For many days there have been lively implications that Ripple is soon to partner up with Apple Inc, one of the biggest giants in the tech industry, which could possibly sky-rocket Ripple. All XRP holders and enthusiasts will be happy to know that, in a way, the popularly talked-about partnership has indeed come to life once again after having Apple integrating Ripple’s Interledger technology more than a month ago. Apparently, Apple decided to add XRP to their application for iOS especially designed for tracking stocks and stock exchanges. Prior to this news, it was announced that Ripple just got accepted by Propy Inc, which has added XRP as one of the available payment options for their users.

Apple Adds Ripple

Although Apple Inc. didn’t add Ripple as a payment method for all products in Apple Store, Ripple still managed to acquire a piece of the tech magnum, as Apple Inc. decided to add XRP to one of their applications.

Apparently, Ripple has just become a part of Apple family once again, as Apple added XRP as a payment method for their iOS Stocks App.

iOS Stocks is an application available in Apple store that allows users to track stocks as well as enabling stock exchanges, and as of today, Ripple has become one of the payment methods available on this application.

That is how after using the XRP ledger for updating Apple Pay, one of the first mobile payment applications, back in April, which brought into a question whether Apple will be getting back for XRP for yet another project, which occurred only a month later with the latest addition of XRP to the iOS Stocks app.

XRP has been added to the mentioned application by Apple alongside with 10 trading pairs, among which users are able to find EUR, USD and BTC alongside with JPY, CAD, GBP, ETH, and INR.

Hopefully, during the next month, Apple will find yet another use for Ripple, XRP and the technology behind this digital asset.

Propy Adds Ripple

Alongside with being added by Apple to their application iOS Stocks, Propy Inc, a prominent service that helps their users find a great property in the area of Silicon Valley, which is said to be offering the last big pieces of property that are available in this area.

The mentioned properties could have been purchased in BTC and ETH by far, as Propy previously added the two best cryptos in accordance with the global coin ranking list, and now the team behind this service has gone forward with adding XRP as well.

That means that XRP will now be available for Propy users, alongside with Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Ripple tweeted about this event, stating that the team behind XRP is happy to announce that Propy users will now be able to purchase their property with XRP units as of today.

It seems that this “global real-time settlement” is constantly under the spotlight of great news, especially when it comes to mass adoption.

How is Ripple doing at the Current Moment?

Although Ripple has been down by almost -2% only 8 hours prior to the time of this writing, we can see XRP rising up against the dollar at this moment while trading in the green.

You are probably presuming that XRP went up thanks to the latest announcement of having XRP being added by Apple and Propy to their applications for stocks and property trading; however, the latest rise in its price is actually a consequence of a revamped market.

Apparently, after having the majority of currencies trading on shaky legs for days, trading back and forth in the red then back in the green, we can now witness a smooth rebound as the market is trading in the green while the majority of currencies are going up against the dollar.

Whichever the case, Ripple has brought us great news during the course of a pretty brief time, so besides thriving in mass adoption, we can see it slowly rising back up against the dollar by 1.97%.

In addition to trading in the green against this fiat currency, XRP is also going up in oppose to BTC by 1.32%.

Following the latest change in the market, XRP can now be traded at the price of 0.62$ per one unit, hopefully heading closer to its record price of 3.65$ per one unit thanks to the Apple and Propy adoption of XRP.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

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.

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
