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.
So glad I bought more #xrp feeling on top of the ????…………..

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.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

“NFTs are extremely flexible in their usage, from digital event tickets to artwork, and while NFTs have a very wide spectrum of uses and categories XENO will initially focus its partnership efforts and its own item curation on three primary areas: gaming, sports & entertainment, and collectibles.”, said XENO NFT Hub president Anthony Di Franco.
He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
Mr. Yamagata has been…
