xRapid Testing Is Complete, XRP Based Platform Is Ready To Roll

After a very heavy testing period, Ripple’s xRapid now seems to be in a position to see a full mass roll out, meaning the technology will become available to any company looking to explore a real-time settlement solution. As a software package powered by XRP, xRapid has made a name for itself through completing testing periods with companies such as MoneyGram, Western Union and SBI Virtual Currencies. Now, with xRapid almost set to make a full launch, we expect to see an awful lot of other companies jump on board, something which in turn will do great things for both the adoption of XRP and Ripple’s technologies. So, what now? Further testing is expected over the next four months, however these tests have been designed to inform the end product, meaning over this time, xRapid is going to e...

Is Roger Ver A Fraudster? Many Still Think So

Bitcoin Jesus and Bitcoin Cash representative, Roger Ver, has been coined as a fraudster once again as a result of his and his websites move to try and deceive new investors into thinking Bitcoin Cash is the real Bitcoin.

TokenPay Lash Out At Bitcoin Cash; ‘It’s Slow And Expensive’

TokenPay have been on fire recently, making the most of their social media pages to literally lay into their rivals. It’s brave, but if they think they are the best, they might as well try and flaunt it right? After flogging XRP and NEO very recently, TokenPay have now decided to tap into the Bitcoin debate. Not holding back, TokenPay refer to Bitcoin Cash as slow and expensive, but even more insultingly to the Bitcoin Cash community, TokenPay also seem to disregard Bitcoin Cash and hint that in their eyes, Bitcoin Core is the original and real Bitcoin. It’s so complicated, it’s like a family feud behind the scenes at a wedding, one of those feuds that we’re better off keeping out of. Either way, TokenPay aren’t taking any prisoners. According to Ethereum World News, TokenPay have said the...

Cardano (ADA) Enters Strong Bear Trend, Price Unlikely To Break Above $0.11 Before September

Cardano (ADA) is now down more than 90% since its all time high but that has not stopped it from entering a new bear trend. The price just broke below the 21 EMA on the 4H chart for ADA/USD above. Having already broken below the 50 EMA, Cardano (ADA) was expected to find support at the 21 EMA but the price failed to hold its ground and broke below it. Furthermore, the 21 EMA has now become a strong resistance for Cardano (ADA) which means the RSI is likely to break out of the falling wedge at this point. If the RSI breaks out of the falling wedge at this point, it would give a green light to the bears to take the price further down. The price of Cardano (ADA) entered a triangle on August 6, the upper limit of which has served as additional temporary resistance. The price has now been rejec...

Not Everyone Is Happy With TRON’s Acquisition Of BitTorrent

It’s hardly news now, but yes, TRON bought BitTorrent, one of the worlds biggest networks for peer to peer sharing, giving TRON access to a huge customer base and also fulfilling Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision of a crypto future that had engagement within such an application. Yes, Nakamoto is said to have even referenced BitTorrent at one point. With the majority of the crypto community optimistic about this move, many of us have spent a lot of time looking at how the future for TRON now looks with BitTorrent in its portfolio. We wondered how much control Justin Sun, the founder of TRON and the now owner of BitTorrent would have. With these recent revelations it seems that indeed, Sun is in charge here after reports suggest that Bram Cohen, the inventor of BitTorrent, has quietly stepped down f...
