The fintech company that created XRP makes new plans to broaden its European market. The firm formerly announced a vacancy for three technical analysts of central banks to occupy its three branches in New York, San Fransisco, and the UK. Currently, the business faces some problems since SEC’s lawsuit against them.
Ever since the claim, the firm has shown plans to settle with SEC executives, proving abortive. Nonetheless, the company still plans to offer its services globally, despite its current reputation. The cryptocurrency, which is primarily used for cross-border payments, will soon expand to other parts of Europe to achieve safe and efficient payment means.
Ripple announces vacancy
The company explained through the vacancy that it needed a candidate to occupy a managing director seat, suspected to be in a branch somewhere in Europe. More information about the vacancy revealed that the managing director would actively gear efficient cross-border payments in the region. Numerous companies want to broaden their reach worldwide; that’s why institutions need new hires to achieve that effort.
Ripple envisions the area as the right market for its expansion plans and seeks to find the right person to manage those payments. London, being the country’s only European branch, would suffice on the mission to go global. The new employee would work in the London company and would give reports to a top executive, Ripple’s general manager.
The officeholder would perform numerous roles, all related to building a bigger market. The candidate will form needed collaborations with local businesses and Ripple, thereby giving the people exposure to the cryptocurrency firm.
The hire would also work with the government and other managers of Ripple and be a representative of the fintech firm. Additionally, only 15 years of experience and above in the financial technology sector can apply for the new role. Also, the candidate has to have incredible knowledge about cross-border payments and manage different teams.
Legal battles continue
Legal problems for Ripple in America is yet to be over as the company prepares for a court appearance next month. The US regulatory body, which acts as a watchdog for securities and exchanges, accused the company of selling unapproved securities to the public.
According to the agency, Ripple executives made the sales to deprive holders of their rights. Still, the executives explained that XRPs were not securities, which means they didn’t need registration before a public offering.
In Ripple’s announcement last year, the company noted that most of its volumes were coming from outside the US, meaning that the firm hopes to explore one of its strongest hold, Europe. The company revealed that the UK and Switzerland are dominant XRP holders, making it easier to get a hold of the continent.
Despite problems in the US, the company still strives to create new collaborations outside the country to achieve a global outlook. The cryptocurrency’s value keeps falling, linked to the SEC trouble, but sources claim that with Ripple’s dominance outside America, it would still survive damages that might occur.
