Notably, XRP stood higher with 60% while ADA catching the second spot with 24%, BTC as the third position with 12% and ETH with 4% respectively. However, its quite surprising because the poll compared XRP with the leading cryptocurrencies which also included Bitcoin – but crypto enthusiasts preferred XRP than BTC. At the moment, the value of XRP is up with 2.18% over the past 24 hours – trading with the value $0.32.
Considering the similar comparison of XRP with BTC, blockdata reveals Ripple is faster and cheaper than the most popular remittance platforms. The comment by Ran NeuNer, host of CNBC’s Cryptotrader is obviously positive towards the third largest cryptocurrency, XRP. His comment was based on the transaction times that many remittance platforms like Western Union, Money Gram, Remitly and Trasnfast takes.
