In a recent interview, Ethereumfounder Vitalik Buterin stated that crypto projects do not need to be decentralized, and that IOTA and XRP are still fully centralized, but they are still listed as crypto assets on CoinMarketCap.
Buterin also pointed out that XRP did not apologize for the previous pumping incident, when (December 2020) they claimed in a document submitted to the US government that XRP should be favored over Bitcoinand Ethereum.
Members of the XRP community expressed displeasure with Buterin’s comments.
RIZ.XRP stated that Buterin is killing Bitcoin and other crypto projects other than Ethereum such as XRP.
Other XRP enthusiasts also shared examples to prove that ETH is more centralized than XRP.
This is not the first time Buterin has criticized XRP.
In 2020, Buterin urged Ethereum enthusiasts not to defend Ripple in its legal battle with the SEC.
