FUD to perish, Ripple’s XRP is an excellent long-term investment, here’s why



Ripple XRP

The crypto market has been conquered by three different coins for a considerable time now. In this sense, Bitcoin (BTC) claims to be the gold. Ethereum (ETH) for its part was proclaimed as the silver of the cryptosphere, which should be enough reasons for us to believe that Ripple’s XRP would be the bronze, as the token is the third largest cryptocurrency of the market after the cryptos mentioned above.

But, is XRP (XRP) really comparable to other cryptos in the market? Well, to give a response to this question we need to see a few details on the third-largest coin. Let’s check them out.

The uniqueness of Ripple

One of the most characteristic features of Ripple’s network is that each transaction that occurs on the system is certified by different nodes, which as a result, gives the distributed network a more resistant mechanism in case of potential risks.

However, what seems to be more shocking about Ripple is the division that the company has made in regards to its solutions, platforms, cryptocurrency and more. Like this XRP represents the virtual coin of the company, RTXP (Ripple payment protocol) represents the technology behind its operations, Ripple network represents the network that channels the technology and protocols, and finally, Ripple represents the company itself.

Furthermore, all investors can hold XRP without any restriction, and the Gateway that the platform uses acts as the credit intermediary between the two parties involved in the transaction.

Nevertheless, despite the outstanding differentiation between Ripple’s XRP and other top cryptos in the market, it just doesn’t seem like the sector is treating the cryptocurrency any differently, which means the value of the coin in spite of being constructed differently is suffering the same.

But, if the situation is the same for XRP, is it possible to believe that XRP would be a great type of investment in the long run? Well, we have reasons to believe this is a fact, and here I explain all the details (as much as I can briefly).

Why invest in XRP?

  • Trading price: XRP is currently trading at a price of $0.28, and this represents almost a 90 percent decrease from its all-time high of $3.37. Besides, the crypto serves as a bridge to exchange different cryptocurrencies, and rumors of addition on Coinbase are every time more substantial, so every investor who would like to buy as an asset at a price below the $1 mark should consider XRP as the best option of the market.
  • Banks adoption: It Is not a secret to anybody that concerning negotiation and partnerships, Ripple has deployed the most marvelous strategies, which have resulted in the approach of thousands of banking institutions from all across the globe. In fact, studies prove that more than 50 of the largest banks in the world are considering the adoption of Ripple’s XRP as a solution for their payment systems.
  • Transactions speed: XRP is the token with the fastest transaction speed in the market, it only takes 3 seconds for the platform to deploy a transfer, and it actually has the capacity of executing 1,500 transactions per second, which compared to the $5 trillion transactions per day that its chief rival SWIFT can make, represents a tremendous advantage.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming



Bitcoin crash

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…

Top 3 Coins to Buy Before They Go Big




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.


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…

Can Crypto Credit Cards Disrupt the Fight Against Financial Crime?



crypto credit cards

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
