Moving money online is commonplace these days, and the simpler and faster the process can be, the more appealing it is. Ripple provides another option in the world of online payment solutions. It's an open source, almost free to use payment network that provides a simple and hassle-free way for anyone in the world to send money to anyone else. The Ripple API allows developers to use this functionality and integrate the payment system into other projects.
Bitpay's API allows for businesses and employees to accept BitCoin for their services and goods. Now with the addition of Newegg to it's repertoire of business affiliates, BitPay is receiving more credence as a leader in the march toward the legitimization of BitCoin as a secure digital payment system.
