A few days ago, we sent a newsletter to our readers, "Don't sleep on Ethereum," and today we should also urge everyone not to sleep on Ripple (XRP). Ripple is the worlds largest centralized remittance network created by Ripple Labs, and they often gets criticized for their centralized blockchain. But the XRP token has suddenly shot up 47% today from $0.334 to $0.494 in under 10 hours. The market cap of Ripple currently stands around $20.1 billion with 24 hour volume spiking from $3.8 billion to $8.5 billion. XRP is up 67% in the past week and 83% in the past month. Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse may be a critic of Bitcoin (BTC) for its speed and other qualities, but he still wants the crypto industry to grow. "I don’t view what Ripple is doing as somehow competitive with Bitcoin," he said, "I want Bitcoin to be successful.” With Ethereum up 38% in a month and Ethereum 2.0 release around the corner in Q1 2021, will this spike by XRP kick off altseason winter or will Bitcoin's dominance continue?
