Investors, speculators, and crypto enthusiasts have anticipated this move for a long time, and following Ripple’s historic victory over the Securities and Exchange Commission, this was widely seen as the next target for the company.
The only thing that remains to be seen is the timeline for Ripple’s long-touted path of becoming a publicly traded company. Here’s what we currently know:

The role includes creating investor-focused materials like “presentations, fact sheets, case studies, and analyses“ to inform and educate potential investors about the company’s prospects and performance.
