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.

XRP Continues to Struggle Despite the Bullish Market

The crypto market, in general, has been seeing a rapid recovery for months now, especially when it comes to top coins. Bitcoin has already surpassed the levels it was seeing before the November 2018 market crash, with the current price of $6.852 at the time of writing.

However, the same is not true for XRP, the third largest cryptocurrency, which is still trading below its largest support. While its price did try to test the resistance at $0.312 several times in the past weeks, the coin saw a rejection each time it approached it. Combine this with the fact that XRP’s price against the USD is trading within a descending triangle, and it is easy to understand why many investors are worried.

Is XRP about to start spiraling down?

XRP is a massive coin, despite the fact that its price is low. As such, it has a major impact on the market, and if it were to go down, it is likely that it would take a large portion of the market with it. As mentioned, Bitcoin itself is advancing rapidly. However, historically, such massive uptrends often lead to just as massive potential downtrends.

As things are now, many expect it to come once BTC hits $7,000. However, many are looking for other unfortunate events that might trigger a massive sell-off. Experts have been warning that events…

While TRON (TRX) managed to become one of the most popular projects in the crypto history, the coin itself has been in and out of the list of 10 largest cryptos by market cap several times by now. Recently, it got pushed out of the list once again, although not very far. After briefly holding the 10th spot, it got replaced by Cardano (ADA) which is, similarly to TRON, yet another challenger to Ethereum.

Meanwhile, TRON’s founder and CEO, Justin Sun, appears not to be worried about the current situation. In fact, he recently stated that he believes TRON will climb back up among the top 10 coins within a month. However, he gave another prediction, and this one appears to be quite bold.

Justin Sun’s TRX and BTT predictions

According to Sun, another cryptocurrency that recently joined the TRON ecosystem, BitTorrent (BTT), will soon see a massive surge which will bring it among the top 30 coins. Sun predicts that this will happen at some point during Q2 of this year.

Of course, Sun’s bullishness when it comes…

Cryptocurrency investors are always on the lookout for the best investment opportunities, and as such, they follow closely what happens with the smaller coins, as well as the largest. A lot of people have a general rule to only invest in the largest, and well-established cryptocurrencies. This is a good rule that can allow them to avoid scams and increase their chances of getting a decent profit.

However, there are investors who are ready to take the necessary risks in order to become early adopters of future stars of the crypto space. The space is alive, and the top 100 list constantly changes. Even the list of top 10 largest cryptos looks a lot different today than it did a few years ago. Sure, some coins are the same, but they are in the minority.

With all that in mind, we will now take a look at top 4 cryptocurrencies that are not even among the 100 largest coins — but they do seem to have the potential to change that in the future.

Kin (KIN)

As mentioned, coins enter and leave the list of top 100 largest cryptos all the time, and KIN is a perfect example of this. The coin currently has a market cap of $35.98 million, and it ranks as the 120th largest coin at the moment. However, the coin did not sink because…
