Hey Laszlo, I looked a ripple pay a while back when someone mentioned it in connection with Libre.fm's future donation features. The most succinct way I can think of describing it is as a web of trust for money.
While it wouldn't hurt you to sign up and let him donate to you through it you might find it a bit difficult to actually get hold of that money unless you plan on really getting in to using the site and encouraging people you know to use it. To retrieve the money you'll need to build up a chain of trust between Daniel and someone you know willing to pay you cash. It's a nice idea, but until it achieves critical mass I don't think you're going to get much out of it. If you were setting up a local economic trading system (LETS) it'd probably be very useful to build it on top of ripple pay, but for global transactions I'm not convinced. Cheers, Mike.
