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.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
