More about the Talk
Brad further stated this. “It’s about the opportunity to be a builder — to partner with industry. It will let enable something that hasn’t yet been seen: the dawn of another era in globalization.”
He talked about the shipping containers that eased up the moving of goods through the world in 1956. He also considers the Internet as the same example, introduced in 90s. Furthermore, the internet has made the exchange of data and information very effective and efficient.
Furthermore, he talked about value, and how moving value takes a hefty fee and without any transparency and certainty. Obstacles in the global financial systems stop money from becoming interoperable by posing time, transactional and transparency errors. Furthermore, he added onto this: “it’s the segments of the population who are taxed the most by that $1.6 trillion who can least afford it.”
Blockchain could be the solution to this problem. Decentralization makes this a giant step into building an open financial world for moving value across. Brad urged that Ripple is better because of its real-life application with its decentralized technology.
Finally, Garlinghouse stated: “Too many companies have a peanut butter problem. They’ve spread themselves very thin, working on lots of different initiatives.”
