Stellar (XLM) – You can’t go wrong with XLM as an investment

Published

on

The market has been trading sideways for some time now. This means that the risk of another huge drop is still there, before a major push to the upside similar to the 2017 rally. This makes altcoins a high risk, until there is a clear upside break in the whole market. Nonetheless, there are certain altcoins that hold lots of potential regardless of the direction that the market goes. One such altcoin is Stellar (XLM). It doesn’t matter whether Stellar (XLM) drops further, the highest possibility is that it will be headed much higher in the long run. It has strong fundamentals that could see it gain in value over time.

One of these fundamentals is its potential to disrupt the banking industry. This will happen mainly through the IBM blockchain world wire.  Through the blockchain world wire, banks will be in a position to handle cross-border payments in just a few seconds.

This is a process that currently takes days, and comes at a hefty fee. It doesn’t take rocket science to see that this is the future of banking. Besides, even though there are other blockchains targeting this market, Stellar stands out. It stands out in the sense that it is a fully decentralized network, which means that banks don’t have regulatory hurdles in implementing it.

Besides, stellar is a partner to IBM, which is the tech company powering over 97% of the global banking industry. This means that stellar has a leg up in terms of adoption. Already there is speculation that 40 – 50 major banks are about to adopt the blockchain world wire. This once confirmed will propel Stellar (XLM) to new heights. On this basis alone, there is no way that Stellar could lose value on the long run. It may fluctuate in the short term, just like the rest of the market, but its overall trajectory is upwards.

On top of that, Stellar is right in the middle of what could be the next revolution of the stock markets. That’s because, it is in the middle of the STO revolution. Security tokens are on the rise all across the world, and exchanges focused on security tokens are on the rise. As this trend gains momentum, stellar could see its value rise significantly. So far, a number of stellar based projects have hit the market. Stellar stands to make it big in this market due to its regulatory compliance.  Once STOs become the norm in raising financing, the value of stellar stands to rise significantly going into the future.  This pretty much anchors its value irrespective of how it plays out in the short-term.

In essence, for an investor thinking long-term about blockchain, stellar (XLM) is one of the cryptos to hold. The fundamentals are so strong that any chances of going wrong are minimal. Long-term stellar (XLM) could easily push way past $1, in the next Bull Run.

Ripple Price Analysis: XRP Lost Critical 5000 SAT Support Area – What’s Next?

Published

on

Ripple’s XRP has seen a price decline totaling 6% over the past 24 hours of trading, bringing the current price for the coin down to around $0.3754 at press time. The cryptocurrency has lost a further 16% over the past 7 trading days.

This price drop largely is due to the retracement seen in Bitcoin, although XRP also has seen difficulty when priced against Bitcoin.

XRP currently is ranked in 3d place amongst the top cryptocurrency projects by market cap value, holding a $15.89 billion market cap, according to CoinMarketCap at time of publication.

Looking at the XRP/USD 1-Day Chart:

  • Since our previous XRP/USD analysis, we can see that XRP/USD has fallen further from the $0.39 level, to where it currently is trading at around $0.375. XRP has strong resistance beneath it provided by the 200-day moving average around the $0.3615 level.
  • From above: The nearest levels of resistance lie at $0.3790 and $0.3943. If the bulls can continue further above $0.40, higher resistance can be located at $0.4235, $0.4376 and $0.4617. Above this, further resistance lies at $0.48 and $0.50.
  • From below: The nearest level of support now sits between $0.36 and $0.35. Beneath $0.35, further support is located at $0.34, $0.32 and $0.30.
  • Trading volume has dropped significantly from the average level seen during May 2019.
  • The RSI is in a precarious position as it hovers around the 50 level which indicates indecision within the market. If the RSI drops beneath 50, we can expect XRP/USD to head lower.

Market momentum in the cryptocurrency industry is of paramount importance, since it is often considered as an important marker in the propagation of crypto-use. Ever since the end of the crushing bear market, there have been several instances of massive amounts of cryptocurrencies being moved, especially when it comes to XRP, the third largest coin on the charts.

According to @WhaleAlert, a cryptocurrency data aggregator, there have been multiple drops of large XRP sums, amounting to a total of close to 26 million XRP. The first drop included a transfer of 10 million XRP from a Ripple Over-the-Counter distribution wallet to another unknown wallet in the cryptosphere.

The transfer amounted to a whopping $3.732 million and had a time stamp at 23 May 8:00 UTC. The transmitter address was rMaV5QT2ZCwVFArQ7sdQMxhtzg6mgqJ47h, while the receiver address was rEFtdHuyxgUjDL4t3gBsesQwHtnDy2W8rC.

The first transaction of 6.862 million XRP was preceded by another transfer of 6 million XRP, which occurred from an unknown wallet to a Nexo wallet. The unknown wallet’s address was rhCgcS11iumWeutBF4CPEu7G2zTXkh5oUZ, while the Nexo wallet’s address was rNrWGYBb9GJoRrZKqpH6PigQ2fdj7dRLyk.

The third significant XRP transaction that occurred in the space of 12 hours included another drop of 10 million XRP. The exact amount of XRP transferred was 10.11 million, moved from Ripple to an unknown wallet. The Ripple address on Bithomp was rhmc2XPEbmCN8MW6dcoMUGBuzzp65uKpEn, while the unknown wallet had an address of rH51tppA1cF5J75GS6MqaJhJfQFm2PPXG2.

Ripple and in turn, XRP, was also in the news recently after Ripple partner R3’s Corda released a statement that they were planning to further their partnership with credit union-centric CULedger. The press release from the organization stated,

“This will allow credit unions using CULedger’s network to choose from a variety of near-instant, secure and affordable domestic and cross-border payment options to meet theirs and their members’ needs.”

Ripple: XRP struggles amid downbeat Thursday crypto market

Published

on

The third-largest digital currency in the world, XRP, had an encouraging start to yesterday’s session, as its price topped the $0.40 mark in early trading. However, the coin’s spell above $0.40 did not last long. After several hours of struggling to sustain trading at that level, XRP gave in to the pressure and returned to sub-$0.40 levels. The decline accelerated during the afternoon portion of the session, with its price tumbling to an intraday low of $0.373. The digital coin finished the session at $0.376, down from its opening price of $0.397.

Downbeat market

XRP has remained on the defensive in today’s trading, mirroring a wide-spread crypto correction. As a result, the coin fell to a six-day low of $0.367 in the morning. The token’s performance has somewhat improved in more recent trading, which has allowed it to retake the $0.37 level.

Meanwhile, XRP has continued to experience strong market activity, although its trading volume has seen a drop from yesterday. According to data from digital currency tracker Coinmarketcap, around $1.9 billion worth of XRP coins have changed hands over the past 24 hours. The coin’s daily trading volume reached just over $2 billion on Wednesday.

XRP’s current struggles appear to be part of a larger downward correction that has affected most digital coins on the market. Earlier this month, XRP benefited from a strong bullish trend that saw many cryptocurrencies rising to new 2019 highs. XRP’s rally peaked at $0.474, which was reached on May 16, the same day that Bitcoin set its current 2019 high of $8,320.82.

In today’s trading, the XRP price stood at $0.373, as of 14:17 BST. The digital coin has lost 4.6% of its value in the past 24 hours, Coinmarketcap data shows. The coin’s total market cap currently stands at $15.7 billion.
