Forget Bitcoin (BTC), Here’s Why Ripple (XRP) Looks Ready to Explode

The original cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC), will remain a substantial portion of many investor’s portfolios. And why not? Afterall, Bitcoin (BTC) is still king. Making up a solid third of the total coin market-cap, this behemoth in the cryptocurrency space certainly isn’t going away anytime soon. And if you’ve listened to what the hard-core believers in this mainstay crypto-product are whispering in the chatrooms, you know that by holding it, there’s a great chance of doubling your money in the coming month(s).

Of course, many coins will double in that same amount of time.

The allure of the larger, more popular coins available on your favorite exchange(s) has a lot to do with risk (or the relative lack of it). Perhaps more importantly, however, the big-three, Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Ripple (XRP) (collectively making up well over half of the approximately US$560 Billion total market-cap) represent the face of the blockchain to a curious public, standing eagerly at the gates of the crypto-castle. New participants in this market, ready to crash onto the scene, will likely choose from these safe-bets, at least at first, when tiptoeing into the warm waters of the altcoin sea. And while Bitcoin and Ethereum are indeed long-term strategic holds for new and old investors alike, the third largest (and still undervalued) cryptocurrency, Ripple (XRP), looks ready to steal the show.

Ripple (XRP)

As the news surrounding Ripple (XRP) intensifies, and the anticipation of quick gains grows in the hearts of the company’s most ardent believers, there is little doubt that this altcoin will again prove itself as a significant player in the month(s) to come. With the Twitter feeds all abuzz, and some predicting a US$10 price target, it’s probably time we all take another look at the potential of this fantastic mover in the crypto-universe.

So what explains the media blitz and current predictions surrounding Ripple (XRP)? And how do we play the current dip to our advantage as we make the leap and entrust our fiat to this giant in the altcoin universe?

Media Attention

The vast media coverage on Ripple (XRP) over the last month may prove to be justified, as potential developments and not-so-far-off predictions are theorized and contemplated in crypto-space. Starting with rumors before the new year about a possible listing on Coinbase, and continuing into 2018 with the cryptocurrency’s potential use by Amazon (and now Moneygram) the buzz surrounding Ripple (XRP) is ever-growing. And new participants (like market-bees attracted to the hype in my altcoin analogy here) are swarming with hive-minded excitement, ready for the sweet digital-honey of potential gains to pour into their waxy, hexagonal shaped wallets.

With the backing of over 100 institutions, this mainstay in the banking sector is helping solve complex problems as a cost-effective solution to handling transactions. Ripple (XRP) allows banks in varying regions of the world make fast, verifiable transactions. For these institutions, Ripple (XRP) and the verifiable immutability of the blockchain technology it utilizes, has proven itself as a useful tool. And when the coin is finally accepted onto Coinbase and used in the transaction systems of major corporations, like Amazon, we will see the justification for the media blitz play out in real-time on the graphs and charts exhibited on your favorite trading platform(s).

Catch the Dip

The best way to succeed in any market is to adhere to the first principle of trading taught in your middle school economics class; Buy low and sell high. The recent downturn in the coin market made a dent in the prices of many altcoins, rolling them back, almost universally, to December support levels. While many investors are still recovering from the recent shock that ate a substantial portion of their gains from the year before, savvy players (and new participants) are eyeing the current dip as a last-chance opportunity to get in. Ripple now sits substantially down from its highs before the entire space crashed last week.

As the market recovers, however, and the sounds of cheers grow louder from your neighbors and friends as they notice their gains in the coming days, you may be tempted to get in on the action as well. And if you want to impress your co-workers, forever gossiping around the water cooler about their favorite crypto-coin-de-jour, just mention your recent foray into Ripple (XPR) and the altcoin-universe. You’ll fit right in.

The crypto community is still waiting for the US SEC to approve Bitcoin ETFs, with speculation which application might get approval being one of the hottest topics in 2018. However, come 2019, the US government shutdown dragged on, and the Bitcoin ETF request which had the most potential to see a grant got withdrawn by the very companies that submitted the application.

While the question of BTC ETF remains hanging in the air, blockchain-focused ETFs seem to be a different matter entirely. In a recent announcement by an independent investment managed firm called Invesco, the company has stated that it was about to launch the largest blockchain-focused ETF in the world. They managed to go through with this plan, and the ETFs have reached the London Stock Exchange today, March 11th.

The exchange-traded fund includes a portfolio containing as many as 48 different firms which are bringing exposure to the emerging technology. Among them, there is Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, which is a well-known creator of chips used for crypto mining, as well as the CME Group, which is the first regulated exchange in the US which launched Bitcoin futures. There are many other well-known companies as well, such as Intel, Microsoft, and others.

Chris Mellor, the Invesco’s head of ETF equity product management in Europe, said that blockchain has a huge potential to increase earnings, even though…

Jeff Bezos

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has made numerous headlines recently due to his overly-publicized divorce, which shows all signs of being one of the most expensive ones — if not THE most expensive one — in modern history. According to estimates, it might cost him as much as $70 billion, which will make his soon-to-be-ex-wife the richest woman in human history.

However, as the process continues to unfold, many have started wondering if things may have ended up differently for Bezos if he turned to Bitcoin for help.

Bitcoin as a divorce tool?

In the last several years — since Bitcoin and other cryptos hit fame — many have started turning to BTC during their divorce proceedings. In fact, it can even be said that using the largest cryptocurrency in this way has become a new trend. The trend has been gaining so much strength that numerous law companies started including advice on what to do in regards to Bitcoin as part of their websites.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem. For example, if there is even a suspicion of a spouse having undisclosed holdings appears during the divorce process, it might be enough to impact the final decision of the judge. In other words, even if there is a complete lack of evidence, but…
