RIPPLE: LA SEGUNDA CRIPTODIVISA MÁS VALIOSA DEL MUNDO… SOLO DETRÁS DEL BITCOIN

La criptodivisa es gestionada por una sola empresa y tiene conexiones con bancos como Santander y UBS.

Diferencias  Ripple es una moneda virtual que, a diferencia del resto, cuenta con el respaldo de algunas instituciones bancarias.

SELENA LARSON
(CNNMoney) –

En semanas recientes, el valor de Ripple ha aumentado, convirtiéndola en la segunda divisa digital más valiosa y haciéndola obtener atención reciente.

La criptodivisa, relativamente oscura, también conocida como XRP, ahora vale cerca de 2.6 dólares con una capitalización de mercado de más de 100,000 millones de dólares (mdd), de acuerdo con Coinmarketcap. A principios de diciembre, cotizaba a tan solo 25 centavos.

Incluso con el aumento, Ripple vale considerablemente menos que un bitcoin. Después de un diciembre tumultuoso, el bitcoin cotizaba a cerca de 15,000 dólares a finales del martes, con una capitalización de mercado de más de 250,000 mdd.

Lo que es diferente sobre ripple es que está controlada por solo una empresa: Ripple, con sede en San Francisco. Existen reportes de ejecutivos actuales y antiguos de Ripple que se convirtieron en multimillonarios de criptodivisas a partir de su auge reciente.

Ripple fue lanzado en 2012 para facilitar las transacciones financieras globales. Se diferencia de otras plataformas de divisas digitales por sus conexiones con bancos legítimos. Empresas que usan la plataforma de Ripple incluyen a Santander, Bank of America y UBS.

En semanas recientes, las empresas de servicios financieros en Japón y Corea del Sur han adoptado la tecnología de Ripple, ayudando a incrementar el precio de la criptodivisa.

De acuerdo con Stephen Powaga, jefe de investigación de la firma de inversiones Blockchain Momentum, ripple y otras criptodivisas tienen costos de transacción relativamente bajos, lo que los hace populares cuando la gente comenzó a buscar alternativas al bitcoin.

Pero a diferencia de bitcoin, Ripple no es creado, o “minado” por los usuarios. La empresa tiene el control.

Inicialmente creó 100,000 millones de monedas ripple y 38,000 millones de ellas se encuentran en circulación en este momento. Los administradores de Ripple pueden liberar hasta 1,000 millones de monedas al mes, lo que Powaga predice podría sobresaturar el mercado.

“Esto es algo preocupante para mí, pues si eligen liberarlas tan rápido como puedan, dentro de tan solo cuatro años, veremos duplicarse el suministro de Ripple”, dijo.

Eso podría ejercer presión sobre su precio.

“No estoy seguro de que algunos de los participantes más nuevos del mercado aprecien completamente el potencial de inflación”, dijo Powaga.

Los pagos que cruzan las fronteras que pueden tomar horas con bitcoin o días con transacciones financieras tradicionales pueden pasar en cuestión de segundos con Ripple, de acuerdo con la compañía.

Al igual que bitcoin, la red de pagos de Ripple, RippleNet, usa tecnología blockchain.

Un blockchain es un libro de contabilidad público que contiene la información de transacción de cualquiera que use el servicio. Las transacciones son agregadas a “bloques” o enlaces de código que componen la cadena, y cada transacción debe ser grabada en un bloque.

Ripple CEO claims XRP’s demand won’t be affected by USD-backed CBDC

With nation-states like Singapore well into the development of its own CBDC and China set to launch its ‘DCEP’ this year, all eyes are on the United States Federal Reserve and the possibility of it launching a U.S. dollar-backed CBDC. In fact, the Head of Blockchain technology at JP Morgan had reportedly said that if the Federal Reserve launched a coin, the firm would drop its JPM Coin. With so many central banks preparing to step into the world of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, where does Ripple stand?

In a recent interview, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse spoke about the possibility of a ‘Fed Coin,’ and how it would affect the company. “I don’t think in most of Europe and U.S, they’re going to circumvent the commercial banks,” he said, adding that whether the launch goes through or not, the San Francisco-based blockchain firm’s focus remains on commercial banks and payment providers.

However, Garlinghouse also said that Ripple is open to servicing other types of customers, comparing the firm’s growth to that of Amazon in the early days of the Internet, a time when it just sold books. The CEO of Ripple went on to address the firm’s rate of expansion, commenting,

“We view ourselves as a blockchain infrastructure company. The first vertical we’ve done is cross border payments,” he said. “We want to make sure we’re winning and cross border payments before we do another vertical. But we will certainly do other verticals leveraging these technologies.”

However, contrary to the sentiments shared by JP Morgan’s Head of Blockchain, Garlinghouse doesn’t believe that XRP’s continued existence and use is predicated on whether the Federal Reserve launches ‘Fed Coin.’ According to him, even if the Fed Coin launches, the need for a proper, cross-border settlement dynamic will remain and thus, there will be a need for a neutral, cross-border settlement asset like XRP.

This is an interesting observation to make as off late, many Federal Reserve officials have come out publicly to trash cryptocurrencies, while also teasing the release of this much-anticipated ‘Fed Coin.’ In light of the mistrust of public officials towards cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and XRP, many expect the ‘Fed Coin’ to pose a challenge to the same.

Whether or not this will be the case remains to be seen. However, with at least one central bank launching a fiat-backed national stablecoin this year, 2020 might be the year we finally find out.
