Bitcoin Cash and Ripple have been added to the service offer of one of the fastest growing companies in Europe, Revolut. Revolut started out nearly three years ago as a startup company set to offer a different type of banking services, that way representing an independent banking company.

Now that Bitcoin Cash and Ripple, fourth and third-best currencies are being sponsored by Revolut, we are interested in finding out whether this occasion can affect the expansion of BCH and XRP, which is probably the next goal set for all major cryptocurrencies and digital assets.

Revoult Decides to Add Bitcoin Cash and Ripple

Revolut started off as a small startup company with a plan to become an independent banking service firm offering simple but much-needed payment methods on a global level. They started out under the name Revolut nearly three years ago in 2015 and were soon able to reach proportions of a massive company.

In addition to becoming a banking service company, Revolut is also proud to have been proclaimed as the fastest growing company in Europe, with massive odds of having a global expansion, which would naturally be the next step for Revolut.

In that spirit, Revolut is having funding rounds, with their last successful funding round bringing them 250 million dollars in revenue. With the latest addition of 250 million dollars, Revolut now has 1.7 billion dollars in market cap, supporting its status as the fastest growing company in Europe.

Since they have had a successful funding round, Revolut is planning on having two different funding rounds, one set in South America and another in Asia, which in every way shows the progress of Revoult towards expansion.

But, where do we find Bitcoin Cash and Ripple expanding in this case scenario?

Revolut is said to be the fastest growing company in financial tech industry, which means that they are planning on further expanding. Revolut offers different banking services which include peer-to-peer payments, global and international transactions, exchanging and purchasing cryptocurrencies, personal loans, remittance and exchanging of fiat currencies.

The company’s service that promotes crypto-powered transactions is called Revolut Crypto and until recently this service has added Litecoin, Bitcoin, and Ethereum to its service options.

As of the most recent events and the announcement that came yesterday, as stated by Revolut, Bitcoin Cash and Ripple have been added to the existing team of crypto Revolut Crypto is offering.

The head of the company announced that they wanted to celebrate the fact that they managed to collect 250 million dollars with the funding round, so they decided to add two more currencies, BCH and XRP, to their existing list of digital assets.

Revolut is planning on launching its services by the end of 2018, that way expanding their market to Singapore, the US, New Zealand, Australia, Hong Kong and Canada.

Since Revolut Crypto will also be among these services, it is expected that the assets supported by Revolut will go through expansion themselves, which means that Ripple and Bitcoin Cash are definitely in for global expansion, which is considered to be a new objective of all major digital assets, especially now that cryptocurrencies are being better understood.

How is Bitcoin Cash doing at the Current Moment?

As the fourth-best currency according to the global coin ranking list, Bitcoin Cash is doing an amazing job while it is being recovered from the latest selloff that hit the market a couple of days ago as many holders probably wanted to earn some profit from the most recent rebound.

Following the latest change in the market, BCH is going up against the dollar with a rise of 3.78% in oppose to this fiat value.

However, although BCH is rising against the dollar, this currency is going down against Bitcoin but only trading in the red with a slight drop of -0.68%.

That being said Bitcoin Cash can be exchanged for 1385.65$ per one unit.

How is Ripple doing at the Current Moment?

Ripple, although struggling to reach the value of 1$, is still without question the third-best currency due to its market cap. Although Ripple is already used to being applied in different banking systems thanks to Ripple’s own xCurrent, being added by Revolut is surely contributing to the expansion of XRP.

After the most recent change in the market, Ripple has gone up to nearly 5% against the dollar, while it is trading in the red.

In addition to this most recent rise, XRP is also trading up in oppose to BTC, while going up for a slight rise of 0.42% against Bitcoin.

At this moment, one unit of Ripple can be bought at the price of 0.84$ per one unit, which means that XRP is pretty close to acquiring the anticipated 1$ value in case this digital asset continues with the current pace of growth.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
