Ripple is pushing to bring the XRP ledger into the world of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).
The San Francisco startup is looking to hire a senior director of central bank liabilities, according to a new job listing.
“Ripple is seeking a proven leader to lead our strategy, partnerships and projects with central banks around the world, with the initial goal of supporting their Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) initiatives on XRP Ledger.
In this role, you will define and lead Ripple’s strategy with central banks, build relationships with and educate central banks around the world, and secure and manage partnerships with central banks to build and deploy projects. “
Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse recently said central banks may consider using the XRP ledger to issue stablecoins. He also said that XRP could be used as a bridge asset to trade digital forms of fiat.
The new recruit will focus on developing strategies to integrate Ripple’s products into the emerging CBDC market and showcase various ways in which banks can use the XRP ledger.
Ripple says he wants to partner with CBDC projects and manage a “target list and pipeline of banks and projects and drive the transaction process from start to finish.”
