Chris Larsen, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of Fintech firm Ripple announced that he had “made a full recovery” from COVID-19.

Chris Larsen was born in San Francisco, California, and got his bachelor’s degree (B.S.) in accounting and business administration in 1984 from San Francisco State University (SFSU). In 2012, he and Jed McCaleb co-founded FinTech startup OpenCoin, which got renamed to Ripple Labs a year later. In February 2018, Forbes named him “the richest person in cryptocurrency”.

Larsen sent out yesterday to give the good news about his recovery.

It is admirable that Larsen is not only donating his blood so that others who are currently fighting this disease have a better chance of surviving, but he is encouraging others to do so also, and given Ripple’s sizeable fan base (i.e. XRP HODLers), his recommendation could make a significant difference.
