In summer this year, the Bank of America filed a patent for a money wiring blockchain-based system titled ‘Ripple’. However, the same name blockchain technology from the company run by Brad Garlinghouse or XRP asset were not mentioned in it.

Earlier today, an XRP investor @digitalassetbuy retweeted a post that bears a screenshot of a job posting made by Bank of America.

The BOA seeks to fill the position of a Treasury Product Manager. The posting also mentions a ‘Ripple’ project and that managing it will be part of the successful applicants’ job duties.

The salary in discussion totals $99,200 per year.

Many in the XRP community took the news quite enthusiastically, apparently, believing that it is somehow actually connected with the ‘real’ Ripple and XRP.

The LinkedIn page for this vacancy, however, says the job position is no longer active.
