Ripple Chief Market Strategist: XRP is two times better than Bitcoin

Since the inception of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, every single project has been taunted with being lacking in something. We all know Ripple’s XRP has been called a security for long now, Bitcoin tend to have some real issues in it though. Scalability has been a point of discussion on the Bitcoin platform. Lighting project was the closest solution to the scalability issue on the platform. Unfortunately, the lighting platform is not going to be in operation in full gear until the year 2020.

At present, thousands of settlements go unconfirmed, and Bitcoin’s blockchain technology is arguably said to be running at a 90 percent capacity. Bitcoin cannot afford to be behaving this way with its scalability issues considering the many competing options available in the market.

Thoughts of Cory Johnson on XRP being polished Bitcoin

In his usual nature, Cory Johnson is not letting Bitcoin’s scalability issues plaguing the number one ranked crypto go by without capitalizing on it, letting his voice known by saying Ripple’s XRP is two times better than BTC.

Naming some renown personalities like Paul Krugman, Johnson spoke about the many people who are complaining about Bitcoin blockchain technology’s failure to make significant development in the cryptocurrency side. Johnson said:

“What Bitcoin is going to do is make commentaries and critic remarks about how blockchain technology does not function for anything. Crypto critics claim that it takes about 20 minutes for Bitcoin to complete its transactions. Their remarks quickly shift from blockchain does not do anything to Bitcoin does not do anything.”

In regards to the mentality and perception of individuals about blockchain technology, Johnson stated that he believes that a couple of things happen when people get tangled in blockchain technology and start reading about it.

According to Johnson, there are many unintentional biases developed by individuals who have cashed their money in this industry. For example, the Ripple strategist gave the instance of Binance CEO statement when he said he would not be giving any reporter an interview if they did not have any investments in cryptocurrency.

According to Johnson, Binance CEO might be inviting some biased treatment if he goes by this approach, but one thing that individuals should try not to forget are the facts. For Bitcoin blockchain technology, it takes about 20 minutes to complete a transaction but for default Ripple virtual currency, XRP, it takes about 1 second to perform 1500 to 2000 transactions.

Cory added,

“The people who created XRP looked at the blueprint that Satoshi developed about Bitcoin and retorted to themselves that this is amazing. This could be reasonable at scale, but we can make it better ensuring some of the major issues that need total openness are settled.”

The Solutions Ripple Offers Suit Everyone

According to Johnson, it is not the wish of financial institutions, banks, and generally everyone to have their transaction-related information exposed, as they would always prefer more privacy and security as well. If this is your case, Ripple blockchain technology is your answer that can provide all that.

Concerning the blockchain industry and cryptocurrency ecosystem, Johnson says that a lot of companies are showing signs of adopting RippleNet’s technology in the future. But at present, Cory oozes in confidence that Ripple is leading the path in this regard.

At the time of writing, Ripple has over 100 paying customers, having moved over a billion US dollars’ worth of XRP across their platform. The blockchain firm is inventing new pathways for the entire financial industry.

In the end, in Johnson’s opinion, those critics that associate the scalability failures of Bitcoin to the shortcomings of blockchain technology can be compared to individuals who condemn a particular mode of transportation without considering the alternatives available.

Looking at the statistics between Bitcoin and the blockchain firm of which Cory Johnson is a part, it is safe to say that Ripple is Bitcoin 2.0.

As many are likely aware of, the previous twelve months were not particularly friendly to cryptocurrencies, and there were two major market crashes since January 2018. However, it could be that investors’ wishes are finally coming true, as the market is currently seeing actual gains. While there is still no certainty regarding this behavior, investors around the world are finding the current development to be quite refreshing.

One interesting development that was noticed these days is the increase of VeChain’s price, which is seeing minor gains at this time.

VeChain (VET) price grows

While most cryptocurrencies experienced some extreme ups and downs during their lifetime, VeChain is usually surprisingly unaffected by the market’s behavior. In fact, its price chart typically shows no major changes, and it seems pretty flat in comparison to other cryptocurrencies.

While this may be a good thing, as the lack of volatility means that the coin is more stable than most, the fact that the price is usually not affected makes the current gains that much more peculiar.

In the last 24 hours, VeChain’s price has grown by 2.16%, placing its value at $0.00401120 at the time of writing. The growth is minor, and the coin’s value only increased by a fraction of a cent, but this is still not typical behavior for this cryptocurrency, which attracted the attention of analysts and investors…

Solve.Care

A lot of articles have been written about an altcoin apocalypse.  With so many tokens entering the market, it is inevitable that not all of them will survive.  When trying to analyze pick out the best projects, the following criteria should be used:

  • Very active community
  • Strong potential for mass adoption
  • Valuable partnerships
  • Experienced leadership

If a project scores well in at least three of the above criteria, it’s a winner.  When it scores well in all four, it has the potential to be a blockbuster.  That potential blockbuster is Solve.Care.

Background

Solve.Care has developed a revolutionary platform that will significantly improve care outcomes by reducing healthcare administrative costs.  The platform will also go a long way toward eliminating a lot of the problems commonly seen within healthcare administration such as duplication, waste, abuse, and fraud.  I firmly expect Solve.Care to generate cost savings by facilitating peer-to-peer transactions that grant authority to stakeholders while empowering payers regarding cost control and oversight.

SOLVE token completed its token sale last year in May.  The company sold 350,000,000 tokens and still has 650,000,000 in its treasury.  The great news is that the token has been recently listed on both Bittrex and KuCoin, two of the largest and most trustworthy exchanges in the world.  Given the recent incidents, especially the Cryptopia hack, being on a trustworthy exchange is of paramount…

Bitcoin (BTC) lost about $100 in value in the last week, and, while reasons behind the drop in crypto prices can often be hidden and unclear — this time, that is not the case. The reason for this drop is believed to be the celebration of the Chinese New Year.

The New Year celebration was over more than a month ago for most of the modern world. However, things are a bit different in China. This is a country which is considered to be one of the oldest ones in the world, with a long and complex history. The country’s traditions are fascinating to many around the world, as so many of them are different from western culture. One of these traditions is the Chinese New Year.

The New Year celebrations in China start on January 28th, which was a week ago. The New Year itself is today, February 5th, although the celebrations and festivities are going to last until February 19th. For the people of China, and all those around the world who follow the country’s tradition, this is the time to relax, take a break, and perhaps travel and visit friends and family. But, what does it have to do with Bitcoin?

China and Bitcoin

Those who are new to the world of cryptocurrencies have likely already heard many stories about China banning Bitcoin trading and…
