Ripple, the leading cross-border blockchain remittance company, has recently acquired talents from the tech giant, Google. Amir Sarhangi, who had served as vice president of products for a new messaging service on Google, was tasked by Ripple to take a position in RippleNet. The event was reported to have taken place on Friday, as stated by Reuters.
Cerberus, a Twitterati, who is a fan of blockchain and cryptocurrency, commented on the news:
"Assemble the team of the best and brightest in the world has to offer."
Another Twitter manager called DontFollowMe connected the news to the XRP market and stated:
"Hard not to be bullish when you see things like these."
However, this is not the only connection shared by Google with the cryptocurrency world. Recently, the technology leader has been seen providing subtle support to multiple projects in space, one of which is XRP.
Recently, the XRP Tip Bot app has been released and has received approval from both Google and Apple stores. This is enormous in the blockchain space as it gives way to a widespread adoption of cryptocurrencies and the underlying technology.
Regarding the cryptocurrency ban that Google had imposed at the beginning of the year, the scenario seems extremely different at the moment. After Facebook's crypto-ban elevation, Google followed in its footsteps. Currently, Google has a new set of policies updated on cryptocurrency ads: what is allowed and what is not.
Some of the areas reserved in these policies are the initial coin offerings [ICOs] and sales of cryptocurrency tokens. In addition, any ad that promotes investment advice, trading signals or broker reviews are strictly prohibited in cryptographic policies developed by Google for the blockchain space.
