Cory Johnson, Ripples of new chief market strategist for the last eight months, withis a very interesting Interview. However, he said that the U.S. government is open to under Trump very positive about Ripple and XRP. As Johnson explained, there are regular discussions between the Ripple and the regulatory authorities, as well as with politicians.
His role as chief market strategist, was the Public abouteducate. When he took office eight months ago, his new Job, he met “on shit tons of FUD” surrounding the company, and the crypto-currency, XRP. On one side, tilt the Public, the company Ripple and the XRP-Token equivalent. On the other hand, would be the very often misrepresented, just because Ripple 60 percent of the supply of XRP.
Independent of Ripple, could there but a great success. To theand on the question of how long it takes for big banks use the product, he says (freely translated):
We have definitely already large banks on the platform: Standard Chartered; Santander, the largest Bank in Spain, Itaú[Unibanco, which is the largest Bank in Brazil (note: the banks belong to the RippleNet). But if you are traveling in Asia or in the Middle East, one sees on every corner, changing companies. This is due to the fact that banks are the type of how money moves in these countries – it is moved by companies that make Transfers. What we see are lots and lots of smaller companies – those from whom I have heard never before, I began by registering and using our Software. It will initially not be large, established players.
As an answer to the question of what the White house and the Trump government thinks about Ripple, explained Johnson:
I was really amazed at the openness. Secondly, I was surprised about the intelligent questions, sometimes even difficult questions. Clearly, there is a lot of homework. In particular, the White house seems to be thinking about what it means that 80 percent of Bitcoin mining in China and a large part of the Ether-mining takes place in China. If you look at the XRP, there is no Mining, so XRP is from the point of view of the foreign control, or from the point of view of the environment is a whole different thing. And in conversations we have had with the administration, they seem to understand this and think that this might be important.
What relates to Ripples contacts in the government and how the discussion came, refused Johnson to make more accurate versions. However, he revealed that Ripple itself is well connected in policy circles well:
I’m Episcopalian, and the joke is that we don’t talk about God or money, but we have a lot of both. So I will not say, with whom we have spoken. But we are in regular discussions in Washington, and we meet both regulatory authorities as well as with politicians. We have a whole Team dedicated to this task, not only in the United States, but worldwide. Our regulatory team, you jump in the aircraft, as you would burn your pants.
On the question of what is his least favorite question, which allows him to provide journalists, called Johnson the question according to the securities classification of XRP by the American Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). He believes that it is not unlikely that Ripple never receives a classification of the XRP Tokens:
And I think it is possible that the answer never comes. I don’t know if the SEC will be able to comment on every single crypto currency or digital Asset, and to make a decision about it. I don’t know if you like what have you made with Bitcoin and Ether. I would guess that a managing authority does not want to take over the regulation of a completely new part of the world, if no one has asked you, and no one will want to increase your Budget for it.
