Here Is How the Listing of Stellar (XLM) on Coinbase Will Pave The Way for an XRP Listing

Published

on

XRP

Popular cryptocurrency exchange of Coinbase announced that it is currently looking into listing the following 5 digital assets on its platform: Cardano (ADA), Stellar (XLM), Ox (ZRX), Basic Attention Token (BAT) and ZCash (ZEC). The announcement was made via Twitter, as well as on the Coinbase blog, and it stated that:

“We are making this announcement [of the 5 cryptocurrencies] internally at Coinbase and to the public at the same time to remain transparent with our customers about support for future assets.”

The team at Coinbase also expressed their concerns about listing the new assets:

“We are making this announcement internally at Coinbase and to the public at the same time to remain transparent with our customers about support for future assets.”

So how will the listing of Stellar pave the way for XRP onto Coinbase?

Looking at the second statement by the team at Coinbase, their willingness to list digital assets outside their comfort zones of Bitcoin and Ethereum based protocols means that they probably have a new team of developers at the exchange. These developers are probably hard at work trying to integrate the blockchain platforms of these 5 digital assets to those of the Coinbase exchange. This could, in turn, mean that listing XRP in the future on Coinbase will be as easy as using a warm knife on butter; since they will have the experience of adding new assets on the platform.

The second reason why the listing of XLM will pave the way for XRP being listed on Coinbase is the background both coins have with having one Co-Founder, Jed McCaleb. Knowing how the professional networks work in technology, someone somewhere will pitch the idea of listing XRP once XLM is added on Coinbase. Another question to ask is if the code behind the two digital assets is similar given McCaleb co-created both. If this is the case, adding XRP on Coinbase will be as easy as charging a mobile phone: plug and play.

A third reason is that the guys at Ripple will probably note that XLM is being listed on Coinbase for the Stellar platform is more decentralized than that of XRP. The team at Ripple will, therefore, accelerate decentralization on the ledger by adding additional validators on the network. We all know the effect of competition and seeing what your neighbor has achieved. In the case of Ripple, they will feel motivated to get XRP listed once XLM succeeds in doing so at Coinbase.

Chainwire Launches Blockchain-Focused Automated Press Release Distribution Service

Published

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

Aluna.Social

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.

Mission Statement
