6 things we learned listening to Ripple’s CEO
What you need to know
Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple, recently sat down with Anthony "Pomp" Pompliano, co-founder and partner at Morgan Creek Capital, for an instalment of his Off The Chain podcast covering all things Ripple and XRP-related.
The two spoke about what Ripple does, the three components of RippleNet: xCurrent, xRapid, and xVia, the XRP ledger, the threat crypto poses to national sovereignty, whether XRP is a security, and the origin of the “XRP army”, among other things.
Why it's important
Before joining Ripple, Garlinghouse worked for a month as an Uber driver. It was an inbound recruiting call from a recruiter that he knew who thought he’d be a good fit at Ripple because he came from outside of the payments system. He eventually joined in 2015 as COO.
