Through their blog, the Ripple [XRP] group explained and stated vital information about liquidity solution by making use of xRapid.

It is important to know that liquidity is an essential aspect of any business operation and it is a stress-free way to accomplish the assets’ trade without altering its worth. However, liquidity can also be expressed as a simple way of transforming an asset into cash to be withdrawn. With all of these in mind, the liquidity solution that has been offered by Ripple team is a big answer to the financial market.

Furthermore, on Ripple’s blog, it was stated there that Ripple’s xRapid solution distinctively makes use of xRapid to give a high rate of liquidity.  Additionally, xRapid decreases risk and unleashes the complete capacity of payments by enhancing real-time and less costly transactions in every currency.

Funding a Nostro account before a foreign trade is actualized is hectic and also a costly method of attaining fluidity. The balance of this account is probably going be massive but stagnant, thereby making it a “tied-up” capital which may be expended in other beneficial ways.

To avoid the problems associated with Nostro accounts, a digital asset can be used as a substitute to decrease cost and enhance liquidity for different forms of transaction. Digital asset functions as a versatile currency, which helps to change any remittance into its needed money immediately and economically.

Nevertheless, any of the digital assets must be able to solve different transaction problems instantly, and XRP (Ripple) is one victorious enactment. It is also important to know that XRP, undoubtedly, is a distinct digital asset and different to Bitcoin in these powerful ways:

  • Bitcoin is not so fast when it comes to resolving a transaction because it takes 60 minutes to do so, thus, limiting its transaction to 16/second. But XRP can manage more than a thousand transaction per second that is on track with the frequency of vital payment networks like Visa.
  • XRP transactions are quick and efficient, and it also helps to protect the sender from the dangers of volatility, thus, enabling funds to be gotten without delays. On the other hand, Bitcoin is slower due to its low transaction frequency. This makes it an unsuitable digital asset for a stable of different capacity of transactions.

xRapid makes use of a unique digital asset, which is XRP, for offering liquidity at the low cost. Also, xRapid helps to lower the capital required to achieve higher liquidity, thus, assisting financial and payment companies to give their clients an unbeatable experience.

Consequently, xRapid was explained by CEO of Ripple [XRP], Brad Garlinghouse, as:

“xRapid as a digital asset was designed to have real-time liquidity. A bank like the Bank of Andy can decide to trade $1 to purchase XRP; this XRP can be transferred to an Argentinian digital asset exchange and can be used to purchase a liquid fund of an Argentinian peso within 10 seconds in another market”

It has been around a month and a half since the start of 2019, and there are already some pretty obvious changes in the way the crypto market operates, especially when compared to the last year. Early 2018 was almost a complete opposite. The previous year started with cryptocurrencies at their strongest, only to see them crashing down after a few weeks. Back then, the ICO model was still quite strong, and so was the hype surrounding the crypto space. New investors kept entering the space, and new startups emerged with their tokens ready to be sold.

As the year progressed, things started to change. The prices continued to drop, the ICO model went down from around $1.4 billion in raised funds at the beginning of the year to only $100 million in the last month.

The ICO model lost investors’ trust, as many of the projects turned out to be either too weak to survive after the crypto winter struck, or scams which tricked investors out of their money and disappeared. Not to mention that the increase in ICOs popularity attracted the regulators who cracked down on them pretty hard, especially in the US.

With all of that happening, it is of a small surprise that the investors started giving up on ICOs, especially with the constant drops in prices which saw even the largest coins…

Cryptocurrencies – a term which has become incredibly prominent in the mainstream media during recent years due to the proliferation of Bitcoin millionaires. As a result, the new form of currency has earned an almost infamous status. However, as with any major step forward, there is still much confusion regarding the use of cryptocurrencies, what different types of innovative electronic cash exist and what they might mean for the future.

We’re putting all of this to rest as we explain what each of the leading cryptocurrencies can do.

Bitcoin

The most popular form of cryptocurrency, Bitcoin was first thought up in 2008 by the elusive and still unknown creator, Satoshi Nakamoto, who published the whitepaper online.

It took almost a decade for the cryptocurrency to reach its peak, but in December 2017 a single Bitcoin roughly exchanged for the price of $17,000, meaning anyone who held a substantial amount of the electronic cash became significantly wealthy.

In its early years, the cryptocurrency was strictly used as an alternative for cash transactions, and predominantly for trading goods and services. However as it has increased in popularity, its range of uses has also widened, now deployed for a variety of purposes including acting as collateral for investments at merchant banks, a direct debit for subscriptions services and most notably for sports betting.

A new decision made by the US Justice Department has expanded restrictions regarding online gambling in the US affecting gambling dApps. While the Federal Wire Act of 1961 prohibited online gambling regarding sports since 2011, the new decision expanded on this, and it now includes all forms of internet gambling. Unfortunately for many, this now also includes cryptocurrencies.

The new decision came due to considerable difficulties when it comes to guaranteeing that only interstate betting will take place and that payments will not be routed via different states.

The new announcement was explained in a 23-page-long opinion issued by the Department of Justice’s legal team, which pointed out that the 2011 decision misinterpreted the law. According to that decision, transferring funds was to be considered a violation, but data transfers were not included. By exploiting this oversight, it was possible for gamblers to turn to internet gambling. Unsurprisingly, many have realized this early on, including startups, as well as large, established firms. This, of course, also included cryptocurrency companies as well.
