That same month, OpenCoin acquired SimpleHoney to help it popularize virtual currencies and make them easier for average users. On May 14, 2013, OpenCoin announced that it had closed a second round of angel funding. In July 2013, Jed McCaleb separated from active employment with Ripple.

What would have made Ripple for Beginners: An Introduction to XRP better?
It should have been even shorter. Half of the content was useless. Also it irked me that when it came to the few stats that were reported, everyone else's stats were rounded to the hundred or thousand, but the Ripple stat went down to the ones digit, to give it every last percent.
What was most disappointing about Ron Stern’s story?
While some of the content was useful and interesting, I found the entire listen to be completely biased. It would have been nice to have a bit of a more balanced view. It was annoying that he said "Ripple is for people with open minds", when he himself was closed minded.
How could the performance have been better?
It sounded like someone was reading from a high school book report. The step by step instructions for "how to Ripple" was completely unnecessary and a waste of time. The "common speech terms" should have been removed. The book should not use phrases like "you don't have to take our word for it" and "you're good to go"; they felt entirely out of place.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Half was interesting and I enjoyed that. The other half disappointed me.
Any additional comments?
I listened to it a second time to see if I was just being harsh, but it just solidified that overall I did not enjoy the experience.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
