Hall said the 2022 Sustainability Award went to Ripple. In addition, James Wallis, vice president emeritus for the central bank and CBDCs engagement at RippleX, was named digital currency leader of the year.
Ripple Takes Care of the Environment
Official information on the Currency Research website confirms the claims made. The Best Sustainability Initiative award recognizes renowned companies and people working hard to reduce the negative impact of digital currencies on the environment.
Ripple emerged victorious ahead of two notable finalists, Andrei Lipkin, a prominent central banking and cryptocurrency strategy advisor, and Stellar. The latter company runs Jed McCaleb’s decentralized open-source protocol.
According to an article by The Crypto Basic published in December, Ripple often states its commitment to promoting green projects. As mentioned above, the organization has signed the Climate Pledge, joining over 300 other companies. The main goal of these companies is to become carbon neutral by 2040.
According to official figures from Currency Research, James Wallis also won the prestigious Digital Currency Leader of the Year award. This was in addition to the Sustainability Initiative award he has already received. Wallis stood out among the finalists, which included Jonathan Dharmapalan of eCurrency and Shiva Bissessar of Pinaka Consulting Ltd. Wallis also received the award for his contribution to digital currencies.
The award recognizes people who have put much effort into the cryptocurrency industry through their creative ideas, visionary leadership, effective advocacy, or significant efforts in various areas.
