Stellar News: XLM To Dominate Cross-Border Payments

Cryptocurrency experts from all corners of the world agree that right now is the best time to buy Stellar (XLM). While the latest market behavior was far from perfect, and prices of many coins have dropped, cryptos like Stellar are extremely undervalued at this point.

At the time of writing, top cryptos are trading in the green, which might mean that the situation is getting better. Stellar’s current price is at $0.226430, with 2% increase in the last 24 hours. Despite the fact that this is far from a real bull run, analysts agree that the real price surge is bound to arrive sooner or later.

Recent Stellar news claims that this XLM price does not match its fundamentals, which places Stellar in a perfect position for growth. This is due to its nature, as well as the ultimate purpose for which the coin was designed.

What makes Stellar special?

Just like Ripple (XRP), Stellar also aims to revolutionize cross-border payments, and make them faster, cheaper, more efficient, and possible at any time of day or night. The largest difference between the two is that Ripple is focusing on providing its services to banks and other financial institutions, while Stellar aims to deliver the same to individuals.

In addition, Stellar has partnered up with IBM a while back, and IBM offers its own services to around 97% of the global banking system. In short, by partnering with IBM, Stellar also has a unique opportunity to get access to other IBM’s partners as well. Not only that, but IBM’s international payments solution allows these banks to settle any payment in fiat currencies, and not only Stellar.

This is a very big deal for banks since most of them are not ready to start working with cryptocurrencies, either due to laws in different countries or because of their own policies. Because of that, banks are more likely to go for those solutions that do not force them to deal with cryptocurrencies.

Recent Stellar news also claims that Interstellar is making game-changing moves, that are expected to make this coin’s blockchain even more interesting and attractive to banks and financial institutions. Some reports mention payment channels that plan to introduce new features, such as interoperability, privacy, and scalability. Privacy has always been an important issue when it comes to finances, which is another very important advantage for Stellar.

Scalability and interoperability are also very important. In the finance industry, thousands upon thousands of transactions are made every second, and Stellar’s system is making big steps to always be able to instantly satisfy the industry’s needs.

All of this points out to a massive use case for Stellar, which likely means that this is a coin that will never go away. As such, it can only grow as time progresses. For this reason, investors believe that buying the coin while it is cheap might bring them significant gains in the future.

The finance industry is a market with a worth of trillions of dollars. The coin that dominates this market will be the largest one in the world, and XLM stands more than a good chance to be that coin.

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.

From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.

What is Libra?

Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.

Note: Libra Association was established by Facebook to look after the cryptocurrency and the transactions, and it was founded in Geneva, Switzerland.

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…
