Ripple, the US-based blockchain tech has been racing in the world’s payment industry for sure foothold. In the quest to make its dreams a reality, it has recently announced the expansion to Washington DC, with an assigned office for its global regulatory team.
Purpose of Ripple’s Expansion into Washington DC
This announcement was made in a publication released on Ripple’s official website on 22nd October 2019. However, this development did not accidentally come to play without a needed purpose.
According to the cross-border payment giant, blockchain and digital asset technologies are comparable to the historic impact made by the Internet. From inception, Internet was largely criticized as much as the stern regulatory scrutiny faced with the nascent and fast-growing technologies, blockchain and digital asset.
Ripple pinpointed the potency of blockchain and digital asset technologies in terms of enhancement of global economic growth and the power they possess in engendering greater financial inclusion.
So, Ripple sees this expansion as what the blockchain technology and digital asset need at the moment, pointing that the push for the realization of the absolute potential of these fast-growing technologies by global regulatory bodies needs strategic cooperation of the industry leaders.
Going by Ripple’s update, the points stated above initiated the expansion of its regulatory team to the capital of the United States of America, Washington DC, stating that the strategic expansion is historic, as no blockchain company has ever secured GR office in D.C.
Hello, Washington D.C.! We have expanded our global regulatory team with an office right in the heart of the city. https://t.co/jjxqHVaUw1
