Recent controversial events provoked by Ripple

Over the past few weeks, the community has clearly expressed their reaction regarding regular XRP sales conducted by Ripple.

A Twitter users Crypto_Bitlord publicly expressed his indignation, tweeting that Ripple is dumping gargantuan amounts of XRP deliberately – to prevent the asset’s price from increasing.

The first step he took to try and stop it was to set up a petition on the change.org website, demanding that Ripple would stop the dumping. The second one was that he threatened to conduct an XRP fork to prevent further coin’s price fall.

However, later on, a petition with an opposite goal appeared on the same platform. A user who initiated it demanded that Ripple should continue dumping XRP in order to ‘unleash’ the utility of XRP.

The first petition has already received nearly 2,500 signatures.

Brad Garlinghouse responds

In a series of tweets reported by U.Today earlier, Mr Garlinghouse addressed several issues regarding FUD that is being spread around XRP and pointed out that the regular so-called ‘XRP dumps’ (1 bln XRP that is released from escrow each quarter and sold) chases the only goal – to increase the XRP utility.

The most recent example of an ‘XRP dump’ is the transfer of 100 mln XRP from Ripple to the wallet of the Stellar founder Jed McCaleb.

The crypto analyst @CryptoMichNL believes that there are two paths ahead of Bitcoin at the moment. If it fails to recover to $8,300, he says on his Twitter page, then the market should be ready for the flagship coin to drop and find support at the $7,800 or $7,300 levels.

Whichever way it goes, ‘continuation of the ranging on either of the levels is going to occur’.

The analyst tweeted this forecast twice with an hour pause.
