The good news: more opportunities to receive ripples for free.
The bad news: XRP price is probably going to drop like a stone.

Upcoming: Ripples for Email List and Developers
May 10, 2013

It has been quite a month for math-based currencies. There has been a flood of new interest so we have doubled our efforts to keep up with the rising tide. We are overdue with some important updates, but the time has come.

Announcing....

At the end of May, we will begin a ripple (aka XRP) giveaway to everyone who signed up for our email list on or before May 9, 2013. Tens of thousands of folks will be getting ripples! We will be distributing ripples for this giveaway in batches. Everyone who is eligible will receive their giveaway email by the end of the month.

Thereafter, we will start a Developer XRP Giveaway. This giveaway will be designed specifically for software developers with the goal of introducing the Ripple protocol to them. If you are a coder interested in our developer programs, we recommend you subscribe to our developer email list and follow us on Github.

If you have more questions or want to chat with us, you can always find us in the Ripple forum or on Twitter.
Thanks!

I hope it drops like a stone.  I wasn't expecting it to be as expensive as it is now for another few years.  Wink

It's the Bitcoin-like currency within the Ripple payment system.

What do you think a reasonable price for a ripple would be?

Almost nothing. It's a closed source transport media for crypto currency. It has no 'value' in itself. Well, except when I want to sell the ones I get in the giveaway of course.

The notion of value is subjective. Things have value because we value them. If the ripple network becomes widely used, then XRP will retain some value most likely. Right now, XRP are in demand and so they have value because people are willing to pay for them.
