Ripple, Verge, and Litecoin: Accelerations slow down but solidity grows

Ripple’s XRP crypto coin’s price is going up every fifteen minutes on average. It’s still below the raging channel’s line. It tested the $0.86 line, but it didn’t go beyond that, which renders it vulnerable to downside corrections. An Obama’s former regulator has recently said (not that it’s relevant under Trump) that Ripple and Ethereum break the country’s security regulations.

Gary Gensler (that is the man) says that further proof of authenticity is needed. Ripple’s current value seems to be utterly unaffected by such comments but, in general, those thoughts could affect the whole crypto industry (at least within the US).

Let’s put that aside for now and have a technical look at Ripple’s XRP

Right now Ripple is about the 50% FIB retracement level. It’s been dancing between $0.58 and $0.89, which means its value is supported by the ascending channel’s bottom trend line. Right now the XRP/USD rate is shaking around $0.85 with a simple moving average of fifty. Things look good for short-term trading, and it has a lot of momentum.

Verge’s Price 

Verge’s XVG price is another story. It went above the $0.1 psychological barrier, and it even had transactions above $0.11. But investors want safety and balance. XVG’s partnership with the Mindgeek (a big player in the porn/adult entertainment industry) kind of stopped growth. It’s been called a misunderstood partnership, yet profitable. But it could still grow a lot in the short run if only because it benefits so many users who want to remain anonymous and still transact.

But forget about Mindgeek. TokenPay is finishing some bank acquisitions in Germany, and they are also Verge’s (XVG) partner. This could make XVG the first cryptocurrency to be relevant in the very rigid (even more in Europe, even more in Germany) banking industry. TokenPay announced recently that they would make XVG debit cards available to their customers, and the community in general, sometime very soon.

Verge’s price is around $0.0801 right now. Keep an eye on it when you consult the 4-hour charts. It could be a great short-term option in the event of new declines in the market.

 Its value has been between $0.024 and $0.115 recently. But its market penetration is quite important so it should not go below $0.70 in the near future.

Litecoin’s (LTC) Price

Litecoin (LTC) has been under $150 lately. But it’s been gaining momentum as the 50 simple moving average works in its favor.

On the other hand, it’s been as high as $161 recently, but also as low as $112. Currently, $151 per token would be a safe bet. 

Current financial indicators are a bit confusing. Buyers and investors are going for $160 per token, but even this $150 is a good recovery sign for enthusiasts. Just keep watching, chances are Litecoin will remain a good option.

It has been almost an entire week since Justin Sun, the founder of TRON (TRX), announced a new big partnership for this cryptocurrency. His Twitter announcement did not provide a lot of information, except for the fact that the TRON partnership is with an industry giant worth tens of billions of dollars.

Even so, the entire crypto community started speculating about the new partner’s identity. Soon after the announcement, a new rumor emerged, claiming that the identity of an unnamed corporation was uncovered. According to the rumor, TRON’s new partner is none other than Baidu, one of the largest tech giants of China, which also represents this country’s largest internet search provider.

Baidu is often viewed as China’s version of Google, and if the rumors of a partnership with this company turn out to be true, this will be a big game-changer for TRON.

However, in days following the announcement, new reports started coming in with claims that the partnership will not revolve around blockchain technology. Instead, ODaily reported that the alleged partnership between TRON and Baidu will be focused on cloud computing. The report claims that TRON will be purchasing computing resources from Baidu.

Will Ripple (XRP) advocacy hike affect bitcoin dominance of China?

Currently, China is leading in Bitcoin mining industry by far, second to none for bitcoin mining power. Literally, it’s contributing over 70% of the network’s hash rate (a term that is used in describing the total processing power of a blockchain network). But how Ripple fits in here and what it has to do with that? We’ll talk about that a bit later below, let’s cover some in-depth facts about China’s dominance over Bitcoin first.

It’s a near-complete dominance by China on the BTC mining grid that has made it responsible for mining a majority of circulating bitcoins. A Beijing-based company, Bitmain Technologies, is highly responsible for extracting the significant part – more than half of the globe’s bitcoin, and alone, it has approached 50% of the total hash rate more than once.

The fact that China is controlling a majority of Bitcoin hash rate, clearly tells that it has the power of manipulating or merely destroy the bitcoin network if it gets enough support should it decide to take such a move. Therefore, this has led to serious concerns among countries including the US that China might get an edge in this cryptocurrency industry and possibly becoming a potential threat.

China is the biggest manufacturer of Bitcoin as well as cryptocurrency mining equipment. The reason behind the massive growth of mining farms in the country is because of cheap electricity bills.

Furthermore, the country has adopted several…

While most cryptocurrencies today still remain unstable and at the edge of falling into the red, there are some coins that are doing significantly better. One such coin is Ravencoin (RVN), which has surged by over 26% in the last 24 hours.

About Ravencoin

Ravencoin came to be as a hard fork of Bitcoin and was inspired by a popular book series-turned-television programme, Game of Thrones. The coin’s developers decided to make Ravencoin an open-source project that provides users with the ability to declare assets on their platform. The platform itself is decentralized, transparent, and secure.

Just as Game of Thrones’ ravens are used for spreading the news and truth, Ravencoin hopes to become a carrier of truth regarding the ownership of assets on the blockchain.

Ravencoin’s main use case is for performing P2P transfers, while it prioritizes security, autonomy, user privacy, and control. Additionally, as a coin fighting for truth and transparency, it also stands against censorship.

Ravencoin got listed on Binance prior to MainNet launch

Following the last week’s announcement that Ravencoin is getting officially listed on Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange ba trading volume, Ravencoin experienced a large price surge. At one point, the surge took the coin’s value up by over 31%. At the time of writing, however, the coin is still growing, with an increase of 26.15% in the last 24 hours.

Getting listed on Binance has brought Ravencoin to the top…
