As crypto enthusiasts, one of the most common things for us to desire is to see the global adoption of one of our favorite coins. However, despite the remarkable eagerness around the topic, this, in fact, has become a very distant resolution, which at the end, leads us to rethink whether or not this would be a reality.

Much has been said regarding specific coins will get or not the ‘global’ status, but the truth is in most of the cases it is just a matter of speculation, and this only concludes with us having the feeling that maybe the goal is just unreachable.

In this sense, one of the coins that continually has been resonating in the cryptosphere as the most likely token to be massively adopted is Ripple (XRP), and we have strong reasons to believe this is actually the right perception. Let’s see the reasoning behind it.

Ripple alliances around the world

One of the most distinguished features of Ripple (XRP) has always been the hype the token has managed to create with the endorsement received by many alliances they have, a fact that every day seems to get greater. This time, the company has decided to take it a little further, and that’s definitely one of the things that may help the token to receive the global status that for so long has been pursued.

Like this, Ripple Labs has associated with nothing less than the Bill Gates Foundation in a partnership that seeks to improve payment transactions through the use of their product xRapid. And it’s worth to mention that out of the three products that Ripple Labs have created, this is the only one that carries their digital asset, XRP, so the token definitely is on an auspicious path right now.

Regarding the project, it was known that Bill Gates is determined to solve one of the most laborious and most extended issues in the world as it is extreme poverty; and this is something he plans to do with the use of XRP as a solution.  This way, Mojaloop.io will be the platform that will be used to improve payment systems and make transactions in a faster and easier way.

We can all agree with the fact that this was a very unforeseen alliance, but the truth is Bill Gates is a crypto supporter and investor himself (was not earlier, he does not seem to be a fan of Bitcoin even now though). In fact, the project has been in the oven for a couple of months now, a fact that proves the interest of the businessman in the crypto environment.

This is definitely a massive step towards mass adoption for Ripple, but as I said before the company is more than used to create very solid relationships with the industry. And as if it wasn’t good enough, by partnering with Gates, Ripple has started a collaboration that may help to make the adoption of the token a reality in all of the developed countries around the world.

The partnership was designed with the intention of creating a task force for the Federal Reserve to improve cross-border payments and the usage of SWIFT as the medium to transact internationally. Like this, the director of Ripple Labs, Ryan Zagone, will represent almost 100 corporations of the task force to deploy the solution that the world seeks.

Furthermore, he will also represent Ripple Labs at the Better Than Cash alliance set by the United Nations, a collaboration that includes the World Bank, Melinda and Bill Gates Foundation, and the support of the G20, so as we see it, massive adoption is at the back of the corner.

As a matter of fact, the Federal Reserve conceives XRP as the solution that can replace SWIFT in the coming years, so the 2020 prediction of a globally adopted XRP, may not be that crazy after all.

Conclusion

Global adoption is becoming a reality for Ripple (XRP) as each day passes, and this is something that the token sees happening with more than 100 partnerships around the world with renowned companies such as the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve, JP Morgan, Santander, and others.

That, in addition to the newest alliances with Bill Gates and the United Nations, could lead to the adoption in all of the developed nations. So stay tuned (and strong).

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 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…
