Getting Ripple to change the scale of XRP utility, petition #2

As reported by U.Today earlier, a Twitter user @Crypto_Bitlord, indignant at the XRP price unable to grow for a long time, initiated a petition on to get Ripple to stop dumping XRP and let its quotes surge.

His petition has been signed 3,203 times already with the next goal planned to be 5,000 signatures.

The same user also threatened to hardfork XRP unless Ripple stops dumping the coin through its quarterly sales of 1 bln XRP and other cases when Ripple uses its currency for sponsorship or charity purposes.

The more amount of an asset is in circulation, the lower is its price, believes Crypto_Bitlord, following a simple market logic. Recently, the person was sent to a ban on Twitter for a short while, getting his account blocked. Now, Crypto_Bitlord is back on the air.

In the comment thread regarding the ‘pro-dumping’ petition, some members of the Ripple community express an opinion that selling 1 bln XRP per time is not enough to increase the XRP utility.

Ripple’s response

In the case of the first petition, Ripple’s reaction was no reaction. The only thing Brad Garlinghouse did was post a series of tweets, addressing the recent FUD messages on social media regarding XRP.

Among other things, the Ripple CEO pointed out that XRP sales are meant to increase the XRP utility.
