Wow, this is so forward thinking!  It makes me proud to see some of the things that the Ripple Team is putting their efforts into. Between this, XSpring, and their significant philanthropical generosity, it's hard not to believe that this company is going to change the world. Exciting stuff!

The most imminently exciting thing for me if the other unis are anything to go by is they're likely to set up validating nodes which will pretty much remove all of ripples last few...…...Hopefully.
