Maybe I missed this acquisition announcement, but It appears that Ripple has acquired TOWO Labs, a startup based in Sweden October 17th 2019 per Crunchbase. The only announcement that I could find linking TOWO Labs to Ripple prior to this was a Xpring investment that was announced by Danny Aranda on October 16th, 2019. TOWO Labs confirmed the investment with an announcement of their own via a Coil post: "Towo Labs, a Swedish startup aimed at simplifying crypto self-custody, today announced a strategic investment from Xpring, Ripple’s developer initiative to build the internet of value." "The investment will support Towo Labs’ development of hardware wallet firmware with support for all XRP Ledger (XRPL) transaction types and a trustless, non-custodial web interface to the XRP Ledger." "At the outset, Towo Labs will focus on developing hardware wallet firmware with full XRPL support for Ledger Nano S, Ledger Nano X and Trezor T — making it easier to securely sign any transaction type. All open-source code contributions will be subject to the involved repositories normal contribution guidelines. Today’s existing firmware only supports XRP payment transactions, which in some cases block further XRPL and Interledger innovation. The new firmware, however, will support the signing of cross-currency payments, trust lines, escrows, orders, payment channels, account settings and so forth." The only acquisitions that I was aware of were Logos, Strata Labs, and Algrim, all of which Ripple/Xpring publicly announced.
