Self-proclaimed bitcoin creator Craig Wright and Ripple CTO David Schwartz got into a heated debate on Twitter. The cause of the altercation was a tweet from Wright in which he claimed that “XRP is a complete scam“. However, as always, David Schwartz responded sarcastically to this absurd claim.
You know why I can say this?

Ripple’s CTO doesn’t fall for Craig Wright’s trick
nChain chief scientist and controversial entrepreneur Craig Wright wrote on Twitter, “If you mention Ripple’s CTO, call him what he is… a crook, Davie“. He then compared David Schwartz with Maddoff and XRP with shitcoins.
This lawsuit is nonsensical. @Dr_CSWright doesn’t need any particular person to write code, he can do that himself. He is trying to get a court to compel people to persuade others to run that code. 1/2 https://t.co/AJrAg74i1x

Wright stated “If you think this is slander, remember the truth. Davie is a crook“He didn’t stop there and also wrote that “XRP is a complete scame”.
Triggered by this statement, Schwartz responded, “It’s funny how you feel the need to attack me when, and only when, you are criticized for your own indefensible actions.“
We always see that the self-proclaimed creator of Bitcoin always has something to say about XRP or David Schwartz while he acts as if things are reversed.
