Not surprising, accordingly to the market development that is taking place now, with cryptocurrencies changing beds from green to red in a matter of a single day, the pair XRP/USD is changing hands just above $0.50 battling to keep its head above waters.

While Ripple is “not a bad investment” right now, major challenges exist when it comes to long-term prospects for its bank-oriented digital token (XRP), according to Weiss Ratings.   2 DILEMMAS FOR RIPPLE’S XRP TOKEN… Independent ratings agency Weiss Ratings began listing cryptocurrency grades since January of this year.

Bitcoin futures may have been launched with tremendous fanfare - XRP futures, on the other hand, not so much. But in fact, U.K.-based startup Crypto Facilities has been operating a futures market for the world's third-largest cryptocurrency, developed by blockchain startup Ripple Inc., for almost 18 months now.

Ripple News Update As pessimism grows in the cryptocurrency market, weak hands continue to offload XRP to strong hands. What do I mean? Well, “strong hands” represent the smart money, the people who move one step ahead of the crowd. By comparison, “weak hands” represent those who buy at the peak of the market peak. They are the dumb money, for lack of a better term. Your brain might instinctively associate bull markets with strong hands. But don’t trust that instinct. It’s lying to you.   Sponsored Strong hands invest during bear markets, precisely because assets trade cheap. They hold...

Although Ripple prices are enmeshed in the market-wide cryptocurrency slump, shrewd investors might have noticed a positive signal buried amid the noise. What am I talking about? Well, there was a report that SWIFT, Ripple’s main rival, is talking up its efforts in distributed ledger technology (DLT). For the uninitiated, DLT is the core innovation underlying Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum…basically, all the cryptocurrencies in existence.   Sponsored Ripple wants to disrupt SWIFT by using these distributed ledger innovations. That’s why it is comical to see SWIFT claiming proficiency in DLT. It’s not their strong suit! The mere fact they are broadcasting their...
