Wietse Wind, founder of XRPL Labsβ€”the software studio behind the development of XRP Ledger solutionsβ€”has shared details of the process of Spark token distribution among XRP holders. He also released an instrument required for this process.

How to receive Spark tokens?

According to Mr. Wind, the process will consist of three steps. First, the XRP holder will be asked to create an account for the Flare Network. Every account will have a public address (typically "0x.."-like) and a private key. The private key and address can already be generated.

Then, users of XRP Ledger need to prove account ownership by signing a reference. This reference will be stored on XRP Ledger and will indicate the Flare network account that belongs to this or that user.

Once the Flare network is ready, its team will read all XRP Ledger accounts and distribute Spark tokens 1:1 to Spark wallets associated with XRPL accounts.

However, the accurate timeline for this "utility fork" has not yet been announced. The Flare network team will disclose it.

First listing for Spark tokens

To make these steps seamless for users of the XUMM non-custodial XRPL-based exchange service and the XRP Toolkit environment for Ledger Nano, Mr. Wind released a tool. According to him, this tool will be helpful for the first stages of the transition:

Using my tool you will be guided through the process of storing a reference on your XRP ledger account to your (probably: to be generated) account on the Flare network.

The tool is active even though the Flare network is not yet launched. Mr. Wind asked his followers to use only official XUMM and XRP Toolkits instruments and never enter secret information anywhere.

Also, the name of the first exchange to support the upcoming "utility fork" of XRP has been unveiled. Bitrue will support distribution of Spark tokens to all XRP holders onboarded on this wallet.

As covered by CryptoComes recently, Flare network's team plans to implement smart contract capability into the XRP network with its "utility fork."
