Ripple enables remote work 

As reported by U.Today, Ripple became part of the mass remote working trend in order to flatten the spread of the deadly coronavirus that already has more than 470,000 confirmed cases worldwide. Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple, made it clear that the company prioritized the well-being of its team. 

With that being said, Ripple continues to support its customers during these tough times. While world economies are basically shutting down one by one to battle the virus, there is a great need for transferring money around the globe, according to Garlinghouse.
