He wrote that XRP has the potential of becoming the “Microsoft of crypto.” Nunn is the CEO of The Blackmore Group and Wealth Chain Group.
He recently tweeted that he has never been a supporter of Ripple’s XRP but “they are making some serious moves… they will become the Microsoft of crypto.”
Web 3.0 or the Internet of value is a term that gets flaunted a lot lately to validate cryptos and the blockchain tech and also the massive role that these will play in the way interactions and transactions will take place shortly.
“Web 1.0 was a lot about the publishing of information on the web. Web 2.0 where Google kind of took off, among other companies, was about interaction on the internet and messaging and sharing data,” Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong said.
He continued and said “Web 3.0, we think, is going to be about value transfer on the internet. I think Coinbase can be the Google of crypto in the sense that this new way that applications are being built on the internet, Web 3.0, we can be the leading company in the world for that.”
Coinbase plans to position itself as the next indispensable tool of the Internet.
We already said that Ripple has been likened to an IT giant that spent the best part of 20 years struggling to catch up with technology.
Nunn’s point appears to be that, while Microsoft’s technology was the bad egg to Apple’s good, Bill Gates’ focus on adoption, at the expense of product, was the recipe for his company’s success:
Philipp Nunn also said that “The genius of Bill Gates was the fact he was in early and timing was everything. Whilst others were focusing on product development, he was focusing on adoption. Windows, Excel, and Word are the go-to tool for every business.”
He believes it’s all about adoption: “The next wave of crypto is all about adoption: those who crack that will succeed and those who don’t will fail. XRP and Ripple are getting into all the banks and positioning themselves.”
