The heated exchange between Ripple CTO David Schwartz and self-proclaimed bitcoin creator Craig Wright has been escalating since December 24th. On that day, the conversation between the two men started out as a neutral discussion about the institutional acceptance of bitcoin, but quickly shifted to a bitter argument about the legitimacy of XRP.
Craig Wright was vocal in his criticism of Schwartz, accusing him of pushing his agenda while avoiding dialogue on topics unrelated to XRP. He also attacked Schwartz for his perceived lack of logic in his arguments, claiming that „nothing by DS is reasoned in this series of tweets. There are ad hominem and other logical fallacies. Nonetheless, he claims that these are reasoned arguments“.
Schwartz responded to Wright’s attack on the XRP cryptocurrency, asserting that Wright only began discussing XRP when he demonstrated that an argument he made was absurd. He implied that Wright was less concerned with solving real problems in the cryptocurrency industry and more focused on attacking him and XRP.
The Ripple executive further stated that he had no intention of engaging in a debate with Wright on topics that the latter had no interest in. „Why should I have a debate with Craig about something he doesn’t care about if he won’t even have a debate with me about the things he does care about?“ Schwartz said in a tweet.
The heated argument between the two men has been ongoing since December 24th, and it remains to be seen how it will develop in the days and weeks to come.
