'XRP is better than Bitcoin’ says co-founder of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin

The co-founder of the second most popular cryptocurrency, Ethereum, took to Twitter to express his believes that XRP is better than Bitcoin. However, many are convinced that Vitalik was just being sarcastic.

The Russian-Canadian programmer responded to a tweet by Pierre Rochard, a software engineer who runs Bitcoin Advisory.

Rochard said that Bitcoin is the ideal stablecoin and store of value. Further adding that this is 'what peak sound money looks like.'

He added a graphic that compares Bitcoin to itself. Therefor, the graphic shows a flat line that is worth exactly 1 BTC at all times.

Vitalik responded by saying that he thinks Rochard should use XRP, adding that the XRP graphic would look the same and that it is as well 'sound money'.

The co-founder of Ethereum points to the fact that XRP has been adopted by several institutions and signed several partnerships around the world, and that this is the reason why he thinks XRP is better than Bitcoin.

Already back in 2013, Vilatik Buterin had expressed his positive take on the third largest cryptocurrency, XRP.

'Litecoin is perhaps the most prominent out of all the alternatives, its price hovering around $0.07 USD and even slowly increasing over the past six months, but so far the overwhelming majority of merchants – and merchant platforms, for that matter – have seen no reason to pay attention to them. Now, that may finally change with decentralized cryptocurrency’s new kid on the block: Ripple.', Vitalik said.

Obviously the XRP community was more than delighted.

Although to some it is clear as day that Vitalik was being sarcastic.
