Weiss Ratings slams Ripple CEO
On Saturday, February 22, financial analytical agency Weiss Ratings published a post criticizing the head of blockchain giant Ripple. The agency bashed Brad Garlinghouse for saying the cryptocurrency world cannot function without banks and that getting bankers on board is crucial for crypto's future.
Weiss Ratings supports the opinion popular in the crypto space that crypto is likely to replace banks. Their tweet is as follows:
“#Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse said that stressing compliance is key to getting bankers on board with #crypto. We don't need bankers to get involved in the crypto. Maybe he and his company do, but the space doesn't. Crypto doesn't need banks, because crypto will replace them.”
In the comment thread, the XRP community showed their disagreement and began a heated discussion.
