Ripple (XRP) and the SBI Holdings Group have enjoyed a fruitful partnership for over 2 years now. What has resulted in the partnership is the formation of SBI Ripple Asia that has spearheaded the adoption of Ripple technologies in the region as well as innovation in the industry of fintech. So far, Ripple has access to over 61 banks in the consortium that makes up SBI Holdings.

It is, therefore, no surprise that the SBI Group wants to release a cryptocurrency exchange that plans to utilize XRP as the centerpiece for trading on the platform. The exchange, known as SBI Virtual Currencies, has updated its website and is now live for trading for users who had pre-registered back in October 2017. One thing to note is that XRP is the only cryptocurrency on the site that has been described in terms of what it is and its capabilities. The exchange will later add Bitcoin Cash (BCH) as the second traded digital asset on the platform.

This means that the CEO and President of SBI Holdings, Yoshitaka Kitao, was serious when he said that once the exchange is ready, it will feature primarily XRP and the exchange will eventually be number one. The exchange had been scheduled for launch this summer and the XRP HODLers and the entire crypto-verse is applauding and excited with the launch today, June 4th.

One thing to remember is that the country of Japan is home to over 3.5 Million crypto traders and HODLers. These traders are between the ages of 20 and 40. This will be the target demographic of the new crypto exchange by the SBI Holdings Group.

With respect to the cryptocurrency markets, they are still showing some upward mobility in terms of gains since the entire market came to its knees on Tuesday, the 29th of May. On this date, the total market capitalization of the crypto markets came to a recent low of $303 Billion and Bitcoin (BTC) was trading at $7,100 levels. The crypto markets have since regained $40 Billion at the moment of writing this and the total market capitalization stands at $345 Billion.

Bitcoin (BTC) is now trading at $7,629 and looks like it is on its way to levels close to $8,000. With respect to Ethereum, the coin is now valued at $621. Our beloved Ripple (XRP) is currently valued at $0.67 and up 3% in 24 hours. The aforementioned launch of the SBI Virtual Currencies exchange is what many Ripple HODLers were waiting for this summer.  Expectations of the platform are high in terms of assisting XRP to reach the $5 levels everyone is asking about.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

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…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
