The crypto-markets are experiencing some sideways movement at the moment of writing this. The total crypto market capitalization is stagnant at levels of above $250 Billion and currently at $252 Billion. The King of Crypto is having a hard time maintaining levels above $7,000 and is currently trading at $6,996 and down 1.14% in 24 hours. With regards to our favorite remittance coin of XRP, it has dropped by 1.8% in the last 24 hours and currently trading at $0.42.

Looking at how when BTC drops, XRP drops by a similar amount (1.14% and 1.8% respectively), it can be concluded that XRP is tied to the hip with BTC when it comes to market stability. As a matter of fact, the team at Ripple highlighted this fact in their 2nd quarterly report of 2018. They stated the following:

“XRP was notably less volatile in Q2 and XRP’s 9.0 percent price decline was in line with bitcoin’s 8.2 percent decline.” 

This means that once BTC is huffing and puffing in the markets during its highly anticipated Bull run, XRP will also not be left behind. Speculation is high that the CBOE Bitcoin ETF that is pending at the SEC will be approved sometime this year. Some had believed it will be postponed for another year or so, but the recent development of the owner of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) launching a Bitcoin market, has rekindled the hopes of an August Bitcoin ETF approval.

Switching our attention to the country of Japan, the SBI Holdings company through its VCTRADE platform is aiming at becoming the number one cryptocurrency exchange in terms of trading volume as well as superior customer experience. VCTRADE is very much XRP friendly. The future plans of the SBI Holdings company can be seen in their recent financial reports that highlight the following plans:

  • Acquiring new customers and retaining them through the provision of superior customer services at a low cost as compared to their competitors
  • Provide the narrowest spreads and high-level security for VCTRADE clients/customers
  • Implement a future services expansion policy that might include commission-free trading of BTC, BCH, and XRP on VCTRADE
  • Provide superior deposit and withdrawal services
  • Support of Ethereum (ETH) on the platform
  • Boost crypto fund businesses with the CoVenture Holding Company: an Asset Management Company based in the US and Co-founded by SBI
  • Start offering cryptocurrency financial derivatives through the Clear Markets Firm in the US. SBI owns a 12% stake and aims at acquiring up to 20%. The Clear Markets Firm provides an over-the-counter derivatives electronic trading service in the US, UK, and Japan

There is also news of Coinbase finally warming up to XRP through its Custody service. This service stores digital assets for institutional investors as well as high net individuals. Coinbase has not confirmed it will be supporting XRP in its storage service, but it announced it was considering it.

In conclusion, the future does indeed look bright for our favorite remittance coin of XRP in terms of market performance and investment products through SBI Holdings. This means that its current price might be the lowest it might be for the foreseeable future. Yes, it is a bear market, but the future looks too good not to buy or HODL some XRP.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

Integrating blockchain technology is fast becoming a necessity for enterprise ventures and small or large businesses, but with a growing number of choices in the tech revolution, it’s difficult to pick a direction without feeling overwhelmed or taken advantage of. This is where BEHOLD THE CRYPTOPRENEURS comes in.

Private keys, the myth of anonymity, and the battle against anarchist ideology are only a few of the difficult challenges faced by businesses that want to incorporate blockchain into their culture. Author Dennis H. Lewis guides the reader through those challenges and helps them discover the true potential of investing in this new economic paradigm.

Every business has pain points that must be overcome in order to branch out and thrive in an ever-changing commercial environment. Blockchain has real world solutions and cryptopreneurs are not limited to the cryptocurrencies they invest in but rather how they seize economic and technological opportunities to make it work for them.

Innovation, trust, and solutions can differentiate your business from all the noise, but without a solid marketing plan, a cryptopreneur can have the best idea and never get far. Remember: a million great ideas times zero market presence equals zero success.

Investors want to know there is public interest and enthusiasm in a project before they commit any money to it. As a cryptopreneur, you are tasked with generating that interest from the…
