The CEO of San Francisco-based payments company Ripple is sharing his crypto expertise with the Prime Minister of the country of Georgia.
At the 2022 World Economic Forum event, Georgia Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili met with Ripple’s Brad Garlinghouse to discuss blockchain technology and regulation.
“Great talks with Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse! Shared Georgia’s vision on future of blockchain & regulation.
With a business-centric environment & innovative approach, we aim to evolve as a tech & innovations hub. Shared Georgia’s story as the 1st country to bring Blockchain in public services.”

At Prime Minister Garibashvili’s side was Vice Prime Minister Levan Davitashvili. The meeting took place in Davos, Switzerland, host of the 2022 World Economic Forum.
According to local reports, the Georgia Prime Minister also made an offer to the Ripple CEO during the meeting.
“The Prime Minister offered the CEO of Ripple to open a corporate service center in Georgia and noted that Georgia has a favorable investment environment and the country has a stable location.”
Stateside, Garlinghouse and Ripple are still embroiled in a lawsuit filed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) alleging Ripple Labs issued XRP as an unregistered security.
