XRP Community Members: We Don’t Really Hate Ethereum

Fox Business Reporter Says XRP Supporters Hate Anything Ethereum. The Ripple community does not agree with this conclusion. Journalist Charles Gasparino published a tweet where he called the hatred of XRP enthusiasts for all things and people related to Ethereum absurd. According to Gasparino, every person he knows who has invested in Ethereum wants Ripple to win in a lawsuit with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The outcome of the case will directly affect the regulation of the entire crypto industry, including the ETH coin. Absurdity of the #XRPCommunity hatred for all things and people associated w @ethereum can be found in the fact that every person I know associated w #ETH wants @Ripple to prevail over the @SECGov because what it will mean for crypto regulation and probably the #ETH coin — Charles Gasparino (@CGasparino) January 15, 2023 Gasparino's tweet generated a lot of backlash from members of the XRP community who disagreed with his statement. One of them wrote that the ether is present in the investment portfolio of many XRP holders, so they would hardly want the collapse of the second cryptocurrency by market capitalization. In recent weeks, the reporter has already attacked XRP more than once, protecting the ether. In early January, Gasparino denied claims by Ripple lawyers that former SEC director Bill Hinman's controversial 2018 speech conflicted with the agency's position on cryptocurrencies.. Hinman previously said that ether cannot be considered a security.. However, statements by XRP supporters slipped on the Internet that these statements by Hinman were due to corrupt relations with the creators of Ethereum.. Gasparino calls XRP followers conspiracy theorists. In response, Gasparino's subscribers wrote that XRP supporters may be unhappy with the actions of some Ethereum founders and SEC officials, but this has nothing to do with the coin itself. In September, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse criticized the regulator for changing its mind about ether, which can be considered a security after switching to the Proof-of-Stake consensus algorithm.. Garlinghouse said he has invested heavily in long ether positions. By mentioning ETH in a lawsuit with the SEC, Ripple is only trying to achieve regulatory clarity regarding crypto assets, XRP owners are sure.
