The remarks come as a follow on from Ripple’s threat to leave the U.S. over the absence of regulative clearness.
News of this very first gotten extensive attention at the start of October, when Ripple CTO Chris Larsen voiced his increasing disappointments over the U.S.’s hostile position towards the crypto market.
Much of this aggravation originates from, what Larsen views as, a regulative body that prefers Bitcoin and Ethereum. However, more than that, he stated the result to all of this sees the U.S. far behind China in the “tech cold war“.
” Rather of rotating to motivate U.S. development to maintain, they have actually done the reverse. They provided Bitcoin and Ethereum a pass, proof-of-work systems that benefit China, strangely. However whatever else is still in limbo, or even worse, type of managed through enforcement.”
