Ripple’s XRP might conquer the cryptoverse in the third quarter of the year
As far as I can remember, this year has been a roller coaster for the crypto market. The prices of the major cryptos have been going up and down the entire time, and this is a worrying situation for many of the crypto investors and enthusiasts that don’t know exactly what to expect from the many existing tokens regarding price behavior.
In this sense, the third quarter of the year may be the perfect occasion for some of the virtual coins to rise to the top and set a new mark in their history, and that is exactly what we know for a fact that it might happen with Ripple (XRP). Stay with me here and let’s discover the main reasons behind the asseveration.
The XRP struggle this year
Despite the market volatility, the XRP token has been dealing with some other problems that have put some friction to its development. Concerning this, it’s imperative to mention the ‘security’ issues that the company has faced in the last months. Ripple has been under review by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) considering the way the XRP token was set; there were big chances that the token could be labeled as security.
Although this has brought a lot of concern for both the community and the company, we need to remember that is not actually a verdict, instead, it can be just a caution in order for the company to change what it needed to be changed, and that’s exactly what Ripple has been doing ever since.
Let’s recall that Ethereum itself was labeled as a security by the SEC at some point and that is not precisely the case right now, so we all can rest calm as Ripple is taking care of the situation.
Concerning the decentralization issues that allegedly Ripple has, the Chief Technology Officer of the company, David Schwartz, has declared that the XRP ledger is as decentralized as Bitcoin and Ethereum if not more.
In fact, mathematically speaking it was proved that Bitcoin is mainly controlled by Bitmain and the early adopters of Ethereum mine both Ethereum and Bitcoin, so, to say the least, Ethereum is more centralized than XRP is.
The PoW system that runs on both the Ethereum and Bitcoin platforms was exalted despite the technical failures described by the CTO, and the truth is that miners can control the system. On the other hand, the speedy network of Ripple is considered by Weiss Ratings as “the fastest digital asset to transfer funds between exchanges,” and if we consider the low price of the crypto, this would be a tremendous opportunity to reach XRP.
So it is true, Ripple was warned that their coin was set as a security, but with all of the efforts that the company has put to change this, may have given results already.
September could be the month of XRP
It results evident that Ripple was quiet for a lot of time, but as the CEO himself, Brad Garlinghouse has stated, a lot of things will happen in September for Ripple. In his words,
“One of the things I will tease for a future announcement within the Q3 market report, which we always share… Where we see institutional participation in buying XRP, Q3 will definitely be a record of institutional participation in buying and showing interest in holding XRP.”
As it seems, we can all expect a significant wave of institutional investors appearing in the third quarter. In fact, the last thing we knew about a massive adoption of the XRP token was when Garlinhouse said that he wouldn’t say anything further until Ripple would manage to make more than 200 partnerships, and we can be sure that this is precisely the time. XRP has now more than 200 connections, but they cannot reveal their names because of non-disclosure agreements.
In addition to this, it was known that the XRP token had increased its volume in a significant manner. However, this hasn’t been showing up in its price the way it should, and the reason why those who buy the token are not creating an impact in the price is just that, they don’t use a regular exchange, so instead, what they use is OTC. This fact may actually change as it is speculated that Binance and XRP are collaborating already, and the crypto will appear listed very soon.
As August reaches to an end, September might bring great things for XRP and the market. Let’s all stay tuned, and Ripple as a company will surprise us all with new development, partnerships, and a brand-new behavior of its token, XRP.
