One Does Not Equal the Other

Ripple’s Success may not Make XRP the Lucrative Investment Many Expect it to.

What to look for

  • What is the moving average daily transaction volume in USD of XRP?
  • What is the average fee for a Ripple transaction over time?
  • How much lower is the average fee for a Ripple transaction versus traditional remittance payment channels over time?

Why These Metrics Are Important

  • The moving average daily transaction volume should be trending up over time as an indicator of its spreading adoption.
  • The average fee for a transaction should be coming down over time. Indicating scale and efficiency as it matures.
  • The average fee for a Ripple transactions needs to be lower than the incumbents to displace them. The percent its lower than the incumbents is important.
  • Presuming Ripple is able to lower its fees. If the incumbents react by lowering theirs. It erodes Ripples competitive advantage and lowers their chances for success.
