Back in March, Ripple impressed when they hired Cory Johnson as Chief Strategist Marketing. Johnson was for years a very popular figure in the finance and technology sectors, after founding TheStreet.com and working at CNBC and Bloomberg for Silicon Valley and the technology industry, but also as a hedge fund manager and analyst for important companies.
His experience and his wide technical and financial background have made him a perfect partner for the cryptocurrency space and Ripple Labs. As Ripple's primary marketer, Johnson focused on XRP's ability not only to change, but to destroy the entire financial sector.
He was just a guest on the Fintech Focus podcast where he talked about Ripple's future and how it will change the financial world.
Johnson said that the speed and efficiency of XRP are quite advantageous to give RXP the advantage over the competition, but it also focused on the fact that XRP is a force that does not need of Ripple to work. The decentralized nature or lack thereof has been a point of contention for many cryptic enthusiasts, but Johnson seems to ensure decentralization of heritage.
"And if Ripple were to go away, the Johnson family would be pretty sad, but XRP will continue to exist, and many other companies, many start-up bases, many more besides, are using XRP as their main technology, again , to try to find new businesses, and really, the technology for XRP is like Bitcoin two points oh it's Bitcoin, but it's faster, Bitcoin, but it does not use tons of energy, it's Bitcoin, but it's not controlled by Chinese miners But fundamentally, it is a digital blockchain asset that is used primarily for the movement of value ".
Any financial expert will tell you that the bottom line is all that matters. If Ripple and XRP can provide cheaper solutions for companies and investors wishing to transfer large amounts of money, its adoption will not be very far.
