The month of July is a significant one, and it might also be the month when the window of opportunity (in terms of huge returns) in the crypto market closes. Taking a look at the crypto market, the market has been bearish with lots of dips. However, three basic factors have been holding the crypto market back for the past few months. Here I’ll discuss why the month of July would be a crucial month for cryptocurrencies, especially Ripple’s XRP.
Coinbase has finally solved one of the biggest issues that institutional investors face. The problem of custody – which means where and how big institutions can store their cryptos without the fear of their funds being stolen by hackers such as instances with exchanges that have been hacked by cyber thieves.
Coinbase has found a solution termed Coinbase Custody: a service that helps to store Institutional funds. On June 2, 2018, Coinbase said this on its official Twitter page:
Coinbase Custody is officially open for business, providing secure storage of crypto assets for institutions in both the US and Europe. Before the end of the year, we hope to bring this offering to Asia as well. https://t.co/KDtMQ5TT3B
— Coinbase (@coinbase) July 2, 2018
It is important to know that the exchange platform aims to be the most trusted crypto exchange in the world. Additionally, another aim of Coinbase Custody is to make sure that the storage of funds and investments are readily available for every financial institution out there. The exchange’s new service will have a storage mechanism for its clients’ digital assets (cryptos).
The problem of custody has been on for quite some time in the crypto market. Lots of institutional investors are bothered on where their cryptos can be stored. However, the Coinbase’s CEO, Brian Armstrong stated the most crucial problem that eligible institutions face with cryptos is security. With this problem solved, the window of opportunity (concerning huge returns) of major cryptos (including XRP) will close this month, July 2018.
The regulatory environment
We do know the debate on whether XRP is a security or not. Well, lots of investors are scared if they will call XRP a security. It is important to know that Thailand skipped the big debate on whether cryptocurrencies are securities or not.
The country skipped this debate due to the fact they want cryptocurrencies in the country to boom. One fantastic thing that Thailand did was placing Ripple (XRP) with other major cryptos such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Stellar, and Ethereum classic, as standards for ICOs and trades to pair with.
Thailand’s move indicates that most governments are preparing to back away from holding cryptocurrencies.
If you look at the top 5 cryptocurrencies today, most of them are based in the US. One crypto that is working closing with the US government is Ripple, and they are making sure that the US government check their activities to make sure that nothing goes wrong.
Regulatory policies by the US government may not harm Ripple due to the close check and updates Ripple has been offering to make sure the US government remains at the top to other governments like China. It is safe to say that Ripple (XRP) is a cryptocurrency that can make the US government stay on ‘top of its game’ to other countries.
Why is that so, China banned cryptocurrency, but recently, they are set to lift the ban. The country knows that the use of cryptos is worldwide and modern technologies are being used in the crypto market. With that in mind, the Chinese government won’t want to be left behind in remaining competitive with the US government and other governments.
Utility issues on the edge to get resolved
The crypto market is also faced with utility issues, and they are lots of questions concerning if digital currencies are going to be used by banks or financial institutions. In fact, this is the biggest of all the issues stated here. What’s the essence of a digital asset if it can’t be used?
A crypto coin like Ripple (XRP) has excellent potential, and one day, just because of this single reason (let other Ripple blockchain pros be on the side), its price will be way more than what it is today. Ripple (XRP) has lots of exciting plans for their products and xRapid – a product that uses XRP will go into production very shortly, according to Brad Galinghouse. It is also important to know that xRapid and xCurrent are Ripple’s software and these software use XRP for liquidity.
Utility issues not only applies to Ripple (XRP) alone, but to other digital currencies. This is due to the fact if digital currencies are used continually, lots of good things will occur and the transactions of funds will be much easier for banks, Amazon, and similar platforms because of the blockchain technology. Ripple has the potential to be the first company to be used by the Financial industry for cross-border transactions.
Ripple (XRP) is a futuristic blockchain that sets its aim on long-term goals. The cryptocurrency is almost on the cusp for a breakout, and as a result, the window of golden opportunities (mega returns) might close very soon. As it stands now, it is an excellent time to invest your money in Ripple (XRP). Not just for Ripple, the month of July could be the turning point for all major cryptocurrencies. Let’s wait and hope for the best.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
