Today, before I start talking about Ripple (XRP), I need to set the ground. So, please excuse me for not talking about the coin straight away and keep reading, as setting the base is essential here. So, in the financial world, two of the most important terms to comprehend are without a doubt, inflation and deflation, concepts that play a vital role in the way specific currency acts and reflects on the users.

To understand both, Investopedia defines inflation as a process that occurs “when the price of goods and services rise, while deflation occurs when those prices decrease.” But what does this concept represent regarding benefits or detriment for those who keep the currency at issue? Well, it appears both inflation and deflation have an incredible repercussion in this matter.

For starters, one needs to keep into account that inflation is a process that even when it may spontaneously appear on an economy, most of the times it is also created, or at least, stimulated by certain governments with the intention of obtaining a more significant benefit. I know, right? It does come across as a tough thing to assimilate, but the truth is that on an inflationary process people tend to sell and buy more goods and services, and this is actually not rocket science, in fact, due to money tends to lose its value, people refuse to hoard it and decide to use it instead.

With this said, the main benefit people can obtain from an inflationary process created by the government is the warranty that money will not be accumulated and kept by just a few, which in case of happening would create a concentration of power that only can be interpreted as a pyramid scheme, one of the labels with which the crypto environment is related the most with.

In this sense, it results clear that in order for certain coins to perform in a way where wealthiness is equitable, it is necessary for the governance of such coins to perform a pseudo inflation that guarantees the distribution of their money in an appropriate form, and that is precisely one of the actions that we don’t get to see in the cryptosphere.

Ever since Bitcoin (BTC) appeared in the financial landscape, the distribution of their money has been unequal and dissimilar, meaning only a few manage to have incredible amounts of their cryptos and accumulate wealth.

Like this, the previously mentioned pyramid scheme results inevitable, and the only possible option for the coin is to start a decreasing path (if not already started) that will conclude with the stagnation of the token.

Contrary to this, the coin that seems to have all of this calculated is none other than Ripple (XRP). The third largest cryptocurrency of the market despite being strongly criticized for locking up more than the half of their total supply, it has been building up the foundations of an economic policy that benefits its users in the future.

So, be sure that all of the moves that Ripple (XRP) has deployed have been more than calculated, including the predilection of the token to relate with bank entities that, to say the least, looks a lot like what governments do when they artificially inflate their coins and put their fresh-created money out there in the banks.

In fact, the ability of the token to determine somehow the rate distribution of XRP is a way of the coin to emulate the inflation that governments construct whenever in need, a fact that avoid the hoarding of money and the wrong accumulation of power.

XRP is a coin that sooner or later will become the one to follow in the sector, so instead of pointing out the ‘centralization’ of the crypto, what we all should be doing is supporting the works that the token realizes for us to obtain a benefit in the long-run.

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
