If you’re new to crypto or have been around since the beginning, read this. This message applies to all the misinformation about all cryptos, not just XRP.
**Tribalism against each other doesn’t help us in our battle to replace the centralized systems we have today.**
If you really do some research you would know that the [development of XRP](https://xrpl.org/history.html) began before the company *Ripple* was established. Do your own research and stop relying on crypto YouTubers that could be biased towards the cryptos they hold(ex. Bitcoin maximalists). You’re playing **the telephone game** when you spread information like that with no evidence linked. There are a lot of people new to the crypto space, and they don’t need to be told trendy lies about certain cryptos. Cite some sources and let them form their own opinion.
[XRP is a decentralized](https://www.financemagnates.com/cryptocurrency/interview/xrp-is-not-centralized-ripple-svp-addresses-crypto-community-criticism/) crypto, and is [more decentralized than Bitcoin](https://ethereumworldnews.com/ripple-ceo-xrp-decentralized–bitcoin–ethereum/amp/). XRP is solving real world issues by settling transactions in less than 5 seconds, and with fees that are less than a penny. In my opinion, I just see Bitcoin as a store of value, which is a good use case.
Let’s stop the tribalism with the cryptos we hold. We shouldn’t be arguing which crypto is better, because they are all trying to solve some sort of issue, or issues. It should be us versus the centralized systems we have today, so that we can have decentralized systems tomorrow.
