Ripple Co-Founder And Executive Chairman Chris Larsen Makes A Full Recovery From COVID-19

Chris Larsen, the Co-founder and Executive Chairman of Ripple, has made a full recovery from COVID-19, as in a tweet on April 2, he thanked those working on the frontline against the virus and also called for recovered patients to donate blood for use in antibody transplants.

Thank you to everyone on the frontlines keeping us safe – am truly grateful to report that I’ve made a full recovery from #COVID19. If you’ve recovered from the virus, please consider donating your blood to help with antibody transplants: — Chris Larsen (@chrislarsensf) April 2, 2020

It has been reported that Larsen had not publicly shared the fact that he had been diagnosed with COVID-19. The majority of the crypto-community only discovered the truth when he posted his tweet, accompanied by a picture of himself wearing a facemask giving a thumbs-up gesture.

However, despite his recent recovery from the illness, Larsen was keen to encourage others who have recovered to help those still suffering by donating blood.

The blood of those who have successfully fought off the disease contains antibodies. Through a blood transfusion, these can help very ill patients to fight off the virus, even before they start to produce antibodies of their own.

Currently, Larsen serves as executive chairman on Ripple’s board of directors.

After the cryptocurrency Bull Run in late 2017, it was suggested that Larsen’s Ripple stock-holdings could have propelled him to the position of the world’s richest man.

Thus, Larsen and his wife, Lyna Lam, now dedicate a significant amount of time and money to philanthropic efforts.
