Fast Bullish Run Predicted for XRP, Will The Currency Hit $1 Before End Of The Year?

Published

on

Ripple’s XRP is still the third largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization and has been at the position for a while now. XRP’s market cap sits pretty at almost $17 billion beating BCH at the fourth position by almost $10 billion. However, with all these figures, XRP hasn’t increased as significantly as Ether or even Bitcoin.

Some Specifics

Over the last week, three of the top four cryptos have gained notably. Bitcoin (BTC) gained about 23% and Ether (ETH) gained 17%. Even Bitcoin Cash (BCH) which has a much lower market cap, gained 18% performing better than ETH. XRP however, in the same period, only did 2%. Going further back to a period spanning the last six months, other assets still did much better than XRP which dropped 41% in that period.

In the past, there have been speculations that XRP was experiencing this problem because there is a lot more competition now that the coin has ever experienced. Stellar Lumens (XLM) has been noted as an asset that’s very similar to XRP and there are even a few rumors that some XRP investors might be looking to jump ship.

What’s Next for XRP?

According to David Gokhshtein a crypto enthusiast and founder of eponymous crypto-forward magazine called Gokhshtein, there is much hope for the asset. Gokhshtein, who is also a member of the Forbes Finance Council, has said in a tweet that XRP would shoot up very quickly. His very optimistic tweet said:

 

He further added as he interacted with other users, a prediction for a bullish rally soon. According to him, there will be a “good comeback from $XRP as the Bullrun for the altcoins starts in a few days from now.”

Thinking that there’s hope might not be a far-fetched because Ripple is doing a lot to push XRP. There’s a lot of collaboration Ripple has with many firms globally, through xRapid. At the moment, Ripple is in continuous collaboration with more than 200 of them.

Fast Bullish Run Predicted for XRP, Will The Currency Hit $1 Before End Of The Year?

At Press time, XRP has successfully emerged as the top best-performing cryptocurrency, currently soaring over 22% and looks set to break out of the $0.3 Price Level.

Ripple executive elected to United States Faster Payment Council’s Board of Directors

Published

on

Pat Thelen, Ripple’s VP of Strategic Accounts, has been recently appointed as one of U.S Faster Payment Council’s (FPC) directors. He was also among the first elected board members of the Council. The list of the selected members was out on Monday and Thelen was chosen from a list of people in the larger technological sector industry. Thelen will be serving a one year term.

The appointment of the directors, including Thelen, was met with a lot of positive reaction online. This enthusiasm was shared by the Council itself, whose Executive Director and interim board Chairman, Kevin Christensen, said“The new board represents the industry’s inclusiveness which is an integral part of the organization.”

FPC is leading the way for presenting avenues for faster payment methods. Hence, Thelen and other representatives on the Council are expected to take greater initiative in fulfilling the Council’s objectives. Ripple was created for a similar goal, with XRP born to do transactions at a faster speed than what Bitcoin, or any other present-day payment settlement system, is doing.

With Pat Thelen becoming a part of the FPC, many doors and opportunities are now open to Ripple, XRP and companies in the field of making global payment settlement more secure, quicker and more accessible for a diverse set of consumers. With CEO Brad Garlinghouse claiming that he did not expect banks and governments to be “obliterated by new technologies,” Ripple’s work within the FPC may accelerate its goal to reduce the friction in global commerce.

With Ripple now as a part of FPC, it has also opened doors for other cryptocurrencies as well. The FPC is a newly-formed organization, one that aims to provide a platform for Americans to do transactions in a safe, instant and cost-effective manner.

The founder of Gokhshtein Magazine, David Gokhshtein is a very big XRP supporter and thinks that Ripple is placing themselves in the perfect position to infiltrate the international financial system.

Banks across the world are toying with the idea of creating their own cryptocurrencies. These bank-backed stablecoins would act as intermediaries between fiat and crypto for institutions and some individuals.

According to Gokhshtein, as these financial giants wade into the crypto waters, they’re going to find to be easier, cost-effective and more efficient to use the Ripple-built infrastructure.

Gokhshtein has advised his followers that banks and other big financial institutions will not allow themselves to become obsolete. These more than powerful firms will get used to the current financial season, so to speak and maybe crypto will become a hot topic soon.

“Bottom line: banks aren’t going to fade out. they will always find a way to adapt to the current environment. That being said; @ripple has the perfect system in place for them and that’s why most of them are teaming with them.”

In fact, Ripple is already helping people and companies to send money across the globe in a more effective way.

Brad Garlinghouse and the rest of the team at Ripple are excited about Ripple has been experiencing. The Swiss National Bank Conference Garlinghouse explained the impact Ripple’s xRapid can bring to people and businesses across the world.

“People are getting liquidity th

at exists in the marketplace in local regions between XRP and the Philippine peso, XRP and the Argentine peso, XRP and the Brazilian real. And it’s tapping into that liquidity that exists in the marketplace.”

With more institutions a starting to love Ripple for similar reasons to Gokhshtein’s tweets, adoption is being pushed in a way it has never been before.
