Ripple Poaches Senior Developer from Google to Head RippleNet

Ripple has successfully convinced a high ranking senior developer from Google to join its ship and become the Vice president of Products.
According to Reuters, Amir Sarhangi who joined Google in 2015 after his impressive startup was bought by the giant company, has left Google to join Ripple’s board after being courted for a while.
Sarhangi shot into the global scene after his ingenious product, Jibe Mobile garnered interest from major companies across the world. Jibe Mobile was built on a unique technology and architecture popularly referred to as the “Rich Communication System (RCS),“ an intricate algorithm founded by the experienced developer. Amir designed Jibe Mobile to be used in wireless carriers, and its underlying technology, RCS, is widely considered as the successor to the ubiquitous SMS, as it outperforms the current form of text messages with its simplicity, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.
RCS is yet to see mainstream adoption though given Apple’s almost non-flexible approach to sharing its services and Samsung not taking to the technology yet; where the two aforementioned mobile providers together control the dominant market share in the industry. This has not stopped Ripple from poaching Amir from Google’s Messaging Service though. to head its payment network, RippleNet.
2018 has been a busy year for Ripple Inc overall, and has been far from quiet for the San-Francisco based company. XRP still maintains its third-place crypto ranking by market capitalization, amidst the negative volatility of the crypto market. The recent development is only one of the many deliberate calls that the company has made this year as it determinedly pushes for mainstream implementation. Just recently, Ripple released an official report declaring the amount of revenues it had made over the course of the year. The company revealed it had sold $163.33 million worth of XRP in the third quarter of 2018 alone, a figure above twice the $73 million it made in the second quarter.
While other parties are fussing over the bearish nature of this year’s cryptocurrency market, Ripple seems determined to cruise through the storm with medals to show instead rather than scars.
