Ripple CEO on Bitcoin, “I’m Not Prepared to Say Bitcoin Goes to Zero. I Still Own Bitcoin”

Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple spoke about the potential of cryptocurrencies to improve the global economic landscape at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. In a discussion panel on the future of crypto, Garlinghouse explained that there is a strong possibility that blockchain technologies will improve the conditions under which social, banking and industrial relations operate:

“There is an opportunity to fundamentally rewire how modern financial infrastructure works in the pre-funding. You have about $10 trillion pre-funded to banks around the world in order to enable cross-border payments. If you could take advantage of crypto liquidity to fund real-time payments, you could actually take that $10 trillion and use it for other purposes, which is great for society. It’s great for banking. It’s great for industry. So that’s what we’re trying to rewire. We’re lucky to now have about 200 banks that have signed up. We’ve got a long way to go”
