Asked how this was possible without the consensus of participants and the code being published, the AI said it is possible that Ripple has “abilities that are not fully disclosed in the public source code.” I claimed.
At one point, AI said that XRPL’s “ultimate decision-making power” “still resides with Ripple Labs,” and the company said “even if those changes don’t win the support of the overwhelming majority of network participants. We can make changes,” he said. ”
Also XRPL and Bitcoin (Bitcoin) the latter described as “truly decentralized”.
However, Ripple CTO David Schwartz questioned the bot’s logic, which allowed Ripple to covertly Take control of the Bitcoin network Because neither can be determined from the code.
If the final argument is that Ripple Labs “may have” secret ways of controlling the XRP Ledger that cannot be determined from the public code, then Ripple Labs is the secret controlling the Bitcoin blockchain. Why don’t you claim that you “might have” the method of Judging by the code?
