With all the media attention on the shortage of hospital beds and medical supplies, it’s not often that you hear an uplifting headline. Well, crypto community, chin up. Ripple Labs Chairman Chris Larsen has made a full recovery from COVID-19. And he’s encouraging others who have to donate their blood.


Chris Larsen Makes a ‘Full Recovery’

Posting on his Twitter last night, Larsen thanked everyone on the front lines who had helped him recover. He also asked others who had recovered to consider donating their blood too. It seems that recovered patients could help those who are fighting the virus as their blood now contains antibodies.

His announcement provoked a flurry of response and–for once–for Crypto Twitter, almost all of solidarity. After all, whatever your stance on Ripple Labs or XRP, we’re all in together when it comes to fighting COVID-19.

One o


f the first people to reply was Tron’s founder Justin Sun. He simply said:

Stay strong, stay safe

Having a high-profile member of the crypto community talking about the disease brings it home to many. Tom Hanks may have made it real for the general public but as far as we know, the Ripple Labs exec Chairman is the first major crypto personality to recover from COVID-19.

Lots in the Pipeline for Ripple Labs

As some of his followers pointed out, it’s just as well Larsen has made a full recovery. There is still so much to do when it comes to Ripple Labs. And the company continues to forge new partnerships using its RippleNet technology to speed up remittances and bank transfers around the world.

The latest of such have been in the Southeast Asian market. Ripple Labs recently teamed up with Thai fintech DeeMoney and Thailand’s oldest bank SCB. Well done, Chris for making a full recovery, now, as one follower said:

Happy that you made it out so well Chris. Now launch the rocket ship
