The last few months since March this year have been trying for any XRP HODLer who probably got in due to the spectacular highs the digital assets experienced in early January. Everyone was expecting a moon landing with price predictions of $10 by mid this year and $20 by the end of the year. Yes. It is heartbreaking. But do not despair for here is a real reason that XRP is simply recharging for taking off.
To begin with, we need to observe the price history of XRP prior to the excitement of last November up until January. XRP was pretty much unknown from 2013 up until around May 2017 when it started spiking a bit in the markets. It rose from $0.03 to $0.30 in a matter of a few weeks from April to May, then once again relaxed up until November when the crypto-wide bull run was initiated. XRP is once again to its old ways of consolidating volumes to once again zoom past the charts. Judging by its past, the next increase in volume and price will probably not last long, just like the last few times it has mooned. But once done, it will settle at higher levels of perhaps closer to $1.
So how will it do this?
The SBI Holdings crypto exchange of VCTRADE will be a major factor of XRP mooning in the next few months. It will not be Coinbase to release the full potential of XRP as everyone thinks. No. It is SBI for they have even devised plans to offer XRP derivatives in the future and probably through their new venture with Charlotte (NC) based Clear Markets Firm. SBI has invested $9 Million in the firm that also has offices in New York, London and Tokyo.
Through this new venture at Clear Markets, SBI plans on building a derivatives market that will allow institutional investors to buy investment products based on XRP and other prominent digital assets. But XRP will be a breath of fresh air from all the BTC products available. The hype and excitement will cause a knee-jerk reaction to the price of XRP.
Knowing this, there is only one thing a savvy HODLer can do: come up with a grand master plan. When XRP shoots up, know when to sell and at what margin of profit. Yes. This might sound contrary to what a HODLer would do but the main point of selling high is to buy back XRP at a lower price when the excitement declines. This way, your profits are in XRP.
In conclusion, it can be said that the SBI Holdings company is the key to making XRP great in the markets once again. The name of the firm – Holdings – can be interchanged to mean HODLing, and this can be an indirect sign that this is the firm that will change it all for XRP HOLDers.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
Development and Procurement Lead, Gabby Dizon explained, “Despite our initial focus, we found ourselves with a unique opportunity to host some of the works of Mr. Hiro Yamagata. We are collaborating with Japanese artist Hiro Yamagata to enshrine some of his artwork into NFTs.”
