In recent time, there have been massive developments surrounding Ripple and blockchain technology. This continuous development could not be perceived as practical when anyone could talk about it last year.

Last year, the Chief Executive Officer of Ripple, Brad Garlinghouse mentioned how financial institutions like banks were going to integrate Ripple in their payment settlement, but his Public Relations team thought he was projecting little too high. In his statement at the SG FinTech festival 2018 that happened recently, Brad highlighted some of the series of developments that have taken place in the digital currency world.

Recently we have seen Ripple being implemented in the financial systems of major banks around the world and now its clients can send money across the border using the blockchain technology with ease – thanks to its framework.

Ripple, since being implanted in 2012, has been offering superior innovative implementations that have never been experienced leading to the continuous improvement of financial systems across the globe. This has had a positive effect on financial systems as transactions are done faster and efficiently enhancing customers trust in financial institutions and systems.

Considering the recent partnership between the Pan European Infrastructure, Target Instant Payment Settlement, and Ripple, it is expected the combination of the two efficient and effective systems are going to have positive outcomes.

Many Ripple clients, as well as European clients, will be able to utilize digital currencies as a medium of transacting virtual assets between digital platforms thereby increasing the use of digital money all over the world. It clearly shows how fast and advance in technology Ripple is moving.

The Pan European infrastructure is implemented in the Central Bank of Europe which currently is the head of the financial sector for European nations that use and implement European monetary policies in the region. It is composed of 19 countries that are member’s states of the European Union. The Euro is also termed as the most reliable currency in the world.

The sole purpose of the Target Instant payment system will be to create an instant platform that will enable the transaction of digital currencies all over Europe using the Central Bank of Europe.

The Central Bank will act as a  pathway that will facilitate the regulation of the transfer of settlement from one place to the other hence enhancing the transmission of cryptocurrency across the border, the world, and Europe. The current development will make it easier for many users to switch to Ripple blockchain as compared to other payment systems with time.

Ripple Blockchain Next Year

According to the CEO, financial institutions and banks will provide custody solutions for digital assets in the coming year. These custody solutions are products that are offered by the third party for storage and security purposes. Its introduction is with the expectation that it acts as the missing link between fund managers and investors who are seeking entry into the market.

With the development of banks, there will be more investors that will be willing to use digital currencies in their daily transactions.

If there is a possibility in the near future for IMF and Ripple Blockchain partnering and integrating their systems, it will spell good tidings in the entire blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem.

These could be very beneficial to the digital and financial world as it would mean that the instant digital payment system will be performed in the IMF system thereby being recognized globally and be utilized by users from different nations to transact their digital currencies across borders creating a great revolution.

With these continuous changes taking place, no one can disagree that Ripple will have a brighter 2019 considering everybody’s interest is in the adoptions and partnerships that are set to revolutionize the digital world in a big way.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

4 Reasons Why the New Bitcoin Rally Is Unlikely to Stop Now

After more than a year of declining prices, the crypto market is finally seeing a period of serious recovery — one that has already brought digital currencies to heights not seen in over half a year now.

Only days ago, Bitcoin surged past several major resistance levels and managed to exceed its yearly high of over $8,000. Already, many skeptics are predicting the soon end of the bull run, and the possibility of yet another sharp decline. However, there are signs that suggest otherwise — that this bull run is only getting started, and that it will not end anytime soon.

There are four reasons why this is the case, and they are as follows:

1) Bakkt

There is the long-awaited Bitcoin futures exchange, Bakkt, which recently announced that the July test date for Bitcoin futures is soon to be set. Bakkt’s launch was delayed multiple times already, so the announcement came as quite a surprise. However, it appears that it will happen quite soon, after all.

As soon as its arrival becomes a certainty, Bitcoin will likely skyrocket even further, just like gold did when gold ETF appeared in 2013.

2) Bitcoin completely ignored the hacking of Binance

Binance has been the largest crypto exchange by trading volume for a while now, and as such, many expected that, if anything were to happen to it, Bitcoin…

The crypto market’s recovery progresses further, and at a rapid pace, at that. Bitcoin has just surpassed the $8,000 mark, which is the first time its price has been that high since July of last year. In addition, the entire crypto market is making billions within hours.

Bitcoin (BTC) sees another serious surge

In the past 24 hours, the total crypto market cap has gone up by around $24 billion. Meanwhile, BTC price has grown by $1,000 within the same period, as the largest coin traded barely above $7,000 on early Monday. At the time of writing, the coin’s price sits at $8.014.31, with a 14% growth in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, the BTC market cap has gone up to $141.85 billion, and even the coin’s trading volume surged to over $31 billion.

While many are wondering whether this is a return to the massive heights seen back in 2017 or only a temporary surge which will soon see a correction — no signs of an upcoming decline have been noticed as of yet. In fact, new heights were made and then exceeded multiple times in the past week, with a massive 33% gain during that time. And, with Bitcoin’s dominance at 60%, many are expecting that massive altcoin surges are to be expected as well.

The growth of altcoins can already be seen, as Bitcoin
