In the case of XRP, we believe that the token holds little utility beyond payment of negligible fees and thus is unlikely to maintain and build value in the long-term. While we expect that XRP tokens will continue to see price spikes as Ripple Inc. makes announcements, we don’t believe that the fundamentals of the protocol will build sustained value for XRP.Full review

Big picture: I have nothing against Ripple or XRP. It's not a scam. It may have a killer use case. Just need to acknowledge that more than 50% of XRP is owned by one company, and most trusted nodes are run by that same company, and some assets on ledger can be frozen.Full review

Banks are not going to disappear simply because of Bitcoin and any "revolution" will require 20-30 years to happen. I would argue that protocols like XRP are not an anomaly. They are a reflection of the trade-off between centralization and existing infrastructure. Their perspective is that blockchain is a technology first and foremost and not a wide cloud network like Facebook.Full review
