There’s Never Been A Better Time To Be A Ripple (XRP) Holder

This could be a big week for Ripple (XRP). The third-place cryptocurrency, which currently sits at the price of $0.78 giving it a market cap of $30.46 billion. This, of course, is still far below the close to $4 a piece that XRP reached at the start of last month but the $30 billion cap break is a strong threshold to break and it’s one that’s going to (with any luck, for XRP holders) draw a substantial amount of speculative volume towards the XRP market.

That aside, however, why is this going to be a big week?

Well, a couple of fundamental elements (one more impactful than the other) have hit press and each has the potential to shore up what we see as an already solid fundamental case for a Ripple speculative position right now.

Here’s what we are looking at.

The major event took place over the last couple of days and was put on by internet giant Yahoo in the form of the Yahoo All Markets Summit (AMS). For anybody not familiar with the Yahoo AMS, it’s a major annual event held by the company designed to, as its name suggests, put the spotlight on some of the potentially game changing entities currently active in major markets globally.

Of course, this time around, the blockchain and cryptocurrency space had a substantial presence at the event but no other coin was as well represented as was XRP. Brad Garlinghouse, the company’s CEO and one of the most well-known cryptocurrency billionaires (primarily derived from his XRP holdings), was a keynote speaker for the cryptocurrency side of the event and – as might be expected – he spent pretty much the whole time talking about how Ripple has the potential to change the world.

The impact of this sort of event on global speculative participation in a currency like XRP cannot be understated.

This is a roomful of tech entrepreneurs and enthusiasts, many of whom will likely already be exposed to the cryptocurrency space but, at the same time, many of whom will be looking for a way to pick up some sort of exposure near-term.

At the Yahoo AMS, Garlinghouse essentially stood in front of this crowd and told them why Ripple should be their exposure of choice.

And that’s not all. A company called Crypto Emporium just added XRP as a payment method for its customers, with the addition representing the fourth such cryptocurrency behind bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin to be accepted by the entity.

Sure, this isn’t a major demand boost given the size of Crypto Emporium (for anybody not familiar with the company, it’s a seller of luxury goods that only accepts cryptocurrency) but it does serve to offer up a degree of insight into the community and support that this coin has surrounding it – the addition of Ripple was the result of a vote by supporters, with XRP beating out on Verge and others to take the listing.

So what are the key levels to keep an eye on from here on out?

First up, we are watching one dollar as a near-term threshold. A break above this level would validate previous highs (at $3.80) as an immediate upside target. Beyond that, we are looking at $10 has a solid mid-2018 valuation.

Put simply, especially at current prices, there has never been a better time to hold XRP.

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Bitcoin is soaring high in the cryptomarket once again, and experts are expecting a return of the bullish trend of 2017. The current Bitcoin price is $7,615 as of 23 May 6:56 AM UTC. This significant jump comes just six months after the Bitcoin price plummeted to a low of $3150 in December 2018. Since then, Bitcoin has experienced steady growth and gain in the market. However, in the last 30 days, the Bitcoin price peaked to $8,320.82, its highest price ever. This phenomenal jump occurred in a span of only 10 days breaking the Bitcoin record so far of significant gains made in short time frames. This positive growth has led to experts forecasting the Bitcoin price to hit the $20,000 mark by the end of this year.

Since entering the market almost 11 years ago, Bitcoin is still at the top of the global cryptocurrencies list. The current circulating supply of Bitcoin is at unbelievable 17,708,875 BTC. The market trend of the Bitcoin price has remained positive even when the currency did not maintain an uptrend. Cryptocurrency researchers believe that Bitcoin has the potential to grow up to a high of USD 50,000 within the next two years.

The crypto market is going through a period of massive recovery in the past few months, which has caused the investors’ optimism to return. While all eyes are on Bitcoin (BTC), as usual, the largest coin seems to be struggling with a major resistance level at $8,000 at the moment. While this level was breached a few times now, every breach resulted in a correction.

At the time of writing, BTC is approaching this level yet again, with its current price being at $7,985,79, and rising further. The price managed to grow by 1.06% in the last 24 hours, and will undoubtedly hit $8,000 in a matter of hours, if not sooner.

However, while Bitcoin continues to remain volatile and struggles with waves of growth and decline, there are some altcoins that are not following its path. Of course, most of them are performing in pretty much the same manner as BTC, as they always had. But, a few coins have actually managed to outperform Bitcoin in recent months.

While optimists believe that this might lead to decoupling from Bitcoin — something that only Binance Coin (BNB) managed to pull off up to this point — it is likely that there will be consequences for these cryptos. This likely means that a price drop for these specific coins awaits somewhere in the near future, as outperforming BTC…
