Today, while giving the interview to a journalist during the Swell event, the CEO of Ripple, Brad Garlinghouse made it crystal clear that XRP is fully decentralized. The head of Ripple even went on to say that all the FUD around XRP is spread by only the haters who have an economic benefit in doing so.

While responding to the criticism that XRP is not decentralized, he went on to say even he as a CEO cannot control the ledger of XRP or change a transaction, that’s how much decentralized the cryptocurrency token is. Once an Uber drive and now the CEO of Ripple, emphasized that XRP is ‘very clearly’ decentralized.

Brad Garlinghouse went on to that irony this is, as XRP has become more decentralized, Bitcoin is getting more centralized. Backing his statement that Bitcoin is becoming more centralized, Ripple CEO said that more and more 51% attacks today are launched on Bitcoin and only three mega miners that are based in China that can control Bitcoin blockchain. Cheddar Tweeted a part of the interview video earlier today:

The main head behind Ripple currently, Mr. Garlinghouse believes that a lot of people are spreading the misinformation merely for their economic interests and that does not bother him much. He thinks the facts are crystal clear and say by themselves.

Talking about the facts he said, it’s a fact that anyone can check the XRP ecosystem and that if Ripple does something which is not in the XRP ecosystem’s best interest, the rest of the ecosystem is undoubtedly going to ignore them.

The CEO asserted that without touch the technical stuff for the sake of the general public’s interest, he can confirm that XRP is a decentralized coin at its best. And if someone wishes to dive into the technical details, he’ll find only that too. According to Garlinghouse, many people continue to confuse the general public about Ripple and XRP intentionally, which are two different entities.

In response to the confusion, he said, that’s something that he wants the community to understand. Concluding the discussion, Garlinghouse said,

“Ripple is a centralized company investing in decentralized technology, in the same way Amazon was invested in TCP/IP”

As we all know, times haven’t been that good for crypto market lately, and Ripple’s XRP hasn’t been an exception either. But on top of market trends, two main reasons kept investors away from Ripple(XRP). One was this daunting debate that XRP is centralized, and the other was, it’s a security.

Now, both of these issues seem to be getting resolved over time rather nicely, so we can all expect some good days are coming for the crypto. Yes, the time will tell what’s ahead, but things are apparently starting to change. And, the latest affirmation of Ripple CEO on XRP centralization issue could affect on its market positively too.

Why Binance May Be Crucial for Tron (Trx) to Reach $1

TRON

TRON (TRX) has been one of the most popular crypto projects in the past year. The coin has received a lot of attention from the entire crypto community, and although the impressions may differ —  the fact is that TRX is one of the most talked-about coins, even today.

However, while the project managed to achieve a lot in less than a year — launch its MainNet, start multiple massive projects, launch dozens of dApps, hundreds of smart contracts, its own DEX, new token, and more — its price remains quite low. Undoubtedly, one of the reasons for this is its massive supply. TRX circulating supply is over 66 billion coins, while the total supply is over 99 billion.

Even so, the coin is believed to be massively undervalued, with its current price sitting at $0.028129, according to TradingView. This price, together with a market cap of $1.88 billion, pushed the coin out of the list of top 10 largest cryptocurrencies, and it currently sits at 11th spot. But, many believe that this is not a permanent position for TRON. In fact, its community believes that it is only a matter of time before TRON rises through the ranks, and its price hits $1. And, the way for the coin to achieve this is believed to be through Binance.

TRX

TRON (TRX) has been one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in recent years. The project has achieved a tremendous amount of success in less than a year, and while the first birthday of its MainNet is approaching, TRON certainly continues to impress to this day.

With that said, its price is still noticeably low, and many would agree that the project is heavily undervalued. The low price even allowed other projects to push it out of the top 10 list, with TRX currently being the 11th largest cryptocurrency by market cap. However, it is likely that TRON will not remain undervalued forever, and that its price might soon see a surge that its entire community has been waiting for, for a long time now.

Why TRX might see growth soon

As many undoubtedly know, TRON is a lot more than just a cryptocurrency. It has developed a massive ecosystem, which offers a development platform for coins, smart contracts, and dApps. It also acquired BitTorrent last year for its Project Atlas, which will allow torrent users to earn crypto through participation in content sharing.

For this purpose, it also launched BitTorrent (BTT) token, which saw its launch on January 28, 2019 on Binance Launchpad. This was dubbed the most successful ICO in history at the time, although several coins launched since then have broken its record.

In addition,…

For more than a year, the cryptocurrency market has been dominated by bearish influence, with most coins seeing constant drops, or stagnation, at best. This all changed in the past few months, starting with Bitcoin which once again started leading the market up, bringing one minor rally after another.

BTC itself experienced massive losses in 2018, with its price going down by around 84%. Most other coins among the top 10 mirrored its performance, and some of them experienced even greater losses. However, now that Bitcoin sees gains again, these cryptocurrencies are still following its example, and many of them have seen massive breakouts. Some of the more notable altcoins that followed Bitcoin’s recent example are Ethereum (ETH), Stellar (XLM), and Cardano (ADA).

Ethereum performance mirroring Bitcoin’s price

As mentioned, Bitcoin led every rally so far, but before it did, its price first went through what is known as an ascending triangle pattern. The pattern held for around five months, which is exceptionally long for the crypto world. However, once the pattern was finally broken — the coin’s price skyrocketed, more than doubling itself within only two months.

One thing to note is that Ethereum performed in pretty much the same fashion. After five months of struggle and confusion for investors, the second largest cryptocurrency also managed to break the pattern and skyrocket as well. It…
