Price analysis and predictions for Ripple (XRP) are a common sight to see on the internet, almost over every publication about cryptocurrency. Many of these price analysis and predictions should be with less seriousness, but when a leader and CEO of a major organization tweets a clear value prediction for a competitor company, you should certainly take notice.

As one of the leading virtual currencies by market cap, the third to be specific, Ripple (XRP) has not been spared in the ongoing market slump that the market has been experiencing taking investors by surprise.

Ripple (XRP) current price and how it works

Apart from being around since 2012, Ripple (XRP) as a blockchain technology represents one of those innovative platforms that is revolutionizing and solidly backing up financial institutions and banks all over the world with their quest to provide a fast and secure settlement. The blockchain technology aims to build customer trust and confidence by providing superior services to them.

Based on small free software that pursues the growth of a credit system, the Ripple system is based on an end-to-end paradigm that allows each Ripple node to function as a local exchange system. By doing this, the entire network decentralizes the internet by forming a decentralized mutual bank.

This is to mean, the Ripple (XRP) network is a distributed social service provider based on the trust and confidence of the existing individuals in real-world social platforms. In this way, financial interests are based on social interests. An extension of the current hierarchical banking system would equate a reduced version of the Ripple blockchain network. This is how powerful Ripple (XRP) as a blockchain technology and platform is.

At present, Ripple trades at $0.44933 marking a 6.05% decline from its yesterday price.

Ripple Developments

Although recording dismal prices over the past few months, many crypto analysts believe that Ripple will not only be able to fetch similar prices it peaked early this year, but it will be able to create new bearish prices as well. It is through this argument many crypto analysts believe and are encouraging investors to invest in the digital coin as now is the right time to invest in Ripple (XRP).

The cryptocurrency is increasing its liquidity chronologically as it keeps scoring new listings. Three more trustworthy exchanges including DX Exchange, The Cryptocurrency Exchange (an Australian exchange) and Unodax (India based) added Ripple (XRP) to their platforms just recently.

Ripple is constantly making the headlines with news of adding new corporate clients from all over the world. These clients are not your average clients but clients with strong financial clout.

Ripple (XRP) to reach $10 by the end of this year

Keeping these factors and other in mind, I believe Ripple (XRP) has all it takes to end the year having 10x it is worth currently, to trade at 10 US dollars or even higher. This is the reason why Ripple is looked upon as the best investment opportunity among other cryptocurrencies in the market right now. If indeed it rises to 10 US dollars, Ripple’s market cap will be equivalent to 20 cryptos in the market.

Therefore, if you are looking to invest your money into a digital asset that can get you high returns with minimal risks, Ripple is the right option for you due to its current low prices and future potentials it possesses. Long-term investors are set to be the greatest beneficiary of this great digital asset.

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…
