XRP Price Analysis: XRP Falling Again

XRP Price Analysis: XRP Falling Again

By Dmitriy Gurkovskiy, Chief Analyst at RoboForex

On Friday, October 2nd, the XRP rate is falling, trading at 0.2333 USD. The crypto market is slumping due to the news that President Donald Trump fell prey to the coronavirus: no one knows what to expect, and investors avoid risks “just in case”.

On D1, the technical picture of the Ripple has not changed much: the coin keeps correcting in an uptrend. XRP/USD keeps trading near 50.0% Fibo – thus, it might be accumulating power for breaking away the support level. When the level is overcome, the pair will proceed to 38.2% Fibo and the lower border of the ascending channel. On the MACD2, there is a complete Black Cross, promising further correction. The histogram is still under zero; all the signals together promise further correction to 0.2040 USD.

On H4, the picture is similar: the quotations keep going to the lower border of the ascending channel. The aim of the uptrend is the same as on D1 – 0,3010 USD. The Ripple is trading near 50.0% Fibo. If it is broken away, the pair may head for 38.2% Fibo. The Stochastic has formed a Black Cross in the overbought area, which increases the chances for a correction. The current scenario still presumes a pullback to 0.2040 USD, a bounce off this level, and further development of the uptrend. However, the quotations may still go to 61.8% Fibo without a pullback to 0.2040 USD.

Ripple Labs received a new patent for a protocol that includes smart contracts. According to the patent application, the system can work with smart contracts via so-called “oracles”. In essence, the platform can receive and process information by the conditions of a smart contract.

Ethereum is currently the market leader in working with smart contracts, and the step of Ripple in this direction may deteriorate the leadership. Earlier, Ripple tried to attend to some smart contract issues but finally gave up the contract that caused too much trouble. However, time shows that such functions are demanded.

Simultaneously, the XRP dives deeper and deeper into the world of real finance. A subsidiary of Ripple SBI Holdings takes the coin to the forestage of the Japanese e-sport after signing a contract between SBI e-Sports and VC Trade. The conditions of the agreement allow professional players to get paid in the XRP. The perspectives are huge: in 2019, the revenue of the Japanese e-sport amounted to 56.7 million USD, and by 2023, it is expected to have increased to 142.0 million USD.

Blockchain implementation is only possible through B2B partnerships

Blockchain implementation is only possible through B2B partnerships

Blockchain is one of the most vital technologies in the 21st century and is one thing that most countries have in common. Its emergence has led many experts to believe that it is possible for technology to change the world in a few decades, just as the internet came and changed the world. Although it is still at its early development stages, many companies and countries are employing its use for their processes. The blockchain application seems limitless, as it is used in many processes by varying individuals and institutions. Although the most obvious use of blockchain is in the financial sector - international payments, complex financial products, remittances, and cryptocurrency, it is also used to resolve issues and create new opportunities in defense, supply chain, healthcare, government voting, luxury goods, and management. 

Blockchain advantages for B2B

The role that blockchain plays worldwide is often downplayed. While this statement is true for both companies and users, the technology is a very effective tool in providing business solutions. In addition to the many advantages that come with blockchain, the ones that stand out are security, transparency, accountability, and profitability of B2B ventures.

Unlike B2B, B2C is pretty hard because the customer needs to be educated about the product and the value they may receive from the blockchain. While a business partner would either already know or would be more understanding towards it. A good example is blockchain companies partnering with banks to implement their technology. Online casinos are not left out. They are adopting this technology through their partners as they continue to churn out blockchain-based games. For example, when people find the best Playtech bonuses, it's usually provided through BTC or ETH. Why? Because the games are usually designed to do so.

Blockchain acts as a bank for companies that are involved in the production of goods and services for different companies. Companies use it to send and receive money, accept deposits, sign contracts, and a whole lot more. Many people often either confuse block change to mean just cryptocurrencies or online banks. However, this is not the case. Blockchain is broader than just cryptos and involves many processes that are used differently. The reason why blockchain cannot be considered as an online bank is that even online banks are still powered by central authorities, while blockchain is decentralized.

CTO of ripple tells all on how much XRP owns

CTO of ripple tells all on how much XRP owns

Quick Take

1 minute read

  • David Schwartz, the chief technical officer of the San Francisco-based blockchain company ripple has recently explained how much XRP he owns.
  • Technically, because he owns such a mass sum, it makes him a whale in crypto terms.

David Schwartz, the chief technical officer of the San Francisco-based blockchain company ripple has recently explained how much XRP he owns.

Technically, because he owns such a mass sum, it makes him a whale in crypto terms.

As one of the original developers and designers of the token and XRP Ledger, David revealed that he would leave his job when the price of the token reaches $1.

David did not disclose the exact amount of the token that he owns however, he did say that it was less than 10 million and more than 1 million. 

