Radio presenter Randi Zuckerberg, better known as the sister of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, recently posted quotes from notable figures in the crypto space with whom he interviewed on Sirius XM.
One of them was Ripple's senior vice president of product management, Asheesh Birla, who predicted that Ripple would "really take off" in the next two years.
"I think it will really take off in the next 2 years. The world order will be reorganized using blockchain technology. I think Asia will lead the pack, "he said.
Brad Garlinghouse agrees
In response to Birla's comment, Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple, tweeted that he knew what he was talking about.

It is worth noting that Garlinghouse itself does not shy away from revealing Ripple's ambitious goals. During his recent interview with CNN, he revealed that the company could expand to other niches in the industry beyond cross-border payments.
Focusing on Asia
Ripple has recently made great progress when it comes to its expansion into the Asian market that is expected to be at the forefront of the new 'world order' with its adoption of blockchain technology.
In late February, it partnered with three South Korean remittance companies before reaching a deal with Thailand-based fintech player DeeMoney earlier this week.
