Stellar (XLM) may take over the Ripple’s XRP place in the market dominance

Published

on

XLM Ripple XRP

Stellar (XLM) and Ripple (XRP) are compared very often because of the solutions they offer in the crypto world. In fact, both companies envision to conquer the financial world by offering the best solutions for cross-border transactions, specifically speaking regarding costs and speed.

Like this, the XRP/XLM dilemma has been a common topic in the crypto sector for a long period now, and as it seems, it may be concluded very soon as Ripple continues to struggle with both the lawsuits and the ‘security’ issues, and this may give the perfect spot for XLM to shine and show the world how ready is their platform.

XLM and XRP comparison

At the time of writing XRP trades at a price of $0.32832 according to Coinmarketcap, and the same way XLM trades at $0.21874. Both cryptocurrencies appear in the green with increases of 1.16% in the case of XRP, and 3.39% if you talk about XLM. However, it is XLM the one that has had the biggest increase considering the jump in the price that Bitcoin had last Monday, the same that shot the price of certain coins in the market, being XLM one of them.

In contrast to the mentioned above, it is notable that is not a matter of price anymore. In fact, Ripple has had the toughest times in the last couple of months by facing several lawsuits in which it is claimed that the XRP token should be treated as a security, and on the other hand, by having the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) chasing after them with great possibilities of declaring the cryptocurrency as a security, and not as a digital asset.

With relation to this, Ripple has made great efforts to dispel the rumors, but truth be told, it doesn’t seem to be working that good. It all started with the differentiation between the company and the token, so now we have two different terms which are Ripple Labs (the company), and XRP (the token).

That was later followed by a special rule that disables Ripple Labs to control what happens with the XRP token, so with that centralization was off the table. However, the assumptions persist; and that is precisely one of the things that have helped XLM to come out to light.

Coinbase considering XLM as their next crypto

We all know how Ripple has been fighting to get the right to appear listed in the acclaimed exchange Coinbase, but sadly this is something very unlikely to occur unless Ripple solves the lawsuits and the centralization problems quickly. In contrast to that, it was known that Coinbase is actually considering XLM as their next crypto accepted, and this may actually occur once Stellar releases its promising project, the blockchain 3.0.

As for the price, we can all speculate that XLM might hit the moon, but the most important thing is that the token will finally get the validation that it deserves. So the way to go XLM! Oh, and sorry XRP… Keep trying! But yeah, if Ripple somehow manages to tackle the discussed issues, Stellar (XLM) might not be able to come close to it (Ripple’s XRP is a cryptocurrency with massive potential if you put its problems aside).

META 1 Coin Trust Announces Commission to Study Global Persecution of Cryptocurrency Projects

Published

Boca Raton, Florida, 27th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

Collaborating with Other Cryptocurrencies, META 1 Tackles Injustice and Human Rights 

META 1 Coin Trust has announced plans to identify, research and document instances of governmental overreach in cryptocurrency cases globally, as part of its ongoing efforts to advance human rights and individual freedom. 

According to Robert P. Dunlap, Executive Trustee of META 1 Coin Trust, “The malicious attacks on crypto projects globally by overzealous government agencies must be documented and publicized to protect the individual liberties of META 1 Coin holders, as well as issuers and holders of other cryptocurrencies.” He added, “The decentralized, non-jurisdictional reality of crypto has left government agencies often unable to fully litigate cases and the general public should not have to continue suffering due to excessive overreach as agencies clamor to save face.”

META 1 Coin Trust is led by Robert P. Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler, who are both committed to pushing back against unimpeded global persecution of cryptocurrencies. By calling attention to years of organized efforts by government agencies to specifically target cryptocurrency projects, their hope is that the public will see and demand an end to these unjust violations of individual liberty. 

Specific grievances which motivated this initiative include grave concerns over government agencies’ obstruction of individuals’ livelihoods, defamation of character, and libelous false accusations which could tarnish the names of individuals for years to come, long after legal actions…

GDA Capital in Conversation About the Future of Digital Assets at Global Family Office Summit

Published

on

GDA Capital organized the quarterly Global Family Office Summit this week. The event was held virtually with a number of technology leaders and high net worth investors who discussed issues such as education, trust and responsibility to give back. Among these were insightful conversations with Dubai-based Dalma Capital’s CEO Zachari Cefaratti, Holt Fintech Accelerator founder Brendan Hold Dunn, Global Data Sentinel CEO and White City Ventures Chairman of the Board Shahal Khan, and Elitium CEO Raoul Milhado, among others. Participants were also given access to off-market opportunities to invest in novel technologies.

Will Bartlett, GDA Capital’s Director of Research, headlined the event by focusing on tech in the modern economy, and identifying six sectors where new technologies can make a lasting impact: robotics, space, biotech, machine learning, quantum computing, and blockchain. In the context of blockchain, he discussed how digital assets are a hedge against traditional financial markets. “Cryptocurrencies have no exposure to stock market returns, macroeconomic factors, or returns of currencies and commodities,” Bartlett said.

More so, Bartlett believes that new models for digital assets such as DigitalBits’ branded stablecoins are key to the development of the field. These currencies replace traditional rewards and loyalty point systems that are commonly used by household brands by porting them to the blockchain. Meanwhile, they rely on brand…

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…
