What Is The Value Of Xrp On A Given Date?

First, monetary economics argues that if anything will ever reach $1 million in ten years time, it would most likely be gold (whose price reached $1 billion in 1980). Second, although James Crotty was not Ripple’s Chief Scientist when he made his comments in 2011 and 2012 , he must have had some knowledge about Ripple due to his role as an early investor and speaker at their events where they discussed their strategy.

That scenario sounds unlikely but let’s just suppose it did happen. Even if you accept this outlandish suggestion as possible (I don’t), there is no statistical evidence whatsoever against the second argument; indeed even if this scenario were accurate (again, I doubt) it still wouldn’t justify itself with any kind of contrary argument like “XRP
