There are some important positive points about Ripple. first, it is trusted by many banks. Second, there are existing tokens which may be the reason behind having no inflation. Finally, since the value of XRP is dependent on the number of banks using it, the more banks joining the more profit the investors make. Although there are many positive aspects, it being an open-source puts it at risk of being hacked, since every hacker would try to hack it once they have the code. Who knows some of them may even succeed. Plus, many respectable banks are still going through the testing stage, and not as many banks are using the actual money on the platform. One last negative aspect of Ripple is that it can freeze the transaction.
