Ripple’s XRP is slowly but clearly going all the way up

Ripple XRP going up slowly

We can say one thing about Ripple’s XRP coin. It’s not just been stable; it’s been going steadily up all the time. It’s not been just reliable; it’s been a great choice. While Bitcoin and Ethereum have had good and bad days, XRP just keeps going up.

It’s performed exceptionally well. If we look at the three-month chart, we’ll find it’s been from  $0.47 to $1.20. It’s not been volatile, it’s been very reliable (when compared to other big players, at least), and it’s been growing all the time. Fear, uncertainty, and doubt have not applied to Ripple at all.

How’s Ripple doing it?

Ripple has had many resources. It’s liquid and reliable and it is listed in more exchanges than any other coin. Its latest listing is UpHold. It has a platform that includes a digital wallet that caters to debit and credit card’s capabilities. It allows for users to do financial transactions among 34 different currencies, commodities and digital assets. It will even offer XRP/USD pairing. This makes the XRP platform a great option for liquidity.

Then there’s Japan’s SBI Holdings, a banking conglomerate that has adopted XRP as a currency and doing an exchange on it. SBI‘s CEO Yoshitaka Kitao has said that the exchange will be “Number one” once it goes public.

On the third place, Ripple has been gathering some fantastic partners in the banking industry. One, as we all know, is Santander (considered to be the world’s best bank right now), another one is BankDhofar from Oman.

They already have more than a hundred banking partners, and they are expected to get as many as two hundred this year. Ripple is becoming an industry’s staple, and that should not be ignored.

Last but not least: Ripple’s XRP is making remittance transference quick, cheap, safe and reliable. It’s becoming the street’s man’s currency, and it’s successful at that. Just a couple of days ago there was this Reddit user who explained how he used XRP to pay for a haircut. How could you possibly beat that?

So, despite the current ‘worrysome’ trend of the market, it’s still safe to bet on Ripple (in fact, a golden chance as it went down by almost 4% in last 24 hours – that’s a good chance to buy it cheaply now). XRP is growing slowly, but inevitably, it solves problems that matter for people in the streets by offering an option that can pay for everyday goods and services.

This all makes it an excellent choice in the crypto market. You should keep an eye open for Ripple’s currency; it’s working, it’s becoming a viable means of payment for people who are out of the banking world but who do own a cell phone. It’s making the financial world more democratic. It’s a force we should all take into account.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto Billionaire Predicts Massive Price Growth by 2021

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
