Tone Vays, a prominent trader, Bitcoin enthusiast and head of research tweeted that having a debate between prominent people in the Bitcoin community and those in the XRP and Ripple community would be like a conversation between “Geologists” and “Flat Earthers”.
@Zerpryder tweeted that it would be “very educational” if there was a debate between members of the XRP and BTC community like David Schwartz [CTO of Ripple], Adam Back [CEO of Blockstream], Peter Todd [Cryptographer], Brad Garlinghouse [CEO of Ripple], Saifedean Ammous [Bitcoin economist and Author], Ryan Zagone [Director of Regulatory Relations of Ripple], Trace Mayer and Tone Vays.
Tone Vays retweeted @Zerpryder’s tweet saying:
“No, it would be more like Geologists debating Falt Earthers or those who still think the Earth is the Center of the Universe.
— #Bitcoin —
I was initially going to say “Creationists” but that would be disrespectful. The earth being 6,000 yrs old makes way more sense than $XRP”
There are people in the community who are against Ripple and XRP and are under the impression that Ripple and XRP is not a blockchain or decentralized. This is not a new revelation for Ripple as it faces a lot of heat especially when it comes to the topics of decentralization.
Tone Vays continued:
“Just to be clear, #Bitcoin & #Ripple have absolutely NOTHING in common besides being on @CoinMarketCap. $XRP is NOT money/currency, it’s a #security of @Ripple Corp, like all #ICO. If @SEC_Enforcement actually did their job, this would’ve already been clarified by @SEC_News”
A Twitter user, @Gannvan commented:
“Bitcoin core’s most prized developer thinks the earth is at the centre of the universe, so they might agree on something at least.”
Another user @Vovano commented:
“Omagad I fell in love with @ToneVays on this tweet. Why would anyone confuse XRP with a store of value”
“Hey @cryptomanran this I’m sure would draw a large audience. I for one would clear my calendar for the entire day to witness this. Anyone else have someone in mind to Host/Moderate?”
