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.

Cryptocurrencies – a term which has become incredibly prominent in the mainstream media during recent years due to the proliferation of Bitcoin millionaires. As a result, the new form of currency has earned an almost infamous status. However, as with any major step forward, there is still much confusion regarding the use of cryptocurrencies, what different types of innovative electronic cash exist and what they might mean for the future.

We’re putting all of this to rest as we explain what each of the leading cryptocurrencies can do.

Bitcoin

The most popular form of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was first thought up in 2008 by the elusive and still unknown creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the whitepaper online.

It took almost a decade for the cryptocurrency to reach its peak, but in December 2017 a single Bitcoin roughly exchanged for the price of $17,000, meaning anyone who held a substantial amount of the electronic cash became significantly wealthy.

In its early years, the cryptocurrency was strictly used as an alternative for cash transactions, and predominantly for trading goods and services. However as it has increased in popularity, its range of uses has also widened, now deployed for a variety of purposes including acting as collateral for investments at merchant banks, a direct debit for subscriptions services and most notably for sports betting.

New DoJ Ruling May Cripple Gambling dApps

A new decision made by the US Justice Department has expanded restrictions regarding online gambling in the US affecting gambling dApps. While the Federal Wire Act of 1961 prohibited online gambling regarding sports since 2011, the new decision expanded on this, and it now includes all forms of internet gambling. Unfortunately for many, this now also includes cryptocurrencies.

The new decision came due to considerable difficulties when it comes to guaranteeing that only interstate betting will take place and that payments will not be routed via different states.

The new announcement was explained in a 23-page-long opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s legal team, which pointed out that the 2011 decision misinterpreted the law. According to that decision, transferring funds was to be considered a violation, but data transfers were not included. By exploiting this oversight, it was possible for gamblers to turn to internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, many have realized this early on, including startups, as well as large, established firms. This, of course, also included cryptocurrency companies as well.

The new decision changes what is allowed online

The decision to include all forms of internet gambling is a massive hit in the…
