You think Amazon has become so big that it does not need any other company’s tech to keep growing? Think again. If the tech is as advantageous as Ripple’s XRP and other solutions, then why not. Here in this post, I’ll try to explain why Ripple’s technology would be the best option for giants like Amazon to reach the next level.

So, in recent times, everyone in the cryptosphere seems to be so worried about the conditions of the market that inevitably many of the holders are starting to succumb to the generalized pressure, and are selling their holdings to protect their investments.

In this sense, for the one part, it results in a very comprehensible action, it just doesn’t seem like the takeoff is at the back of the corner. But on the other, it looks as well like many of the enthusiasts and investors are simply forgetting the normal behavior of the sector, and how we tend to go from the very bottom to a massive peak in a matter of time.

In relation to this, some of the most important figures in the crypto world have shared their thoughts in an attempt to calm the masses. For instance, the CEO of IOHK and co-founder of Cardano (ADA), Charles Hoskinson, recently stated that this is not something new, he said that,

“we’ve been here before,” and as we did before we will manage to take control of the market one more time, we just need to remember that is not that big a deal, “everything’s fine.”

Following the line of being calmed, one may think this is actually the best time to think of the possibilities that many cryptos have, and the help they can provide to the whole market. For instance, Ripple’s XRP, which has the potential for adoption by giant platforms like Amazon could give a quick upturn to the current scenarios. Let’s see how.

What Ripple has to offer

Rumors of a likely adoption of Ripple’s XRP by giants companies are actually not that new. In fact, at the end of last year, it was commented already that Amazon could be adding XRP as a payment solution on their platform, which in case of happening would certainly be great news for the crypto world. But what does Ripple have to offer that may be of interest for Amazon and other tech giants? Here we enlist a few characteristics:

  1. Transaction speed and cost: Ripple’s XRP has proven to be very trustable crypto while making a transaction. In fact, it takes only 3.3 seconds for Ripple’s platform to make a transaction, and when it comes to costs, it is by far one of the cheapest solutions in the cryptosphere with a fee per transaction of only $0.0004, which undoubtedly would be characteristic of interest for Amazon.
  2. Business relations: Ripple has established the most solid partnerships all across the globe, and the best of all is that it has engaged with thousands of banking institutions, creating like this a link between virtual currencies and the regular financial system. Also, the crypto possesses a large number of prominent endorsements already, such as the ones of MasterCard, American Express, Banco de Santander, Western Union, and others; and this, to say the least, is for sure something that would represent a huge benefit for a company like Amazon.
  3. Accountability: Putting aside the current conditions of the market, Ripple’s XRP has always characterized for being one of the top 3 cryptos with the lowest value per coin, which, of course, represents a huge advantage if we take into consideration how would it be the conversion from crypto to fiat money on the Amazon’s platform.

Conclusion

There isn’t a doubt that when it comes to considering a crypto to help Amazon to go further, XRP is the best option. However, some pieces of stuff should be considered as well to think of this as an actual possibility.

For instance, the integration of XRP in each one of the Ripple’s solution could be an essential step towards a broader acceptance, and on the other hand, the adoption on important exchanges such as Binance and Coinbase could also be of use.

Concerning Coinbase, many things still need to be resolved before this becomes a reality, but when we talk about Binance, the possibility is way closer. In fact, Wiss Ratings recently declared that they “think that the #XRP is the fastest digital asset to transfer funds between exchanges.” A message they concluded by saying that “It only makes sense for #Binance to use it as the base #currency.”

We can all be sure that great things are coming shortly. Will Ripple’s XRP be used on Amazon platform? Stay tuned. We all may be surprised.

After the recent Tether (USDT) incident, a lot of investors started paying more attention to stablecoins. However, they were quite popular long before USDT started losing its value, and a lot of new ones were in development for a while now. These days, the stablecoin invasion is in its full swing, with around 57 coins being around — either already in circulation, or about to enter.

While most crypto investors already know this, we should explain that stablecoins are cryptocurrencies that are backed by another asset. This other asset is often a fiat currency, such as the USD. This is done so that their price would always be the same. with each coin being backed by the same amount, which is usually $1. That way, the coin is able to escape volatility, and ensure stability, hence the name.

While there were numerous stablecoins in circulation already, the one that made them known and popular was Tether (USDT). This is a coin issued by the Tether company, which claims that it can back each coin in circulation with 1 USD. However, since the company failed to provide proof that it actually has enough money to do so, the coin lost its credibility, and investors started dumping it.

This has left an empty spot in the space, and numerous stablecoins rushed in to fill the gap left by Tether. Today, we will review some of these coins.

So, today, we will discuss why this is, and why you should add BAT to your investment portfolio.

1. The project’s goal

BAT has a goal to solve a problem that all of us are already very familiar with, and that is the issue of online ads. For a lot of people, ads are annoying, often irrelevant, and they tend to pop up in all the wrong moments. No to mention that they are intrusive, advertisers steal or buy your private data in order to process it and target you with more appropriate ads, and more.

Most people choose to deal with this by installing ad block extensions. However, what if there is a better way to go around it?

This is where BAT comes in. The project uses its technology to solve this problem by blocking ads unless users decide to interact with them by…

How and when Electroneum (ETN) mass adoption will catch fire

Before we talk about how Electroneum is thriving towards mass adoption, let’s take on some basics. What is the meaning of “mass adoption” and what cryptocurrencies could really achieve it? The answer to these two questions will ultimately determine the destiny of the cryptoverse.

Sooner or later some tokens will become useful (and used by) a lot of people in the real world. That will create demand for those tokens and that demand will bring its value up. It will be the point at which the crypto market becomes mature, one that answers to real economic forces (such as supply and demand) instead of being a toy for speculators as it still is today.

So let’s start at the beginning. Mass adoption means that, given any kind of technology, product or commodity, at least seven out of ten people know what it and what they can do with it. This definition doesn’t take into account if they actually use it, only if they know about it. Think about Facebook, for instance. Not everybody you know has an active account there.

But chances are almost everybody you know understands what it is and that they could start using it anytime they wanted (if they’re not using it already) at a rate higher than 70%. Maybe a more explicit example is coffee. The percentage of coffee drinkers in the US is about 83% which is enough to ensure it’s mass-adopted. And everybody…
