Regardless of the good reviews XRP is getting from every crypto coin enthusiast, it is still hard to pinpoint the real factor behind the Ripple’s bullish movement in recent weeks. However, there are a couple of big factors that indicate when looked into closely that they might have a hand in contributing towards Ripple’s increase in market share.
The Apple-Ripple Partnership Factor
Although cryptocurrency is in the space of peak uncertainty, Apple is known for integrating current technologies into the mainstream and making them easy to use by offering straightforward User interface.
Apple’s decision to incorporate and partner with Ripple’s inter-ledger payment system does not correlate directly to XRP currency but sure does bring anticipation for a possible XRP integration in future. With this, the prices of Ripple will grow by leaps and bounds, and increase beyond the $1 anticipated mark, probably to $10.
Ripple-Santander OnePay FX money transfer
Although regarding this incredible partnership, critics are refuting the claims that this partnership and others were made with Ripple XRP currency in mind. Rather, the argument is that such companies as Santander only made agreements with Ripple’s payment solutions — and not the Digital coin itself. Regardless of the claims, the partnership is making the currency more attractive, stable, and accepted compared to its competitors.
Ripple’s commitment to Innovation
The Digital money is investing $25 Million in its crypto token (XRP) to innovations and brilliant ideas that will focus on developing the blockchain space.
The $25 million adds to the over $100 million fund managed by Blockchain Capital that will invest and distribute the digital money to entrepreneurial teams that are into blockchain technology and building their businesses around it. The fund will also provide an opportunity and avenue for developers to work and access the technology in real time, and build on it using the open source platforms, the XRP Ledger provide.
As Ripple continues to support the expansion and development of the blockchain ecosystem, it will only make the cryptocurrency to become more stable, accepted, and competitive in today’s world. And with all these incredible partnerships, adoption and other good things happening around this altcoin, it soon will be safe to say that the coin might hit $10 mark — not just the $1.
