Official papers from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget released show Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse visited the White House for a discourse.
Steve Diep, XRP enthusiast and investor, unearthed the Visitors’ book displaying the date and time Ripple’s CEO visited Caroline Moore at the White House.
The visitors’ record shows that September 26th and October 3rd of the year 2018, were the meeting days of Brad with Caroline Moore respectively. It further showed that their meeting lasted for the better part of the day.
Even though the essence of the meetings which took place in 2018 is still concealed to the public, Cory Johnson, ex-chief marketing strategist at Ripple reveals the discourse which came up between the parties.
XRP happens to be different cryptocurrency because there’s no need for mining in XRP compared to BTC. XRP stands at the forefront, thus, making it appear catchy to members in the White House. Obviously, there’s a lot of tasks put in place as touching it, Cory says.
Prior to this time, Ripple’s Brad Garlinghouse had told the United States regulators that they adopt innovations of digital currencies.
However, the US regulators have turned deaf ears to this offer, even though China is clearly seen making advancement in matters relating to blockchain innovation and digital currency.
In July 2019, Ripple took out a full-page advert in the Wall Street Journal, encouraging US Congressmen to get themselves acquainted with digital currencies and as well create policies that will serve as security for the companies in US that already have an investment in the technology.
