Here Is Why Brad Garlinghouse Thinks Coinbase Should List Ripple (XRP)




The visionary CEO of the Ripple company, Brad Garlinghouse, has recently put forth his idea that the Coinbase exchange should list Ripple (XRP). Mr. Garlinghouse argued publicly for the first time about the Coinbase addition during an interview with Fortune magazine only yesterday, Thursday, June 21st.

During the interview, Mr. Garlinghouse is quoted as saying:

“As we solve problems at scale for institutions, I think it’s in Coinbase’s interest to participate in that.”

What Brad meant by this, is that Ripple has continually proven its products of xRapid, xVia, xCurrent and RippleNet over the past few months. The current number of banking partnerships Ripple has gained so far is known to be over 100 with many speculating it could be in the 200 range already. This means that Coinbase needs to see the proverbial light and also list XRP for it is the current and future digital asset for remittances.

The Coinbase/Ripple conversation has been alive in all the social media platforms since January when XRP had peaked to $3.84 levels as the crypto-verse had anticipated an XRP listing on Coinbase. However, this did not materialize even after it was reported that Coinbase was offered $1 Million to list the digital asset.

Another argument (not by Brad) that can be put forth, is that both Coinbase and Ripple are American companies. Using President Trump’s mantra of Make America Great Again, it is about time the two companies came to an agreement and took over the world of cryptocurrency markets as we know it.

A third and not necessary the last reason Coinbase should add XRP is that the digital asset does not qualify as a security. Many crypto-traders have speculated that the delay in listing XRP is due to lack of clear direction by the SEC with regards to XRP. This, in turn, explains why Ethereum Classic (ETC) was listed by Coinbase in a heartbeat as soon as the SEC declared that Ethereum is not a security.

Brad Garlinghouse is quoted as saying the following with respect to XRP not being a security:

“I think it’s really clear that XRP is not a security. XRP exists independent of Ripple.”

With regards to the value of XRP, earlier this Friday, the cryptocurrency markets suffered a downward spiral in value as a total market capitalization of $10 Billion was lost in a little over an hour. But if you have been in this cryptocurrency industry for the last 6 or so months, this type of action is normal. During last week’s Coinrail hacking, the total crypto markets lost close to $50 Billion.

Looking at the coin of the day, Ripple (XRP), it too has been affected by the current decline. XRP is currently trading at $0.51 and down 5.11% at the moment of writing this. Bitcoin (BTC) has also been affected by the sudden crash and is trading at $6,373. The King of Crypto is currently down 5.49% in the last 24 hours. All fingers are crossed that the crypto markets stabilize as we walk into the weekend ahead.

Top 3 Crypto Trends That Might Go Big in Q2 2019



crypto trends

So far 2019 has brought a significant change to the crypto industry. Q1 of this year has seen the rise of the idea of IEOs, the crypto space has finally managed to shake off the bears, and numerous coins throughout the industry have seen their prices grow once again.

The latest rally happened only several weeks ago, and it allowed Bitcoin to surge up by $1,000. Most other coins followed in their own way, but the investors are now wondering what to expect out of Q2? The Q1 started off badly, but it ended up being extremely successful. The chances are that history might repeat itself in the second quarter, as there are some key trends that might point the way for the further development of the crypto market.

1. The rise of IEOs

Back in 2017 and early 2018, ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) were everything that the crypto space was talking about. Their popularity allowed startups to raise billions upon billions of dollars. Soon enough, however, that ended in a pretty bad way. STOs (Security Token Offerings) emerged as an alternative that does not depend on trust, follows regulations, and it actually holds value. However, asset tokenization might still be in its early stages, and this is something that might come back at some point in the future.

In 2019, however, IEOs (Initial Exchange Offerings) started attracting the…

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV



Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?




One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…
