Vitalik Buterin Reveals Reason For Resenting Ripple and XRP, David Schwartz, John Deaton Respond


Recommended Posts

Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum (ETH), has recently revealed his resentment for Ripple and XRP community, following the new regulation in Canada that places restrictions on certain digital assets, including one of the largest smart contract platforms, Solana (SOL).

In a recent tweet, Buterin recalled Ripple’s filing of December 2020, which classified Ethereum (ETH) as a China-controlled digital asset.

In response to an Ethereum community member that said if XRP was restricted in the new regulation, he wouldn’t have bothered, Vitalik Buterin wrote, “XRP already lost their right to protection when they tried to throw us under the bus as "China-controlled" imo.”

What Brought about Vitalik Buterin’s Statement?

As aforementioned, a new Canadian crypto regulation is limiting the value of crypto people can buy in certain regions to $30,000 per year. This affects certain cryptocurrencies like Solana (SOL), but digital assets such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Litecoin (LTC), are excluded from the restriction.

In response to a complaint in relation to the new restriction from David Hoffman, the founder of Bankless.eth, Buterin said he’s happy to see Ethereum community members pushing against regulations that affect other legitimate cryptocurrencies.

Buterin tweeted, “Glad to see Ethereum people pushing against regulations that privilege ETH over other legitimate cryptocurrencies.”

Vitalik is and always will be salty towards Ripple because Ripple is actively attempting to reveal, in a court of law, that Vitalik himself, along with everything Ethereum encapsulates, is nothing more than a construct. Lubin even came out and said it explicitly that it was all a construct, and it flew under the radar of most. Ripple are hopefully close to bringing all of that evidence to light.

I've thought it for a long time now, but Vitalik is as much a construct as Elizabeth Holmes was for Theranos. Creating realities with words. And what is Vitalik's background? Writing. He's the philosopher of the group, the unique mascot-like character that could be used to shield all of the blatantly slimy, egotistical, greedy thugs that were running the day-to-day scam on the crypto world. 

I'd bet dime to donuts that Vitalik couldn't code his way out of a moderately difficult jam, but he can talk his way out of just about any. This is what his role is.
