@Sebastian has previously pointed out, rightly so, that Circle may be the most realistic competitor to Ripple at the moment. Seemingly working backwards, Circle worked on creating a peer to peer value transfer service, and is now looking to integrate crypto into that service. Part of the argument about XRP being valuable is that it'd make it difficult for another company to create a crypto that we somehow trust, but if that said company had already built a platform people trust, and then issued their own currency, then flipped the switch, it's conceivable they could usurp quite a bit of market from XRP. Particularly if they go the banking route, which they seem to be doing. Obviously Ripple is going enterprise, not Peer-to-Peer so that could be the primary difference. Companies are going to vie for control of various customer bases so we should be on the lookout for their possible routing strategies.
