Crypto Influencer Started “Ripple One” Channel On Discord – Plans To Fork XRP
Ripple and the digital asset XRP have been surrounded by a lot of controversies.
A while ago, we reported that a crypto influencer created a petition asking Ripple to stop selling XRP.
Now the same person has just taken the very first step towards forking XRP.
Ripple has been put on notice
Back in August, it was reported that Crypto Bitlord has put Ripple on notice and said that he would launch an effort to fork XRP in 60 days if Ripple does not stop selling portions of the holdings to crypto exchanges and institutions.
The Daily Hodl reported that he said:
“Finally, people are starting to take this seriously! If they don’t stop dumping XRP, the next step will be a community takeover. We will fork this shit and start again. That is a promise!!”
He also responded to Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse who recently posted a tweetstorm in order to try and eliminate “fear, uncertainty, and doubt facing Ripple and XRP.”
Bitlord created “Ripple One” channel on Discord
Now, it seems that Bitlord sent a tweet in which he’s saying that he has created a channel on Discord called “Ripple One” that will be used to discuss the fork.
This Thursday, Ripple’s Brad Garlinghouse has addressed the fork issue for the very first time and he told CNN that anyone could fork the open-source XRP ledger if they choose.
Proud to announce the #RippleOne discord channel has opened!
This is where we will begin structuring the $XRP fork planning our new future ❤️

“When people talk about forking technologies, you have seen Bitcoin forked multiple times. You have Bitcoin Cash, BSV, Bitcoin Diamond, I can’t name them all. There’s four or five forks of the Bitcoin blockchain. Bitcoin, obviously, the primary BTC, has remained the most notable,” Garlinghouse said.
He continued and said: “But in the same way, people can take XRP, an open-source technology, and hypothetically they could fork that if they chose to do so.”
Garlinghouse is both the CEO and Chairman of Ripple Labs. This year, Ripple surpassed 300 partners, including over 115 banks worldwide. Having launched On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) for cross-border payments, Ripple now has more than 20 partners using XRP for ODL, including Moneygram, Western Union, and American Express.
