Garlinghouse has a new interview with CNBC
In his brand new interview with CNBC, Garlinghouse says that he owns multiple cryptos, and expects all of them to rise together as the industry gains prominence.
“I own Bitcoin, I own Ether, I own some others. I am an absolute believer that this industry is going to continue to thrive… All boats can rise.”
The Ripple chief compares the crypto space to the rise of internet giants decades ago when many different companies serving separate use cases came out on top together.
“Yahoo could be successful and so could eBay… They’re solving different problems… There’s different use cases and different audiences and different markets. I think a lot of those parallels exist today.”
Garlinghouse also said that maximalists, or people who believe their preferred crypto should take over the entire industry, are creating a type of “fractured representation” when it comes to lobbying US lawmakers.
“The lack of coordination in Washington, D.C., amongst the crypto industry, I find to be shocking.”
