Ripple is finding mainstream recognition as the fastest cross-currency exchange network, appearing last night on NBC’s hit TV show The Blacklist. In a climactic scene, James Spader’s character, Red, puts a suspected mole in the FBI to a high-pressure test: he must make a $5 million transfer before Red takes apart and reassembles his gun. The suspected mole completes the cross-currency transfer under the wire using Ripple. For the sake of drama, the writers billed the transaction “untraceable,” which we know can’t be the case on Ripple.
It’s an exciting day for Ripple to step into the limelight!
