Ripple: XRP mechanism demonstrated by r3 for its new adoption journey with Corda Settler

Published

on

Yesterday, the second-largest cryptocurrency in the world, XRP, achieved major adoption goals when it was picked by the blockchain solutions firm, r3 as the first settlement mechanism for Corda Settler. Post the news, r3 posted a YouTube video on its channel, explaining the working behind the Settler. Here, r3 also wrote:

“Corda Settler is an open-source CorDapp to help Corda users settle transactions. Corda Settler provides a bridge to any payment rail that can return a cryptographic proof of settlement. This includes any ‘traditional’ domestic and cross border payment systems able to return such a proof, as well as blockchain and cryptocurrency-based rails.”

The video began with the explanation of what the Settler does, stating that there are two legs of the transaction wherein one leg creates an obligation to complete the other leg. Furthermore, Corda Settler allows uses to complete the second leg on any system, whether it is an on-blockchain rail, a cryptocurrency system or a traditional system.

Subsequently, r3 told the users that in case of the second leg not being on Corda, it will provide two integration points – one for the users to initiate payments and the other for the confirmation of the payment status.

The explanation then took a turn to cite an example of the mentioned process. Here, it stated:

“A network of participants using Corda Settler – Company A and Company B are the counterparties. They are using a notary service on Corda and they both have access to nodes in other payment systems.”

Next, the video demonstrated the mechanism keeping XRP as the mode of payment. As per the demo, company B has an obligation to pay $100 to company A. As a beneficiary, company A can choose the currency in which it would like to receive the payment.

Here, the beneficiary chooses XRP to update the obligation wherein it will get the current exchange rate from an exchange to further update the obligation with the new currency. The beneficiary may also select details, such as the address on the XRP network to receive the payment with the amount.

Post all the required signatures, company A will distribute the obligation with company B in order for the latter to initiate the payment. The video further explained:

“Company B is now ready to settle this obligation and so initiates a transaction from their XRP node. This obligation can be settled in one or many transactions. Company B gets a payment submission confirmation from the XRP network, updates the obligation with the transaction hash and sends it to company A and the settlement.”

The last leg of the transaction is completed after the settlement queries transaction with the specified transaction ID. r3 explained that once company B’s payment has been confirmed, the settlement marks the payment as settled, obtains a notary signature and distributed the updated obligation to both the companies.

r3 also mentioned that this has shown an imperative connection between digital assets and applications on Corda and other settlement systems.

Ripple’s XRP Follows the Market Leader and Trades at a Key Level

Published

on

Ripple’s XRP has been following the movements of market leader Bitcoin. Both dropped significantly in price leading up to Friday last week but underwent a small recovery over the weekend.

XRP now trades at the key $0.3 level. The market drop on Friday which brought market leader Bitcoin to a 2018 low around $2800 saw XRP drop to $0.285. It had since recovered back above $0.3 over the weekend and currently trades around this point.

With the market back to declining today, it is likely that XRP will drop and potentially stay below $0.3. The 2018 low for XRP is around $0.25, so a return to bearish movements may bring XRP price to this level. The momentum is on the side of sellers with both the MACD and RSI decreasing to the downside.

The market leader Bitcoin which represents over 55% of the entire cryptocurrency market cap has been recording similar movements. A recovery over the weekend brought the price briefly above $3600. Price has started declining since and this has likely resulted in a lower high being formed in both Bitcoin and XRP.

$3000 is the next key level to monitor for Bitcoin, and a drop to this level may bring the entire cryptocurrency market cap below $100 Billion. A drop below either of these may spark another sever sell-off across the market.

Cryptocurrency Market Cap

Key Takeaways:

  • Bitcoin and XRP recovered over the weekend after a bearish week but have since returned to depreciating.
  • The recovery over the weekend was likely a lower high forming, and the next significant downside move may result in new 2018 lows forming.
  • The key level to monitor for XRP is $0.25 and the key level to monitor for Bitcoin is $3000. A drop to these levels would likely result in the entire cryptocurrency market dropping below $100 Billion and this may spark a severe sell-off.

Tron Price Dips in the Red Following Fresh Bearish Momentum

Published

on

All cryptocurrencies will seemingly be subjected to a fresh round of bearish momentum in the coming hours and days. The hourly charts have looked relatively weak all morning, and it seems most of yesterday’s gains will be wiped out fairly soon. The Tron price is one of the first to budge, as its losses in USD and BTC value are already piling up rather quickly.

Tron Price Starts to Slide Again

Although yesterday was a very promising day for Bitcoin, digital assets, and alternative currencies, Mondays usually offer something entirely different. There has been plenty of bearish momentum during the first day of the week for most of 2018, and this week will not necessarily be any different. If the Tron price is any real indication, things will go from positive to negative fairly quickly. That is an unfortunate trend, but it was also to be expecdOver the past 24 hours, the value per TRX has dropped by 1.5% in USD value and 2.5% in BTC value. This is a very big setback, considering the Tron price was looking rather healthy just a few hours ago. More market pressure for Bitcoin usually results in altcoins losing value. This trend has been in place for months now, and it seems nothing has changed in this department either.

When looking across Twitter, it would seem some interesting TRX-related discussions are taking place. First of all, Justin Sun acknowledges there needs to be a vast improvement in how cryptocurrency can be bought. This is not a problem unique to Tron, though, as purchasing Bitcoin remains an ongoing struggle for a lot of people as well. Especially when it comes to the elderly, getting involved in cryptocurrencies is extremely complicated.

While that discussion is taking place, a completely different tone can be found in the tweet by Analysing Crypto. It seems this account doesn’t like Tron all that much, primarily because of the “bragging, noobs fav coin, and announcements of announcements” approach this altcoin is well-known for. An interesting view, although there will be plenty of people who disagree with these statements first and foremost.Regardless of how people feel about Tron as a cryptocurrency, there are still those who tend to favor the altcoin for what it can offer in terms of trading profits. TheCryptoViking is one of the people looking at this altcoin as a way to diversify the current portfolio, and also pocket some profits over the coming weeks. It is always a good idea to effectively look into different currencies and assets at all times.Although Tron is the first major altcoin to go in the red, there is no indication a lot of damage will be done in the process. The entire year 2018 has seen sufficient bearish momentum to keep markets in the red, albeit ever so slightly. As such, there is a chance the Tron price will rebound fairly quickly, but for now, the minor losses will need to be endured.
