Staggering amount of XRP on the move

At the moment, XRP is striving to hold above the $0.35 level, exchanging hands at $0.35334 on the Bitstamp crypto exchange.

Cardano Founder Is Done with XRP

Cardano founder distances himself from XRP

As covered by U.Today earlier, founder of Input Output Global, the company which built Cardano, Charles Hoskinson, stated in a recent video on YouTube that from now on he will not be taking part in any discussions related to Ripple or the XRP token affiliated with it. Nor will he answer any questions on those or share his opinions about them.

It happened after the XRP army started harassing him and accusing him of lying after December 15. This is the date, which he mentioned in a recent AMA, stating that he had heard rumors about the Ripple-SEC lawsuit to be resolved on that day.

This was not the first time the XRP army began trolling Hoskinson and abusing him. This fall he already stated once that he does not want to be involved in any Ripple or XRP discussions. Now, he has distanced himself from that once again.
