Ripple is to Bitcoin as the Indianapolis 500 is to walking down to the local pub.

You can't afford the car you're driving, and are forced to rely on the good intentions of a major corporate sponsor.

You get to drive around in circles really fast, without ever appearing to get anywhere.

...and you can't have a beer while you're doing it.

It's a money-grab.  It's about as useful as any pre-mined altcoin.

Ripple has the potential to supersede Bitcoin and actually archive the thing Bitcoiners are dreaming.

The reason it is so widely attacked is the fear of Bitcoin investors to lose their profits. They only see XRP as some sort of Bitcoin alternative (well it's not but as for the investment part it might as well be) and then continue to bad-mouth the rest of Ripple.

It's going to be interesting if fully open source.
