Wietse Wind raises questions about the tool
The founder of Ripple-backed XRPL Labs, Wietse Wind, was the first to raise questions about whether the tool will be used to give people a way to upload illegal content onto the ledger.
He addressed the anonymous developer on GitHub.
“I’m worried. I operate a full history node on the XRP ledger. I am very very much afraid of what will happen when your service gets some actual use. It’ll be a matter of time before illegal content will be uploaded,” Wind sais.
He continued and said: “Especially with the hate against the XRP community from [Bitcoin maximalists]. When someone uploads pirated content, or worse: child abuse images, no one would be able to remove that from their full history servers.”
Wietse believes, “That would mean it would become a legal nightmare to run full history nodes, not only for me, but for all XRPL enthusiasts and businesses. I would kindly ask (beg) you to take down the project.”
Other developers believe that this tool could slow down the network.
Schwartz, on the other hand, says he doubts there’s any danger in the short term. He believes that there is not any danger coming from this.
