MoneyMessage is the the AddIn  for Microsoft Outlook. The official page of the plugin says, “MoneyMessage is an AddIn for Microsoft Outlook which allows you to append money in form of XRP (Cryptocurrency) and send it to any mail receiver.

MoneyMessage has a strong focus on applications that simplify day-to-day work. People should not have to worry about technical implementations.”

A lot of you have been asking for this addition and going to back to our promise of adding the top 20 cryptocurrencies, it was only a matter of time until we completed the Top 3 cryptocurrencies by market cap with newly integrated XRP.”
