From the very beginning, XRP (Ripple) has been working on setting the lead for the cryptocurrency market, and that’s surely a mission accomplished for the company, which in fact, is conceived these days as the one to be followed in the whole industry.

Ripple has been showing some of the most consistent and significant steps on its path, even getting to create audacious strategies that for the rest of the companies seem to be unreachable.

Like so, is the bold move of working on hand by hand with the central banks around the globe, a fact that the company recently has loudly announced when stated they were addressing at least 40 or more of the world’s central banks with partnering proposals.

The game plan is not only well-elaborated, it is also very ambitious since of course, all of the commercial banks respond to their central bank figure, so if we see it through Ripple is targeting to engage as well with all of them. Thumbs-up on Ripple!

Ripple is keen to improve its transaction speed

With cryptocurrencies the faster the better, in fact, one of the reasons why the crypto users love these digital coins is because of the amazing speeds in operations, the main problem that on the other hand, regular financial forms haven’t been able to solve.

In this particular case Ripple has the ground all gained with a platform that allows the users to transact in a short period of time of 3 to 4 seconds, but still, the company feels like they can take it to another level; and to that responds the creation of a brand-new network denominated COBALT.

The new platform will perform transactions in the amazing time period of only 1 second, and even better, it is expected that when the platform is all set Ripple’s security could be improved even further.

Moreover, Ripple made public that COBALT will also manage to decentralize their system, a fact that could grant the company their spot on the Coinbase platform since the famous network only requires is that the coins function in a decentralized way.

Ripple refuses ICO possibilities

Ripple’s ledger is actually one of the most well-deployed among the market, on its decentralized and open-source platform many options are possible, including, of course, the possibility of launching the crypto tokens in it.

However, as recently was know different coders were trying to launch ICOs on the platform, recognizing that the ledger of Ripple is currently the best in the market, nonetheless, the company stated through a PR (press release) that they have no any intention of showing support or even promote ICOs on their platform.

Ripple is making its market wider

Ripple has made it today to finally appear in the Canadian market, the company was listed on the most advanced and important platform of the northerner country, CoinField, an exchange network in which its users will be able to trade using both XRP/USD and XRP/CAD.

The same way, at the end of March, Ripple made it to the British markets as it got its first pairing with GBT (Great Britain Currency) from LBX (London Block Exchange).

Ripple is maintaining its performance

Ripple Inc. has managed to perform in a better way than XRP, gaining more and more partnerships and even accomplishing to grow, an achievement of which, on the other hand, XRP hasn’t even been close to.

As a matter of fact, Ripple (XRP) is currently at a price of $0.47, a value that makes the coin decrease in a 4.3 percent, but in contrast, Ripple has maintained its third position in the market, and this fact let us conclude the XRP value won’t be under 1 USD for so long.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
