If you’re one of those who continually is in the look for the perfect crypto to put your bets in, Ripple’s XRP may be the answer. The third largest cryptocurrency in the market has been pretty much in the spotlight during the last couple of months because of several reasons. Some of them quite positive, and on the other hand, some negative press have landed in the crypto world about security issues.

But is it possible for Ripple to be the best offer in the market as of now? Where can Ripple get in the coming months? Keep reading, as we discuss the main facts on the company and the price predictions of Ripple for December 2018.

Ripple’s origins

Ripple was founded back in 2012 by Arthur Britto, David Schwartz, and Ryan Fugger. For a whole year, the team worked tirelessly in the creation of OpenCoin and Ripple Labs, the company in charge of the solutions that as of today we know from Ripple, xCurrent, xVia, and xRapid.

Through OpenCoin started the development of the payment protocol, the Ripple Transaction Protocol (RTXP), and later, the design of their own token, the XRP token, the current third largest crypto of the sector by market capitalization, a crypto created as the mold of Bitcoin (BTC).

From 2014 to 2017 the target was to capitalize on the finance sector, a project that started with the experiment of an iPhone application for sending and receiving money instantly between users.

Later on, the payment protocol started to gain strength and became the payment solution for several institutions of the financial world, a field in which Ripple collects a huge success these days.

The first company that embraced the Ripple network as a payment solution for cross-border payments was the German bank Fidor. However, as of now, Ripple has the biggest amount of partnerships in the industry, many of which use their protocols, such as Banco de Santander, Mastercard, American Express, Western Union, and so many others.

Ripple’s consensus

There are two types of systems in the crypto verse, the proof-of-work system, and the proof-of-stake system. Ripple is among the cryptos that work under the first system, or as it is called, the consensus protocol, which to say the least, is the most likely extended amongst renowned cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).

Nevertheless, unlike these two, Ripple has already an amount defined for their crypto supply; and that means that the XRP can’t be mined, and the same way, that none new XRP tokens will be created to change the quantity of the coin.

One of the most distinguished features of the consensus protocol is that it allows the validation of account balances in each transaction deployed in the networks, and like this, double spending is avoided. Automatically, the system will erase any malicious activity implemented by scammy people who intended to send a specific deal to multiple gateways.

The consensus occurs when a transaction gets deployed in the network, and distributed nodes decide by vote what would be the pecking order, a process in which the majority establishes the decision in only 5 seconds.

Ripple’s XRP price prediction for the end of the year

At the moment of writing the price of the XRP token is $0.277 according to Coinmarketcap. However, this price has been mainly influenced by the moves of Bitcoin and the generalized downtrend that the market has had during the whole year.

In this sense, Ripple continues to work on essential relationships and updates for the whole community, as well as for making the crypto get to the top again by the end of this year.

With relation to this, several good sources such as fxstreet, express.co.uk, and investingpr have forecasted that Ripple may get to remarkable heights at the end of the year, hitting the marks of the $8 or 10 dollars, an increase that would represent 40 or 50 times the current price of the token.

So in terms of retribution, the best option would be to buy XRP and hold it till the end of the year as the price increases, a fact that more likely will occur considering the strategies that Ripple is working on, including the integration of its 3 solutions in order to get a mass adoption of the XRP token.

Conclusion

Ripple has proven to be not only a robust and efficient payment platform, but it has also shown the market that it is here to stay in the top no matter what. The XRP token can become the second largest cryptocurrency again in just a matter of months if all goes well, so we all need to be prepared for what is coming.

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

We are now halfway through 2019, and the situation in the crypto space is better than ever in the past year. Numerous cryptos are seeing large gains, often cut by brief periods of stagnation or small corrections, but the overall sentiment is obviously bullish.

Bitcoin sits way above the $8k mark, and while it struggles to go beyond $8,700, it is still trying to grow. Investors and analysts are quite bullish regarding the foreseeable future, and a lot of altcoins are expected to follow BTC in this regard. However, today, we would like to talk about one particular altcoin — TRON (TRX) — as well as why it is likely to go big in June.

TRON’s progress so far

As many people in and out of TRON community know, TRX is not a project that often sits still. It is rich with announcements, particularly when it comes to his CEO, Justin Sun, whose enthusiastic tweets often seem like hype building to many.

However, TRON made some massive progress in 2018, which was the worst year cryptocurrencies have ever seen. This is not something that can be achieved through hype alone, and the project needs to have true quality and value in order to see such massive development in the middle of the longest and harshest crypto winter in…

IOTA

The crypto space is erupting once again, and if popular predictions are correct — the growth is only starting. However, in the vast sea of altcoins that hold the massive potential to go big in the future, we would like to set IOTA aside as one of the coins that might blow up quite soon.

As always, there are no guarantees of this, as the crypto space still lacks regulations, and remains highly volatile. To see proof of this, all you need to do is look at Bitcoin, which goes up by $1,000 within a day, only to slowly drop by $700 in the following week, and then repeat the process. In other words, there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding any project, and that includes IOTA.

However, even with all of that in mind, many are quite optimistic about this particular project, especially after a recent announcement. The announcement in question indicates that IOTA is about to see a massive upgrade. In most cases, this would be more than enough of a reason to expect the coin to start performing better. But, in IOTA’s case, this is nearly a guarantee that it will.

The update is believed to carry a lot of fixes for a lot of problems that traders and investors have been reporting for a while. No crypto is perfect, and since IOTA is…
