Ripple Inc.’s chief technician David Schwartz has been advised to stop working day and night on a “scam project”.
The call out came after Schwartz responded to a condemnation about Facebook’s Libra, on the social media giant’s decision to drop Bitcoin to design its own digital currency owing to allegations that BTC is not scalable enough.
David Schwartz, who remains an important employee of Ripple and one of the strong designers and initiators of XRP ledger technology, was accused of using his extensive knowledge to promote an alleged scam crypto project –XRP.
The accuser, by the name Vandelay, posited that David would have been more helpful working on Bitcoin rather than XRP, which maximalists see as a “waste of energy” and a “scam project”.
Calling David a smart man, the Bitcoin-centric Vandelay, questioned David on why he chose to work for Ripple and decided to not join the leading technology that is inevitably becoming the “money standard”.
Ripple’s CTO Responded
Replying to the statement, David Schwartz asked if the questioner has looked deeply at the technology behind the XRP Ledger and Interledger, adding that he fell in love with XRP because he does not want to waste his time working around inferior core technology initiated by people who hope to sit back and get rich from the work of others.
The CTO said scammers are those telling the crypto twitter that there’s a short cut to wealth and success without building.
