Ripple Executive Owes Sister $100,000 in Bitcoin for a Plane Ticket

Ripple’s chief technology officer David Schwartz says he owes his sister a serious amount of Bitcoin from a plane ticket she purchased on his behalf years ago.

Schwartz says his sister bought him the ticket to ensure he made it to a wedding.

“I’ve owed my sister 2.77904 BTC for years now (she paid for a plane ticket for me and wanted me to pay her in Bitcoin). I’ve reminded her a few times that it’s real money now and she keeps not collecting.”

At time of writing, Schwartz’s BTC debt to his sibling is worth $100,719.

The Ripple executive highlights that he even offered to pay her sister back in three different currencies.

“I think I offered her dollars, XRP, or bitcoin and she chose bitcoin, but I don’t remember for sure. I think she had a Bitcoin wallet at the time in her phone and asked me to take it over either to handle the BCH (Bitcoin Cash) split or when her phone broke and she never set it up again.”

Schwartz is known for sharing personal details about his crypto journey to his 184,000 followers.

Last month, the CTO of the payments startup pulled back the curtain on his crypto portfolio. He said he holds XRP, Bitcoin, Ethereum (ETH), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Stellar Lumens (XLM) Cardano (ADA), Polymath (POLY), Bancor Network Token (BNT), Kin, Crypterium (CRPT), StormX (STMX), Bitcoin Gold (BTG) and EOS.

Last year, Schwartz revealed that he sold 40,000 ETH at $1.00.
