Ether Flippening XRP for Christmas?

Ether was displaced by XRP as the 2nd crypto by market cap about three months ago (Sept. 21, 2018). Looks like ETH now surging to reclaim its number two spot. In my humble opinion, a centralized egold-like scheme ought not to have a place among even the top five cryptos. The crypto community should rally around decentralized solutions that have broad and deep developer talent and network effects. I just don't think XRP cuts the mustard.
