XRP price saw some rough treatment from the crypto market in 2019 so far, but there are indications that things might change for the third largest coin by market cap.

In the first days of January, XRP fluctuated between a support level at $0.3500 and a resistance at $0.375. However, come January 10th, the coin got caught up in the bear market that pushed its price further down. While the support level at $0.325 managed to stop its drop temporarily, the drop still continued in the final days of January, forcing XRP to drop all the way down to the support level at $0.30.

The coin even broke this support twice in the first half of February, but it also attempted to grow several times. Its first surge was stopped by a support-turned-resistance at $0.325, while the second growth was cut short by a resistance at $0.31. In mid-February, XRP remained stuck between this resistance and its major support at $0.30, which finally changed with the bull run on February 18th.

The bull run allowed XRP price to easily breach the resistance at $0.31, and it was only stopped by the largest resistance at $0.325. Even so, the coin remained close to this upper level for quite a while, before it gradually dropped to the newly created support at $0.31.

The lack of major bearish activity throughout March allowed the coin to use this level as its base resistance, while the new strongest support formed itself at $0.32. In fact, XRP fluctuated between these two levels for nearly the entire March 2019.

Then, about a week ago, on March 23rd, the coin approached its support, which is when the bearish market struck again, albeit only for a little while. Still, the unexpected drop that followed forced the coin to break this support and drop all the way down to the former one, at $0.30.

XRP sees a sudden spike up

The coin did not remain in the depths for long, but it did stay down for long enough for its support at $0.31 to turn into a strong resistance once again. This is the level that XRP price remained very close to for the entire past week, and it finally managed to break it earlier today, March 30.

$0.315 currently acts as a support level, and XRP price even managed to reach a minor resistance at $0.320. The coin then suffered a minor correction, but it currently sees growth once again. At the time of writing, XRP price sits at $0.319812, after a 3.91% growth in the past 24 hours.

If the coin continues growing, it is possible that it might break this resistance, and go for a higher mark. Depending on the market behavior, XRP is likely to reach the $0.32 mark in the following hours, and if the resistance breaks, it will possibly become a new major support. The crypto market currently sees another of its minor bull runs, which were quite frequent in the second half of February and most of March.

However, if the resistance holds, XRP is likely to continue fluctuating between $0.315 and $0.32 for the foreseeable future. The lack of strength and the occasional bearish wave seem to be its largest problems at the moment, but if the growth continues, then the market might finally shake off even these last remnants of the year-long crypto winter.

Whatever happens, it appears that many have decided that this is a perfect time to buy XRP, as the coin’s trading volume in the past 24 hours sits well above $1 billion, while its current market cap managed to exceed $13.3 billion.

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.

ICTE May Bring About Sweeping Changes for Cryptocurrency Exchanges

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm during the last few years. An entirely new financial market was created almost overnight which has captured the imagination of all its participants. Cryptocurrency is even starting to attract institutional money from investment banks, hedge funds, and other proprietary trading firms. Despite the rapid growth, traders remain extremely frustrated by having to deal with the fragmented nature of centralized crypto exchanges.

A Change is Needed

When cryptocurrency first began, there weren’t many participants and the trading volume was relatively insignificant. But, over time, that has radically changed. Some tokens now have a capitalization in the billions and are being traded 24-7 by institutions all over the world. Despite the volume, significant problems exist with the current way that exchanges work. Some of those problems include the following:

  • Constant fear of hackers
  • Exchange manipulation
  • Fragmented liquidity
  • Risk of identity theft

One of the biggest issues regarding centralized exchanges is the risk of being hacked. These hack stories seem to always be circulating around the internet. While experienced traders may have the tools to avoid becoming a victim, potential new traders have zero interest in dealing with this. And it’s not just the small exchanges that are at risk. Even large exchanges, such as Mt. Gox and Binance, are subject to being hacked.

Another huge risk is having to deal with…

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
