San Francisco headquartered FinTech firm Ripple, which celebrated its 10th anniversary last Thursday (October 20), is bringing its annual Swell conference to London this November, and it is raising awareness of its brand by placing ads at strategic locations in London’s two financial districts.
Ripple, which uses blockchain technology to allow “global financial institutions, businesses, governments and developers to move, manage and tokenize value”, had its 10th anniversary last week. Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse said that the team celebrated the firm’s birthday at their latest All Hands meeting:
