Ripple’s Top Developer Just Left. Here’s why


Recommended Posts

Matt Hamilton, the director of developer relations at Ripple, has recently announced his departure from the San Francisco-based payment firm.

In a recent blog post, Hamilton says that 2021 was a tough year for him personally due to his wife’s mental health issues. He said he left the payment firm to focus on his family after realizing that he’s been dealing with too many things at once.

Matt Hamilton noted:

“Ripple has been amazingly supportive through all this time, both on a personal and a professional level. However, despite all the support, it has become clear I am spinning too many plates.

“So I’m going to be stepping down from my role at Ripple to focus on supporting my family and helping my wife recover. This is a hard decision to make, but something I feel is necessary. Don’t worry, I’ll still be involved in the XRP Ledger community, albeit maybe to a lesser degree for a while.”

Hamilton, who had worked for tech giants such as Hewlett-Packard (HP) and IBM, joined Ripple in January 2021 to work for the expansion of the XRP ecosystem.
