The crypto market has been taking a turn lately, with a lot of coins seeing more gains than ever in the last three months. Some of them even managed to repair the damage done by the mid-November market crash, which followed after the BCH hard fork. However, not all coins are faring equally, and XRP and TRON (TRX) are clear examples of this.

XRP price continues to decline

XRP spent the last three months performing rather well when compared to the rest of the market. It even managed to overtake the second spot on the list of largest coins by market cap, pushing Ethereum (ETH) to third place. The rivalry between the two only ever included the fight for the second spot, with Ethereum typically being the winner.

While XRP did overtake the position for months, Ethereum has finally managed to grow enough to return to the second place. In fact, ETH has been performing particularly well during the new bullish period, while XRP is experiencing losses. This has been going on for a while now, with XRP price either being dormant or dropping, without any significant increases.

As a result, the downward trend is expected to continue even while the rest of the market experiences gains. At the time of writing, the XRP price is at $0.316, right beneath the resistance level which sits at $0.34.

TRON (TRX) experiences drop as well

While the situation regarding XRP does not indicate that a change is in sight, a similar thing can be said for TRX. The coin’s price has been gradually dropping ever since January 27th, when it surged to reach the price of  $0.030. Since then, TRX was experiencing drops, followed by slight recoveries, only to drop again.

At the time of writing, its price is at $0.0254, and while the coin is currently seeing 1.43% growth, it is likely that this is just another short attempt at recovery before the next drop. Its most notable resistance currently lies at $0.028, which TRX attempted to reach several times, albeit unsuccessfully.

Meanwhile, the most notable support lies at $0.023, putting the coin’s current price halfway between the major support and resistance.

While the coin can go either way from here, the decline in its price has been just as constant as the one in XRP’s case, which makes it likely that the price will continue to go down, if the support doesn’t hold. Due to the dropping price, TRON’s market cap dropped as well, with the TRX currently holding the 9th spot on the list of largest coins by market cap. However, if the drop continues, it is possible that TRON will continue to sink rank-wise, and that it will be replaced by Binance Coin, which currently occupies the 10th position.

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.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  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.

The market for cryptocurrencies started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2009, and since then, so many cryptocurrencies have been launched that it gets hard to keep track of them. The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.

From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.

What is Libra?

Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.

Note: Libra Association was established by Facebook to look after the cryptocurrency and the transactions, and it was founded in Geneva, Switzerland.

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…
