Ripple is showing positive signs for a bullish trend at the moment and the CEO of deVere Group, Nigel Green believes that the price of XRP could move above $1 before the end of the year.

Ripple’s XRP is the third-largest cryptocurrency and has a market capitalization of $21 million at the press time. Green believes that Ripple is well-suited for the surge and anticipates Ripple’s utility to increase for more adoption by many FinTech companies and organizations around the world.

Green also stated this: “Cryptocurrencies are the future of money and, clearly, XRP is proving to be one of the most useful cryptocurrencies for businesses, organizations, and individuals.”

deVere Group CEO continued,

The use of XRP is set to increase, and naturally, this will positively impact its price. I think it is likely that we’ll see it hit the $1.00 price level before year-end. It could even be double this in 12 months’ time as XRP adoption and usage soars.”

Nevertheless, Green made his prediction due to the way cryptocurrency is changing the world today concerning the finance and money transfer. Ripple (XRP) has already shown it can revolutionize cross-border payments and global finance.

Recent Ripple Strides

Ripple is changing the way cross-border payments are being done, and this has become a top solution for global remittances. Trust payment firms such as MoneyTap and TransferGo has adopted Ripple’s technology.

Additionally, Ripple will be launching one of its products, xRapid in less than a month now, but a specific date hasn’t come up yet on when this product will be launched. It is important to know that the announcement of this product was revealed by the Sagar Sarbhai who is the Asia Pacific and the Middle East regulatory relations head at Ripple.

Also, XRP is set to become one of the main medium of payment for a new technology startup company known as Coil (in fact the platform has already started functioning). Coil, a startup company based in San Francisco has taken on to create a new platform to help contents and its creators.

It is important to know that Coil makes use of Web Monetization protocol to pay content creators. Coil also aims to use Interledger protocol “which means that you’re not tied to any currency, token, or single company.”  The company further said this:

“We’re going to start off with background on Interledger and Web Monetization before diving into how to use it yourself. The project aims to address slow block finality, high transaction fees and unsophisticated payment channel constructions that exist within blockchain payment solutions today. The team is building a decentralized payment network leveraging Interledger for clearance and is actively working on an Ethereum plugin for the protocol.”

Ripple also is experiencing a sell-off as Jed McCaleb, Ripple’s co-founder has decided to increase the sale of XRP tokens he possesses. It is also worth noting that that within a week, ending Wednesday (September 26th, 2018), McCaleb increased his token sell-off to over 500,000 XRPs. Even though McCaleb’s sell-off seems massive at the moment, it has affected the price nor the market activity of Ripple.

As the global economy continues to deal with the economic fallout due to the ongoing pandemic, companies are coming to terms with the fact that normalcy may not return for quite a while.  Many economists are wondering how the business landscape will look a year or more from now.  It’s certainly possible that many businesses, such as retailers and restaurants, may be unable to survive the current downturn.  But while some businesses will falter, others will emerge stronger than ever.

Traditionally, when economies go through a severe downturn, companies adapt.  Those that maintain the status quo usually have great difficulty while those that adapt prosper and conquer.  One possible example of this is Lotto Nation.  Thanks to the entrepreneurial skills of Nils Thomson, the Founder and CEO of Lotto Nation, the company is attempting to completely modernize the traditional lottery industry.

Current Lottery Model is Severely Outdated

It’s safe to say that nearly every human that has ever walked the earth has fantasized about winning the massive jackpot that would completely change their life.  These dreams have turned the global lottery industry into a $302 billion market that is expected to reach $380 billion by 2025.  Despite this predicted growth, the industry suffers from a variety of problems that are preventing it from really exploding.

Perhaps the biggest problem is that traditional lotteries are centralized.  Because of…

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
