Less than a month after the Fortune listing, Ripple received another recognition from Inc Magazine.
American business magazine Inc Magazine has recognized payment protocol Ripple as one of the fastest-growing companies in America. The magazine recently released “the Inc. 5000 Companies,” which comprises exploding companies and their leaders. Out of the 5,000 companies Inc magazine highlighted on this year’s list, Ripple is in the 2,456th position. The payment protocol attained the position after rising 236% over the past year.
Ripple has undoubtedly been making ways for itself and positioning itself at remarkable levels. Before Inc Magazine released its list, Fortune referred to Ripple as one of the best medium workplaces. The blockchain company climbed to 34th on this year’s list, rising over its previous position in 2021. Fortune determines the best workplaces by collaborating with global data analytics and consulting firm Great Place to Work. The joint forces could evaluate each company’s level with their data. While acknowledging Ripple as the best medium workplace, Fortune said the blockchain company has a total of 575 employees across the globe. Also, the company is fervent in expanding its reach despite its long-running legal battle with US regulators. Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse sounded fulfilled with the achievement, stating that it is “always nice to get a little third-party validation.”
