There have been several surges and dips in the market history of Ripple (XRP), but that is expected of any cryptocurrency in the crypto market. One interesting thing to note is that even though these spikes and dips exist, they seem to be organized. Looking at XRP market chart, there is a progressive form.

Is History Repeating Itself with Ripple (XRP)?

If you are to take a look at the Ripple (XRP) market chart, you will notice that the cryptocurrency is making the same route as it did in April this year, 2018. Remember, the coin went as high as $0.9327 in April.

Ripple’s daily chart shows that XRP is building a technical pattern resembling its April 2018 performance. Although, XRP still needs to break above 200-EMA for this to be confirmed. We are still over-extended on the RSI, so it still needs to reset.

Mid May this year, XRP went low and tested the Low Moving Average; it reset the RSI and broke through it, and then, we saw a surge in its price in April. The same XRP/BTC patterned is very much alike with the one experienced in April.

Ripple began an incredible pump that started on 18th of this month and kept going until hitting a significant high at 78 cents. Since then, its price has had a rough upside trend, which then made the coin price to experience a down move again.

Also, XRP price then tanked as it lost almost 50 percent of its up move within a couple of days. Since then, the price now seems to have found support on the 50 moving average. XRP will follow this trend a little longer, then cool down and garner support and follow the same direction as it did in April this year.

As said earlier, Ripple’s surges and dips do occur in a controlled pattern, and as we already know, XRP does these parabolic movements twice a year. However, it is safe to say that probably now is the best time to buy Ripple.

Ripple’s xRapid is Going Live Next Month

Ripple has unveiled an innovative payment means, and it is expected to go live next month. It is expected that this payment means, xRapid, will help money transactions of financial businesses.

Moreover, lots of crypto enthusiasts believe that Ripple’s recent surge was due to the announcement that xRapid will go live next month. It is anticipated that when this product goes live next month, the price of XRP will surge.

I am very confident that in the next one month or so you will see some good news coming in where we launch the product live in production,” Sarbhai, Ripple’s Head of regulatory relations for Asia-Pacific and the Middle East told CNBC during an interview.

xRapid is expected to assist XRP in global transactions. It is also projected that xRapid will help in the increase of XRP value, as well as intensify Ripple’s mass adoption. It is also important to know that Coil – a technology startup company which is poised to assist content creators via Web Monetization has adopted Ripple as a means of payment. That could be a game changer as well.

At the moment, Ripple’s XRP stands at $0.544 per token, with a market capitalization of $21.7 Billion. Platforms integrated on Coil’s network include Twitch, YouTube, and Wikipedia, which means that people who use these platform can donate XRP tokens to the content providers. XRP as a source of payment on Coil’s platform might also help the price of XRP to surge.

With the launch of xRapid, will there be a Ripple’s XRP price surge making history repeat itself? Well, let’s hope and see.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
