CryptoScam #6 – Ripple (w/ Peter Todd)
In this 6th Episode of CryptoScam I am joined by Peter Todd (a Bitcoin Core Contributor) as we explore the value proposition of Ripple. It is amazing what one can learn in under 24 hours of trying to understand this token. We begin with the story of one the shadiest founders of a project in the CryptoSpace and end with proof that ripple is perhaps the biggest scam of all the coins. It continues to show that when you suspect something is off on a project, investigation usually reveals that it’s 100x times worse than you could have imagined.
