We announced the creation of Arrington XRP Capital a few days ago, on November 28 2017. We were lucky to have the opportunity to do it at Coindesk’s Consensus Invest event in New York in an on stage interview with Pete Rizzo. I’m very thankful that Pete and the rest of the team at Coindesk were willing to add us to the packed agenda at the last minute.
We also had some great press coverage of the announcement. Here’s the major coverage and tweets:
