- In a tweet late last month, Ripple CTO, David Schwartz, informed the crypto community that his Youtube channel was suspended.
- This was a few days after Ripple launched a lawsuit against Youtube citing inaction in the removal of XRP scams.
- David Schwartz is now the host of a Ripple-produced podcast known as ‘Block Stars’.
As the month of April came to a close, Ripple CTO, David Schwartz, informed Crypto Twitter that his Youtube channel had suddenly been suspended. The reason he was given by Youtube for the suspension, was impersonation. Mr. Schwartz went on to exclaim as to who he could possibly impersonate and further elaborated that the suspension meant he could not access, possess or create any other Youtube accounts.
