White House to Pit #XRP Against Bitcoin Fearing China’s Mining Dominance
The U.S. administration is interested in pitting Ripple’s centralized XRP token against Bitcoin to tackle China’s crypto dominance. Cory Johnson, Ripple’s new chief marketing strategies, told Breaker Magazine that the White House is researching the consequence of China’s Bitcoin mining dominance, which currently amounts to over 80 percent. The digital currency’s mounting popularity among millennials and professional investors in the U.S. has led the Donald Trump government to explore its potential. Realizing that breaking the Chinese mining companies’ hegemony would be difficult, the U.S. administration thinks it would be better to introduce a competition to limit Bitcoin’s exposure in the country. “When I started to meet with people in government and regulators, I had very low expectations. I have been truly amazed at the open-mindedness, number one,” recalled Johnson. “And number two, the smart questions, sometimes even tough questions. There’s clearly a lot of homework going on. The White House, in particular, seems to be thinking about what it means to have 80 percent of Bitcoin mining taking place in China and a majority of Ether mining taking place in China.”
