REDDIT, Internet – Long-time forum adversaries /r/bitcoin and /r/BTC have reportedly set aside their differences to talk shit about centralized, real-time settlement system Ripple. Tensions have recently been high in the crypto community, amid many initiatives that have decidedly chosen to work with banks as opposed to against them have been gaining traction.
“It makes my blood boil,” says /r/BTC moderator and Bitcoin Cash posterchild /u/MemoryDealers. “These hacks are a disgrace to the cryptocurrency space. They’re not decentralized, and they’ll never be one of us.”
Controversial /r/bitcoin moderator /u/theymos had this to say:
“Look, you can’t just build a technology that will streamline global banking – this isn’t Blade Runner or something. Banks have to be destroyed, otherwise my bitcoin won’t ever allow me to retire and I’ll have to get a real job.”
When each user was asked if their portfolio contained any XRP (The token that powers Ripple’s xRapid platform), they declined to publicly state. User /u/theymos did however, message The HODL Times on Reddit asking if we knew where to to buy some.
