Bitcoin vs. XRP

Ran Neuner, host of the TV show “Crypto Trader” on CNBC and founder of OnChain Capital, explained via Twitter that crypto investors should distance themselves from Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash and invest exclusively in XRP.

In the tweet, he emphasized the effects of the Bitcoin Cash hash war: “These hash wars show why everyone should get rid of BTC and BCH and just put all their money into XRP,” tweete Neuner. Within the Twitter crypto community, the tweet sparked a lot of discussion. Also, the community is not sure if Neuner really meant the post seriously or just made a joke. In the past, Neuner was more likely to be noticed for describing Ripple’s XRP tokens as useless and superfluous in the Ripple network.

However, the numbers speak clearly for an investment in XRP. As the Twitter user Christian Schneider stated, the XRP price is very good in comparison to the 17th November 2017 by +113%. Bitcoin, on the other hand, fell by -29%, Ethereum by -46% and Bitcoin Cash by -64%.

BTC won’t be around in 10 years. Just one 51% attack on that chain and that’s game over for life. Proof of work is not a solution to the double spend problem, it’s a temporary solution.

Obviously XRP will still be around as it’s a distributed agreement protocol. Bye BTC.


The latest figures from DappReview show that decentralized apps in the Tron network have more transaction volume than Ethereum and EOS. The most popular dApps are gaming and gambling dApps, which account for over 99% of all transactions.


Professor Joseph Liu received an award from the Australian Computer Society (ACS) at the end of October 2018, honouring his recent achievements with the title “ICT Researcher of the Year”. Liu is the creator and development leader of the ring signature algorithm – a key technology used in Monero – which he originally conceived and published in a paper in 2004.

RingCT (as it is colloquially known) has since become best known for its implementation in Monero, the best-known anonymous crypto currency. On his website, Liu recalls that his invention was used without recognition within Monero.

when I googled “Application of (linkable) ring signature”, suddenly came up the word “Monero”. By then, I know this cryptocurrency (currently ranked #10) deploys my PhD thesis as their core technology (they call it RingCT)!!! (They didn’t tell me, didn’t acknowledge me, and of course didn’t give me any reward!)

Liu is currently a lecturer at Monash University in Australia and also works as a consultant for the crypto project Hcash.

But I have to say, I have nothing affiliated to Monero. Currently I’m working towards a new cryptocurrency Hcash instead!
