Ripple doesn’t have any if the qualities we look for in a cryptocurrency. It’s centralized. Held by select few (poor distribution). 100% premined. It’s more similar to Airmiles or credit card reward points than bitcoin.
Edit: in lieu of most comments here, we really should stop including Ripple in cryptocurrency forums, sites, exchanges,… Ripple belongs to r/CompanyRewardsPoints not here. Coin market cap and other sites should remove it from their sites. Also thank you for rewarding me “Reddit Platinum”, I value it more than XRP since Reddit is actually producing something productive and people actually use it.
