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 Bitcoin bank.
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.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
