Go @Ripple. Most criticized in the crypto space, and yet by far the most active to get blockchain technology adopted worldwide… This is part of Ripple partnering with universities around the world to push blockchain development. It’s awesome, Ripple is really helping the entire crypto space, but you take it one step too far Just my opinion.” The post Ripple partners with Chinese research institute for Blockchain Technology Research Scholarship program appeared first on AMBCrypto.
