There are all sorts of times where cryptocurrency investors and traders are “faked out” by a price rally and decide that it might be time for an entry – only to find out, to their dismay, that the cryptocurrency that they entered has ended up pulling back and consolidating.

Well, one thing is for sure – Ripple’s XRP is showing a real reversal here. In the past 24 hours (on top of huge price boosts in the last couple of days); it has boasted an absolute staggering 17.8% gain, which is incredible, considering the fact that the entire cryptocurrency market has been bearish for months.

It is extremely clear now that if you were to buy in the extremely oversold months of July or August, it would have been a wise decision. Unlike other cryptocurrency projects, Ripple has some concrete partnerships with real financial institutions, but this sustained price action indicates that market confidence has indeed returned to the project, as this price action is not continuing because of any one specific catalyst.

Even in the past week, the keyword researches for “XRP” and “Ripple” have increased. That isn’t surprising, considering there are executives on the team that have been teasing that a cryptocurrency-based product will be launched shortly, in as soon as several weeks.

That is excellent news, but it needs to be noted that XRP has been affected by the market adversely, so this confirmed reversal is great, but many long-term investors, though they might be breathing a little easier, are by no means relieved.

For some context, XRP dropped an astonishing 46 percent from June to July, a period during which bitcoin didn’t even fall by 10%, as it slid from $6700 to $6100.

Regardless, Ripple and its upcoming products clearly mean that institutional money will be entering the market, and it’s evident that investors and traders are pleased with the positive developments. It is obvious that this Ripple reversal is real, and time will tell just how far the price goes up.

Bitcoin is continuing to stabilize, as some believe that a solid bottom has been formed. Of course, time will tell whether this is true. Regardless, one thing is for sure – money is coming back into the market, and many expect the entire market to be mildly bullish throughout the rest of September.

The volume of the global cryptocurrency exchange market is $2 billion, more than usual, and it would appear that this means that investors and traders and placing more buy pressure on in the market.

It’s easy to see that Ripple is leading the pack, and that shouldn’t be too surprising, because of two things: it has been severely oversold for some time now, and it also has had some exciting announcements. In addition to all of this, the upcoming developments mean that this XRP price reversal might be sustained, and the only question now is where exactly Ripple’s XRP will encounter some resistance.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

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.
