Ripple (XRP) should thrive, along with Ethereum (ETH) and a few other top 20 currencies. Ten years from now, Ripple and Ethereum will be known by most, and if Bitcoin can figure out its scaling issues (which by the sounds of it, it has), Bitcoins future is looking better and better. Expect many ups and downs in this new digital currency market, but just like the stock exchange, the overall value should increase over time, so long as it stays relevant. Ethereum and Ripple both have amazing futures (due to their use-case).
