Ripple’s platforms have been tested many times so far. The crypto comes on top of every test almost every time. Their solutions (xCurrent, xRapid and xVia) are robust, functional and reliable. It’s no surprise why Ripple and their coin (XRP) are being adopted by more banks and financial institutions all the time.

Ripple’s technology will be put to the test again as Bank of Ayudhya (Krungsri), Standard Chartered and Mitsubishi Corporation just announced a test project in Singapore and Thailand.

Ripple Net’s volume has been growing exponentially, and these new partnerships will be a significant milestone for Ripple. The main point in this pilot program is to show how quick and reliable Ripple is when it comes to international payments.

Both Mitsubishi Corporation and Standard Chartered are among the world’s powerhouses. Their liquidity is absolutely without question. If they can turn to Ripple after the pilot works well, that could change Ripple’s history for good.

Ripple’s new business model

It’s called Coil. Not the one you know but a new business model that will find out a way for web owners who are trying to pay their top contributors to deliver. Stefan Thomas, Ripple’s CTO is the man behind this plan, and he’s ready to step down to make it happen.

Also, Ripple’s Chris Larsen and Evans Schwartz have joined the Coil team. It will use Ripple’s interledger protocols in order to offer better rewards for every user and produce better incentives for apps and digital content. The company is based in San Francisco, at Silicon Valley’s heart.

While there is no release date for Coil just yet, it’s fully backed up by Ripple regarding resources and money. It will appear on the web rather sooner than later.

Ripple matches Tron

Zebpay is India’s most important crytpocoins exchange platform. It recently started to allow crypto to crypto trading, and they chose Tron and Ripple to be the first couple of digital currencies to be mutually traded.

Zebpay announced the event through their twitter official account, and positive remarks hailed it. The XRP/TRX is the first coin coupling in the platform, but more are expected to come about in the following days.

The Ripple (XRP) blockchain gets to the top

Ripple organized the VIP blockchain week in New York City. It will bring together enthusiasts, educators, developers, and exchanges. It will be a big event. Snoop Dogg, the American rapper, performed for the attendants at the XRP Community Night which took place a couple of nights ago, May 15th.

Ripple’s price and performance

Ripple’s XRP was trading as low as $0.63 last May 12th which was a big blow for it. But the crypto-coin has been along with other currencies that are leading the pack back into a comeback and recovering green numbers.

XRP’s prices have risen significantly over the last three days. As we write this, it’s at $0.69 per token. Ripple is still the world’s third largest digital coin by market cap at 29.131 billion dollars.

It has been almost an entire week since Justin Sun, the founder of TRON (TRX), announced a new big partnership for this cryptocurrency. His Twitter announcement did not provide a lot of information, except for the fact that the TRON partnership is with an industry giant worth tens of billions of dollars.

Even so, the entire crypto community started speculating about the new partner’s identity. Soon after the announcement, a new rumor emerged, claiming that the identity of an unnamed corporation was uncovered. According to the rumor, TRON’s new partner is none other than Baidu, one of the largest tech giants of China, which also represents this country’s largest internet search provider.

Baidu is often viewed as China’s version of Google, and if the rumors of a partnership with this company turn out to be true, this will be a big game-changer for TRON.

However, in days following the announcement, new reports started coming in with claims that the partnership will not revolve around blockchain technology. Instead, ODaily reported that the alleged partnership between TRON and Baidu will be focused on cloud computing. The report claims that TRON will be purchasing computing resources from Baidu.

Currently, China is leading in Bitcoin mining industry by far, second to none for bitcoin mining power. Literally, it’s contributing over 70% of the network’s hash rate (a term that is used in describing the total processing power of a blockchain network). But how Ripple fits in here and what it has to do with that? We’ll talk about that a bit later below, let’s cover some in-depth facts about China’s dominance over Bitcoin first.

It’s a near-complete dominance by China on the BTC mining grid that has made it responsible for mining a majority of circulating bitcoins. A Beijing-based company, Bitmain Technologies, is highly responsible for extracting the significant part – more than half of the globe’s bitcoin, and alone, it has approached 50% of the total hash rate more than once.

The fact that China is controlling a majority of Bitcoin hash rate, clearly tells that it has the power of manipulating or merely destroy the bitcoin network if it gets enough support should it decide to take such a move. Therefore, this has led to serious concerns among countries including the US that China might get an edge in this cryptocurrency industry and possibly becoming a potential threat.

China is the biggest manufacturer of Bitcoin as well as cryptocurrency mining equipment. The reason behind the massive growth of mining farms in the country is because of cheap electricity bills.

Furthermore, the country has adopted several…

While most cryptocurrencies today still remain unstable and at the edge of falling into the red, there are some coins that are doing significantly better. One such coin is Ravencoin (RVN), which has surged by over 26% in the last 24 hours.

About Ravencoin

Ravencoin came to be as a hard fork of Bitcoin and was inspired by a popular book series-turned-television programme, Game of Thrones. The coin’s developers decided to make Ravencoin an open-source project that provides users with the ability to declare assets on their platform. The platform itself is decentralized, transparent, and secure.

Just as Game of Thrones’ ravens are used for spreading the news and truth, Ravencoin hopes to become a carrier of truth regarding the ownership of assets on the blockchain.

Ravencoin’s main use case is for performing P2P transfers, while it prioritizes security, autonomy, user privacy, and control. Additionally, as a coin fighting for truth and transparency, it also stands against censorship.

Ravencoin got listed on Binance prior to MainNet launch

Following the last week’s announcement that Ravencoin is getting officially listed on Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange ba trading volume, Ravencoin experienced a large price surge. At one point, the surge took the coin’s value up by over 31%. At the time of writing, however, the coin is still growing, with an increase of 26.15% in the last 24 hours.

Getting listed on Binance has brought Ravencoin to the top…
