Undoubtedly, Ripple is one of the widely-loved blockchain projects in the world today and this due to its numerous adoptions, listings, and utility. Continuing with its mainstream adoption rush, Ripple’s XRP has made it to the highly-awaited newly-launched crypto-exchange platform of Turkey, Coinzo.

The exchange went live just a couple of days ago and decided to add XRP to the list of digital assets available to be traded on its platform. The breaking news came through a tweet by a member of Ripple community, @LeoHadjiiloizou. Tweet reads:

Turkey is taking more interests in cryptocurrency, and with most of its exchanges indulging cryptocurrencies, we may see a big boom in the crypto sphere over there.

Coinzo is a new cryptocurrency exchange ready to grow in the crypto world. It currently has six digital assets available for trading including BTC, ETH, XRP, EOS, HOT, and GAS. The crypto-exchange itself said in a tweet:

The crypto currency exchange Coinzo is online, offering Global services as standard! #kriptopara #BTC #ETH #XRP #EOS #NEO #Holochain #CNZ $BTC $ETH $XRP $EOS $NEO $HOT $CNZ.” 

Coinzo also highlighted the available trading pairs on its official Twitter page, the platform notes,

Pairs that you can process in Coinzo/try/try/try/try/try/// #kriptopara $BTC $ETH $XRP $NEO $EOS $HOT #NEO #BTC #EOS #BTC #XRP #BTC #ETH #BTC #bitcoin #coinzo.”

Ripple’s XRP, on the other hand, is the third biggest cryptocurrency with a market capitalization of about $20 billion (19.9 B at the time of press, to be more specific). The blockchain was created by its progenitors: Chris Larsen, Jed McCaleb and Arthur Britto in 2012. Its token, XRP, was also established at that time.

Subsequently, Ripple’s XRP ledger is an open-source technology that was created a year later. The XRP ledger supports faster payments and decentralized exchange of other cryptocurrencies. It is important to know that through this ledger, XRP payments can be settled within a few seconds with a less amount of energy, and it can handle up to 1,500 transactions per second due to its scalability capabilities.

Furthermore, Ripple’s XRP is not just any cryptocurrency, because it aims to solve real-life problems. The cryptocurrency is poised to change the way cross-border payments are done across the world today.

Coming back to XRP listing on newly-launched Turkish exchange Coinzo, Ripple community have expressed their happiness concerning the event as it would raise the interest of Turkish investors towards Ripple’s ecosystem.

XRP Price Analysis

At the time of writing, alongside all other significant coins, XRP is in the red and trading at $0.497. In the last 24 hours, the XRP/USD trading pair is faced with the $0.49 resistance level. It is however probable that if the bull momentum moves the price above the current resistance level, then the price of XRP hit $0.62 soon. At that price, gains can be achieved, because, at $0.62, a price rally upward is inevitable.

Also, XRP’s high SMA and RSI level clearly show overbought and this indicates a short-term bull trend. If the price of XRP goes below its current SMA level, then we may see a bearish trend against our predictions.

Why Blockchain Projects Keep Failing

Published

If you’ve been keeping up with news coming out of the blockchain community over the past year, you’ve probably heard countless projects hyped as the next best thing—only for them to fall off completely off the map a few months later. While some of these projects offered no practical solutions and seemed destined to fail, others creatively used blockchain technology to enhance the way we perform day-to-day tasks.

So, What’s the Problem?

For starters, many of these founders have no real experience running a business or managing finances. Instead, teams are usually comprised of programmers and tech geeks with the ability to develop blockchain-driven apps, but have no clue about project management, allocating resources, effective team building or marketing.

What’s more, when you look at the average blockchain start-up’s website, you’ll probably find a list of team members with accolades a mile long. And many of these “achievements” are in similar blockchain projects that have yet to take off. This makes it hard to distinguish between what is hype and what is credible information, which scares off all but the high-risk investor.

Project Success Starts at the Team Level

The sudden interest in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology can be compared to the California Gold Rush. Everyone wants to get in on the ground floor so that they can make as much money as possible.

Unfortunately, this mentality isn’t just…

STEEMIT Running Out Of STEAM?

Has Steemit seen its glory days run dry? There have been many rumors that the CEO Ned Scott has pushed the company to the blockchain focus that he forgot about Steem being a social media platform. Now, these are just things some of the former employees have been heard saying, but it is a rather interesting take as to what is going on. Give the following video a watch where I break down what is happening with Steem. I also give my thoughts on what may happen to other large ICOs and how we may see this trend continue as we have seen with ConsenSys laying off 10% of their workforce.

If the big name projects are starting to do this will it also have a trickle-down effect on other ICO’s which have no products and are running out of cash? I definitely think so, and I also see this negatively affecting Ethereum for the mid-term. The question many have been asking is just how long can the bottom 1800 projects last with the current market conditions? How many ICOs did not liquidate their Ethereum and now are stuck with 1/10th the cash flow or more in some cases, how will they pay to continue operations? What about the growing number of projects laying off employees like…

In this bear market, everybody’s asking the same questions. Why is Bitcoin falling? When will the market turn around? Is this the end of the crypto boom?

However, before we can answer questions like these, we need to step back and do an honest appraisal of where our industry stands and what is really holding it back. Despite its growing popularity, cryptocurrency still struggles to gain mainstream appeal. While crypto has managed to distance itself from the early days, when it was used to buy illegal goods online, the currency still conjures up negative feelings for a lot of people unfamiliar with the technology — and all too often, for good reasons.

Cryptocurrency is still relatively new, which means that many casual users are still exploring different ways to use crypto in their day-to-day lives. Unfortunately, this lack of knowledge leaves a lot of users vulnerable to scammers seeking to take advantage of their ignorance and inexperience.

We’ve contacted various types of people within the crypto community, surveying newbies, traders, investors, and professionals, asking what the biggest problems in crypto are. We found there to be three major problems holding the industry back:

Scammers

Failed projects

Immature technology

Who hasn’t been scammed at least once?

The crypto community is overrun with scammers taking advantage of inexperienced and naive users. What’s more, scams don’t only occur on an individual level.…
