Ripple (XRP) To Soon Be Available In The Philippines Through This Platform




The Ripple website’s buyer’s guide lists all the exchanges that a trader can buy XRP. The list includes the popular exchanges of Bitstamp, Kraken, Coinone, Bitso, Coincheck, Korbit, Qryptos, Bitbank, Bitsane, BTC Markets, LiteBit, Bitcoin Co. Ltd, Gatehub,,, BitOasis and SBI Virtual Currencies.

Many Ripplers already know that the SBI Virtual Currencies exchange went live only a few days ago. In the announcement, the SBI Group wants XRP to be the centerpiece for the trading platform. The exchange went ahead and listed XRP as the only digital asset that will be available at first.

The exchange has since added Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to the website’s buyers guide on cryptocurrencies. Further investigations yield that the exchange will allow pre-registered users to start trading in the new cryptocurrencies as early as Monday 18th of June. All three cryptocurrencies of XRP, BTC, and BCH will be paired against the Japanese Yen.

Revisiting the Ripple buyers guide once again, yields an exchange or platform that has been listed as ‘coming soon’.

This new platform that XRP will be listed on, is known as Satoshi Citadel Industries (SCI). A quick google search indicates that the platform is based in the Philippines. SCI deals with payment processing as well as international remittances. The latter is a field XRP has specialized in, making the listing on SCI even more exciting.

SCI also deals with mobile money payments and currently has an app known as Rebit that works on the Bitcoin network. Rebit allows users to transfer funds globally as well as other payments such as payroll, payment of monthly bills and loading mobile phones with prepaid talk time. Perhaps SCI and Ripple will come up with an xCurrent powered app similar to the one showcased by Santander only a few weeks ago.

Back in May last year, SCI had declared their intentions of listing XRP on their platform. In the announcement, they said that:

“SCI will soon start supporting Ripple’s XRP across several of our services. Starting with, our users will be able to buy and sell XRP with Philippine Pesos fast, safe, and easy, with support on for remittances and for mobile money to follow in future integrations.”

As soon as SCI integrates XRP, then the liquidity of the coin would have expanded to another global powerhouse in mobile App remittances. The sky is the limit for Ripple in the remittance industry.

Chainwire Launches Blockchain-Focused Automated Press Release Distribution Service



TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors




When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
