The dispute began with reports of the famous trader Tony Weiss. He criticized XRP and stated that Aldon slower world famous payment system PayPal.

Wake me when XRP will be faster than @PayPal. While it is not only slower, but has additional disadvantages in the form of market risks and high volatility.

Tony Weiss has replied here. According to him, Bitcoin’s many advantages amid Ripple. It is the impossibility of confiscation, limited the maximum number of coins, resistance to censorship and other advantages.


Compared to Bitcoin , and a Ethereum, Ripple is really deprived of the main advantages of decentralization. Aldona network is completely centralized and not consistent with the basic beliefs of the majority of cryptoendoliths.
