There is no doubt that Ripple’s XRP is a unique cryptocurrency that is taking the shape of a protocol more than that of typical virtual currencies. XRP is the default token for Ripple.

Thanks to its unique nature in comparison to some of the other virtual currencies, Ripple (XRP) has succeeded in generating a lot of attention and interest from traders as well as investors.

In current time, hardly a day passes by without some information or news about Ripple (XRP), and as a member of the fast-growing virtual currency universe, Ripple continues to enjoy remarkable growth in fortunes.

The five-year-old business venture, which is led by Brad Garlinghouse, Ripple’s chief executive officer, is on the upward trend with its virtual currency, XRP, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Bitcoin and Ethereum.

It is this time we remember Ripple’s audacity last year when it compared itself to revolutionary companies such as Uber and Airbnb; companies that have managed to transform their respective markets

Why Should One Invest in Ripple (XRP)?

Ripple (XRP) Provides a Service

As one of its main strengths, Ripple (XRP) provides to the market a smooth experience when transferring funds globally using the power of its blockchain technology.

According to Ripple, this attribute allows financial institutions and banks to process their client’s settlements anywhere globally reliably, instantly, and almost free of charge.

Ripple Labs trades its digital token, XRP, through exchanges and institutions. In Q3 of last year alone, Ripple managed to trade over 53 million US Dollars’ worth of XRP.

Financial Institutions and Banks Require Virtual Currencies

Going by the technological advancements being witnessed globally, banks and financial institutions require vast amounts of liquidity to operate. This is one of the most pressing challenges banks and financial institutions have to face.

However, leading figures within the virtual currency market indicate that virtual assets such as XRP can be the perfect solution and tool to deliver and solve the liquidity problem. Crypto enthusiasts are already investing their money with the hope that banks will adopt a lot of Ripple (XRP) in the future to become their reserve currency.

Ripple (XRP) is Unique

In comparison to Bitcoin, for instance, Ripple (XRP) is not generated and does not depend on miners or mining. The mother company already generated roughly more than 99 billion virtual tokens.

Almost 55 billion of this number will be dispersed to users. Potential investors will have who wish to invest in Ripple (XRP) are required to have a digital wallet, the same way as other virtual coins such as Ethereum and Bitcoin.

Ripple (XRP) is Gaining Traction

Ripple (XRP) appears to be adopted and accepted by many financial players and exchanges around the globe. As of my last count, 60 exchanges have listed the digital coin on their platforms paving the way for the cryptocurrency to be adopted by financial institutions. Such companies include the likes of MoneyGram and other major financial players.

It is Profitable (for people with lots of patience)

In recent months, it is true Ripple has suffered negative price volatility, but it is in such situations that investors and traders can make money. Also, going by the number of companies that have adopted the token, it is just a matter of time when Ripple (XRP) goes the moon. To be honest, it is hard to tell when, but as things stand, it sooner or later will. Patience is the key.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
