Ripple (XRP) is characterized being one of the cryptos in the market that continually plays the most strategic moves to keep its position in the charts, and at the same time, be an active piece on the breaking of paradigms of the cryptocurrency world.

In fact, Ripple is working with more than 100 financial institutions around the world at the moment, among which are included renowned enterprises such as Santander, American Express, MoneyGram, Western Union (the company seems to have changed its mind just recently, though), and others.

However, it is not a secret to anybody that XRP as a token has been suffering pronounced losses in the last couple of months, a fact that is mostly attributed to the generalized slumps of the market, one of the hardest difficulties the sector has faced in history.

Like this, the token is currently looking for a solution to surpass the prices issues, and apparently, it already has come up with a very brilliant solution. This time Ripple (XRP) is looking forward to approaching a new target, and nothing seems to be more promising than engaging like this with the remittance payment sector, an alliance that may take the value of the coin to $5 or more. Let’s take a look at how it goes.

Asian remittance payment marketplace

Remittances are sent all over the world every day, and this is definitely a great niche to put the eyes on, considering the inefficiencies that cross-border transactions tend to incur in.  This said, I think I speak for all of us when I say that there’s actually not a better candidate in the cryptosphere to remove the frictions of transacting from one country to another, than Ripple (XRP).

Ripple is willing to remove the slowness while sending remittances abroad with the deployment of its solution xRapid, a product created to source liquidity and provide a platform to transact easier, cheaper, and simply better. But to make this happen, the company needs to define a starting point, and for this, Ripple has chosen nothing less than the Asian marketplace.

The Asian marketplace is one of the biggest in the world. In fact, Asia is considered the world center for remittances, being a continent where the remittance market produced an amount of 465,857,000,000 US dollars just in 2016, and is forecasted to hit the value of 500,482,287,387 US dollars by the end of the year.

This way, if Ripple manages to achieve its mission, it would be targeting both low and high volume remittance transactions in Asia, a milestone that could skyrocket the price of the coin to $5 in the short term, and even more in the long run.

The math behind this is actually quite simple. If we consider the forecasted value on remittances by the end of the year (500,482,287,387) and divide it by the amount of circulating XRP (around 100,000,000,000), we have the mentioned value per coin of 5 USD. However, this is only if we consider the whole amount of XRP in existence, but if we discount the equivalent percentage of XRP that belong to HODLERS (10%), then the value could reach to $5.25 in just a couple of months.

Furthermore, in lights of the adoption of xRapid for remittance payments, more coins will be used, which can translate into a larger amount of XRP in circulation. Like this, taking into account the 25% discount of HODLERS, the price would be $5.66, and even beyond, considering 50% the price would reach the mark of $6.25.

Conclusion

Ripple (XRP) one more time is proving to have the best decisions in the market and to say the least, this is something that will be beneficial not only for the crypto but as well for the thousands of people who struggle to send remittance back home every day.

The possibilities of this becoming a reality are immense and even more to expand to new horizons, for instance, at a global scale and not only in Asia, which, of course, would represent an incredible boost for the price of the third largest coin of the market, XRP. Hold tight, Ripple bull is coming.

3 Things to Avoid if You Want Your ICO to Succeed

ICO

Initial Coin Offerings, or ICO, have become quite popular in 2017, which is something that also continued throughout 2018. In fact, there were hundreds, if not thousands of them so far. However, no matter how many of them were organized, most never managed to make it into the market and achieve their goals.

Analysts claim that there are a lot more failed ICOs than there are successful ones, which has caused a lot of people to simply give up on the idea. However, many are still curious to know what went wrong, and while failed ICOs can be studied for years without discovering absolutely every flaw, some of the bigger ones can be spotted right away.

This is why we will now list top three reasons why so many ICOs failed, and everyone who is thinking about launching one should pay close attention.

1. The lack of demand for the product

According to estimates, around 60% of ICOs often fail at the first stage simply for the lack of interest in what they offer. When someone comes up with an idea and launches an ICO in order to raise money, they are presuming that people will be interested in investing in this idea. In addition, prior to making an announcement that an ICO is coming, it is wise to ensure that the announcement will be heard in the first place.

Additionally, ICOs need to be approved by appropriate…

Reasons Behind The New Bitcoin Crash

Cryptocurrency investors and supporters experienced quite a shock last week with the latest Bitcoin crash. Almost every single one of top 100 cryptocurrencies trading in the red. Not only that, but most of them experienced massive losses, often larger than 12%, or even 15%.

The event was unexpected and all cryptos, with the exception of a handful of stablecoins, lost a large part of their value. However, as always, Bitcoin is the one receiving the most attention, especially since this is the first time that BTC has dropped below $6,000 in a long while. Right now, Bitcoin is still losing value, with its current price being at $5,503.11 per coin, and a drop of 12.76% in the last 24 hours.

After the initial shock, a lot of investors started wondering and researching the new crash. The main question still remains: Why did this happen?

While this is more than understandable, especially considering how much money, time, and patience people have invested in crypto, the reasons behind the new crash remain obscure to many. Because of that, we are now going to explain two events that are most likely to be causing this situation.

1. The selloff

This is believed to be the main reason for the new crash of Bitcoin. The selloff came as a consequence of the last year’s bull run, which has launched BTC and other coins to entirely new heights. Because of that, numerous…

WINGS

WINGS, a decentralized crowdfunding platform based on the Ethereum blockchain, has had a great run over the past two months. Culminating in a peak of US $.23 just a few days ago, the currency behind the product has more than doubled since it’s lows of early September.

Despite the slight downturn WINGS is currently experiencing, this crypto-favorite may not be done running up the green candles on your favorite exchange just yet. A small drop like we had today was actually expected and could be considered healthy by long-term investors. These dips are also appreciated by those of us waiting to get in on a project we feel has real potential. WINGS has shown us that potential and is now presenting a great buying opportunity for speculators and traders looking for the next wave of support to lift this coin into the stratosphere.

What is WINGS?
WINGS was created to nurture project proposals via the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) model. Using blockchain networks and smart contracts, the platform allows the WINGS community to promote proposals with the greatest chance of positive returns. WINGS, in essence, is a decentralized forecasting ecosystem, where token holders are given an incentive to make choices concerning projects on the platform.

The DAO is a popular concept for crypto-projects that want to remain entirely on the web. Using the peer-to-peer technology of blockchain and smart contracts to enforce the rules of participation is…
