Blockchain funds agency Ripple has joined a consortium comprising of close to 1,000 famend United States firms and chief govt officers advocating for truthful voting throughout Tuesday’s presidential election.
Per a tweet on November 2 from Ripple, the agency’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse has joined PayPal CEO Dan Schulman, Reddit CEO Steve Huffman, and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey on the Civic Alliance. Civic Alliance is a non-partisan business coalition advocating for all Americans to have a voice within the nation’s democratic procedures. A press release on the alliance’s web site reads:
“Voting should be safe and accessible to all. Elections should be fair and transparent.”
Civic Alliance at the moment has 993 members with as many as 5 million workers. Some of the main firms within the US have joined the cause, together with PayPal, Microsoft, Deloitte, Facebook, and others. The coalition is encouraging all their workers to go out and vote as effectively as provide help at polling locations with paid time off.
Republicans and Democrats alike are cautious of violence erupting if their most well-liked candidate doesn’t win. The group is looking for “safe access to the polls for all voters” within the U.S and also “patience” as all of the votes are tallied.
Ripple becoming a member of the alliance comes as no shock contemplating its CEO Brad Garlinghouse not too long ago got here out in opposition to Coinbase’s anti-corporate activism stance.
The bitcoin community is hopeful irrespective of who wins the US presidential election. The CEO of digital asset supervisor Grayscale Investments, Barry Silbert, not too long ago noted that bitcoin would be the final beneficiary whether or not Joe Biden wins or Trump will get to keep the White House because of the sweeping cash printing that’s set to proceed.
