Ripple’s XRP the best transaction cryptocurrency: Weiss Ratings

According to a poll carried out by Weiss Ratings on Twitter, Ripple’s XRP is the fastest digital asset transacted across exchanges. The other cryptos in the poll included, Bitcoin and Ethereum. Confirming transaction slows down the process in case of major cryptos like Bitcoin and Ethereum. On the other hand, Ripple’s XRP takes just a few seconds to move money from one exchange to the other since there’s no need of confirming transactions.
