Bitstamp Apologizes For Review Calling XRP “Toxic Waste”
Cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamp has apologized for posting material “parts of which contain expressions and content that do not reflect its own views or values.”.
The report, titled Cryptotesis for 2021, was prepared by analyst firm Messari and sponsored by Bitstamp. In it, Messari founder Ryan Selkis calls XRP “toxic waste” and bitcoin forks “a bunch of crap.”.
“I can’t believe I still have to write about this pile of shit. But this year at least there is a ray of hope. Bitcoin forks, including BCH, BSV, BTG and others, are useless. The toxic assets XRP and XLM that keep regulatory control afloat go against everything that attracted me to crypto. Litecoin is essentially Bitcoin’s production testnet. Attack her and steal the money if you can, ”writes Selkis.
Bitstamp removed the link to the post, explaining: “We have not read the entire review, which is over 130 pages long. By sponsoring cryptocurrency research, we strive to convey to the public different points of view, even if they do not completely coincide with ours, but only as long as they do not express disrespect to any part of the community. “.
Selkis himself stated that he deliberately tried to stick to a playful tone in order to interest the reader. At the same time, he noted that he does not change his views on XRP and considers it a “charlatan drug”.
“Bitstamp could count on our analysts to produce more ‘professional’ material. I don’t blame them for being caught off guard, ”added Selkis.
Previously, he reported that he received threatening calls after his company criticized XRP in one of its publications..
