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.

Top 3 Crypto Trends That Might Go Big in Q2 2019



crypto trends

So far 2019 has brought a significant change to the crypto industry. Q1 of this year has seen the rise of the idea of IEOs, the crypto space has finally managed to shake off the bears, and numerous coins throughout the industry have seen their prices grow once again.

The latest rally happened only several weeks ago, and it allowed Bitcoin to surge up by $1,000. Most other coins followed in their own way, but the investors are now wondering what to expect out of Q2? The Q1 started off badly, but it ended up being extremely successful. The chances are that history might repeat itself in the second quarter, as there are some key trends that might point the way for the further development of the crypto market.

1. The rise of IEOs

Back in 2017 and early 2018, ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) were everything that the crypto space was talking about. Their popularity allowed startups to raise billions upon billions of dollars. Soon enough, however, that ended in a pretty bad way. STOs (Security Token Offerings) emerged as an alternative that does not depend on trust, follows regulations, and it actually holds value. However, asset tokenization might still be in its early stages, and this is something that might come back at some point in the future.

In 2019, however, IEOs (Initial Exchange Offerings) started attracting the…

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV



Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?




One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…
