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

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).

The crypto winter ended and Bitcoin is breaking through the $5000 resistance barrier and leading a general charge in bullishness among cryptocurrencies has seen more positivity in the market than ever before. However, before any talk of a crypto spring should start, we need to look at what happened during the winter.

Many different platforms were either fully released or improved upon significantly. There has been a surge of innovation and the crystallization of ideas. The market isn’t just about crypto trading or bitcoin trading; it has become more about what businesses will leverage blockchain in the best way. Investors need to look at what a coin offers beyond just being a cryptocurrency. What partners does it have, what is the long term plan and is it liquid enough?

Investing in altcoins has never been a better option than right now. The volatility index shows that the market is growing without having to rely on Bitcoin. While Bitcoin still determines and up or down trend, the altcoins do not follow this trend exactly. More and more tokens and coins are surviving and thriving on their own merits rather than riding in Bitcoin’s wake.

The four coins to follow are our pick for the top 4 cryptocurrencies most likely to give you substantial returns by the end of 2019.

2019 Will Be a Big Year for Luxcore

With the recent surge of Bitcoin in the last few weeks, many traders are hoping for a more profitable year than 2018.  Even if that comes to fruition, my advice over the past year remains the same.  Traders must look for companies and projects that offer blockchain solutions with real-world use and complete transparency.  One company that meets both of those requirements is Luxcore (LUX).

What is Luxcore?

Luxcore is a blockchain solutions and services ecosystem that focuses on developing security and privacy products.  The Luxcore platform utilizes the PHI2 algorithm powered blockchain to build a wide variety of product offerings.  One of the platform’s primary goals is to help close the gap between regular consumers and enterprise users by introducing specific use-cases for each group of users.

Exciting Roadmap for 2019

As mentioned earlier, one of the absolute requirements of building a successful blockchain project is to be fully and completely transparent.  Luxcore certainly meets that requirement with the introduction of their most recent roadmap.

The roadmap does a great job of showing which projects are in development, how far along each project is, and the expected completion date of each project.  With this, LUX traders and potentially interested consumers can follow along and monitor the status of projects that they are especially interested in.

Since many crypto projects have inevitably disappointed the market, offering…

Can XRP Break Out of the Falling Wedge?

XRP is the third largest cryptocurrency by market cap, which currently sits at around $13.5 billion. The coin also has a price of $0.325316 at the time of writing, after seeing a significant price correction of 4% in the last 24 hours.

Just like many other cryptocurrencies, XRP has seen massive losses during the 2018 bear market. However, this falling wedge seems to have seen a real breakout in 2019, as the crypto winter started to let go, and a lot of coins saw significant price recoveries.

XRP’s falling wedge was much more difficult to stop, which can be seen on its long-term chart. But, the recent bull runs allowed numerous cryptocurrencies to finally see growth, and XRP is definitely one of them. The charts also show that the coin’s falling wedge has seen a breakout, which is an excellent thing for the future of XRP’s price.

However, for the coin’s price to truly turn and stay bullish, XRP needs to see larger volumes. The experts believe that this is the key for a new rally, one which would allow XRP to reach true recovery.

XRP price performance and predictions

As mentioned, XRP had struggled to start growing even when most other cryptocurrencies were drawn in a number of bull runs. While the coin has been acting the same as others until mid-February, it is clear that the…
