Ripple’s CTO Jokingly Offers Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin A Job At Ripple As XRP Recovers Slowly Against The USD

Ripple joins Blockchain Capital VC Fund with XRP investment worth $25 million price

The XRP price prediction 2019 has been positive since the beginning of the year. Even as the price of XRP struggled to hold the $0.32 support against the USD, more bullish XRP price predictions were made by the XRP army as reported by smartereum.com. This weekend was most likely the bloodiest weekend for cryptocurrencies this year. The price of Bitcoin and altcoins fell significantly against the USD costing the entire cryptocurrency market up to $6 billion in market capitalization. XRP almost lost the important support at $0.32 diving dip into the oversold levels. Meanwhile, on cryptocurrency Twitter, something else was going on. The Chief Technology Officer at Ripple, David Schwartz jokingly offered the founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin, an internship job at Ripple.

The CEO of Coinbase, Brian Armstrong, posted a Twitter thread about how the United States refused to grant the CEO of Zoom visa even after eight trials. Commenting on the thread, the Ethereum’s Vitalik Buterin talked about how Visa complications stopped him from working with Ripple in 2013. In his words;

“Fun fact: I tried to be an intern at Ripple back in the day (mid 2013), but US visa complications having to do with the fact that the company had only existed for 9 months and the minimum was 1 year stopped me.”

Replying to Buterin’s tweet, the CTO of Ripple, David Schwartz said that Buterin should try again and that Ripple would be happy to have him as an intern. This was after another member of the XRP Army asked Buterin to join Ripple tagging Schwartz to the thread. In Schwartz’s words;

“That still saddens me. Think of the great things you might have accomplished! Maybe apply again? We’re always looking for good interns.”

As expected, this sparked up conversations between the XRP army and the Ethereum community. While some people got the joke, some Ethereum community members were offended by Schwartz’s words. One of them asked him to treat Buterin with respect. In the user’s words;

“This’s so arrogant reply David.I think he deserves a lot of respect what he achieved at such a young age.”

After this post, Schwartz made it clear that he was only joking when he asked Buterin to apply for the internship position again. He said; “Vitalik knows I have nothing but respect for him and his work”.

Still on the thread, Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, said that he also wanted to work for Ripple all those years ago. He said that if he and Buterin had worked as interns, they would have been friends rather that rivals. In his words;

“When I found out these facts from @justmoon in late 2013/early 2014, had we both been at Ripple, I am certain we would have been buddies👬since we would have been the only 2 millennials there! ❤@VitalikButerin”.
