Additionally, the comment section of the official tweet showed that XRP was one among the most preferred digital currency. Scubaman said:

“Not any digital currency! I’d accept XRP..the greatest digital asset ever created!”

Dragon Master, a Twitterati said:

“Cryptocurrencies right to one of my digital wallets. Instant transfer for a percentage of a penny in many cases. No need for banks, nobody taking a massive fee for slowing down my transfer. Cutting out the middle man is what’s smart, just like #XTZ”

Crypto Wolf, another Twitterati said:

“I am just an old dinosaur when it comes to cryptocurrency,, (in brief) in 2010 my son asked me could I lend him £20 to buy something called bitcoin ?? (what I had no clue about) so I gave him quite a bit more now please buy me @getbabb tokens “

Barnaby Perrin Aldous, an XRP enthusiast said:

“In the past its been cash or transfer, but with reference to future ambitions, my attention is shifting to digital assets. I’m interested and incidentally would like to know more about where @bankofengland stands on the matter”
