Valued XRP community member @xrp_stuart posted two interesting video clips this morning of Ripple’s Asheesh Birla speaking at the Milken Institute Global Conference. The first video clip we see here is Asheesh Birla confirming that Ripple has visited Uber, AirBnb, and Google as well as ‘others’ (Most likely referring to big tech companies).
Notice how Asheesh Birla also mentions Amazon again. This isn’t the first time Ripple has name dropped both Amazon, Uber, and Airbnb as you can see in this screenshot from a Korea Ripple Conference.
Considering that nearly 50% of all RippleNet clients are still not publicly announced I would say that it would be fair to speculate that these names could be some of the unannounced Ripple clients.
In the second video clip he talks about how Japan, Singapore, and Thailand are leading the way with blockchain adoption, coincidentally we wrote an article yesterday about banks in Asia using XRP according to Yoshitaka Kitao’s (SBI CEO) recent statements. Then he follows up by saying that mega-banks have been adopting blockchain, most likely Ripple’s tech, with XRP usage to follow when the liquidity is there for the most widely used corridors.
Finally, he states that if regulation becomes clear we will see rapid adoption of blockchain technology, which lets us know that these massive institutions that Ripple are working with are waiting for proper regulatory infrastructure to use digital assets. Essentially, established regulation=the floodgates open for RippleNet adoption.