As a result of his public tweet explaining his portfolio for the token, the community reacted and questioned why he had very little exposure to the token while other founders of the ledger such as Chris Larsen have billions of the token in their possession.

The token for the San Francisco company has been performing quite mildly over the course of this year. Not much has happened in 2020 for the token but who knows what the future will hold. Many believe that 2021 will be the year for XRP but only time will tell.

Earlier this year, David gave even more details on his cryptocurrency portfolio saying that he regretted dumping such huge amounts of bitcoin and ethereum for cheap at the time. However, he did explain that he did this as a part of a “derisking plan“ that he had contact with his wife.

Tyler Winklevoss on BTC: FOMO yet to kick in

Tyler Winklevoss on BTC: FOMO yet to kick in

Quick take

1 minute read

  • One of the brothers of the well-known Winklevoss twins, Tyler Winklevoss has recently said that the spike in bitcoins price that brought it to $18,000 is not yet a FOMO price run. 
  • Speaking in a tweet, Tyler said that the spike in the bitcoins price was due to the steady hands in the overall crypto industry.

One of the brothers of the well-known Winklevoss twins, Tyler Winklevoss has recently said that the spike in bitcoins price that brought it to $18,000 is not yet a FOMO price run. Speaking in a tweet, Tyler said that the spike in the bitcoins price was due to the steady hands in the overall crypto industry. He added that this means many investors are on the sidelines and have yet to get fully involved.

For those that don’t know, FOMO (fear of missing out) is a term used in investments such as cryptocurrency to describe panic buying. When the price of bitcoin starts to rise, many people panic buying due to a fear of missing out.

Specifically, Tyler highlights the stable and steady search term popularity on Google for bitcoin indicating that a spike in Google searches for the leading crypto coin would be a big sign of FOMO kicking in but this has yet to happen.

If you take a look at the Google searches for bitcoin over the past year, it will indicate that the highest it has ever reached was in May this year when the coin hit a $10,000 for the second time in 2020. Since May, there have been numerous prices with fluctuations bringing the price down and up consistently.

Over the course of this year alone, bitcoin has been able to surpass numerous price key resistance levels. Many people believe that the coin is well on its way to $20,000 by the end of the year. Furthermore, institutional investment has been on the rise massively this year with bitcoin being on many corporate balance sheets. This has helped adoption as more people are getting involved with the industry on a daily basis.

Ideaology's IEO Ushers the Launch of Blockchain Platform for Innovators

Ideaology's IEO Ushers the Launch of Blockchain Platform for Innovators

DUBAI, UAE - Ideaology is proud to announce its IDEA token pre-sale on December 1, 2020. The pre-sale event is an initial exchange offering (IEO) on P2PB2B exchange. Users will have a chance to purchase IDEA tokens with a 22% discount before the IDEA token public sale.

Ideaology aims to be the “Biggest Blockchain Ecosystem in 2021 and beyond''. Along with the pre-sale launch, Ideaology’s Active IDEA platform will have its beta launch on December 1, 2020 as well. The very existence of Ideaology is a testament to how the model it’s promoting works. With its upcoming IEO and subsequent launch on crypto exchanges, Ideaology’s Active IDEA aims to become the first blockchain-powered platform to pave the way for users to collaborate on promising blockchain projects while investing in these ventures as well. 

“Freelancers don’t necessarily work on online freelance platforms, and clients or companies don’t necessarily look for talents on those websites. Many of them are running their independent business from their websites or agencies, and looking for clients via advertisements, email marketing, leads generation, and other techniques. This is why we need to ask the question: why would a freelancer choose a website like Upwork, Fiverr, or Freelancer to sell his services when they can be part of a platform where they can offer their expertise and services on a platform specifically created for their exposure and convenience?” ,said Khaled Alkalbani, Founder and CEO at Ideaology. 

Whether you are an investor looking for the right project to pour your resources on, a business developer that needs funding to start his empire, or a digital nomad looking for a platform where you can provide meaningful services and earn, Active IDEA strives to be the go-to platform for all online professionals. 

Within the Active IDEA platform, members can collaborate as they invest and find projects that they have passion for. Members of the Ideaology community will be enabled to launch a startup through crowdfunding, but at the same time, will also have the opportunity to work with startups.The Ideaology team calls this whole process “collabvesting” - where Active IDEA users can invest in startups while also giving startups and freelancers to collaborate on projects.

“We believe that our IEO launch with P2PB2B enables Ideaology supporters and P2PB2B users to have a smooth and convenient experience in participating in our pre-sale for the IDEA token. We trust that P2PB2B will also offer a great IDEA token pre-sale experience for everyone interested to purchase IDEA tokens at an early stage.”, said Amar Kovacevic, Co-Founder and CTO at Ideaology.

By establishing a platform where online professionals can start collabvesting, and jumpstarting it with a pre-sale of their IDEA token, Ideaology just became one of the most promising blockchain companies in 2021 and beyond.
