Occasionally they'll use their blog to profile a new hire; this time it was Welly Scully, their new "Director of Business Development."
When answering the last question, "what do you think will be the tipping point for merchant adoption," he dropped this bomb:
Just who is Ripple Labs in discussion with? Sounds like we might find out soon... and it could be big."Once merchants realize that the network is secure and stable, and that the value proposition is viable, there will be a race to join the network.The signal will be clear when the first major merchants go live on the network. Based on the response we have received so far from some of the largest actors in the ecosystem, this event will be around the corner."
Who do you think it could be, and when Welly refers to "actors in the ecosystem," is he talking about banks, or is he talking about merchants? Please comment below!
