We dive deep into Ripple and explore the differences between it and other cryptocurrencies. Ripple carries with it some negative connotations that are counter to the underlying decentralized movement powering the blockchain and cryptocurrency community. We find out how Ripple is tied to big banks and the implications this has on the cryptocurrency community going forward.
One of the less than favorable aspects of Ripple is that the core development team behind the cryptocurrency has the power to freeze individual accounts. Our theory is that Ripple is a cryptocurrency that was developed with large institutions in mind, and not necessarily something that will be favored by the community at large.
