Brad Garlinghouse’s recent interview on CNN

As U.Today reported earlier, the chief executive of Ripple Brad Garlinghouse has given a much-anticipated interview on CNN, hosted by Julia Chatterley.

In that talk, the head of Ripple addressed several hot issues regarding the company and XRP. He tackled the FUD that has been spreading around XRP and in particular, he stated that Ripple does not have any control over its price.

He also confirmed that Ripple sells large portions of XRP to banks and payment providers with a discount, however, as per him, Ripple sets restrictions to those institutional buyers prohibiting them to sell the XRP right away, so the stash of coins stays in a lockup for a certain period.

Garlinghouse explained this, saying that Ripple does not want anyone dumping XRP on the market.

According to the CNN anchor Julia Chatterley, these questions about discounts to financial institutions and lockups of XRP were among the most popular ones that viewers sent her prior to the interview.
