Ripple (XRP) Makes Three New Wins – So Much for Controversy




Despite the recent controversy, numerous lawsuits, and a still ongoing question what Ripple (XRP) really is by nature, this coin continues to make new victories. The latest ones include XRP being listed in three brand new crypto exchanges, which are marking a whole new era for XRP.

Coinbase still ignores XRP

Ripple (XRP) seems to be on a roll lately, even with all the talks about its true nature that have had many people doubting it lately. If you are an XRP holder, you will be happy to know that this crypto has just managed to ensure three more listings, in some pretty reputable exchanges.

Of course, none of them is Coinbase, which is Ripple’s ultimate goal. However, there is still time for that to happen, and the more exchanges this crypto conquers in the process, the larger the chance that Coinbase will finally start seeing it as worthy.

After all, new exchanges mean new trading pairs, more exposure, and a larger liquidity for the coin. Eventually, Ripple hopes to dominate the market, and getting on Coinbase is what this crypto has set as its ultimate goal.

Three exchanges go for Ripple

As mentioned, Ripple has managed to charm three new exchanges: DX.Exchange in the EU, Australian The Cryptocurrency Exchange, as well as India’s Unodax.

DX.Exchange has released its announcement that it would list XRP and considering that it is one of the few exchanges that were regulated by the EU, this brings quite a large level of legitimacy to Ripple. The exchange is still relatively new and is currently being tested. However, its official launching date is July 25, which is only two weeks away. As soon as the exchange goes live, so will Ripple trading pairs, which gives this crypto something important to expect in the near future.

Next, we have The Cryptocurrency Exchange. Despite the general name, this exchange is a big thing in Australia, and Ripple getting on its list will certainly improve this coin’s influence on the entire southern continent. This time, there is no waiting involved, and Ripple is already live on its list.

The third and final exchange that has decided to add Ripple, at least for now, is India-based Unodax. Not only did they add XRP to their list, but they even made it their base coin, together with Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). This will allow Ripple to be traded in up to 17 crypto-crypto trading pairs.

Of course, considering that this is India’s exchange, Ripple’s future operations will need to find a way to comply with RBI’s recently released regulations. The regulations are pretty strict, and the crypto industry in this country has suffered greatly from that fact. However, as long as Ripple is willing to be traded on a crypto-crypto basis, the coin should not have a lot of problems.

Even with these successes, Ripple’s price is still not expected to react in any big way. In order for an exchange listing to seriously influence Ripple, the coin would have to get into Coinbase, as mentioned earlier. Still, getting listed in three exchanges with solid reputations is certainly not going to damage Ripple in any way, so we still consider this to be a large win for the coin.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on 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 billionaire

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…

TokenRoll (TKR) Platform Will Take Online Casinos to the Next Level




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…
