XRP Account Generator
#!/usr/bin/ruby
#
# Written by Dev Null Productions <devnullproductions@gmail.com>
#
# Small script to generate new XRPL account as described in the following document:
# https://developers.ripple.com/accounts.html
#
# Simply run it with:
# ruby xag.rb
#
# Output:
# Account: rBfgMVusEncfmtgMg6VZeFEWnZNvaP1j3h
# Public Key: 024D462BEA18564079FDDD32B06726716B62E08A7656DF3D1E1596BB06BC2B58BC
# Private Key: 298C84B55ADACB4D7889FC4A8E38CF64919EE7BB5D27825A8C6987733902C34D
#
# Note: This will just create the credentials for a new account (public & private key, account id).
# The account will not be activated on the XRP Ledger until a payment of the minimum account
# reserve is sent to the account.
