Recently president Trump and treasury secretary steven mnuchin both said they are not fans of Libra, Bitcoin and other cryptos.
This makes sense in regards to anything that threatens the U.S.$ but there is one cryptocurrency - that many in the cryptosphere have droned on about not being an actual cryptocurrency for years - XRP.
From almost the beginning there's been virtually non stop FUD directed at XRP for this reason. Mostly the claim is XRP is not decentralized, or its the bankers coin, premined and so on.
Maybe these claims are true, or maybe not but looking at the entire cryptomarket in terms of which one or combination of a few will enhance the U.S.$ on the world stage?
The answer is clear XRP and Ripple tech. If anyone thinks the U.S. is behind in terms of finding the best solution(s) to remain the #1 world reserve currency and isnt already aware of the advantages the blockchain provides im not sure what to tell ya.
Ofcourse there are other arguments such as what will the replacement for the U.S.$ look like when it does come, but we are probably a decade(s) or more away from that so in the meantime my bet is on the crypto that is already moving U.S.$ FAR more efficiently than other options. Need proof? Xrapid-Moneygram and other financial institutions that are signed.
Also interesting that during mr. Mnuchins conference on the matter he was more or less anti-Libra/Btc and out of all the companies he could have mentioned in a positive light he mentioned Moneygram. A company that a number of days before signed with Ripple. Considering there are competitors of Moneygram that are more visable / profitable and he still chose to mention Moneygram is in my opinion a little hint....
Everyone here is aware Ripple is already connected to Fed faster payments and the vast number of other connections - matter of time until something much bigger comes to light.
Not investment advice.
