XRP (ripple) is centralized, bank-coin, garbage. Created by a corporation specifically to cater to banks. It was CBDC before there was CBDC. No thank you.

If true, that explains why they restricted trading for the past few years...."they" didn't want the average person getting in on the ground floor.

Here's the description right from Coingecko:

"Ripple is a privately-held fintech company that provides a global payment solution via its patented payment network called Ripple Network (also known as RippleNet). RippleNet is a payment network that is built on top of Ripple’s consensus ledger, called XRP Ledger (also known as XRPL). ... Unlike most cryptocurrencies out there that cater to peer-to-peer needs, Ripple was made to connect banks, payment providers and digital asset exchanges, enabling real-time settlement expeditions and lower transaction fees."

Privately held, patented, controlled by a company, and created to cater to banks. XRP is not crypto just like CBDC aren't crypto. You might as well buy Disney Dollars. Governments will like it though as it's a corporate creation and can be controlled, unlike decentralized crypto.

Or go get yourself in line for some nice US Fed coin. Or whatever they are calling it.
