  • From CryptoBull2020:

    #ADA has proven my right in everything I’ve been saying: those who bought near the bottom and held until now made over 4,000%. More than anyone else. #XRP will get the same gains. So will $EOS and #ETN. Buy and hold is the best and safest way to make money in this market!

  • From MackAttackXRP:

    There are many coins that do well. The SEC is why my beloved XRP is stepping on the brakes. In the meantime the battle continues, I am 100% committed to XRP as I see its proper use for 1000 reasons. XRP is ready to wake up for a long Bull summer.

  • From XRPeuphoria_:

    My plan was never to hold ADA indefinitely (FLR will soon eat its lunch anyway)…2 mo ago I bought $3,500 worth…today I cashed out and that investment netted me another 50k XRP and another 1.5 mil TEL…ADA can continue to run, I’m content with my returns…😊
