XRP Payments To Be Sent To Content Creators Via New Coil Project

The internet is a base for content. Information is shared via content that is placed online via writers, creatives and general content creation, though often their efforts do go unrewarded. This is where Coil comes in, a new project that uses a subscription service for readers and viewers to pay and reward content creators on various websites. Coil wants to monetise the web to create an economy that ensures content creators are paid for their efforts, in a secure and fair manner. How does Coil work? Coil is an external subscription, so doesn’t work with the websites directly, instead users install Coil and pay a subscription, this subscription is then used to send money to the content creators on the supported websites that have been viewed by the user. Such supported websites include YouT...

Ripple (XRP) Still Likely To Close The Week In Green

Ripple (XRP) investors have seen some massive returns on investment these past few weeks but there are reasons to believe that this rally is not over yet. Ripple (XRP) had to retrace after an aggressive rise from $0.30 to $0.80. The above hourly chart for XRP/USD shows that the price has now entered into a major bull flag. This is a very bullish development for Ripple (XRP) which could push the price back above $0.80 in the days ahead. The likelihood of a further price retracement seems low at this point but even if it did break, the price would find a strong support atop the 200 EMA. Ripple (XRP) has been on a roll since uncertainty surrounding Bitcoin (BTC) ETF decision became clear. The price has now seen a major boost which resembles the typical trading pattern of Ripple (XRP) during i...

Is XRP Becoming A Serious Investment?

XRP, the native token to the Ripple project is often seen as a less serious investment opportunity. Limits within the build, the market cap and the design of XRP mean that as an investment opportunity, it is unlikely to break a value of over $10.00. Therefore, many investors don’t see XRP as a viable investment opportunity, as simply put, in order to get a huge return on your XRP investment, you need to put a lot of money into it from the start. This doesn’t make XRP a bad cryptocurrency, actually it’s probably a good thing. By being less volatile and by holding a steady value, XRP is more serious as a project for an adoptive cryptocurrency future. It’s something that has been designed to assist banks and therefore, it needs to be something the banks can handle with ease. Until recently th...

Ripple (XRP) Rally Slows Down After Facing Resistance At 200 Day EMA

Ripple (XRP) had a long streak of bullish rallies these past few days as the price rallied straight through strong resistances from $0.25 to $0.50 in matter of just four days! That is a 100% increase in a period of four days. This rally is even more astounding when you consider that the rest of market is still at a standstill and there is no clear direction. Ripple (XRP) investors on the other hands seem to be very clear about where the market is headed next. This is why many in the crypto community believe that Ripple (XRP) might just have kicked off the altcoin rally or it might be the most elaborate bull trap we have ever seen. Technically, Ripple (XRP) is not in the clear yet. The price has had an impressive rally but the 200 Day EMA resistance will be a tough one to break. The third d...

Is XRP Considered To Be The Next Bitcoin?

With XRP flying high this week, we want to explore some theories that point towards XRP being the next Bitcoin. Now I do have to define what I mean by this a little more clearly here – I’m not suggesting that XRP is going to become the next Bitcoin by value, or by use, however I am considering ideas that suggest XRP could become the next cultural icon as people simply get tired of Bitcoin. Bitcoin as we know was the original cryptocurrency. Designed with this new technology, the blockchain, Bitcoin promised to disrupt the finance world and give people control of their finances. Now of course, since then Bitcoin has seen a slightly capitalised repurposing, either way though, Bitcoin is rife, as is its technology. Culturally, Bitcoin is an icon, a symbol of change and a movement spearh...

Ripple (XRP) Has Already Kicked Off The Altcoin Rally

Ripple (XRP) has already kicked off the altcoin rally. It does come as a surprise considering the change of sentiment that Ripple (XRP) has magically achieved over the past few weeks. As always, the team behind Ripple (XRP) shows a glimpse of its talent. News of partnerships with more financial institutions has sent the price on a bullish spree these past few days. While some may think it is not sustainable and that the price may fall down if Bitcoin (BTC) trade sideways, we believe that is not the case. Bitcoin (BTC) can be expected to remain sluggish or trade sideways for the entire period this altcoin rally lasts. Cryptocurrencies like Ripple (XRP) have had extensive corrections and have now reached their all time lows against Bitcoin (BTC). Altcoins have long been on the verge of a tre...

