Ripple update: HAPPY RIPPLE JET FUEL DAY!!!
Bitcoin has its Pizza Day.
On July 10, 2015, the first significant use of XRP in a transaction – the purchase of jet fuel – took place.
850,000 XRP was used to buy a full tank of jet fuel for a trans-Atlantic flight. At the time, the fill up was worth about $7,380. Today, the same amount of XRP is worth $400,000.
The event was duly noted here on r/Ripple, but the community wasn’t what it is now, and the anniversary came and went without mention. Let’s take this opportunity to celebrate this event today and remember it for posterity!
