In such a dynamic industry, with different sources of information, announcements, changes, and interesting thoughts being shared everywhere, investors can find value by following thoughtful leaders and influential personalities from their favorite cryptocurrencies.
With that in mind, Finbold asked Google Bard: “Who are the most influential XRP personalities to follow.” Here are the XRP personalities recommended by the Artificial Intelligence (AI):
- Brad Garlinghouse: The CEO of Ripple, Garlinghouse is a strong advocate for XRP and has been instrumental in its development and adoption. He is also a frequent speaker at industry events and has written extensively about XRP.
- Chris Larsen: The co-founder of Ripple, Larsen is also a major shareholder in XRP. He is a vocal supporter of the cryptocurrency and has been involved in several high-profile legal battles over its use.
- Jed McCaleb: Another co-founder of Ripple, McCaleb is the creator of the XRP Ledger. He is no longer involved with Ripple, but he remains a major shareholder in XRP. McCaleb is also the creator of the Mt. Gox exchange.
- David Schwartz: The chief technology officer of Ripple, Schwartz is responsible for the development of the XRP Ledger. He is a frequent speaker at industry events and has written extensively about XRP technology.
- Stefan Thomas: The former chief security officer of Ripple, Thomas is now the CEO of Coil, a company that provides micropayments for content creators. He is a strong advocate for the use of XRP to power micropayments.
Garlinghouse is the most followed of the above on X (formerly Twitter), with over 752,400 followers. Schwartz is the second most followed with over 463,100 followers and Larsen has over 157,200 followers. Both McCaleb and Thomas have between 50 to 60 thousand accounts following theirs.
Interestingly, the AI mostly recognizes Ripple executives and former executives as the most influential personalities in the XRP ecosystem, but investors can also closely follow this crypto development with other sources such as Finbold’s Ripple v. SEC weekly case update.
Notably, Bard does not mention James K. Filan (@FilanLaw, 167,100 followers) and Stuart Alderoty (@s_alderoty, 138,600 followers), who all played an integral part in the Ripple v. SEC case for all these years.
Although there is value in following influential personalities, followers must learn how to filter useful information and do their own diligence while investing in such a competitive market, or making technical decisions in this vast open-source ecosystem. Therefore, Google Bard also recommended investors visit the XRP Chat, an online forum for the XRP community.
