Recently, RippleLabs executive Brad Garlinghouse stated to CNBC during an interview, that RippleLabs has a “very strong balance sheet.” Garlinghouse also mentioned Ripple’s possible participation in M&A deals. Ripple will be the buyer. Garlinghouse stated that “We are now at a stage in growth where I believe we’re more likely than the seller to buy.” Garlinghouse also stated that he anticipates a rise in M&A in blockchain.
