Petition appeared on site Change.org and addressed to the International Olympic Committee, calling for the XRP to be the currency of the 2020 Olympics.
For any country, the Olympiad is an event that presents great cultural and economic opportunities, but the receiving parties face many problems related to infrastructure, transport and payment systems.
As the organizer arrives in the country, the demand for local currency is rapidly growing, causing long queues in currency exchange offices, as could be seen at the last Olympic Games in Beijing 2008 and Rio de Janeiro 2016. Intricate exchange rates and language barriers further complicate the problem.
The creators of the petition believe that fast transactions and the security of the Ripple XRP cryptocurrency would be a great contribution to solving this problem.
