On Sunday (27 November 2022), Matt Hamilton, a former Principal Developer Advocate at FinTech firm Ripple, explained the origin of “most of the disinformation spread about XRP.”
Hamilton, who is currently Principal Developer Advocate at Protocol Labs, still spends time on Twitter helping to clarify confusion around XRP and XRPL Ledger.
Earlier today, he said that “in the early days of Bitcoin Talk you could earn 5 BTC by posting FUD that XRP was centralised and a scam, and that this is “the source of most of the disinformation spread about XRP to this day.”
Hamilton went on to say:
“Yeah, someone was DMing a bunch of people on there and offering them 5 BTC if they posted some specific FUD about XRP saying it was centralized and a scam. If you look through the old posts you will still see discussion of it at the time. The brain rot of BTC maximalists.“
The following thread (dated 22 May 2013) from Bitcoin Forum (originally founded by Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonymous inventor of Bitcoin) explains what Hamilton is talking about:
