Is Ripple (XRP) value on the edge to skyrocket now?

Published

Ripple XRP

Launched in 2012 as a currency exchange, remittance network, and a real-time gross settlement system (RTGS), Ripple (XRP) also known as Ripple protocol or Ripple Transaction Protocol (RTXP) is based on a shared and public ledger or database. Many financial institutions broadly adopt XRP, payment networks broadly used by many respected firms such as UBS, Santander, and Unicredit. Ripple undoubtedly has some advantages over other significant virtual currencies like bitcoin.

It is true that this cross-border payment system is one of the most popular digital currencies in the realm of virtual currencies. One of the main advantages of Ripple (XRP) is that it does not have common drawbacks such as high transaction rates and long transaction times. However, although having great benefits, the market environment at the moment has been and continue to value the price of Ripple way too low.

According to evaluations made by cryptocurrency market experts, the future of this precious digital coin is quite bright in the coming years. But the question stands when we will start seeing Ripple’s XRP prices to surge?

Ripple (XRP) in the remaining months of 2018

Many wonder the course Ripple (XRP) is going to take in the remaining months of this year. Ripple is still the third most significant virtual currency by market capitalization. While those near the cryptocurrency blockchain shower praise for all that is done to make Ripple (XRP) significant for real-life uses, there are some who are still looking for answers.

For example, many users are still not sure of the role and relevance of Ripple Labs in XRP’s performance. Also, we didn’t know the verdict of the court case that was being investigated whether Ripple (XRP) is a security or not just a couple of days ago. We know now though, and it’s that Ripple (XRP) is not a security. Great.

With that said, Ripple could witness drastic positive price change in 2018 in spite of the negatives and the lingering questions (those are getting answered nicely on the way) attached to it. There is no doubt Ripple’s benefits outweigh the negatives, and this could be the reason why XRP prices would surge later in the year. Some of the reasons I believe might affect Ripple prices this year include:

  1. Easy access to Ripple. Ripple is everywhere as the digital coin is listed on several major exchanges, including Revolut, UK based cryptocurrency exchange.
  2. Ripple proposes to cure some of the financial sector’s most vexing problems that include high transaction fees and slow transaction speeds.
  3. Ripple keeps expanding its partnerships with the last one being announced a few weeks ago. On 26 May, Kuwait Finance House (and then just a couple of days later, National Bank of Kuwait) publicized that it had signed an agreement with Ripple to commence usage of RippleNet.
  4. Ripple seems to continually make the news headlines, announcing one project after another. A few months back, Ripple made public the Xpring initiative at this year’s Consensus. Additionally, Ripple’s xRapid continues to shine, making massive advancements in the financial sector.

Final Thoughts

Ripple continues to have enormous influence on the global virtual currency market. With its recent development and partnership in a market where market segment determines volatility, its recent progress would only further improve its value.

Although it is hard to pinpoint a specific date when Ripple’s prices are going to surge, but looking at partnerships like Santander deal, a consortium of 60 Asian banks who are looking into the possibility of developing an application based on Ripple’s technology, and several financial institutions worldwide, we can only say that the near future of this digital coin looks very promising. There are over 1600 virtual currencies in existence today, but there is no doubt that Ripple is one of the coins leading the pack. So, its prices are more likely to surge soon, the rise might not occur in a rush – but it will.

Boca Raton, Florida, 27th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

Collaborating with Other Cryptocurrencies, META 1 Tackles Injustice and Human Rights 

META 1 Coin Trust has announced plans to identify, research and document instances of governmental overreach in cryptocurrency cases globally, as part of its ongoing efforts to advance human rights and individual freedom. 

According to Robert P. Dunlap, Executive Trustee of META 1 Coin Trust, “The malicious attacks on crypto projects globally by overzealous government agencies must be documented and publicized to protect the individual liberties of META 1 Coin holders, as well as issuers and holders of other cryptocurrencies.” He added, “The decentralized, non-jurisdictional reality of crypto has left government agencies often unable to fully litigate cases and the general public should not have to continue suffering due to excessive overreach as agencies clamor to save face.”

META 1 Coin Trust is led by Robert P. Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler, who are both committed to pushing back against unimpeded global persecution of cryptocurrencies. By calling attention to years of organized efforts by government agencies to specifically target cryptocurrency projects, their hope is that the public will see and demand an end to these unjust violations of individual liberty. 

Specific grievances which motivated this initiative include grave concerns over government agencies’ obstruction of individuals’ livelihoods, defamation of character, and libelous false accusations which could tarnish the names of individuals for years to come, long after legal actions…

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…
