Litecoin Association Director Challenges Coinbase CEO to Public Debate

Editors Note: We have corrected this story to contain Andrew’s correct Twitter account and that Garza had initially challenged him.


The Director of the Litecoin Association Andrew Vegetabile (@TheRealMage) has publicly challenged Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong to a public debate over his recent Twitter comments regarding the validity of altcoins. This debate will take place on a radio program if accepted by Armstrong.

The original tweet from Armstrong declared that altcoins are a distraction from bitcoin and side chains.

Armstrong’s comments garnered a strong reaction from many in the alt coin communities and those who consider themselves long on bitcoin.

In the midst of the tweets from Armstrong, Vegetabile tweeted a reply stating he wished to have a public debate with Armstrong.

Vegetabile was also challenged by Homero Joshua Garza to a debate recently that Garza later reneged on. Now it appears the Litecoin Association Director would like a public challenge regarding the validity of Armstrong’s comments.

Whether or not Armstrong will take Vegetabile’s offer up or not remains to be seen. Vegetabile told Coin Fire in an email,

I feel that if a CEO is so bold as to make a statement and attempt to shut down all other markets he should be able to back up his assertions.

This sentence should read as follows:

“Whether or not Armstrong will take Vegetabile UP ON HIS OFFER, remains to be seen. Vegetabile told Coin Fire in an email

Thanks for caring!

I’m pretty sure Andrew would win this debate.
