Meanwhile, XRP can now be sent in a much easier way than it used to be through human-readable addresses. The XUMM wallet developed by XRPL Labs has scored a strategic partnership with FIO Protocol. The outcome of this collaboration is an integration of FIO Send with the XUMM wallet, which will allow users of the wallet to send XRP to human-readable addresses, giving up the use of bulky and awkward auto-generated addresses.
This means that, as of January 11, users will be able to choose unique ways to send XRP on the FIO Protocol website. The procedure is free of charge.
