With the bears having their saying for first half of the year, crypto-investors are hoping the most out of the second part of 2018 and hopefully gain will be witnessed.
Ripple For the Change
Being part of the cryptocurrency community for a longer time, make you forget for the near term changes in prices while tending towards the longer-term ideas. That is why much curiosity is around the startup Ripple, its token XRP and the blockchain based financial solutions the team is offering that aim to shake the global-cross border transactions how we know them.
The crystal clear goal of the team behind Ripple is to change one industry for the better. Much like Amazon, in its time when it wanted to change trading much faster and user friendly with delivery option, that is what Ripple is attempting to do for the cross-border transactions.
Furthermore, Ripple is aiming to solve real-life problems, and they are inventive by offering a solution to real-life problems through its xRapid. Ripple’s xRapid will use its token, XRP, to achieve this feat.
Ripple – Founder
Brad Garlinghouse was recently interviewed by CNBC at the recent Money 20/20 event in Amsterdam. Ethereum World News had earlier mentioned the manner in which Ripple (XRP) would more or less defeat Bitcoin (BTC) in the future, as an offshoot opinion piece of Mr. Garlinghouse’s comments during the same interview.
Brad Garlinghouse was noted as saying that there is a list of major banks in line to use the xRapid platform by the end of this year; with dozens expected to be doing so by next year. He had this to say about xRapid:
By the end of this year, major banks will use xRapid as a liquidity tool. By the end of next year, I would certainly hope that we will see…in the order of magnitude…of dozens. But we also need to continue to grow that ecosystem…grow the liquidity.
Ripple – Swift
The Society for Wordwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication or SWIFT is around and close the same for over 40 years. Created in Brussels, Belgium 1973. It has done its part of allowing cross-border transactions to happen, but with no change of development. That is why a new, best be, blockchain solution is needed to be implemented.
With Ripple introducing the xRapid solution to transfer the XRP token to source liquidity, various existing issues would be solved. The whole process could take only 3 sec per transaction.
In the long term objective, with the prices hitting rock-bottom right around now it could be best to step in. However, as usual trade safely and do not overtrade.
