Ripple's XRP Gets Mentioned in US Government Document for the First Time

Making a case for XRP 

Most likely, Garlinghouse will use the stage to promote the adoption of the XRP cryptocurrency and touch upon the development of the broader cryptocurrency industry. He recently predicted that the world's biggest banks would adopt crypto the following year but a lot of coins would also disappear from the map. 

As reported by U.Today, Garlinghouse made a bold claim that 99.9 percent of all crypto trading is driven by price speculators during his interview at The Economic Club of New York that took place on Oct. 8.
