Top attendees include Reserve Bank of India’s Former Governor, and the 7th Chief Economist at the IMF, Mr. Raghuram Rajan, Chang Heng Chee, the Ambassador at Singapore Foreign Ministry among others.
“There has been a lot of skepticism about how XRP can be used for liquidity, and as the industry continues to try to find use cases around blockchain, we have more than 20 customers using XRP for cross-border liquidity and are benefiting from that,” Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse told Forbes at this year's SWELL event.
Overall, Garlinghouse said that 2019 has been the strongest year for Ripple so far despite the underwhelming price performance of XRP.
