Ripple donates $4 million to Ellen DeGeneres’ charity
Ripple’s movement in the financial technology sector has been noticed by mainstream celebrities, with an appearance on the famous talk show ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’. The talk show in question is hosted by celebrity Ellen DeGeneres, who also runs the Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund. The sanctuary is located in Rwanda.
Prominent actor Ashton Kutcher appeared on the show earlier today to announce that he would be making a donation to the wildlife fund. Kutcher, along with famous manager Guy Oseary, has shown interest towards venture capitalism.
They began a company known as A-Grade Investments in 2010, with billionaire Ron Burkle. Significant investments include $2.5 million in Airbnb, which is worth around $90 million now, and $500000 in Uber, which is pegged currently at around $60 million.
A-Grade’s performance rests at an average of about 3.3x, due to investments in Spotify, Warby Parker and Houzz.
Kutcher, on the show, spoke about how he invested in Ripple and the various use-cases for XRP for moving value worldwide. He mentioned that he was meeting with Chris Larsen and Brad Garlinghouse, and about how they wanted to help people who wanted to change the world for the better.
