LTC Founder Signs Petition To Free Ross Ulbricht

Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin has signed a Change.org petition to free Ross Ulbricht. According to Lee’s tweet, the Silk Road creator doesn’t deserve a life sentence without the possibility of ltcparole. Charlie Lee’s tweets have always been skirting controversy.

Last week he took to Twitter to congratulate Stellar Lumens (XLM) on passing Litecoin (LTC)’s market cap. But he further added,

“That said, it really doesn’t make sense to compare marketcaps of coins that are “printed”, b/c they have an inflated marketcap. Maybe I’m old school, but I only care about decentralized mineable coins.”

Charlie Lee explains that an article on the Silk Road led to him to find out about the number one cryptocurrency, Bitcoin.

He even posted a video with Lyn Ulbricht’s interview, in the comments section. Lyn Ulbricht is the mother of the Silk Road website’s creator. The Litecoin founder’s tweet requesting that others join him in signing the petition to free the criminal wasn’t received well. Twitterati took no time in responding to this controversial tweet and they questioned his decision.

One Twitter user called J~ said,

“Because you read an article about Bitcoin?  Should we also free Bernie Madoff because he taught you how to run a Ponzi Scheme?”

He further added,

“He knew everything that was being sold on his site and failed to shut it down or notify authorities.  If you had made a site that ended up being the ebay of drugs, guns, and kiddy porn, what would you have done?”
