I really believed in the idea behind Bitcoins from the start, and because I was an early adopter, I made some nice profit.
Now I forecast a big future for Ripple too, but I don't see many ways to turn this into profit. I can start hoarding loads of XRP, but it doesn't seem likely they will become valuable in the future, because as soon as they do, transaction fees will be lowered. Another option is to start a new gateway, and because they're pretty scarce now, it may become one of the popular ones in the future.
Is there any other way I can profit as an early adopter?
