Following the completion of a 200 million Series C funding that surged the value of Ripple blockchain firm to $10 billion, South Korean Bitcoin developer Jimmy Song has said XRP could see a massive plunge of up to about 98%.

The Bitcoin educator and maximalist made the statement in regards to the recent investment got by Ripple, the company backing XRP, from Tetragon, Japan’s SBI Holdings and Route 66 Ventures, and some others.

Song, in a statement tagged ‘unpopular opinion’, said people doling their funds into the Silicon Valley blockchain enterprise see XRP as their safety net. Nevertheless, the Bitcoin educator furthered that their hope could be dashed.

Jimmy said the value of XRP could fall by 98% at any time, “and there would be enough for Ripple to make them whole.”

Unpopular Opinion:

The people investing in Ripple the company are counting on XRP as their safety net. XRP could drop by 98% and there would be enough for Ripple to make them whole.

The assertion seems like an admonition, but hit XRP investors and enthusiasts very hard. A follower of Jimmy named Dan Hannum said the opinion is rather popular for everyone except XRP bagholders.

Jimmy Song is well known for belittling altcoins. He believes the industry is occupied by Bitcoin and shitcoins rather than altcoins.

Nevertheless, the avid Bitcoin evangelist previously gave a good remark about XRP’s performance in the market. Then, Jimmy said XRP is among the cryptocurrencies that has been performing excellently.

Jimmy classified Dash, Litecoin, XRP, Stellar and Ethereum as cryptocurrency projects that fared well since their entrance into the industry.

In his opinion, the Jimmy felt projects like Feathercoin, Freicoin, Maidsafecoin, Peercoin, Nxt, and Bitshare, among some 4 others have fallen from grace to grass.

“Lesson: shitcoins need a lot of marketing to survive”, Jimmy concluded.
