Ripple and XRP

Johnson shows annoyed that many people are not able to distinguish the firm Ripple of the Token XRP and function. Many in the crypto scene to Ripple and XRP will be used is still a synonym. Here, the Token XRP is only a part of the company, the transactions in the network.

He draws the comparison to the American Oil company ExxonMobil. This will also be used interchangeably with the term Oil, even if Oil is one of the essential components of the business. Ripple is, accordingly, not a Cryptocurrency, but a Software company offering financial services.

The first quarter of 2018, was for Ripple the best so far. This makes the fact that countless partnerships with other companies, banks and financial institutions were closed. Nevertheless, whether it is for the XRP-Token the probably worst quarter have been measured at exchange value and market capitalization. This does not show that the company and crypto-currencies the same.

SWIFT, as the main competitor

In addition, Johnson is also on the market for Ripple. So, the banking consortium SWIFT had always been the big competitor to Ripple. The co-operative SWIFT standardized worldwide transactions between different banks from different countries. The range of the SWIFT is compared with the network-based Ripple many times larger.

Nonetheless, the System have some weaknesses. So be it, unlike the Name suggests, anything other than ‘swift’ (fast). A transaction need three to five days, with an error rate of 4 percent. The System standing a carrier pigeon is closer than to a Messenger service or an E-Mail. Here he sees opportunities for the enforcement of Ripple.

With these statements, it clearly the XRP also other crypto currencies such as Bitcoin and Ether, do not occur where Ripple in the competition would like to. Although he sees that there is Bitcoin and Ether – holder, the counter-Ripple, however, he writes that the General resentment to the crypto market. The actual Use-Case of XRP, to work in the Ripple Ecosystem, does not affect this.
