Cory Johnson Believes XRP Is The Next Generation Crypto
Earlier in the year, Ripple made headlines when they hired there new Chief Marketing Strategist, Cory Johnson. Johnson has been a highly regarded figure in the technology and financial sectors for many years now and after he found TheStreet.com and began to work at Bloomberg and CNBC covering Silicon Valley in California and the tech industry.
As reported by ZyCrypto, his experience and well-rounded background in both finance and tech which made him a perfect match for Ripple Labs and the digital currency space. Johnson is the chief marketer for Ripple and has focused on XRPâs abilities to not change and disrupt the entire financial industry.
As one of the guests on a Financial Tech podcast Johnson spoke about the future of Ripple and how the company is going to change the world.
The sheer speed and efficiency of XRP are enough to give the token an advantage according to Johnson. He also looked at the fact that the third biggest cryptocurrency doesnât actually need Ripple to function. The decentralisation is questionable has also been a point of contention for several enthusiasts of crypto.
Nevertheless, Johnson seems to be assuring to the assets decentralisation. Johnson said:
âAnd if Ripple were to go away, the Johnson family would be quite sad, but XRP would continue to exist, and many other companies, many start-up bases, many beyond that, are using XRP as a core technology, again, to try to find new businesses. And really, the technology for XRP is like Bitcoin two dot oh. Itâs Bitcoin, but itâs faster. Itâs Bitcoin, but it doesnât use tons of power. Itâs Bitcoin, but itâs not controlled by Chinese miners. But fundamentally, it is a blockchain digital asset that is used principally for the movement of value.â
If you spoke to any financial expert they would tell that in the end, all that matters is that Ripple and its token can provide cheaper solutions businesses as well investors wishing to move huge amounts of money so its adoption wouldnât be that far away.
