News reaching Global Coin Report, indicate that U.K Fintech startup, Revolut, listed Ripple (XRP) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on the App and Wallet on the 24th of May. In the announcement via the Revolut blog, the team was full of praise for both coins and cryptocurrencies in general. The team at Revolut had promised from last year, to add new cryptocurrencies constantly as part of their evolving services to users. XRP and BCH now join Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC) on the wallet.

The team had this to say about the addition and cryptocurrencies in general:

“Last year, we promised to add new Cryptocurrencies to the Revolut app, so say hello to XRP and BCH. We have always believed that the world of Cryptocurrencies should be open and available to everyone, and not reserved for the tech-savvy and digital currency enthusiasts.

So, back in December, we launched a product that would allow millions of our customers to instantly buy, hold and sell Cryptocurrencies at the touch of a button. No exchanges. No private keys. No cold storage. Just instant exposure at your fingertips.”

The Revolut app is very versatile in that it also provides a pre-paid debit cards (Mastercard and VISA) as well as allowing for the transfer of funds across the globe in a peer to peer manner for all its users. One can send or receive traditional fiat as well as the cryptocurrencies mentioned above with majority of the services on the app being free.

Also to note is the availability of a ‘vault’ in the app where you can save or lock up your funds for a specific amount of time via a savings scheme. There is also a tracker for your spending on the app, allowing the Revolut app to enable you to have access to traditional banking services at your fingertips. No more going to the bank or waiting in the mail for your transaction history.

With respect to the newly added coins of XRP and BCH, the crypto-markets have shown some stability today with the total crypto market capitalization holding steady at $333 Billion. XRP is trading at $0.611 with BCH trading at $1,027 at the moment of writing this. But hopes are high that the market will recover in the coming week.

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
