The appearance of the Coronavirus has affected the entire society. Damaging people who are infected by this disease, affecting world markets. For this reason, collaboration in this difficult time for humanity is essential, as Ripple engineer Nik Bougalis, who has offered his support in the Tweet of today:
A head economy
The effects that Coronavirus has caused in all sectors of our daily life is impressive. Leading, only economically, to 4 days of total collapse in the world’s main exchanges, including crypto. And to the practically absolute interruption of commercial and productive activities around the world for days.
If the best means at our disposal to deal with the Coronavirus is social distancing, and therefore quarantine measures, the only way that these measures could be met is by staying at home. Or, in other words, failing to attend our jobs on a daily basis.
This has already led to the disruption of global supply chains, as well as the decision of several of the world’s leading companies to work from home as the crisis passes. A process for which not all companies are equally well prepared as Ripple.
In the case of the crypto world, due to the totally online nature of cryptocurrencies, there is ample remote working experience. With cases like Binance, an exchange that claims to not have physical offices, or Ripple, whose leading engineer in C ++ software development has tweeted the following:
“I have worked remotely for over 20 years and am currently leading a large, fully distributed team at Ripple. If you are new to telecommuting, especially as a manager, and have questions, please ask! I will do my best to respond and share my ideas to help you and your team“
In this way, one of the main minds of Ripple would be placing itself at the command of those who require help in the adaptation process to which the Coronavirus has forced us. Showing the ability to do the good that each of us has from our position.
