to bring a "Wealth of resources and partners to enhance and extend the Flare, Xpring and XRP ecosystems." The Flare Network, which has been over two years in the making, reportedly integrates the Ethereum Virtual Machine to enable public and private networks to leverage smart contracts.
"Flare's native token will be an algorithmic stablecoin created in part by burning XRP, and payments for a contract can be made and received in XRP via Interledger, which will be integrated with Flare." The Xpring team also added that Flare will use "The XRP address and encryption system to provide XRP users with a virtually seamless way of interacting with smart contracts on the Flare Network," enabling more users and developers to leverage the XRP Ledger in more use cases, such as contract settlement and app development. Cointelegraph has contacted Xpring in regards to the reported investment into Flare Network.
