Ripple Exceutive Joins Algorand Foundation


Devan Moorthy, former senior manager of business development (APAC) at Ripple, has moved to join the Algorand Foundation. The announcement by the Algorand Foundation CEO reads: “Wow am I excited to announce that Devan Moorthy has just joined the AlgoFoundation as Head of Ecosystem Access. He will wake up every morning worried about whether the ALGO and ASAs are listed on exchanges and in wallets, etc. He comes from Ripple. I’m sorry, Ripple.”

As reported by U.Today, a former Cardano technical contributor, John Alan Woods, has also moved to join the Algorand foundation as its CTO. Cardano creator Charles Hoskinson praised the Algorand community, saying, “Algorand is an excellent project with exceptional people,” while responding to the news of Alan Woods’ move.

In late July, former Algorand CEO Steven Kokinos announced his resignation to pursue “other interests,” but he would remain as a senior adviser until mid-2023. Algorand thus promoted Chief Operating Officer W. Sean Ford to the interim CEO afterward. Ford, who joined Algorand in 2018, had overseen go-to-market execution and operations.


Ripple recognized as one of fastest-growing firms

Ripple has been recognized as one of the fastest growing private companies in America by Inc. 5000, a New York-based media outlet. Sharing the positive news, Ripple tweeted, “We’re honored to be recognized for our continued exponential growth on the @Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America.”

As reported, Ripple was also named as one of the best Medium workplaces by Fortune Magazine. The report gave the total number of Ripple employees around the world as 575. Despite facing legal woes in the U.S. because of the SEC lawsuit, the fintech behemoth managed to sustain its global expansion by announcing new roles.
