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).

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

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
