Ripple pilots businesses to plead US to enact an affable crypto approach




The US has had a sturdy stand on cryptocurrency and blockchain trading. The position, however, seems to be affecting big guns in the industry. As a result, a group of companies led by Ripple has joined hands to try and convince the US legislators to implement a friendly crypto environment.

In this move, Ripple among other small start-ups will somewhat pay lobbyists in crypto. This declaration comes after the coalition stated that it would hold on a cooperation lobbyist fir, Klein/Johnson Group, which is the linchpin in Fintech problems.

The US individuals were suspended from buying or mining cryptocurrencies for some reasons. First, the state believes the use of digital currency will be used by the majority to evade paying tax. Second, villain states will use the currency and bypass the US warrants. Also, it was noted that this form of currency would facilitate illegal activities.

The climate around the US regulatory agencies such as SEC (the Securities and Exchange Commission) is making the group of major players in the industry feel endangered. These regulatory agencies have been on the hunt to shut down ICOs and illegal cryptocurrency projects. Instead of handling them like special assets or commodities, they were being treated as securities.

As of this publication, the government of US is split on how to control the cryptocurrency sector. The primary concern for the split is on how to define different kinds of cryptocurrencies that fall in the utility tokens, commodities or securities tokens categories.

Securing America’s Internet of Value Coalition is the name these major players are calling themselves. They are optimistic that the US will validate their request and allow a friendly crypto ecosystem. Above all, this will be powering force pushing and funding demonstrative legislation expected to come out of DC.

Executive chairman of Ripple, Chris Larsen said the following regarding the new collaboration:

“We understand this cryptocurrency/blockchain is complex, and there is a lot of misguidances out there. The good news is that in DC, there is a lot of interest in this topic.”

Lobbyist will be earning 25K USD per month from the coalition on top of the 10k XRP tokens that will be taken as cash in all reports to the federal lobbying companies.

Larson explained that the move to make part of the payments in digital form was a deliberate as they can study the game. As a result, they will be a position to represent cryptocurrency, XRP to be specific before legislative supremacy.

Larsen stated:

“It gives them some upside and some risk as well. Hopefully, they will get a taste of the industry in a way that hits home.”

Uncertainty surrounding Cryptocurrency Constitution and Definition

Cryptocurrencies do not fall under the very same regulatory umbrella, and this is the reason to why it’s hard to classify them. Still, this is why it’s hard to divide roles amongst the US several regulatory agencies like the CFTC and the SEC.

Multiple courts of US have added more confusion with their rulings. The most recent is that of the federal judge who announced that digital currencies should get treated as the commodities. The judgment in question is a vow that the CFTC, not the SEC should take problems surrounding cryptos care. These are good news to the crypto investors.

In a ruling, the judge responsible for making the decision said:

“the Congress enacted the securities policies to balance investments, in whatever form they are made and by whatever name they are called..”

After changing lobbyist minds in DC, the chances are that might help stimulate friendly cryptocurrency policies which are needed with the industry. Investors are monitoring how regulatory firms are reacting to products such as the Bitcoin (BTC) ETF and Bakkt, the forthcoming cryptocurrency exchange.

Considering all the legal trouble Ripple has been facing in the past, this indeed looks to be a right investment of time and sources by the blockchain firm.

And of course, if the group succeeds in making US government understand the way they want, it will be a massive win for not only Ripple or the group of businesses standing by side of it but the whole crypto industry. Time will tell if US regulators change its mind regarding crypto or not; still, the group deserves a thumbs up.

Why Binance May Be Crucial for Tron (Trx) to Reach $1




TRON (TRX) has been one of the most popular crypto projects in the past year. The coin has received a lot of attention from the entire crypto community, and although the impressions may differ —  the fact is that TRX is one of the most talked-about coins, even today.

However, while the project managed to achieve a lot in less than a year — launch its MainNet, start multiple massive projects, launch dozens of dApps, hundreds of smart contracts, its own DEX, new token, and more — its price remains quite low. Undoubtedly, one of the reasons for this is its massive supply. TRX circulating supply is over 66 billion coins, while the total supply is over 99 billion.

Even so, the coin is believed to be massively undervalued, with its current price sitting at $0.028129, according to TradingView. This price, together with a market cap of $1.88 billion, pushed the coin out of the list of top 10 largest cryptocurrencies, and it currently sits at 11th spot. But, many believe that this is not a permanent position for TRON. In fact, its community believes that it is only a matter of time before TRON rises through the ranks, and its price hits $1. And, the way for the coin to achieve this is believed to be through Binance.

Why Tron (TRX) Price Won’t Remain Low for Long




TRON (TRX) has been one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in recent years. The project has achieved a tremendous amount of success in less than a year, and while the first birthday of its MainNet is approaching, TRON certainly continues to impress to this day.

With that said, its price is still noticeably low, and many would agree that the project is heavily undervalued. The low price even allowed other projects to push it out of the top 10 list, with TRX currently being the 11th largest cryptocurrency by market cap. However, it is likely that TRON will not remain undervalued forever, and that its price might soon see a surge that its entire community has been waiting for, for a long time now.

Why TRX might see growth soon

As many undoubtedly know, TRON is a lot more than just a cryptocurrency. It has developed a massive ecosystem, which offers a development platform for coins, smart contracts, and dApps. It also acquired BitTorrent last year for its Project Atlas, which will allow torrent users to earn crypto through participation in content sharing.

For this purpose, it also launched BitTorrent (BTT) token, which saw its launch on January 28, 2019 on Binance Launchpad. This was dubbed the most successful ICO in history at the time, although several coins launched since then have broken its record.

In addition,…

3 Cryptocurrencies Most Likely to Follow Bitcoin’s Performance




For more than a year, the cryptocurrency market has been dominated by bearish influence, with most coins seeing constant drops, or stagnation, at best. This all changed in the past few months, starting with Bitcoin which once again started leading the market up, bringing one minor rally after another.

BTC itself experienced massive losses in 2018, with its price going down by around 84%. Most other coins among the top 10 mirrored its performance, and some of them experienced even greater losses. However, now that Bitcoin sees gains again, these cryptocurrencies are still following its example, and many of them have seen massive breakouts. Some of the more notable altcoins that followed Bitcoin’s recent example are Ethereum (ETH), Stellar (XLM), and Cardano (ADA).

Ethereum performance mirroring Bitcoin’s price

As mentioned, Bitcoin led every rally so far, but before it did, its price first went through what is known as an ascending triangle pattern. The pattern held for around five months, which is exceptionally long for the crypto world. However, once the pattern was finally broken — the coin’s price skyrocketed, more than doubling itself within only two months.

One thing to note is that Ethereum performed in pretty much the same fashion. After five months of struggle and confusion for investors, the second largest cryptocurrency also managed to break the pattern and skyrocket as well. It…
