XRP spikes amid Coinbase listing surmise and xRapid launch confirmation



XRP Ripple

While the whole market is quiet, XRP is riding the wave at the moment, again, and things are beginning to look good for Ripple. XRP was trading just above $0.20 price range earlier this month, but it hiked to nearly $0.80. Following the series of announcements surrounding the launch of xRapid confirmation, XRP surged by 7.16% in the last 24 hours.

It is also important to know that there were series of hikes which resulted in a boost on Ripple’s market cap, thus, surpassing Ethereum’s for a couple of times this month. We should recall that the price of XRP had been staggering at the beginning of September before being at a price correction of $0.57.

XRP also saw some surges in the first two weeks of this month, but it still traded at the same momentum ($0.57) till the end of last week. The cryptocurrency further dipped to $0.44 on Tuesday this week (September, 25th) and surged to $0.54 on the same day at the back of Ripple’s announcements.

xRapid, A Good News for Ripple’s XRP

The status of XRP has increased as a result of the news and hype around the launch of xRapid. It is also necessary to know that other factors have made the price of XRP surge: recent partnerships and the long-term success of Ripple.

Moreover, the actual date of the launch of xRapid hasn’t been released yet, but there is a high probability that an official date of the commencement will be revealed very soon – probably before the end of next month.

xRapid, which is one of Ripple’s product will help to boost the financial liquidity of cross-border payments. It is also expected that xRapid will help in making border payments easier, cheaper, and faster.

Nonetheless, Ripple’s head of Regulatory Relations earlier stated during an interview with CNBC that xRapid will be launched in a months’ time. Ever since his announcement was made on CNBC, it has created FOMO (Fear of Missing out) among investors in the crypto market.

Additionally, things may have turned right for Ripple after Coinbase recently proclaimed its aim to list top altcoins to its platform. We do know that Coinbase is one of the biggest crypto-exchanges in the world. Coinbase hasn’t been kind to Ripple in the past as the exchange stated that despite Ripple is one of the largest cryptocurrency in the market, it is never going to list Ripple (XRP).

Notable personalities such as Brad Armstrong have earlier stated that it is not possible to list a cryptocurrency under the radar of SEC (Security Exchange Commission). However, Coinbase potentially changing its mind to add Ripple (XRP) is big news that will improve customers’ experience. It will also allow investors from different places around the world to access Ripple and its services.

The speculation that Coinbase might turn friendly to Ripple has also made the price of XRP surge. At the time of writing, XRP has a market capitalization $22.9 billion. It is currently in the green rising more than 20% in the last three days from Thursday this week. Another thing worth noting is, Ethereum’s current market cap is $23.7 billion, so there is a high possibility that XRP will overthrow Ethereum’s position and stay there for a very long period.

That all said, the crypto market is volatile, and it is expected that we see regular dips and surges. Hence, both Ethereum and Ripple’s XRP might keep changing positions; it is likely that we could see a surprising change in the coming weeks.

Top 4 Cryptocurrencies to Bet on in 2019



top 4 cryptocurrencies

The crypto winter ended and Bitcoin is breaking through the $5000 resistance barrier and leading a general charge in bullishness among cryptocurrencies has seen more positivity in the market than ever before. However, before any talk of a crypto spring should start, we need to look at what happened during the winter.

Many different platforms were either fully released or improved upon significantly. There has been a surge of innovation and the crystallization of ideas. The market isn’t just about crypto trading or bitcoin trading; it has become more about what businesses will leverage blockchain in the best way. Investors need to look at what a coin offers beyond just being a cryptocurrency. What partners does it have, what is the long term plan and is it liquid enough?

Investing in altcoins has never been a better option than right now. The volatility index shows that the market is growing without having to rely on Bitcoin. While Bitcoin still determines and up or down trend, the altcoins do not follow this trend exactly. More and more tokens and coins are surviving and thriving on their own merits rather than riding in Bitcoin’s wake.

The four coins to follow are our pick for the top 4 cryptocurrencies most likely to give you substantial returns by the end of 2019.

2019 Will Be a Big Year for Luxcore




With the recent surge of Bitcoin in the last few weeks, many traders are hoping for a more profitable year than 2018.  Even if that comes to fruition, my advice over the past year remains the same.  Traders must look for companies and projects that offer blockchain solutions with real-world use and complete transparency.  One company that meets both of those requirements is Luxcore (LUX).

What is Luxcore?

Luxcore is a blockchain solutions and services ecosystem that focuses on developing security and privacy products.  The Luxcore platform utilizes the PHI2 algorithm powered blockchain to build a wide variety of product offerings.  One of the platform’s primary goals is to help close the gap between regular consumers and enterprise users by introducing specific use-cases for each group of users.

Exciting Roadmap for 2019

As mentioned earlier, one of the absolute requirements of building a successful blockchain project is to be fully and completely transparent.  Luxcore certainly meets that requirement with the introduction of their most recent roadmap.

The roadmap does a great job of showing which projects are in development, how far along each project is, and the expected completion date of each project.  With this, LUX traders and potentially interested consumers can follow along and monitor the status of projects that they are especially interested in.

Since many crypto projects have inevitably disappointed the market, offering…

Can XRP Break Out of the Falling Wedge?




XRP is the third largest cryptocurrency by market cap, which currently sits at around $13.5 billion. The coin also has a price of $0.325316 at the time of writing, after seeing a significant price correction of 4% in the last 24 hours.

Just like many other cryptocurrencies, XRP has seen massive losses during the 2018 bear market. However, this falling wedge seems to have seen a real breakout in 2019, as the crypto winter started to let go, and a lot of coins saw significant price recoveries.

XRP’s falling wedge was much more difficult to stop, which can be seen on its long-term chart. But, the recent bull runs allowed numerous cryptocurrencies to finally see growth, and XRP is definitely one of them. The charts also show that the coin’s falling wedge has seen a breakout, which is an excellent thing for the future of XRP’s price.

However, for the coin’s price to truly turn and stay bullish, XRP needs to see larger volumes. The experts believe that this is the key for a new rally, one which would allow XRP to reach true recovery.

XRP price performance and predictions

As mentioned, XRP had struggled to start growing even when most other cryptocurrencies were drawn in a number of bull runs. While the coin has been acting the same as others until mid-February, it is clear that the…
