Ledger Relay Messaging

The Ledger Relay Messaging (LRM) feature in TextRP introduces a method for messaging securely across the XRPL. This section provides a detailed overview of the LRM algorithm, its purpose, and functionality, particularly in handling scenarios where the recipient has not yet onboarded to the TextRP platform.

Purpose of LRM: LRM in TextRP aims to enhance inclusivity and connectivity. It allows users to send messages to any XRP wallet address, extending communication capabilities beyond the confines of app users.


  1. Messaging Non-Onboarded Users: When a TextRP user sends a message to an XRPL wallet address not registered with TextRP, LRM steps in.

  2. Message Storage: The message is securely stored within TextRP's infrastructure, awaiting recipient onboarding.

  3. Notification via XRPL: LRM sends a microtransaction to the recipient's wallet address. This transaction includes a memo field, which carries a notification about the pending message.

  4. Recipient Onboarding: If the recipient visits TextRP, they seamlessly onboard via XRP wallet confirmation and have access the stored message.

LRM Algorithm Steps:

  1. User Initiates Message: A TextRP user composes a message and sends it to an XRPL wallet address.

  2. Check Recipient Status: TextRP checks if the recipient wallet address is associated with an existing user.

  3. If the recipient is onboarded, the message is handled via the Matrix protocol.

  4. LRM Activation for Non-Onboarded Recipients: If the recipient is not on TextRP, LRM securely stores the message and triggers a microtransaction with a message notification.

  5. Recipient Receives Notification: The recipient sees the transaction and memo in their XRPL wallet, alerting them of a pending message.

  6. Accessing Messages Post-Onboarding: If the recipient joins TextRP and links their wallet, they can access all messages sent to them while they were non-onboarded.

This innovative approach ensures that no message is lost due to the recipient's absence from the platform and fosters a more inclusive communication environment.
