Kutcher and Guy Oseary - his business partner as well as manager to Madonna, U2, and Amy Schumer among others - gave Ellen the large donation on behalf of Ripple. Kutcher had previously been known for his interest in cryptocurrency, as he and Oseary run venture fund A-Grade Investments, which has invested in BitPay, and Sound Ventures, which has invested in Ripple.

Kutcher, who surprised Ellen with the donation, noted that since XRP was a cryptocurrency, they could do away with the “big giant check thing:”

“We can actually transfer [the donation] into Rwandan francs right now, right here, and all we have to do is push this button and it’s in your account.”
