Bitcoin and Ripple (XRP) are certainly great cryptocurrencies that can change the world. Although, both Bitcoin and Ripple (XRP) haven’t gotten the drive they need to become the game changers. However, in this article, we will take a detailed look at the final pieces that Bitcoin and Ripple need to revolutionize the world.

Bitcoin’s price will rise if it goes mainstream

Recent research from pollsters Gallup discovers the total percentage of people that have invested in Bitcoin and cryptos, emphasizing how well the price of Bitcoin will surge higher if more people invest in Bitcoin worldwide.

The recent survey was conducted on 2000 people in the United States, and as per the results, only two percent invest on Bitcoin and fewer than one percent of these people have plans to invest in it in the future.

Subsequently, most of the investors clearly stated their disapproval in investing in Bitcoin. Additionally, about 26 percent of these people say they are fascinated by Bitcoin but don’t consider investing in it.

Gallup states:

The price of Bitcoin is back on an upswing after crashing earlier this year causing some to say its bubble is again about to burst and others to argue that its value will only accelerate as more merchants inevitably adopt it. For now, most investors are on the sidelines, knowing little to nothing about bitcoin. Few are already in it, and even fewer plan to jump in soon.”

Gallup further added that “looking to the future, however, many younger investors who currently say they are intrigued may be converted to investors once the currency goes more mainstream.”

Taking the results of the survey into account, we have a total of 26 percent of the population in the U.S intrigued by Bitcoin. If the same conclusions apply to the rest of the world, and this set of people invest on Bitcoin (BTC), that would have a big effect not just on the price of Bitcoin, but on the price of other cryptos such as Ripple (XRP).  This is the first piece that could change all, Bitcoin, XRP, and the world.

Ripple (XRP) – An alternative to Swift

Concerning Ripple (XRP), there are more shreds of evidence that big plans for Ripple and XRP are in the oven. Most central banks and the United States itself, as a country, are taking notice of the cryptocurrencies, because it is becoming a significant threat to them.

The U.S. currently enjoys its universal control over the global reserve. The U.S. Dollar seems overpriced considering its foundations closely, thus, putting its ability to borrow at risk – with that in mind, there is an estimate that it needs to borrow USD 10 Trillion in the next ten years.

On the other hand, countries like China and Russia are currently trying to reduce the dominance of the U.S Dollar in the international finance and also as the global reserve currency.

Russia on its own fears that the U.S would cut it off from the global financial system ever since the Crimea incident by excluding it from Swift. Since then, Russia has been taking good measures to shield itself from being cut off from the financial system by creating an alternative to Swift. Many other countries don’t want the U.S to be in charge of the global reserve; and clearly, a platform that has created a better alternative to Swift is Ripple.

Many moves are being taken by governments to retain control of the reserve currency, and Ripple has been involved in this regard. This is the second piece that needs to be placed to change the world. Many analysts see these pieces getting connected in the near future.

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.

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.

In the past few…

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,…
