Ripple (XRP) is one of the leading top five cryptocurrencies in the market with impressive market capitalizations. For a while now, Ripple’s prices have been trading below even half-dollar mark which is far from its all-time high valuation of 3 US dollars for one single XRP digital coin.

In the recent past, the markets have witnessed the growth of Ripple to become one of the top blockchain technologies in the market to be massively adopted. Thanks to Ripple’s appeal towards many industry players, many companies and firms are showing readiness to incorporate and partner with Ripple (XRP) with some exciting deals closing already.

Many financial companies and institutions around the globe have adopted Ripple’s xCurrent technology for their operations due to the main reason for its operational ability and effectiveness in simplifying operations.

The recent release of the Codius smart contract platform by Stefan Thomas took a lot of crypto enthusiast by surprise, exciting many of Ripple community members. Stefan Thomas, Ripple’s former CTO, now runs Coil.

The release of the Codius smart contract signals the extension of the Ripple family with its main goal is to introduce the interoperability of various blockchain technologies with one another devising new ways to earn money from the internet. Hence the good reason why I believe Ripple might still stand a chance to ‘at least’ hit the $7 mark before this year ends.

The Impact of JP Morgan Ripple Partnership

JP Morgan is considered as one of the largest investment banks in the world. The collaboration between Ripple and JP Morgan might have significant effects on the price value of XRP, as some of Ripple’s products such as the xRapid continues to gain popularity with major banks.

On a recent communication by JP Morgan’s, the investment bank is working tirelessly to come up with a real-time payment platform that will incorporate Ripple benefits to their customers and clients. The announcement comes at a very good time igniting hope for Ripple and XRP investors. However, the controversial issue is whether JP Morgan will be partnering with Ripple Inc. or XRP considering their different management nature.

Does Ripple Stand a Chance to Reach $7?

For XRP holders and investors who are interested in the future value of the digital token, learning about its prospects is valuable considering the numerous rumors going around.

First of all, it is prudent to know that Ripple has three different platforms. Ripple as a platform is designed to aid in money transfer quickly and economically. Of the three platforms under Ripple, it is only one platform, xRapid, that requires the XRP coin to work.

Normally, Ripple emphases on promoting the other two platforms, xVia, and xCurrent, that do not require the indulgence of XRP. Xcurrent is extremely useful in financial institutions and banks while xRapid is used for allowing near-instant money transfer irrespective of the amount, globally.

By adopting xCurrent, Santander, one of the largest banks in Spain, is going to allow its clients to transfer money fast and in a secure way without using XRP. This incorporation along with other comparable partnerships is what is rumored to push the price levels of Ripple (XRP) to high levels of at least $7 this year.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

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.
