Ripple Co-Founder Chris Larsen Faces Backlash Over BTC Source Code Change Campaign

Larsen’s final focus of the marketing campaign is to steer members of the Bitcoin group to come back collectively in a bid to vary the Bitcoin supply code from the excessive energy-consuming Proof-of-Work (PoW) to the higher conservative Proof-of-Stake (PoS) protocol. 

While Larsen claims his motives are pure and directed towards making certain the long-term success of the Bitcoin protocol, outstanding members of the ecosystem thought in any other case, with many expressing their displeasure together with his pursuits.

Ryan Selkis, the founder of knowledge analysis and analytics platform, Messari, known as Larsen a ‘Judas’ as he believes the billionaire Ripple founder is attempting to chew the fingers that fed him.

“Chris Larsen – who in a just society would be in jail for the bad faith investor misrepresentations he and his team made regarding their XRP sales – is spending money attacking the industry that created his ill-gotten multi-billion dollar fortune. Judas,” Ryan said in a tweet.

It will not be unusual to make modifications to blockchain protocols, particularly open-sourced ones just like the Bitcoin Network. However, to make such modifications, the proposals should cross via a set of processes, one among which Larsen’s didn’t cross via.

“I am unable to find your Bitcoin Improvement Proposal submission, nor can I find any discussions initiated by you on the development mailing list. Please follow the process if you wish to be taken seriously,” a outstanding Twitter Bitcoiner, Jameson Lopp mentioned in a tweet tagging the brains behind the marketing campaign, together with the accounts of Greenpeace, Chris Larsen, and Michael Brune of Sierra Club.

With the backlash acquired, it’s apparent that many could reject the proposal from Larsen if in any respect it makes it right down to the event mailing record. This could go away the Bitcoin group with the choice of advocating for the embrace of renewable power sources to appease staunch environmentalists.
