Charles Hoskinson addresses rumors surrounding Ripple lawsuit

Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano is one of the co-founders of Ethereum. Hoskinson has been embroiled in a debate with the XRP community over alleged rumors of ConsenSys founder Joseph Lubin bribing the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to give Ethereum a “free pass” and go after Ripple. Here free pass meant Ethereum was allowed to conduct business as usual while Ripple was hit by a lawsuit.

It is important to note that Hoskinson currently finds himself in a similar situation to Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple, in 2020. The US SEC slammed Ripple with a lawsuit, alleging the unregistered sale of securities, here securities meaning XRP. The SEC has listed Cardano as an investment contract in its lawsuit against Kraken, a cryptocurrency exchange. It is therefore clear that the regulator considered Cardano an investment contract.

Hoskinson commented on the rumors stating that the XRP community needs to present evidence to back its claims, or else he finds it a “grand conspiracy.”

Joseph Lubin is involved here as ConsenSys is software production studio that offers clients enterprise Ethereum solutions. The tight relationship between ConsenSys and Ethereum gave rise to the rumors, however, no evidence of bribery has been presented so far.
