Everyone whom have been watching the cryptocoins market would know XRP (Ripple) dominated the altcoins trade volume and market cap. It has been second place just behind bitcoin. And you think Ethereum (ETH) will take over Bitcoin? it cannot even take on Ripple XRP, how can ETH take on XRP?
Well, Ripple (XRP) as I know it we cannot mine it, and everytime a transactions taken place the coins get destroyed and the volume of XRP will become less and less thus making the value increased. However you can mine altcoins and ask to be paid with XRP, for example mining scrypt ethereum but instead get paid via XRP instead, it just a conversion between XRP to BTC to ETH … and so on.
Indeed ETH got beat up by XRP and can’t seem to get up to take over XRP and most likely not, it’s a different technology with XRP.
