Canadian e-commerce giant Shopify developer advocate moves to blockchain firm Ripple

The developer advocate for the Canadian e-commerce giant Shopify, Jason Tigas, has tweeted that he will be joining the blockchain company Ripple, which is based in San Francisco.

Tigas asserts that his goal for the firm is to establish “a world without economic boundaries.” He went on to say that Web3’s decentralised banking applications and non-fungible currencies have the ability to “do a lot” for the online retail industry.

Back in September of 2018, Tigas became a member of Shopify. After working for the firm as the strategic relationship manager for a year and a half, he was promoted to the role of developer advocate at Shopify in January 2020, and then moved on to a job of a similar kind at Ripple in August of this year. A few months prior to joining Shopify, the individual who identifies themselves as an Ethereum enthusiast helped establish a consultancy firm in Toronto called Cryptonaire.

Late in the month of June, Ripple established its very first office in the Canadian territory. According to the company’s chief executive officer, Brad Garlinghouse, it will act as the “primary engineering centre.” Ripple has said that it intends to increase the number of workers working in the nation to “hundreds.” Before it ever opened its office, the firm had already established partnerships with a number of educational institutions located in Canada in order to promote and advance blockchain research.

Midway through the month of June, the organisation said that it will be able to maintain its pace of new employee recruitment, in spite of the fact that competitors such as Coinbase and other major players have reduced their staffs due to the crypto winter. Ripple, on the other hand, asserts that it is in a healthy financial position despite the fact that it is now engaged in a contentious legal fight with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, which has already cost the business more than one hundred million dollars in legal expenses.
