Covid-19 and the vision of Ripple

As much as one does not want to take advantage of the recent Covid-19 pandemic, it is hard not to discuss it, and so even the CEO of Ripple, Brad Garlinghouse, expressed his vision of what is happening.

Considering the state of emergency in which the world finds itself, it has hit hard, some more and some less, all sectors indiscriminately. Even the big names of the blockchain world were not spared, Ripple being one of them.

A few days ago, the Travala team announced discounts for those who have to travel even at this time.

Even Ripple switches to smart working 

This situation has stimulated smart working, which is already operational in companies such as Bitfinex.

Even Ripple, to protect its employees, seems to have moved in this direction, in particular, to provide support to the many users who rely on their various services to transfer money, as pointed out by the CEO himself.

Ripple’s various services make it possible to use payment instruments quickly and in many countries, simplifying the management of funds or purchases for many people, which is why Garlinghouse says that Ripple certainly can’t stand idle.

The CEO then ends his tweets with words of hope for the future, even though he admits that we are currently in bad shape, especially as far as the economy is concerned.

Let’s not forget that when the emergency is over the impact on the global economy will be frightening and could change the way we look at blockchain and crypto. 

However, according to the CEO of Ripple, the markets have shown themselves to be very resilient and therefore resistant to extreme conditions like the one we are currently experiencing worldwide.
