Ripple (XRP) and Stellar (XLM) are top cryptos in the entirely. Even with the fierce rivalry that occurs in the cryptosphere with many altcoins expanding, it is necessary to know that Stellar (XLM) and Ripple (XRP) have magnificent structures that separate them from competition and help them succeed on their own.

However, both Stellar (XLM) and Ripple (XRP) are not in competition with each other; instead, each of them has its very own ways to win in the cryptosphere. The main point is, both of them can thrive together.

The market position and price of Stellar (XLM) and Ripple (XRP)

XLM and XRP aren’t highly priced, and this makes them the best option for mass adoption. However, with the great expansion of altcoins in the crypto market today, lots of investors are only interested in the value and gains that each cryptos present.

However, it is necessary to know that the increasing rate of altcoins in the cryptosphere is since Bitcoin (BTC) has lots of shortcomings and new altcoins are looking for ways to correct these failings, and XLM and XRP are top-picks that give solutions to real-life problems.

Furthermore, XLM and XRP are coins that aim to adopt a large number of investors; as it stands, both of them do not have any form of competition or whatsoever regarding services rendered and the number of investors being targeted. On the other hand, investors know what they want, and they are sensitive to the worth of each crypto not just on their current price, but on a long-term perspective.

Both cryptos have appealing entry points for different types of users. At the time of writing, XLM is priced at $0.18809 with a market capitalization of $3.5 Billion. XRP, on the other hand, is currently priced $0.44797 with a market capitalization of $17.5 billion – clearly, Ripple (XRP) has a more significant market capitalization than Stellar’s XLM in the crypto market.

Even though there is a big difference in the market capitalization of these two, there isn’t any form of competition. Ripple (XRP) is being adopted by banks to solve real-life problems, and there are more than 100 banking entities that have embraced the cryptocurrency presently. This feat is making Ripple (XRP) a futuristic cryptocurrency.

Stellar (XLM) has not achieved much when it comes to partnerships (IBM seems to be its biggest lead so far). Although, the kind of collaborations that Stellar (XLM) does is different from Ripple (XRP).

Both coins have different goals that set them apart

Stellar (XLM) and Ripple (XRP) are not in competition because of the fact that both of them have different goals, and they operate differently. Stellar’s developers aim to help startups, while the team behind Ripple objective to partner with banks.

These two goals are quite different; it distinguishes them and state what each has to offer. Additionally, we are safe to say that both Stellar (XLM) and Ripple (XRP) co-exist together and thus, there is no rivalry. Investors have the final say on which has the potential of booming in the future.

Both are cheap right now, Ripple (XRP) went down by 7.9% in the last seven days and Stellar (XLM) got declined by 9.35%, so from an investment point of view, it’s the best time to purchase both at low price in bulk considering that both have tremendous potential to grow and perhaps none of two might be this cheap again.

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.

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.
