The XRP community proved consistency does actually work when a bunch of requests sent to Skrill ended successfully with XRP being added to the payment platform.
Known XRP advocates such as Tiffany Hayden known by her Twitter handle @haydentiff pushed for Skrill to add XRP.
'They decided to add $XRP following requests from the holders of the second largest cryptocurrency on the market. Among the appeals was @haydentiff, who is considered to be one of the most active XRP advocates'

The CEO of the Skrill, NETELLER and Income Access of the parent company Paysafe Group, Lorenzo Pellegrino is a Cryptocurrency supporter.
Pellegrino believes platforms like Skrill will help connect the dots between Cryptocurrencies and traditional money in an efficient and user-friendly manner. He even hinted that Skrill could develop a Cryptocurrency exchange given the number of opportunities and benefits Cryptocurrencies have.
Skrill is recognized to be a secure and efficient payment system, and thus adding XRP to its platform gives XRP an edge to gain trustability.
XRP as of now has held its ground as the second-ranked Cryptocurrency. The market cap of XRP is $14,385,100,234 which has a vast difference compared to third-placed Ethereum which has a market cap of $11,496,260,988.
However, Skrill’s addition of XRP still has not influenced the price much, as XRP at the time of writing is $0.357765. It has not been able to surpass the barrier of $0.40.
One thing to learn by Skrill adding XRP is a community voice of a Blockchain and Cryptocurrency project can go a long way if it involves passionate and consistent requests.
