XRP: Coin with Great Potential
2021-09-07 • Updated
What is XRP?
XRP is the cryptocurrency based on Ripple, which is a blockchain-based digital payment network and protocol owned by Ripple Labs Inc.
Ripple is a digital payment network for financial transactions. It was created in 2012 by Chris Larsen and Jed McCaleb. Ripple's main process is a payment settlement asset exchange and remittance system, like the SWIFT system for international money and security transfers, which is used by banks and financial middlemen dealing across currencies.
Ripple operates on an open-source and peer-to-peer decentralized platform that allows a seamless transfer of money in any form, whether it's dollars, yen, euros, or cryptocurrencies, like Litecoin or Bitcoin. Ripple is a global payments network and counts major banks and financial services amongst its customers. XRP coin is used in its products to facilitate quick conversion between different currencies.
Ripple vs SEC
When the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed its bombshell lawsuit against cryptocurrency innovator Ripple Labs in December 2020, it didn’t expect blowback. SEC claimed that Ripple Labs Inc. mislead investors about its XRP cryptocurrency. The SEC sued Ripple, co-founder Christian Larsen and Chief Executive Officer Bradley Garlinghouse in a “vacuum” that allowed them to sell XRP into a market with the limited information they chose to share. The agency alleges that the two men personally profited by about $600 million and ignored legal advice that the cryptocurrency could be considered an investment contract and therefore a security. It accused them of selling the virtual tokens without registering them as such.
SEC's main goal is to take control over the XRP coin and recognize it as a security. This process can affect the whole crypto market that’s why the community is watching it closely as Ripple victory would lead to a huge coin pump and the whole crypto market bullish sentiment.
XRP broke through the resistance line and facing new highs. Right now it is trading under two big resistance levels of $1.3 and $1.34. As soon as the price breaks through $1.34 a long trade might be opened. Targets are $1.45 and $1.6.
On the other hand, if Bitcoin reverses the $1.05 support level should be watched. In case XRP breaks it thought the price will drop immediately to $0.9 and $0.8.
Starting on December 3 cryptocurrency crash caused panic on the market. Further Bitcoin movements are foggy, but we can manage to peek behind the crypto market’s curtains and figure out what to do.
Some cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin or Ethereum, are useful and bring real value to the world.
