The past few weeks (or months) have not been the best for the cryptocurrency investors as the prices were all on the downfall. However, in the past few days, things have seemed to get up again. Bitcoin is the giant coin and most investors for some time now have only been buying this digital coin.
Investors now thinking of getting into the market may consider several other crypto assets, and not only Bitcoin. Currently, bitcoin is trading at $8,700 (and that’ because of an overnight jump, it was $8,200 yesterday) from an initial high of $20,000. Assuming that bitcoin will regain the initial high again; any purchase now will get a return on investment of 140%.
That sounds great, right? But if everything stays as much constant that all crypto assets return to their original highs, then there for sure are some other cryptocurrencies that may have a greater ROI than bitcoin.
For instance, Ripple’s XRP at the moment is trading at $0.92 (hiked almost 20% just within last 24 hours) from its high of $3.30; therefore, it has the potential to provide investors a whole 300% return if it gets back to its original high. Everything is possible in the crypto market hence we can’t rule out any possibility of it happening and especially in case of Ripple that looks very much on the card.
In fact, it is very easy for Ripple as it is backed with great payment providers (well-known) as well as big-name banks. Ripple’s goal merely is making cross-border payments efficient for these banks and all the payment providers.
Ripple’s XRP reduces the movement cost for money transfers as it makes the whole process simple and faster. The time of money being stuck in accounts in different currencies is being reduced as it can be converted to XRP, and then sent to the recipient. Most banks and institutions are adopting the Ripple’s products, which is why it will get to its original high even sooner.
Furthermore, Ripple has signed partnerships with great players that include SBI Holdings, Santander, and LianLian International — these all three are mega players in their respective industries. Partnerships of this nature will for sure get Ripple more adopted and more familiar to the general public.
It goes without a say that recently reputable money transfer companies like Mercure FX, MoneyGram, Cuallix Mercadotecnia, and IDT Corporation tested Ripple’s rapid product. This is a good sign for XRP to get and do even better, in fact, several other financial institutions (more than 100) from payment providers to banks want to integrate Ripple’s blockchain solutions; Ripple XRP simply seems to be going viral.
Subsequently, as we head to mid-year, it only seems bullish for Ripple. But in case of failure, Ripple will cause a severe press to the entire crypto market; hence, a bad picture for the blockchain technology. And, as it looks now, what the future holds for the blockchain technology is for it to change the picture and shape of the world soon — like what the internet did.
With all that being said, Ripple is cheap, and for small account investors it is the best bet; therefore, it is all in favor of Ripple whereby bitcoin will more likely have a tough to keep up with XRP’s growth.
All that investors have to do is to be keen on their investment options as the market is getting up from the fiasco in the last few months. Ripple has got a big target market plus the opportunities already discussed that will let it grow, and as per now it only seems that the moon is the limit for this crypto.
In fact, it is all positive around the coin as well as the partnerships it is getting into proves not only the confidence institutions have towards it, but also shows that sooner Ripple XRP will hit its high and even beyond. Consequently, all powers are with the investors to make the right decision – and Ripple surely looks to be the horse they should put their bet on, of course, if they don’t want to regret later.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes
While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.
During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.
Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.
1. True ownership of your coins
The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges…
Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021
Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.
Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.
He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.
However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…
TokenRoll (TKR) Platform Will Take Online Casinos to the Next Level
Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world. Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon. This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs. One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos. TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.
Problems with Centralized Casinos
The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model. And online casinos are no different. It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling. The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative. But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.
A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:
- Little to no transparency
- Consumer lack of confidence
- Privacy concerns
- 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals
These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market. Casinos need to…
