Ripple Labs has announced the launch of ‘The Ripple Drop’, a web series which provides news from inside Ripple. It will cover information about their customers, technology, and products. The series will have releases on the first and third Monday of every month.
The show is hosted by Reinhard Cate, writer and social media marketer at Ripple. The guests featured on this iteration of the show are Catherine Coley, the head of XRP Institutional Liquidity, Asheesh Birla, the SVP of Product, and Jim Chauncey-Kelly, the Head of Talent Acquisition.
While speaking to Catherine Coley, Cate asked her about the variables involved in impacting a liquid and robust market for digital assets. She said that the components that make up the market are the speculators and the infrastructure layer, along with liquidity providers and corporate hedging. She stated:
“That’s huge in the FX [Foreign Exchange] market which allows for two-way flow to occur and it’s really kind of the fundamental difference that digital assets currently are missing.”
In his talk with Asheesh Birla, Cate spoke about Ripple’s recent partnership with Kotak Mahindra Bank. The bank in question is India’s second largest private bank and is using xCurrent for remittances. Birla stated:
“A lot of folks think of India as the the largest inward remittance corridor in the world you know which it is what a lot of folks don’t know is that India is also one of the fastest growing outward remittances in the world as well.”
He further stated that the bank could leverage xCurrent to connect with payment destinations worldwide with less friction for inward and outward remittances.
This iteration of the program also featured the Head of Talent Acquisition speaking about new talent for Ripple’s University Blockchain Research Initiative. He said that the long-term vision for success and scalability of the program is one of the factors in acquiring the talent.
