I like this article by Nathan Reiff: Ripple Offers Unique Transaction Processing

One of the key elements of the Ripple structure which may be able to set it apart from other cryptocurrencies is its payment and transaction infrastructure. Ripple eliminates time delays in order to ensure that transactions can be settled in real time. This keeps transaction costs down and helps to open up new revenue opportunities for banks and other customers. The issues of transaction processing time and fees are key to the cryptocurrency industry, particularly as Bitcoin struggles with these challenges. In Bitcoin's case, the issue is one of scaling, as the original code for the currency, much of which is still in use, has not properly accounted for the size of the current customer base and transaction load. If an alternative like Ripple can attract enough attention in the broader digital currency market, it may possess the infrastructure to displace a behemoth like Bitcoin. For the time being, however, the Ripple rally has yet to take place.

many people, especially old-timers, are probably very keen to see xrp being used as intended/designed on a large scale by enterprises for forex/settlement (yes in part due to xrp gain but also actually more to do with wanting to see this game-changing technology in action)

in fact the inverse can be true: some folks aren't excited about the recent price pump, precisely because it's speculative money (or at least we think so) and not it seems due to institutional usage (yet)

anyway not complaining, just giving a view from the sidelines...
