It's a small crypto world. Food for thought..

6 of the top 10 coins have close ties to Ripple.

1. Bitcoin: Stephan Thomas - previous CTO of Ripple. Creator of BitcoinJS - https://github.com/bitcoinjs/bitcoinjs-lib - Still a popular and maintained repo

2. Ether: Vitalik slept on Stephans couch and hung around Ripple during its inception (visa issues restricted him from working at Ripple at the time) He then went off to start Ether

3. XRP: obviously..

4: Stellar: We all know Jed..

5: Tron: Justin Sun - 2013 to 2016 and before he started Tron, Justin was the Chief Representative and Adviser

6: Binance: CZ + Mike Arrington (XRP Arrington Capitol) + Ripple SVP Ethan Beard very smiley together about something cooking in the famous Lichtenstein shot - http://arringtonxrpcapital.com/2018/08/28/binance-ceo-changpeng-zhao-is-the-real-deal/

 

So there's that, 60% have very close connections with Ripple. Missing anything?

7. BCH - Roger Ver bought a large stack of XRP in the early days and that was part of the Fincen action against Ripple due to KYC failure.

What? How do you know this?

8. The guy who did the NY bitlicense now works for Ripple (pretty sure)

It's public knowledge. I thought most people knew this?

28. In addition to XRP II’s lack of an effective AML program, XRP II also engaged in a
series of transactions for which it either failed to file, or untimely filed, suspicious
activity reports. For example:


a) On September 30, 2013, XRP II negotiated an approximately $250,000.00
transaction by email for a sale of XRP virtual currency with a third-party
individual. XRP II provided that individual with a “know your customer”
(“KYC”) form and asked that it be returned along with appropriate identification
in order to move forward with the transaction. The individual replied that another
source would provide the XRP virtual currency and did not “require anywhere
near as much paperwork” and essentially threatened to go elsewhere. Within
hours, XRP II agreed by email to dispense with its KYC requirement and move
forward with the transaction. Open source information indicates that this
individual, an investor in Ripple Labs, has a prior three-count federal felony
conviction for dealing in, mailing, and storing explosive devices and had been
sentenced to prison, see United States v. Roger Ver, CR 1-20127-JF (N.D. Cal.
2002);

Jed McCaleb built Mt. Gox, without which there mightn't be a global crypto market like there is today, although now Gox is largely only remembered for the crash, there was a time when it was the most trusted place as far as trading goes, and it led to much pumping and FOMO that really kick started the profiteering scene.

No wonder the crypto world is small: it gives a chance to create whatever you want. If you don't like smth at your current company, just take the best of its technology and open your own project!
