Ripple continues leading mass adoption while many investors don’t fancy it

Published

Ripple

Ripple (XRP) is among the top cryptocurrencies in the world. Its primary focus is to aid in global remittance payments and become the leading solution. As we do know, it still faces stiff competition with SWIFT. However, the cryptocurrency has attracted lots of attention ever since its inception, but still faces the debate of being a security or not, consistently. Additionally, most investors do not like Ripple or its products.

Technically, Ripple trades between the $0.27 and $0.3 levels. Also, its short-term price structure is still at lower highs and lower lows, but its chart shows us that it started to slow down after the drop from $0.35.

First possible support is the August low or 2018 low and the round number area $0.25. If it finds support from this area, then we will also have a bullish chart pattern called “Double bottom.”

Subsequently, a market analysis by a known Trader easyMarkets states that:

“XRPUSD is approaching our support at 0.3349 (horizontal overlap support, 61.8% Fibonacci extension, 61.8% Fibonacci retracement, short-term ascending support line) and a strong bounce might occur above this level, pushing price up to our major resistance at 0.3499 (horizontal swing high resistance, 61.8% Fibonacci extension, 61.8% Fibonacci retracement). Stochastics (89, 5, 3) is approaching support where a bounce above this level might see a corresponding rise in price.”

That said, Ripple got a step ahead as the cryptocurrency won a lawsuit to be not declared a security. The lawsuit has been “dismissed without prejudice” by the state court in California recently.

Ripple has also given an excellent insight into the one of its product, xCurrent, through a video. The video revealed how xCurrent aims to solve the problems that SMEs have been facing for an extended period including lack of transparency, traceability, and attached information. Ripple’s xCurrent focuses on solving these problems and become an everlasting solution to the cost of transactions that are associated with SMEs. Even though this was done, the blockchain firm couldn’t convince its community.

On the other hand, xRapid – another product from Ripple for cross-border payments is set to be launched before the year closes and it is undergoing different tests from Cuallix and Zipremit.

Ripple is planning to merge xVia, xRapid, and xCurrent together into one solution, known as Convergence; this was according to Jim Chauncey-Kelly, the Director of Talents Acquisition at Ripple.

As per the firm, the Convergence is software that synchronizes all of the Ripple’s product. It was also added that with Convergence, industries could move their capital from one country to another and still enjoy fast speed and flexibility, with low transaction cost.

Ripple has also answered the critics concerning the “centralization” of its protocol. David Schwartz, the CTO of Ripple stated that XRP is a decentralized coin just like Bitcoin. But there are still concerns and questions concerning the centralization of the blockchain project.

Nonetheless, Ripple seems to be leading as far as the mass adoption is concerned as even the companies such as Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group acknowledged the use of Ripple solution in different parts of the world. The company is seeking ways to stamp its position as the leading solution for global remittances. Its xRapid will go live very soon and this may attract more FinTech companies to adopt it.

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

Lotto Nation is Revolutionizing the Traditional Lottery Industry

Lotto Nation

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of this, there is essentially no oversight on what a lottery provider…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors

Aluna.Social

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve, unlock their full potential, and improve trading performance.  Cryptocurrency trading can…
