More about the Chat
On the topic, Larsen stated that we aren’t prepared for handling a financial crisis, and yet we are standing on the possibility of witnessing one. “10 years out on the financial crisis we still don’t have the infrastructure perhaps to prevent the next one.”
Furthermore, he stated that he firmly believes that “an efficient digital asset can really solve some of the key problems in global liquidity“. Financial groups and institutions have to invest trillions and trillions of dollars to manage the liquidity for making transactions all over the globe.
This proves to be an obstacle to the growth of the economy. Furthermore, he boldly stated that he believes that Ripple (XRP) cryptocurrency could help solve the problem with its ecosystem. Ripple provides instant payment solutions without keeping liquidity and helps financial institutions for cross-border transactions which are secure and transparent.
