«Meanwhile, the promotion of Schwartz to CTO is significant because he is replacing long-time predecessor, Stefan Thomas, who created many elements of Ripple’s blockchain technology.»

No offence to Stefan but.. seriously?!

They’re making it sound like Schwartz has big shoes to fill and will have to struggle to do as well as Thomas. Which is amusing because Schwartz is a genius at this stuff. He was being sarcastic.

I think Stefan deserves a shout-out.  Ripple's flagship product xCurrent was built around interledger. And if ILP become the IoV standard, Stefan & Evan will be in history books.  IMO Stefan is an underrated genius.  They are big shoes to fill.  But if one man can step right in and not miss a beat it's D.Schwartz

No argument here, I am a huge fan of ILP and Stefan. Still think the statement above is mis-leading journalistic BS. As if he wanted to say something negative and had to think really hard to make it sound negative but not to lie.
