Los asiáticos enloquecen por Ripple

Published

on

Ripple (XRP), una de las cinco criptomonedas con un tope de mercado de $ 46.2 mil millones, subió un 57.2% el jueves, superando a todas las principales monedas de cifrado y superando $ 1 por primera vez, según los datos de Coin Market Cap.

“Los asiáticos se están volviendo locos por Ripple”, dice Alexey Ivanov, CEO y cofundador de Polynom Crypto Capital, una gestora de fondos de inversión de criptomonedas y blockchain con sede en Moscú.

Las ganancias de los precios de hoy son en gran parte impulsadas por los jugadores de criptografía asiáticos. Ripple ha visto un aumento en el volumen de transacciones en las últimas 24 horas en casi un 25% en la bolsa surcoreana Bithumb y un 10% en Bitfinex en Hong Kong. Ripple es como una Western Union que usa tecnología blockchain. Es un sistema de pago digital que permite descuentos para su servicio para aquellos que pagan por usarlo en la moneda Ripple. La compañía está dirigida por el CEO Brad Garlinghouse, quien ocupó puestos ejecutivos de nivel medio en AOL y Yahoo! entre 2003 y 2012.

La compañía dijo la semana pasada que una coalición de 61 bancos en Japón, organizada por SBI Ripple Asia en Tokio, lanzará un nuevo programa piloto de sistemas de pagos digitales con Woori Bank y Shinhan Bank de Corea del Sur utilizando la red Ripple blockchain.

Los inversores en criptomonedas creen que Asia representa al menos un tercio del volumen de comercio de criptomonedas, y los principales usuarios proceden de Japón, Corea del Sur y China a través de Hong Kong. Si bien Ripple tiene un servicio, su gran valorización depende de que ese servicio se convierta en un sistema de pagos que las compañías quieran usar.



Casi todas las nuevas empresas que emiten sus propias criptomonedas están enormemente sobrevaloradas, pero de todos modos los inversores están invirtiendo en estas nuevas monedas. Aquellos que no están preocupados por perder todo su capital de inversión creen que no tienen nada más que una ventaja una vez que superan el hecho de que su inversión puede volverse inútil. Para aquellos con dinero serio para quemar, es difícil ignorar el lado positivo.

Los inversores que ponen $ 15 para comprar solo un bitcoin en diciembre de 2012 ahora tienen más de $ 15,000. Los inversores creen que, si ponen la misma cantidad de dinero en onda expansiva, u otras monedas de menor precio, podrían obtener un resultado similar. Para los inversores tradicionales, nada de esto tiene mucho sentido, pero en estas primeras entradas de la exageración de bitcoin, los fundamentos no importan.

Los inversores en estas empresas deben estar preparados para perder toda su inversión.

“Ripple comenzó el año con un valor de un centavo y ahora está a un dólar debido a que los bancos en Japón y Corea del Sur están probando el uso de la tecnología de Ripple para transacciones flash”, dice Ivanov. No tiene XRP en ninguno de sus cinco fondos centrados en Blockchain.

Se espera que los bancos de Japón y Corea del Sur comiencen las pruebas de conducción de RippleNet en el primer trimestre. La oficina de Ripple en San Francisco aún no estaba abierta para comentarios inmediatos. La moneda se utilizará principalmente o instituciones y no para transacciones minoristas como Western Union o PayPal.

It’s important to ensure crypto-industry is mature and battle-tested, claims Ripple’s Brad Garlinghouse

Published

on

The Senate’s hearing on Facebook’s Libra with David Marcus is the talk of the town. Brad Garlinghouse, CEO of Ripple, is the latest to give his views on the hearing. Garlinghouse said that the debate was necessary for the crypto-industry to mature.

“I’m heartened by the (largely) thoughtful dialogue from this week’s congressional hearings on  @Libra_ . Committee members are supportive of blockchain and “payments innovation in the U.S., but skeptical that Facebook is the right steward given the history of broken trust.”

He added that the crypto-industry needs to mature and it would only happen if tough questions are asked, ensuring that the crypto-industry is “battle-tested” with proper regulatory oversight to protect investors and customers.

The Senate is today acknowledging the existence of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology that is taking the world by the storm. This hearing comes after President Donald Trump sent out a slew of tweets outlining his negative views on Bitcoin.

Congressman Patrick McHenry was also one to add fuel to this fire, stating,

“Whether Facebook is involved or not, change is here. Digital currencies exist. Blockchain technology is real… So the question then becomes – what are American policymakers going to do to meet the challenges and the opportunities of this new world of innovation?”

One particular word that keeps popping up in the hearing and with the SEC is ‘innovation.’ While regulators and policymakers are trying their best to make regulations happen, it has been a slow ride. SEC commissioner Hester Peirce said it best when she said that the SEC might be driving innovation to other places. However, she reiterated that the SEC wants it to be a “safe harbor” approach.

A Twitter user, @XRPCryptoWolf, commented,

“I kept telling everyone since the beginning of the year that 2019 is the year that we finally get regulatory clarity on #Crypto & #Blockchain from many countries around the world Also Brad has been tweeting a lot of threads lately so I’m guessing this is a bullish sign for 2019?”

Puma Browser takes on Brave, Chrome; launches first full browser with native Coil support on App Store

Published

on

Ripple and Coil have taken their partnership forward, with Coil’s Puma Browser being linked with Ripple’s Interledger protocol. The web browser was made available on the app store on July 17, with Puma Browser’s official Twitter handle announcing the same,

“1/  We’ve been hard at work re-building Puma Browser with Firefox-iOS as base.
Polina, who joined as founding iOS engineer, has made amazing progress and we’re happy to announce that we are now in the App Store with much better @Coil support!”

Stefan Thomas, Co-creator of Interledger and the Founder and CEO of Coil, also relished in the news of Puma browser being the first browser with native Coil support. The beta version of the browser was released in April for users to take a spin at. However, during the same, various problems in the payments feature and other user experience issues were found. Following the finding, the team worked on those problems and released the “more than needed” update.

Twitter user and beta tester, @nixerFFM, commented,

“This is great news! I am a beta tester from the early days on and I must say that change to the iOS Firefox core was more than needed.
For sure it made things easier for you and the user experience so so much better for us. Keep it up!”

The Android version of the application was available on Play Store, but according to @PumaBrowser, the android applications lacks the swiftness and isn’t “as mature for now.” Although users appeared satisfied with the browser, it has to compete with other existing browsers now. Since Puma Browser is based on Firefox, the browser is already in the big leagues, but the competition is real with Chrome and Brave browser in the mix.
