What about ripple?

Is it interesting?
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

yes, it's very interesting, but it has many skeptics and hurdles to overcome (e.g. labeled as centralized scam)

I'm interested in the Ripple protocol, since it focuses on exchange, rather than specie. Which is in point of fact the entire point of money.

My first concern regarding Bitcoin is about transactions confirmation time.
 It's going to be hard to spread btc as major virtual coin if you need to wait 1 hour or more for complete payments.

However ripple's drawbacks are centralization and has no fixed amount of coins (inflation issue).

I would look into bitmessage and open transaction before ripple, it could quite easily make it redundant.

A fully premined coin - The philosophy is quite incompatible with what we expect with a cryptocoin.
