A citizen of Japan, Ken Takahashi, created a petition on the site change.org which was aimed at the Olympic Games Committee and proposed XRP as an official cryptocurrency of the upcoming games in Tokyo.
The petition has already been signed by almost 9 thousand people.
According to its author, such a huge sports event boosts the demand for the local currency which in its turn causes multiple problems like the insufficient amount of exchanges, communication issues etc, whereas “the fast transaction times and security of Ripple Lab’s XRP cryptocurrency” could be essential in solving these problems.
