Billionaire Mike Novogratz Confirms Relationship with Ripple, Discusses SEC Matters With Garlinghouse

Billionaire Mike Novogratz has acknowledged an unexpected fact about his affiliation with Ripple Labs. Responding to an XRP community member’s speculation, “Mr. Huber,” Novogratz revealed his involvement with Ripple, claiming that he was a day-one investor and has not sold any of his shares in the last ten years.

The Galaxy Digital CEO made the statement in reaction to Mr. Huber’s suggestion that Novogratz may have acquired insider information regarding former SEC official William Hinman’s contentious speech. However, Novogratz indicated unequivocally that he has never spoken to or spoken with William Hinman about SEC problems.

In the tweet that has since been deleted, Novogratz noted that the only person he recalls communicating with concerning SEC problems was Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse, who was visiting the SEC regularly.

Mike Novogratz tweeted, “The only person I remember speaking to about SEC matters was Brad Garlinghouse who was visiting them pretty regularly. Have been a day-one investor in Ripple Labs and have not sold any of my shares in the past ten years.”

The disclosure is interesting given that Novogratz has previously criticized XRP, claiming that “one group owns far too much of it.” Furthermore, Novogratz once chastised the XRP price increase for not making much sense in his opinion.

It is important to understand, however, that XRP and Ripple are two separate entities. Ripple is a fintech business that develops worldwide payment technologies, while XRP is the digital asset it majorly distributes.

Novogratz’s clarification may assist to dispel rumors and develop a better understanding of Ripple’s interactions with industry players and authorities. Novogratz may be revealing insights into how Ripple talks with regulators about cryptocurrency regulation by stressing his correspondence with Ripple CEO over SEC concerns.
