XRP’s adoption is gaining traction

Garlinghouse claims that the adoption of XRP is rapidly growing despite all the FUD. MoneyGram recently started using xRapid for conducting transactions as a result of a major partnership with Ripple.

We are seeing more momentum than we’ve ever had about using XRP.

Xpring also serves to streamline the adoption of XRP. During an interview, Garlinghouse mentioned content monetization startup Coil, which received an eye-popping $265 mln worth of investment from Ripple.

XRP vs. Bitcoin

The Ripple boss has reiterated that he’s long on Bitcoin, saying that the coin that started it all can act as a store of value. However, he doesn’t see BTC succeeding as a means of payment due to its scaling issues, and that where XRP comes to the rescue.

Skin in the game

As expected, Chatterley also pressed Garlinghouse on controversial XRP sales. He explained that it’s “not in their best interest” to inflict selling pressure on XRP.

Indeed, when XRP hit its current ATH, Garlinghouse was worth more than $10 bln, which made him one of the richest people in the US. His fortune has dwindled to $500 mln after Ripple’s native token tanked by almost 90 percent.

In the XRP community, Ripple is the largest owner. The point I have made is that we are the most interested party in the success of XRP.

He also denied that Ripple can influence the price of XRP in the lights of damning reports.

The crypto analyst @CryptoMichNL believes that there are two paths ahead of Bitcoin at the moment. If it fails to recover to $8,300, he says on his Twitter page, then the market should be ready for the flagship coin to drop and find support at the $7,800 or $7,300 levels.

Whichever way it goes, ‘continuation of the ranging on either of the levels is going to occur’.

The analyst tweeted this forecast twice with an hour pause.
