Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple, has encouraged the Ripple community to stay committed and strong after the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB). Garlinghouse reassured the community that Ripple is well-positioned to navigate through the current market volatility and is confident in the company’s long-term growth prospects. He urged the community to remain focused on advancing the adoption of Ripple’s products and technologies, and to stay positive in the face of any challenges. The collapse of SVB, which was a key banking partner for Ripple, has raised concerns among some members of the Ripple community, but Garlinghouse’s statement aims to reassure and inspire confidence in the company’s ability to weather any storm.
Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse has reassured investors that the company is financially stable despite the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank. This collapse and several others have affected many crypto firms, including Coinbase, Paxos, Celsius, and Circle. Garlinghouse stated that Ripple is doing enough to sustain normal operations on the network and that the company has ample cash reserves with other bank partners. The community can rest assured that their funds are safe and there will be no disruption in daily business. Furthermore, the Federal Reserve revealed that it would commit about $25 billion to ensure the regular functionality of financial institutions affected by the ongoing crisis in the crypto market. The Ripple lawsuit with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over the nature of its native coin, XRP, continues, but Garlinghouse is optimistic that the case will end soon, with June being the deadline for the verdict. Regarding XRP, a Ripple executive revealed that 2022 had been a record-breaking year for the company regarding its customer growth and business operations. At the time of writing, XRP trades at $0.3622.
