The leading media outlet founder is confident of Ripple’s growth despite criticisms.

David Gokhshtein, the founder of cryptocurrency company Gokhshtein Media and Former US Congressional Candidate, is confident about the growth of the Ripple (XRP) community regardless of critics’ hatred for the project.

“The more you toxic f’s hate on XRP, the bigger the army grows,” Gokhshtein said. 

Ethereum Supporters Troll Ripple Project

Contrary to what many expect, Ripple has not received much support from the cryptocurrency community in its ongoing lawsuit against the SEC.  

Some supporters of Ripple rivals, especially Ethereum, believe the Silicon Valley tech company should be left alone to face its legal battle against the SEC.

Vitalik Buterin, the co-founder of Ethereum, made this known in a recent tweet, saying that Ethereum enthusiasts have no obligation to back Ripple in the lawsuit.

For Buterin, Ripple lost its right to protection when it named Ethereum as Chinese-controlled in its legal battle with the SEC.


While the Ethereum community applauded Buterin’s comment, Ripple enthusiasts took to different social media platforms to slam him for making such a comment. 

Attorney John Deaton, the founder of Crypto Law, was among the Ripple enthusiasts who frowned at Buterin’s comment.  

The more I think about the shameful and disgusting comment and considering you haven’t deleted or clarified it; I realize you didn’t misspeak. This was an immature, hateful comment directed at a community of innocent digital asset holders and NOT Ripple,” Deaton said.

Since 2017, Ripple and Ethereum have been close rivals, and the rivalry has continued even after the former was charged by the SEC for offering unregistered security in the U.S.

Despite all this, recently, Ripple got two companies, I-Remit and TapJets, support against SEC after Judge Analisa Torres overruled the SEC’s objection to a ruling by Judge Sarah Netburn requesting that the agency hand over documents related to the drafting of the controversial William Hinman speech in 2018.

Ripple also received chamber of digital commerce support, favoring the blockchain company standing firm in front of the SEC.
