Warren Paul Anderson
Ripple, Head of Developer Relations

Warren Paul Anderson leads developer relations for Xpring, Ripple's open platform for money. Since joining Ripple in 2016, Warren has worked as a product manager for the XRP Ledger, Interledger Protocol and RippleNet's On-Demand Liquidity product. Prior to Ripple, Warren co-founded Hedgy, one of the first decentralized finance applications that used blockchain-based smart contracts for derivatives trading. In a previous life, before discovering crypto as an early bitcoin miner in 2011, Warren spent several years building startups in the Internet of Things. Warren has a bachelor's degree from Northwestern and did graduate studies at Harvard.


Blockchain has revolutionized the technology industry—inspiring an outpour of questions searching for the next step forward to best utilize this tech to its full potential. Yet, how can developers forge a path to innovation when walking through uncharted territory? The barrier to entry has kept many coders out of the world of crypto, despite its emergence as the next wave of technology. Warren can discuss how to move the dial for developers to connect, communicate, program, and easily digitize money. The Xpring open-source platform, which captures a network of more than 20 million developers globally, allows developers to grasp blockchain, without the excessive lines of code and slow payouts. Warren can discuss how Xpring is moving the industry forward to change the way developers transact and take big leaps forward as they carve the next move forward in blockchain development.
