Digital asset investor Kevin Cage has posted a tweet on this price plummet, saying that temporary XRP price swings do not matter, since the Ripple ecosystem being created around the coin is still immature.

However, Cage insists that the world is in need of this fintech solution.

If you actually understand $XRP & the Ecosystem being built around it, these temporary price swings before maturity shouldn't matter whatsoever.

The world NEEDS this solution.

You invested in the future, act like it.

Your job is easy. Live your life and know what's coming.

Anthony ‘Pomp’ would not buy XRP or TRX

On February 25, famous Bitcoin investor Anthony Pompliano (aka ‘Pomp’) talked all things Bitcoin in the CNN studio with Julia Chatterley – the host who previously interviewed Ripple's Brad Garlinghouse and Tron CEO Justin Sun.

Replying to a question, Pomp stated that he would rather buy some tokenized traditional assets than XRP or TRX, since, he believes, these coins are not investment tools or a store of value, unlike Bitcoin.

Pompliano views those as utility coins and would not include them in his investment portfolio.
