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.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
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.

CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.

In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

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…
