- Ripple’s CTO says XRP has brought a lot of innovative solutions.
- XRP/USD has extended the recovery above $0.3000.
Ripple’s CTO David Schwartz named the innovations related to XRP during the Twitter conversation with Blockstream’s CEO Adam Back. Namely, he mentioned decentralized exchange (DEX), invariant checking and the fact that new keys can be issue receiving addresses. Also, XRP appears to be the first cryptocurrency that can be forked without the proof-of-work (PoW).
However, Adam Back was not impressed:
@JoelKatz you were waxing poetic about innovation. Explain that, lols: Jed and ripple dumping on retail insane amounts per day. The only puzzling things are a) why are retail so stupid to keep buying XRP, and b) why the SEC hasn't shut it down with prejudice already. "Innovation"
