A couple of days ago, eFin tweeted from its official Twitter handler that XRP was added to their platform. The exchange is going to start its operations by next month, and this listing could be quite substantial for XRP. We’ve reasons to back our words.

Very few blockchain projects in the cryptosphere are as complex and extensive as TokenPay. It has fingers in a lot of pies, and it even has its own cryptocurrency called TokenPay (TPAY) which is not that impressive by market capitalization standards ( roughly 15 million, in total) and holds the 173rd place.

And yet, it’s one of the very few coins that have been trading in green numbers in the last couple of days, which is quite impressive for days in which all the top 14 currencies kept trading in the red zone (yes, they are in the green today).

Why this new exchange listing XRP is special?

TokenPay defines itself as a “decentralized self-verifying merchant payment platform” based entirely on mathematics and designed to enable secure transactions between multiple parties.

The statement is deceptively simple. It’s a whole ecosystem of financial services in and out of the cryptosphere with links and associations with many crypto projects as well as traditional financial institutions (read banks).

And now, the project is baking a brand new pie where it can put yet another finger. It’s going to be online next December 19th. It’s called eFin, and it will be a brand new cryptocurrency exchange by all possible standards. And as noted in the start, it’s going to list XRP right from the beginning.

The new exchange answers to TokenPay’s mission to keep meeting the needs of merchants and consumers, and it will be an integral part of the wide company’s ecosystem.

eFin will be a secure, non-custodial, unhackable, private, and, most importantly, decentralized exchange. The decentralized bit is particularly relevant because it will be the first decentralized cryptocurrency exchange in history.

It will enable users to tackle real-time, large-scale, crypto to fiat conversions for the whole TokenPay ecosystem. That includes TokenSuisse and Germany’s AG Bank. It will support quicker and easy TPAY, LTC, and XVG  conversions to mBTC that you can use on CryptoBet, Esports.io, and TokenGaming.

So why is it so important to finally have a decentralized exchange? Security. Currently available exchanges are centralized, of course. It means that their security is only as good as their security team, and many of them have already had serious problems with hackers. In that regard, they’re no different than any normal website in the world. A decentralized website (for crypto exchange in this case) that works on a good blockchain, can’t be hacked.

It’s doesn’t depend on how good your digital security personnel is, it’s that good a blockchain just can’t be hacked at all. Yes, we know that Verged was hacked three times already this year, that’s why we included the adjective “good”.

Bitcoin, XRP, Tron, Litecoin, Ethereum have never been hacked once. An extra advantage regarding security is that being a non-custodial exchange; it won’t hold your coins. They will always be with you, so even if it could be hacked (which it won’t), hackers would find nothing to steal because there are no tokens there.

And this very advanced and innovative exchange is going to list XRP (alongside Litecoin and Verge) from the very beginning. The choice makes sense because XRP is now the world’s second largest by market capitalization and it’s outperformed even Bitcoin concerning profitability during the last couple of years.

Many crypto observers now believe that it will become the next big cryptocurrency, with a real chance to outperform Bitcoin in every way in the not-so-far future.

The good news keeps popping up for Ripple’s XRP. Expect a bullish run.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

IOTA (MIOTA) Pending Update Might Bring Huge Gains in Days to Come

IOTA

The crypto space is erupting once again, and if popular predictions are correct — the growth is only starting. However, in the vast sea of altcoins that hold the massive potential to go big in the future, we would like to set IOTA aside as one of the coins that might blow up quite soon.

As always, there are no guarantees of this, as the crypto space still lacks regulations, and remains highly volatile. To see proof of this, all you need to do is look at Bitcoin, which goes up by $1,000 within a day, only to slowly drop by $700 in the following week, and then repeat the process. In other words, there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding any project, and that includes IOTA.

However, even with all of that in mind, many are quite optimistic about this particular project, especially after a recent announcement. The announcement in question indicates that IOTA is about to see a massive upgrade. In most cases, this would be more than enough of a reason to expect the coin to start performing better. But, in IOTA’s case, this is nearly a guarantee that it will.

The update is believed to carry a lot of fixes for a lot of problems that traders and investors have been reporting for a while. No crypto is perfect, and since IOTA is…
