Ripple CTO David Schwartz revealed that candidates don’t need to have any crypto or experience to work for the company
Ripple CTO Reveals What Successful Candidates Must Have
In a recent tweet, the big fintech company Ripple posted a video of some of its IT engineers talking about what it’s like to work for the company, which is building a global network for cross-border payments.
David Schwartz, the CTO of the company, has said that people often ask him how much crypto they need to have to work at Ripple.
He said that this has nothing to do with anything, so the answer here is 0. Even having worked with blockchain or cryptocurrency before is not that important.
Schwartz says that being able to quickly learn new skills and always learn new things is much more important for Ripple.
Ripple Labs began in 2012 as OpenCoin, but it changed its name a few years later.
Ripple To look into IPO After Lawsuit
This week, Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple, told CNBC at the World Economic Forum in Davos that the company is likely to look into an initial public offering (IPO) once the SEC’s lawsuit against Ripple Labs is over.
Even though the lawsuit has been going on for almost 15 months, Garlinghouse said that Ripple is ready to go public because it has been getting stronger even while the lawsuit has been going on. More and more new customers, mostly from outside the U.S., have been joining the company.
The CEO also said that he doesn’t think most cryptocurrencies will make it into the future. As the CNBC host pointed out, there are already 19,000 cryptocurrencies.
