Ripple’s CEO is optimistic about the crypto’s recovery from the FTX collapse.

Ripple Labs CEO Brad Garlinghouse shared his thoughts Wednesday on the recovery of the crypto industry after the collapse of FTX at Ripple Swell, an annual conference hosted by Ripple. FTX filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last week.

Reiterating what he said on stage at the conference, Garlinghouse tweeted:

I firmly believe that crypto will be stronger because of this if we continue to focus on transparency and trust. Ripple has been and will continue to be the leader in this area.

With all that has happened over the past few weeks (and during the ups and downs of this year), it seems even more imperative that we came together in person to have honest conversations about solving real-world problems with crypto and blockchain“, he wrote in a follow-up tweet.
