Xpring has spent over $500 million in over 20 companies. Their focus is to “build the best crypto infrastructure through contributions to open source crypto protocols such as the XRP Ledger and InterLedger projects.” Even so, XRP is under pressure and down 15.1 percent week-to-date.
Adoption is the only catalyst that will turbo-charge blockchain related development. Standing to reap enormous benefits is Ripple. Armed with three innovative solutions, progress is excellent. Already, more than 200 global banks and financial institutions leverage the RippleNet, a suite of which xCurrent is popular.
However, the real game changer is the upgrade to xCurrent version 4, which has an option for xRapid. The insistence on xRapid is of prime importance for XRP holders. It uses XRP as a medium of exchange, and the more the adoption, the higher the demand the prices will respond accordingly.
Launched during the SWELL Conference of 2018, the conversion is low. The major obstacle is regulation and concerns about the level of centralization. Ripple remains to be the largest holder of the coin, using the proceeds to fund infrastructure development and innovation. Through Xpring, a recent report shows that Ripple has spent more than $500 million on different companies. Some of them include Coil, Kava Labs, and Forte.
The gap between ETH and XRP is widening. At the time of press, XRP is down 15.1 percent in the last week and pretty stable in the past 24 hours. Although XRP is bullish and within a break out pattern against the USD, there are hints of weakness.
All the same, traders will maintain a positive outlook unless there is a breach below the 40 cents floor. Should bears press lower, the short to medium term trajectory of the coin will very much depend on the reaction at 34 cents and importantly 30 cents.
Regardless, there is an opportunity for aggressive traders, buying the dips with targets at 60 cents or higher. However, with stops at 34 cents, any destabilization forcing XRP to crumble will force their exit from this trade.
Meanwhile, the best strategy for risk-averse traders is to wait for a clear signal. That means a breach and close above 50 cents. Such a move will usher in buyers aiming at 80 cents while simultaneously confirming the bias of this trade plan.
In the short-term, June 27 bear candlestick leads this trade plan. Spelling high sell pressure, the bar has high trading volumes of 102 million.
Therefore, for trend continuation, buyers must not only erase losses of late last week, but behind their revival, there must be high participation, exceeding 102 million, propelling prices above 50 cents.

Ripple’s Optimism: 0 Million Spend On XRP Use Case Development
While crypto fanatics have been buzzing with news about bitcoin price surges and Facebook’s introduction of its digital currency libra, the Bitcoin 2019 conference brought together some of the most significant people in the BTC community for a two-day event to discuss the current and future state of Bitcoin.
These two crypto scientists are particularly notable because they were directly cited by Satoshi Nakamoto in the Bitcoin white paper. At Bitcoin 2019, they came together for a discussion with Bitcoin YouTuber Naomi Brockwell about their contributions to the creation of Bitcoin and where they foresee the original cryptocurrency going in the years to come.
Stornetta co-authored three papers cited in Bitcoin’s white paper and was one of the first people working on creating a system that did not require people to trust a central authority. In the early days of Bitcoin, Stornetta realized there was a problem with recording transactions, so he suggested the creation of immutable records in order to track all bitcoin transactions.
“We’re going to not be able to know the difference between an old bit and a new bit, and all of the world’s records are going to be in bits, and that’s going to create a crisis of credibility,” as Stornetta described the problem during his conference panel.
According to Stornetta, he and Stuart Haber, who is also credited with the creation of blockchain technology, were struggling to solve the problem, so they decided to create a publication that would prove it is impossible to build an immutable record without a central authority. In writing it, Stornetta said they were able to figure out how they could build an immutable record with the use of a blockchain.
In 1997, Adam Back introduced Hashcash, a “proof-of-work” system that would help users of the internet detect and avoid spam email. Hashcash worked to ensure users were only accepting emails from others who provided proof that an effort was made to send the email.
The “proof-of-work” concept was carried over into the world of Bitcoin to enable competitive mining of blocks. By using a trial-and-error method to mine bitcoin, miners that are able to verify proof of their work and successfully mine a block are rewarded with bitcoin as payment.
“Satoshi made use of the hashcash idea to create the mining,” Stornetta said. “It’s easy to see in hindsight huge incentives were needed to kickstart (bitcoin).”
For Stornetta, the future of Bitcoin is broad and diverse. Stornetta told the audience at the conference that he is a “fundamental believer” in crypto technologies and their ability to level the playing field.
“I am not a crypto anarchist, but I certainly am a crypto libertarian, and I think we are going to get the world that we want and that we deserve, we just need to find a path that leads from A to B,” Stornetta said.
Stornetta said he believes distributed ledger technologies will continue to advance and diversify in the future, and that he sees a potential for other currencies besides bitcoin to flourish.
“It doesn’t all just have to be about money, of course,” Stornetta said to the crowd. “I’m a big fan of the distributed ledger and how that can create quantization and tokenization of assets … I just think we’re gonna see such a broadening and diversification of this.”
Back also touched on the quick development of cryptocurrency technologies and the challenges of keeping up with the pace of new ideas and implementations of them, even for technical people. Back discussed how there are still areas of innovation that have yet to be realized. He further noted that blockchain and bearer electronic cash are new building blocks that have implications with smart contracts.
“Basically, it’s like picking up a new programming language with a new paradigm, and it takes a lot of people to natively understand it and reach the conclusion of what kind of conclusions you can build with it,” Back said.
Back mentioned the development of the Lightning Network and state chains to further his point about how advancements within crypto technology are being made at a rapid rate. He also discussed his reasoning for why multiple cryptocurrencies may not be a necessity in the long run.
“In terms of coins, I tend to view it as sort of like TCP/IP — that there’s one interoperable standard,” Back said. “Any kind of innovation can be adopted in layers or, ultimately, people can import Bitcoin’s UTXO set to another data structure if a new data structure is found.”
