Ripple exec provides jaw-dropping insight into XRP creation
Ripple CTO David Schwartz has taken to Twitter to dismiss speculation regarding the creation of XRP. It all started when member of the crypto community @ScamDetective5 challenged the notion that XRP was created by Ripple. To prove his theory, the user presented a thread with the facts from Ripple's history, including the creation of Ripple Credits, XRPL's reset by Jed McCaleb, and the disappearance of initial blocks. Schwartz called the logic behind the thread "nonsensical" and used Bitcoin Cash's case to defend his argument. When Bitcoin Cash was created, wrote the Ripple CTO, many individuals already held the cryptocurrency, but it was not due to any direct involvement from the creators of Bitcoin Cash. Schwartz also emphasized that changes in system rules or operations do not generate new versions of existing assets.
