The Ripple (CCC:XRP-USD) continues a busy conference season that begins today. Ripple Swell 2021, the network’s major event for a busy year, kicks off and investors are clamoring for information. The developers apparently don’t sweat the heat they’ve been feeling since late last year; a slew of announcements are already taking shape for a number of new products. The network shows it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Ripple sees itself as an integral part of the future of tokenized assets, and its users would be eager to agree. With the network, cross-border payments are becoming more streamlined than ever. It’s a sentiment he brings to the Swell Conference; Ripple is not only going to stand up straight, he will also push forward.
Of course, this idea also comes at a time of great adversity for the network. A Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) lawsuit has been dragging on for almost a full calendar year at this point, and if the government agency is successful, Ripple will in fact be not be part of the future of tokenized assets. The lawsuit, in which the SEC claims Ripple led an unregistered securities bid for over $ 1 billion, turns into a game of who can leave their hand on one hot stove longer than the other. The two organs continue to alternate punches and punches on each other, most recently the SEC taking over.
So when Ripple decides to host this massive two-day event, there’s a lot of optimism implied. Ripple makes a solid plan for each time they go through this turmoil. They do not seem at all out of step with the constant news on this subject that is enveloping their roadmap. Rather, this event is a kind of celebration of the network’s ability to weather the storm.
Ripple Swell 2021 opens today with CEO Brad Garlinghouse’s speech
Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse launched two busy days earlier for Ripple Bulls with his opening speech. In it, he unveiled the theme of the two-day conference: pushing the boundaries. Hailing the network’s success in breaking down walls and building bridges through connectivity, bullish introduction boosts great optimism from Ripple fans on social networks.
In addition to Garlinghouse, a number of Ripple executives take the stage throughout the day. These leaders, in addition to Garlinghouse’s speech, discuss the broader implications of an interconnected world through Ripple; the event also promises several presentations and reveals, as the Swell art gallery app. In addition to Ripple employees, viewers will see signs and Q&A featuring people like FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried, Compound (CCC:COMP-USD) founder Robert Leshner and even a representative of the Bhutan Monetary Authority, a nation that is asking Ripple to help him create his own central bank digital currency.
