Roblox, the popular online game platform boasting over 200 million monthly active users, has officially integrated XRP as a payment method. This significant development was unveiled in an announcement by BitPay on X (formerly Twitter) on October 17.

Seamless In-Game Transactions with XRP

XRP is now a supported payment option through Xsolla, the platform responsible for managing in-game payments within the Roblox universe. Partnering with BitPay, a trusted ally in establishing smooth connections with crypto wallets, this integration promises to revolutionize the way users engage in transactions.

Accessible across all major platforms, including Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, Roblox boasts an impressive 65.5 million daily active users. Notably, 44% of this user base is under the age of 13. The platform witnessed a staggering $773 million in in-game purchases during the first quarter of 2023. This further showcases the immense potential of this collaboration.

Xsolla’s Proactive Stance on Crypto Integration

Xsolla has been at the forefront of efforts to incorporate cryptocurrencies into its payment ecosystem. This journey began in August 2022, with strategic partnerships with Coinchange Financial and TradeZing, leading to the development of a nonfungible tokens payment solution. Fast forward to August 2023, Xsolla joined forces with Crypto.com, integrating the latter’s checkout solution into Xsolla’s Pay Station platform.

A Pioneering Partnership with BitPay

The history between Xsolla and BitPay dates back to 2014 when the service first embraced Bitcoin payments. Over the years, the partnership has evolved, reaching new milestones.

Notably, in September 2023, BitPay and Xsolla introduced PayPal USD payments for merchants and consumers. This further solidified their commitment to advancing payment options.
