The XRP community has been engulfed in a heated debate over the future of Ripple-affiliated digital currency, which has experienced its fair share of ups and downs.

The controversy was sparked by a sensationalist post from a crypto analyst, who labeled XRP as a "scam" and declared it "dead" due to its underperformance compared to other altcoins.

Despite the fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) surrounding the coin, the XRP community remains optimistic, with the analyst himself suggesting that XRP could yet see better days, though not everyone will survive the tumultuous market.

Rising FUD and community sentiment

Nick (@NCashOfficial), a well-known figure in the crypto space and self-styled "Crypto Crusader," took to X with a bold declaration: "XRP IS DEAD & A SCAM!"

His post aimed to stress the increasing FUD and negative sentiment within the XRP community due to the cryptocurrency's underperformance despite Ripple's victory.

Nick referenced the ripple effects of the FTX collapse, which many feared would lead to a domino effect toppling major exchanges like Binance and Coinbase. Despite these fears, the market rebounded in January 2023, proving naysayers wrong.

Nick's message to the XRP faithful is clear: Holding XRP is not for the faint of heart, especially during periods of high volatility and bearish sentiment.

He also pointed out the irrational comparison of XRP's performance to other altcoins, noting that the crypto market's nature means there will always be disparities in performance.

Mix of optimism and strategy

Responses from the XRP community to the swirling negativity and scam accusations have been varied but largely optimistic.

Some users emphasized long-term investment strategies and the importance of diversification.

They argue that patience and a broader investment portfolio can mitigate the sting of short-term underperformance.

Others underscore the fundamental value of what Ripple, the company behind XRP, is building. They argue that those who understand the project's goals see the current price as an opportunity rather than a setback.

This sentiment is echoed by some voices who speculate on XRP's potential to bridge stablecoins, hinting at a future global use case that could significantly impact its valuation.
