Without any doubt, one of the most robust tokens in the crypto sphere right now is Ripple (XRP). At the moment of writing, Ripple is positioned at the third place in the market charts, coinmarketcap establishes the price of the coin at 0.59654 against the US dollar, with a volume of $308,576,000, and a decrease of 3.8% in value over the last 24 hours.

The token has managed to step solidly in the industry; thanks to the development of several partnerships that have granted the company with great popularity in the financial sector.

In this matter, Ripple has recently tested its platform RippleNet, showing remarkable results in the aspects of transaction speed, scalability, and cost reductions. The act was accompanied by essential corporations of the finance industry such as MUFG Bank, Ltd. (MUFG Bank), Mitsubishi Corporation (MC), Standard Chartered Bank (Standard Chartered), and Bank of Ayudhya PCL (Krungsri).

Each of the companies mentioned above announced on its webpage pointing the test and efficiency of the platform, a fact that very possibly will create a positive impact for the token in the near future. Let’s see how these endorsements can benefit the third largest coin in the industry:

MUFG Bank

The financial institution is an elite banking organization based in Japan, and with a presence in more than 50 countries across the globe. The company offers a considerable extension of product and services for businesses on a global scale.

MUFG bank is related to the Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. (MUFG), an organization with headquarters in Japan, and around 2000 locations in the world. It possesses at least 150,000 members and provides services related to the banking such as asset management, credit cards, securities, and leasing.

Krungsri

Krungsri is also a Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group’s (MUFG) member, the largest financial organization in Japan. It has a 74-year trajectory and is currently among the top 5 organizations related to finance in Thailand. Krungsri offers as well banking-related services through 700 branches and at least 35,000 service points at a national scale. The firm Is the biggest card issuer of Thailand and the main supporter of Fintech projects in the region.

Mitsubishi Corporation (MC)

Mitsubishi Corporation was established back on July 1, 1954. As the company describes itself on its website, they are “engaged in a wide variety of activities on a global scale.” The company creates and market a broad repertory of products “including energy, metals, machinery, chemicals and living essentials”.

The same way, they are involved with different activities in the industry such as natural resources and infrastructure investment.

Standard Chartered

The Standard Chartered Bank is one of the biggest of the banking services with a 150 years trajectory in the industry. The company regularly moves in more than sixty markets of the sector, possessing at least one thousand branches and more than three thousand ATMs. Besides, the company is listed in different exchanges among we can name exchanges from Bombay, Hong Kong, and London.

The result of these relationships

In the frame of a recent test of RippleNet, alliances of these kinds represent a considerable possibility for the token to hit heights never seen before. And of course, these four are not the only partnerships that Ripple managed to make recently; these are just a few of the most important ones that can turn the things around for the coin quickly. However, more, such as the National Bank of Kuwait is already on Ripple’s boat too.

So, as the payment platform Ripple is developing gets added to these organizations to improve cross-border transactions at full, it, at the same time, will broaden the chances of Ripple relations with the fiat world, a fact that undoubtedly can change the future of the coin dramatically (in a positive way).

With these enormous successes, massives partnerships, we can even expect the Ripple (XRP) to take over Mastercard and Visa. Or perhaps, we could see Amazon teaming up with the Ripple for cross-borders payment soon? You never know.

Many of us hear that institutions are buying tons of BTC, XRP, and other top 20 cryptocurrencies.  The thing is how much truth really is there to that when we cannot even see the market moving in any direction other than on a downtrend. Right now, many do not know this but there is the OTC or the over the counter exchanges that exist. These exchanges like OTC trading desks do the trades off the market hense over the counter. This means that it functions in the same way the black market functions as when you sell these items it is essentially off the books so to speak.

Why does all this matter? Have any of you seen this VIDEO with Tekka Tiwari. Here he explains what I love to say as listening with your eyes. He goes on to show how Wall Street legally manipulates the market, they throw out in the media and go into the limelight and bash the said stocks, or bitcoin.

For a cryptocurrency project, getting their coin to Coinbase is one of their biggest goals. However, the popular exchange has become infamous over the years for only accepting a handful of top-ranking coins, while other ones were deemed unsafe for listing for various reasons. In the first half of 2018, however, Coinbase decided to distance itself from this old way of looking at things, and it has even announced that it will look into numerous altcoins, in order to locate and list the best among them.

Since then, the exchange has kept its word, and while it did not add dozens of new coins, they still did open up to a few projects, such as 0x and even Zcash.

However, for all this time, there was no mention of XRP, a cryptocurrency formerly known as Ripple, which is currently the second largest coin by market cap. Despite high demand, constant requests, and alike — Coinbase did not even consider adding XRP.

That is, until several days ago, when numerous reports of Coinbase considering another group of altcoins emerged. While the XRP community was very excited to see XRP listed as a candidate for a potential listing, many believe that it is still not going to happen.

Why Coinbase doesn’t want to add XRP?

As mentioned, the XRP community has been asking for the addition of XRP for…

As 2018 is getting close to its end, a lot of crypto investors are turning their gaze towards the future. Considering the crypto bearish trend that has dominated this entire year, not to mention two big market crashes, it is of no surprise that everyone is more than ready to leave these harsh events behind.

However, a few questions still remain unanswered — what to expect in 2019? Is the situation going to change, or will there be just more of the same? Is investing now, when the prices are low, a good idea? These are the issues on every investor’s mind right now.

What to expect in 2019 in terms of crypto value?

Understandably, after a year such as 2018, expectations of the future are quite high. The crypto scene is still in its infancy, as many analysts have stated numerous times. Add a few more issues, such as regulatory uncertainty, mistrust coming from institutional investors, and constant hacks, scams, and theft that have been a significant factor in this and previous years, and it’s no wonder that the market keeps crashing.

However, there is more to it than that. Due to high volatility and no real control over cryptocurrencies, a massive bull run of 2017 brought cryptos to heights that were not supposed to be reached that early. Because of that, some analysts claim that, what…