Here’s What’s Caused XRP To Skyrocket This Week

 XRP has flown upwards this week, after various news reports and positive announcements. For the first time in quite a long time, XRP seems to have embarked on an upswing. Of course, the climb was limited by the overarching negative trend of the markets, but this didn’t stop XRP moving from a low of $0.255, up to a weekly high of $0.333. By all accounts, this week’s high is the highest figure recorded for XRP since the very start of September. Why has XRP taken off again? There have been a number of news pieces and announcements that have had a very positive impact on the value of XRP, namely one announcement that suggests a full, commercial scale roll out of Ripple’s xRapid is set to hit us within the next two months. This is significant, as it will finally allow large financial in...

XRP, ADA And XLM Find Promising New Listing

New exchange listings are always good news. By opening out to new exchanges, cryptocurrencies are opened up to new customers and new trading directions, therefore, it is often met with excitement when new tokens are listed on established exchanges. Moreover and possibly even more importantly, exchanges also benefit from these new listings, bringing new customers onto their platform and of course, an increase in trading volume, which means money for them and of course, money for everyone else. OKCoin have recently announced the listing of five major cryptocurrencies, Ripple’s XRP, Cardano’s ADA, Stellar’s XLM, ZCash and 0x. The US based exchange will allow crypto to crypto exchanges made between these tokens and their other listings across the country, but are also allowing special access t...

Anticipation For xRapid Is Battering XRP Upwards With A 20% Gain Overnight

If you’re not watching the markets at the moment (we can’t blame you, everything is super tame at the moment) then you might not have noticed that XRP has shot upwards, up 20.39% from yesterday at the time of writing, with no sign of letting up. At the time of writing, XRP is valued at $0.330. It’s still a super low value for XRP, but regardless of this, it’s making incredible progression and for the first time in a while, and is now comfortably within the $0.30 range. The reason for this spike is the recent ‘leak’ of a pending xRapid release date. Now, we don’t know when xRapid will be fully rolled out, but we do know that Ripple are planning on releasing xRapid, to business customers within the next two months. If you think XRP is looking excited now, wait until xRapid is actually realis...

Ripple’s xRapid Will See Commercial Roll Out In The Next 60 Days

xRapid is one of the trio of Ripple technologies that is now starting to hit headlines. As it stands, xRapid is currently in test phase and is being used by a number of companies as a payment transfer solution. As it stands, no major banks are using or testing xRapid, though it is expected that now the product is almost complete, major banks will jump on board in the next few months, in time with the full roll out of xRapid. As it stands, many banks are currently using xCurrent, another of the Ripple technologies, therefore, a switch over to the more enhanced xRapid should be quick and easy. What is xRapid? According to Ripple: “xRapid is for payment providers and other financial institutions who want to minimize liquidity costs while improving their customer experience. Because payments i...

Stolen XRP: Lack Of Laws Stop FBI And Korea From Recovering $800K

The U.S. FBI and law enforcement in South Korea and Japan have arrested two people in connection to phishing scam that stole $800,000 worth of Ripple (CRYPTO: XRP) tokens in a joint operation reported last week. A Japanese suspect is still at large. The suspects victimized 24 Korean and 37 Japanese investors by replicating a cryptocurrency exchange website. They created a fake but resembling email account and warned users that their money had been frozen. Users then clicked on a hyperlink and entered login information that the alleged scammers used to access the real exchange. The suspects transferred $800,000 worth of XRP to a digital wallet they controlled. The FBI became involved presumably because Ripple is based in San Francisco, Calif. The alleged scammers hired a programmer and paid...
