Ripple XRP cryptocurrency has been in the news for most of the current year. It’s been a mix of fact and rumors but it just keeps the industry’s attention. That is not a coincidence. The whole point of XRP is to provide a cryptocurrency for institutional transfers that are safe (as opposed to retail transactions for end users), and the fact is, it’s worked so far. Banks and other financial institutions are buying it and maybe you should as well. Let me tell you why.

The banking industry is going for it

According to Ripple’s plans for XRP, they will be partnering with half of the world’s bankers so they adopt the XRP crypto coin. This is not random. As stated before, XRP has always been meant to be a transfer tool between institutions instead of a coin for end users. That’s what Ripple meant, and that is exactly what is happening.

Ripple is just as safe as bitcoin or any other alt-currency but it’s much faster, and transactions are cheaper. The sheer speed and convenience it offers can change the game itself, keep an eye open for it.

Ripple’s processor platform is popular!

It’s handled more than a billion bucks over the last week! We are not exaggerating, everybody want’s a piece of Ripple’s processing platform. If you want credibility and stability just think a billion dollars! This achievement has come through Ripple’s partnership with Tencent Holding Limited (that happened earlier this month) but it’s real.

These transactions are both domestic and international. But the volume is huge and it just confirms how reliable XRP has become. And you should probably become part of it.

A Bank a week strategy of Ripple

More than a hundred banks are currently testing Ripple’s rapid software. It will make them liquid in no time at all. Ripple wants to have about two hundred banks in total, which means they get a new bank every week giving XRP a go. And they’re getting them. So, if Ripple will have its way, a local bank near you will be in the coin’s ecosystem before this year ends.

The xRapid system is very versatile and easy to implement so it fits into any local bank’s system quickly. Some critics say that this kind of integration into the system will make the coin lose value, but the market has disagreed so far. In the end, more transactions and increased demand can only mean this crypto coin will be more valuable. You decide on your own.

Unparalleled transaction speed

You probably know already that doing transactions through the mostly used cryptocurrencies takes time. But did you know that XRP’s transaction speed is faster than even VISA?

Speed combined with reliability is making XRP a trusted currency the world needs and more banks are going for it every week.

Remittances: XRP, not Paypal

Remittances are a huge piece of the market and the preferred way to do them over the last few years has been Paypal. That is changing. As banks realize how quick, cheap, and reliable XRP is – they’re just going for it for their international transactions.

In fact, Ripple has been so successful at this that they are now being sued (by PayPal, yes, when you are sued by a competitor that means that are afraid of your ideas) and investors are just paying attention to find out how it plays out. You should do as well, of course. The fact remains: XRP is useful, efficient, and it’s done nothing wrong. It’s just outperforming traditional financial transactions and the establishment has nothing to answer with but lawsuits.

If you are a Paypal user, you already know what financial tech and blockchain tech can do for you. Well, XRP is just like that. It’s just bigger and more convenient and it won’t be long before you feel the benefits.

Ripple wants you (the users) to hold XRP

Financial and money markets are notoriously unstable. That’s where every economic crisis has started. Ripple wants you to avoid that kind of pitfall by owning some XRP currency. It’s already becoming a world standard so you can’t fail, and as it grows, its value will surge.

Banks are being cautious and observing what happens. But they are also demanding more XRP so scarcity will bring increased value along, and you could benefit from it. By Q2 direct conversion from XRP to fiat will be available, and then you will have plenty of reasons to celebrate. Join in now.

Digital currency marketplace and Ripple’s XRP

Blockchain technology is on your side. It makes transactions so much cheaper, which users are just starting to realize now. It’s so dramatic that banks and smartphone financials could just change bigtime soon.

Just think about this: Starbucks, MoneyGram, Western Union are already in Ripple’s pocket. That means they could be in your pocket. Do you want to be in or to be left out?

The crypto community is still waiting for the US SEC to approve Bitcoin ETFs, with speculation which application might get approval being one of the hottest topics in 2018. However, come 2019, the US government shutdown dragged on, and the Bitcoin ETF request which had the most potential to see a grant got withdrawn by the very companies that submitted the application.

While the question of BTC ETF remains hanging in the air, blockchain-focused ETFs seem to be a different matter entirely. In a recent announcement by an independent investment managed firm called Invesco, the company has stated that it was about to launch the largest blockchain-focused ETF in the world. They managed to go through with this plan, and the ETFs have reached the London Stock Exchange today, March 11th.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has made numerous headlines recently due to his overly-publicized divorce, which shows all signs of being one of the most expensive ones — if not THE most expensive one — in modern history. According to estimates, it might cost him as much as $70 billion, which will make his soon-to-be-ex-wife the richest woman in human history.

However, as the process continues to unfold, many have started wondering if things may have ended up differently for Bezos if he turned to Bitcoin for help.

Bitcoin as a divorce tool?

In the last several years — since Bitcoin and other cryptos hit fame — many have started turning to BTC during their divorce proceedings. In fact, it can even be said that using the largest cryptocurrency in this way has become a new trend. The trend has been gaining so much strength that numerous law companies started including advice on what to do in regards to Bitcoin as part of their websites.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem. For example, if there is even a suspicion of a spouse having undisclosed holdings appears during the divorce process, it might be enough to impact the final decision of the judge. In other words, even if there is a complete lack of evidence, but…

In recent years, digital cash systems known as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin have exploded into the public eye. A blend of cash and stocks, their use and value has grown exponentially. In 2017, the IRS decided to focus great effort on taxing them. In theory, this should be as simple as calculating taxes on any other type of property, bond, or other assets. Cryptocurrency, however, presents a unique challenge. The full extent of one person’s crypto activity can stretch across dozens of platforms and take a variety of different forms. This makes it difficult to gather all of this information cohesively, much less begin the seemingly- complicated process of reporting it.

These three tips should help anyone looking to legally report their crypto activity to figure out where to start.

Documentation is key!

There are dozens of different “exchanges” individuals can use to change their cash into crypto. When the flat currency is changed into cryptocurrency at the exchange, you establish your cost basis. This makes this data crucial when you begin the process of reporting.  Those who have used a variety of different exchanges should keep detailed records of everywhere that they made trades. Once tax season arrives, most exchanges will allow users to view their entire trading history with that exchange. This information will be necessary later to complete taxes.
