Can XRP Surpass Bitcoin?

Only the strongest may succeed in a highly competitive world of crypto currency. Such factors as age and speed do not control the cost of token or a coin, although these factors have great impact on trading volume. The world of crypto currencies is also famous for its inability to remain stable.
XRP is unlikely to surpass BTC, however, it is possible. Analysis of Ripple’s XRP and BTC prices shows that the coin needs to increase its current capitalization by 13 times.
Regardless to the fact that Ripple fails to keep in pace in terms of its trading price, volume, market capitalization. The coin’s way is quite safe, it creates exposure via some unique and major partnerships.
That’s why XRP can flourish, regardless to this inability to land on Coinbase’s list. If XRP manages to support the same level of stability, it is not known what it will achieve.
XRP remained quite stable even in November, so Ran Neu-Ner “warned” crypto currency traders that XRP was likely to bring more profit than BTC and BCH.
Not only Ran Neu-Ner turned to XRP as to the first coin: many users also start to trust Ripple’s ability to dominate in the crypto currency market. It’s highly possible that XRP will surpass Bitcoin and get ranked 1st.
