Brad Garlinghouse says Ripple’s Profitability Is Driven by XRP Sales
The CEO at Ripple blockchain technology has admitted that the sale of XRP is exactly what is driving the profitability of the company.
“We would not be profitable or cash flow positive [without selling XRP],” Brad mentioned as reported by Financial times on Friday.
Brad furthered that taking away all the company’s XRP will make Ripple less profitable.
“Well XRP is one source. I don’t know how to answer that because if you took away our software revenues, that would make us less profitable. If you took away all our XRP, that makes us less profitable. So I don’t think about it as one thing,” Brad added.
However, the statement stirred various chants on Twitter as many XRP enthusiasts claim the company is making profit at the detriment of the investor’s interest by dumping XRP on the public.
