Ripple To Go Ahead With Swell 2020 Despite COVID-19, But In a Unique Way

Ripple, the US-based cross-border payment firm that oversees the distribution of the digital token XRP, has hinted at its plan to go ahead with Swell 2020, despite the lockdown initiated by the outbreak of coronavirus in the countries of the world.

Initially, Ripple was to hold the yearly Swell in London this year, but it’s taking a new dimension, as it has carefully considered making this year’s event a virtual conference.

This new development was shared by Curis Wang, the co-founder of blockchain incubator Bitrue Space, via his Twitter handle on 22nd April 2020.

Read the message he received from Ripple below:

“After careful consideration, we’ve made the decision to transition Swell Global into an exclusive online experience. Although this a unique way to connect, we are excited about the opportunity to engage with you this fall.”

Ripple’s Commitment to Fostering More Diversity and Inclusion in Blockchain

In another development, Ripple pledged partnership in she256 Coalition for Diversity, to bring further fulfillment to its commitment to fostering more diversity and inclusion in blockchain.

“Ripple is committed to fostering more diversity and inclusion in blockchain and are proud to pledge our partnership in she256 Coalition for Diversity. Help quantify the gap that exists today by taking the Future of Blockchain study here,” Ripple shared.

According to the update, she256 aims at “diagnosing challenges and devising targeted solutions requires an understanding of the problem. Help us quantify the gap that exists today, showcase the work of female pioneers, and outline how we can engage more women and underrepresented minorities in blockchain.”
