Update: The interview has been rescheduled for tomorrow, according to CNN's Julia Chatterley. More details here.
On Tuesday, a member of the Ripple community @SCuBaMaN_XRP posted news on his Twitter page that on September 11, the chief executive of Ripple, Mr. Brad Garlinghouse, will be giving an interview on CNN to Julia Chatterley.
In an announcement, the CNN anchor mentioned that she would be talking to Garlinghouse about a pretty obvious subject – XRP.
The community’s expectation
Members of the Ripple community took this piece of news eagerly, many trying to found out the exact time when the interview will take place. However, that information remains unclear.
Many believe that Brad Garlinghouse has a big announcement to make.
Big announcement?!?🤔🤔🤔— alamour (@AlaaMoursil) September 10, 2019
Others reckon that he is going to do regular Ripple and XRP promotion, saying about faster transactions for banks and the huge potential of Ripple and XRP.
He will be saying the same shit as 18 months ago... iov, utility, bitcoin was Napster, xrp is spotify etc... plane to US quicker to send cash blah blah blah @bgarlinghouse— Tom Rudge (@thomasrudge) September 10, 2019
Will the new debit card of MoneyGram and Visa use XRP?
Recently it was reported that the Ripple-backed MoneyGram payment service and the Visa giant have joined forces to launch a P2P debit card deposit service.
Many in the Ripple community assumed that since MoneyGram is using XRP now, after the recent accusation of the international payments provider by Ripple, the new debit card service is going to start utilizing XRP as soon as the debit card expands its area of service beyond the US.
However, there has been no official confirmation or denial on behalf of Ripple so far.
Perhaps the coming interview will shed light on this matter as well as many others.
