On Saturday (17 November 2018), Ran Neu-Ner, the host of CNBC Africa’s “Crypto Trader”show, while commenting on the “Bitcoin Cash Civil War,” made the following comment in jest: “These hash wars highlight why everyone should dump BTC and BCH and just put all their money into XRP!”

It should be noted, right from the start, that Ran Neu-Ner, who is the co-founder Onchain Capital, “a fund management business that offers eligible investors professional portfolio management services within the emerging Blockchain and CryptoAsset class,” made this joke as a tweet on his private Twitter account and not on the air or as a representative of CNBC:

When one crypto enthusiast (Bruce Stewart) told him via a reply tweet that he was “giving financial without a license,” Ran replied: “I have a license.”

Although Ran’s tweet was most likely intended as a joke, it is true that his appreciation for XRP and its highly knowledgeable and passionate community has grown enormously over the past few months.

Earlier today, he revealed the results of a Twitter poll he conducted yesterday; this poll asked his followers if they were to be given a gift worth $10,000 that they had to keep for ten years, in what form they would choose to accept it, and the four options were: Bitcoin, XRP, BCH SV, and American Airline Miles:

As you can see from the tweet above, so far, XRP is the top choice, and leading Bitcoin by 13%.

Although this has been a bad week for most cryptocurrencies, XRP managed to overtake Ether (ETH) to become the second-most valuable cryptocurrency.
