The XRPTipBot allows users to send and receive XRP, and has already been integrated into Outlook, Gmail, Twitter, and Reddit. It was recently revealed that the XRPTipBot is being considered for integration into Skype.
The banking license would be accompanied by KYC and AML features that would make expansion for the product easier, at least as far as persuading regulatory authorities to allow operations is concerned. A successful application for the license would allow XRPL Labs to offer remittance services in the XRP token. A full banking license would allow for a greatly increased scale of operations.
