Published

on

Ripple XRP

A majority of digital coins and altcoins ended the month of July in overarching declines including Ripple (XRP). The XRP USD pair managed to cancel most of the gains accrued since early days of July.

As we usher in a new month, Ripple is still showing signs of free falling below the 0.45 US dollar mark after declining the support emphasized by the 23.6 percent Fib level with the last swing appreciate from lows of $0.424 and depreciate from highs of $0.5204 to settle at $0.4469 (it just jumped above 0.45 today after increasing in value by 4.5% in last 24 hours).

Moreover, Ripple (XRP) is exchanging within the limits of a falling wedge pattern signaling a price surge and breakout in the offing shortly.

Bitrue Exchange Lists Ripple XRP as a Base Currency

The crypto space continues to attract more investors and players in its jurisdiction with this week marking the official launch of Bitrue. Although unknown to many, Bitrue is a virtual currency exchange that has long-ambitions of becoming the most spontaneous and secure option for crypto-investors globally.

One attribute makes the Taiwanese exchange predominantly stand out from the pack. Bitrue announced their intention to list XRP, Ripple’s virtual currency, as a base coinage on its network. This move marks a huge adoption step for Ripple in the crypto market.

Bitrue intends to offer transparency to the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) market by availing a qualified selection of ICOs. Remarkably, Bitrue is also showing interests in partnering with Wanchain, an infrastructure platform that can connect with various digital assets.

According to the CEO of Bitrue, Curis Wang, the exchange can screen interested candidates listing only legal and promising digital coins and altcoins on their platform. By doing so, Bitrue will be able to create and develop a healthy environment for trading and for everyone interested in engaging the exchange.

DCEX Announces Ripple XRP as a Base Currency on its Platform

Meanwhile, DCEX was the very first virtual currency exchange that used Ripple (XRP) as its base currency. It recently opened registrations to start for its network. DCEX intends to begin trading in the coming weeks if not days, according to a press release that was issued on Monday.

DCEX plans to offer 15 digital tokens for trading with XRP as the base pair. The digital tokens include Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin (BTC), Tron (TRX), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and Ethereum (EOS) among other digital currencies.

According to an official release by DCEX webpage, the exchange intends to add more exchanging pairs in the coming week with USD/XRP trading might be supported for institutional or corporate clients.

xRapid Adoption in the Market

In recent time, xRapid has seen a somewhat positive response in regards to adoption. The way xRapid can complete international settlements within a short period is by using XRP as the bridge currency. For instance, in a KRW to USD transaction, KRW is converted to XRP using a Korean exchange via banking systems, transferred on the Ripple (XRP) ledger to an American exchange wallet then converted into USD in conclusion.

There are market speculations doing rounds suggesting SBI holding might use xRapid in conducting cross-border transactions. There is evidence that indicates that this merger is true and might be in completion stages.

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

on

2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
