These latest strides show why Cardano (ADA) is so special



Cardano ADA

It has been an interesting few days for cryptocurrencies as the crypto space celebrates the third birthday of Ethereum reflecting many milestones and success that have occurred in the crypto market since the inception of the initial smart contract blockchain.

Adoption and mainstream interest are increasing with each day that passes facilitating the market cap for the entire cryptocurrency industry to increase by over 5,900% with the number of virtual currencies in circulation meeting all-time high numbers. Initially, the mindset and perception of many were that Ethereum was going to be the only blockchain technology that was going to be able to foster mainstream adoption of blockchain technology. That was before Cardano (ADA) came into the picture.

Recently, Charles Hoskinson, Cardano’s (ADA) founder, came out unveiling some of the digital currency’s secret project before the expected day. While he was prematurely unveiling the secret project, Hoskinson introduced Icarus to the world, and yesterday he divulged Yoroi as the addition of Icarus. Cardano foundation has since come out clear to tell the whole world that the two projects have since been updated on Cardano’s (ADA) roadmap.

Many people do not have a single idea of what Icarus is or what it represents? According to Cardano’s official blog. Icarus is a google chrome extension and a locus implementation for application for a lightweight wallet that has been developed by IOHK. The Icarus idea is believed to have the potential to give developers and creators the vantage point of inventing their light and secure mobile wallets for the digital coin.

Icarus is a fully open source code base that will be the first step in a range of open source initiatives to provide developers with a suite of tools for Cardano.”

According to news from Cardano foundation, Icarus came about a series of proof of concepts that were incepted back in March, this year. A small group of developers and IOHK engineers were fascinated by the thought of creating a lightweight Cardano (ADA) wallet that had all the features of Daedalus but superior regarding easy to use and efficiency.


What is Yoroi?

Earlier last week, Cardano (ADA) launched its light-client wallet by the name Yuroi that was launched by Emurgo. Emurgo is an institution that facilitates and supports new Cardano (ADA) projects. The organization declared its interest in launching the foremost implementation of Icarus to the crypto community. Icarus is the first implementation Emurgo is working on to launch; it is a Yoroi wallet.

In the Japanese language, the meaning of Yoroi is great amour a significant name for the project that is taunted to be a secure armament like the one Samurais used to wear in times of battle.

Cardano (ADA) Market Presence

The last 48-hours has experienced a lot of activities in the cryptocurrency sphere as most digital assets have turned their color from red to green in chameleon fashion, and then to red again.

Currently ranked as the 8th most relevant crypto in the market according to market capitalization, Cardano (ADA) seems to be no different than others as it is trading in red alongside others. At the beginning of this month, Cardano’s market price stood at $0.14 after reaching an impressive $0.17 valuation at the end of last month, but now the coin stands at $0.09. The current price of Cardano has nothing to do with what it deserves, by no means, it rather is because the whole market is walking on the bloody-road as yet. Things might change soon.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout: What’s Next?



Ripple XRP mega breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout that we were calling for happened and happened much quicker than anyone expected. As we said yesterday:

Nonetheless, IF, Ripple is capable of going ‘topside’ of the .38 figure at any point in the days/weeks ahead, such development, should it occur, would likely trigger its next advance into the .42 – .47 zone, representing a 30-40% move from present levels. On the flip-side, the .25 – .26 area should offer short-term potential support.

XRP is now sitting at .51704  as we write this article this morning, representing gains of 61% since we alerted our readers and our Global Elite email newsletter members.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout is significant because it’s the first time XRP has been above its 50-day moving average since May. Right now, the RSI is approaching 80, so we are in overbought territory and we expect the price to consolidate around the .42 to .47 level before resuming its uptrend.

While some are looking at this as an opportunity to short XRP, we are not of that camp. While some can book some profits and use a trailing stop, any integration of XRP with xRapid has the ability to create a tremendous move in XRP. As Travis Kling said this week on the Off the Chain podcast with Anthony Pompliano, XRP could be the quickest five-bagger investors…

Litecoin Cash (LCC): The potential mover?



Litecoin Cash

Litecoin underwent a hard fork in the past, and that is what led to the creation of Litecoin Cash. Bitcoin has also experienced a hard fork, which has led to the creation of Bitcoin Cash, so this trend is not necessarily brand new.

Forks have occurred pretty often now in the cryptocurrency community, and the perception is that it probably will continue to, as long as the need (forks are often created to overcome issues faced by the originals) remains there.

While the market has been bearish for most of the year, it has been showing some definite signs of life, especially when we look at the kind of price action that has been happening with Ripple recently. Litecoin is also rising in anticipating of its hard fork, which is to be expected.

For those who are unaware, Litecoin Cash was created earlier this year. 10 Litecoin Cash was given to every investor who had 1 Litecoin – and that one move, it’s easy to see, was very massive concerning value.

Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin, has come out against LiteCoin Cash, calling it a scam. Many cryptocurrency influencers have come out against Litecoin cash, although there are still others that believe that this is only because the project threatens them.

The Stage is Set for Stellar XLM vs XRP




The digital asset of XRP, did something spectacular on the 18th of September when it shocked the crypto-markets by rising in value by 21%. In a time period that was less than 5 hours, XRP spiked from levels of $0.273 to those of $0.332 and has continued rising. The digital asset is currently valued at $0.36.

xRapid Factor

The reason for the sharp increment in value of XRP was news that the Ripple company was going to launch xRapid in the next month or so. This was after the firm’s head of Regulatory relations for Asia-Pacific and the Middle East, Sagar Sarabhai, made the following comments during a CNBC interview on the 17th of September:

“I am very confident that in the next one month or so you will see some good news coming in where we launch the product live in production.”

Stellar’s Cross-Border Payments

The news of Ripple launching xRapid has come 2 weeks after the Stellar project and IBM, announced that they were entering the industry of cross-border payments through their new service known as IBM Blockchain World-Wire. The new payment settlement service has been quoted as being ‘near instant’ meaning that it will probably rival the transactions time seen in the xRapid pilot tests of 2 – 3 minutes earlier on in the year.
