  • In 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto expressed his interest in Ripple, highlighting its focus on distributing trust, as opposed to centralizing it.
  • Satoshi Nakamoto discussed technical aspects of Bitcoin and recognized RipplePay as a precursor project and inspiration for the XRP Ledger.

Satoshi Nakamoto’s analysis of Ripple

Martti Malmi, active in Bitcoin development from 2009 to 2011, revealed communications with Satoshi Nakamoto, where the latter showed interest in Ripple. In their dialogues, they examined technical details of Bitcoin, including its issuance schedule, total coins, units and the feasibility of smaller bitcoin divisions.

Nakamoto highlighted Bitcoin’s ability to support high trading volume without immediate need for commissions. Introducing the topic of Ripple into the conversation, Malmi sought to get Nakamoto’s opinion on Ripple, who described it as an “interesting” project because of its focus on trust distribution, as opposed to trust centralization.

Clarification on Ripple and XRP

It should be noted that despite the fact that certain members of the XRP community have interpreted Satoshi’ s comments as praise for XRP, they were made three years prior to the creation of XRP.

Satoshi’s comments referred to ‘RipplePay’, the initial Ripple protocol developed in 2004 by Ryan Fugger, which later inspired the development of the XRP Ledger (XRP).

This finding comes at a pivotal time for Ripple and Bitcoin. Ripple has established itself as key payment system within the cryptocurrency financial market, providing advanced solutions for the sector .

At the same time, Bitcoin’s market capitalization has surpassed $1 trillion, reaffirming its position as the leading digital asset.
