Ripple’s David Schwartz defends XRP against BTC’s ‘mediocre finality and censorship resistance’

The launch of cryptocurrencies from mainstream institutions has been the norm of the digital assets industry for some time now and the Mark Zuckerberg-led Facebook’s Global Coin has been front and center with regards to that. A recent article by Yahoo Finance that stated Facebook’s GlobalCoin would  “annihilate Ripple” was doing the rounds on Twitter and even caught the eye of Ripple’s Chief Technology Officer, David Schwartz.
The article quoted the words of ‘Bitcoin expert’ Max Keiser who had claimed that the Facebook global stablecoin obviates the need for hundreds of altcoins ‘including XRP’ and that the altcoin apocalypse was high. To this, Schwartz retorted:
“I love opinions about XRP that don’t show any evidence of having any understanding of XRP. This is just bitcoin minimalist thinking that there’s bitcoin and everything else.”
This comment led to an all-out debate between Schwartz and Noryn SYra, a cryptocurrency enthusiast, who wanted Schwartz to admit that  Ripple was a permissioned system, a statement denied by the Ripple official. The debate continued when Syra claimed that validators have to choose who to put on the Unique Node List and if a user was not on someone’s UNL then the ‘validator does not mean anything’. Schwartz replied:
“I don’t see how you can square that fact with the fact that there is no way to tell whether your validator is on someone else’s UNL or not and the system works precisely the same whether it is or isn’t.”
Ripple’s ‘trillion dollar man’ continued:
“Think of it like mining except you don’t get rewarded and can’t censor. Why does it matter who is doing or not doing it at that point. It’s permission … to what?”
The computer scientist further pointed out that the one problem that users cannot solve with the public state was ordering valid transactions received at about the same time. He added that no one really cared about that properly as long as it worked unhindered. David Schwarz concluded the Twitter thread by stating:
“Bitcoin costs millions of dollars a day to solve this problem and it gets mediocre finality and mediocre censorship resistance. We solve it for nearly nothing with better finality and censorship resistance. You respond that you need “permission” to have no affect on the network.”

Litecoin [LTC], XRP prices soar as Bitcoin SV [BSV] falls in the face of major correction

Litecoin, the fifth largest cryptocurrency in the world, pumped by approximately 6% while the third largest cryptocurrency, XRP, pumped by ~4% over the last 24 hours. Bitcoin SV, the so-called “real Bitcoin,” had however collapsed by 8.26% over the same time period.
The rest of the top 10 cryptocurrencies were coping badly. Bitcoin [BTC] was recovering from a 6% dip yesterday, which explained the price movement of most other cryptocurrencies.
Source: TradingView
Litecoin, as seen in the chart above, had broken out of an ascending triangle on June 07 at 01:30 IST. The resultant breakout pushed the price of Litecoin from $103 to a maximum of $112. However, the price at press time was $111.42, after pumping by approximately 8% in less than 3 hours.
XRP’s price movement was a little different than that of Litecoin’s. It was probably caused by the FUD/rumor surrounding Ripple and Money Gram. The rumor was that Ripple had acquired Money Gram. The speculation of this may have contributed to XRP’s price pumping from $0.39408 to $0.4270, which is an 8% rise in less than 2 hours.
Source: TradingView
The price of XRP has started consolidating since then, and was moving in a sideways fashion, at press time. The price of XRP, at press time, was $0.4284 and it had a market cap of $17.7 billion.
Bitcoin SV saw some serious pumps recently, pushing the coin to become one of the top 10 cryptocurrencies on the charts. The price of BSV, at press time, was $193 and the coin had a market cap of $3.4 billion.
Source: TradingView
The price of BSV had fallen by 8.26%, as seen on CoinMarketCap. However, BSV has been collapsing since June 5. Starting from $232, it shrunk by 22% and dropped to $182. However, BSV has since started to recover.
Tezos, the 17th largest cryptocurrency, pumped by a massive 13.50% over the last 24 hours, which is the highest pump in the top 20 coins.

Ripple (XRP) Price Showing Bullish Signs: Look For Break Above $0.44

Ripple price started a decent recovery from the $0.3840 support area against the US dollar.
The price traded above the $0.4000 resistance and it is currently showing positive signs.
There was a break above a connecting bearish trend line with resistance at $0.4010 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
The pair is currently trading above the $0.4150 resistance and it could continue higher in the near term.

Ripple price is showing positive signs against the US Dollar and bitcoin. XRP could continue to climb higher once it clears the key $0.4250 resistance area in the coming sessions.
Ripple Price Analysis
After a strong downward move, ripple price found support near the $0.3840 area against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair traded as low as $0.3837 and recently started an upside correction. It recovered above the $0.3950 resistance to move into a short term bullish zone. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.4653 high to $0.3837 low. There was a close above the $0.4000 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Moreover, there was a break above a connecting bearish trend line with resistance at $0.4010 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair is now trading above the $0.4150 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA. On the upside, an immediate resistance is near the $0.4250. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.4653 high to $0.3837 low seems to be acting as a strong resistance. If there is an upside break above $0.4250, the price could continue to rise in the near term.
The next key resistance area is near the $0.4340 level. It represents the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $0.4653 high to $0.3837 low. A successful break above the $0.4340 resistance might start a strong upward move above $0.4400. In the mentioned bullish case, the price could even trade towards the $0.4500 level. On the downside, an initial support is near the $0.4150 level. If there is a downside break below $0.4150, the price might retest the $0.4000 support area.

Looking at the chart, ripple price is showing a lot of positive signs above the $0.4150 level and the 100 hourly SMA. Therefore, there are chances of more upsides above $0.4340 and $0.4400 in the coming sessions.
Technical Indicators

Brandt Predicts Bullish Litecoin [LTC] and XRP, but Greenspan Suspects Pump and Dump on XRP

Bitcoin tested lows below $7500 late on 6th June 2019 as the bearish moment accentuated temporarily. However, XRP and Litecoin [BTC] continued to trade in the green. Litecoin [LTC] and XRP were two of the top gainers from the day with 5.52% and 3.7% rise respectively. The price of Litecoin [LTC] at 3: 30 hours UTC on 7th June 2019 is $110; that of XRP is $0.42.
Litecoin’s recent surge can be attributed to the halving event that is 60 days apart from today. The mining reward for Litecoin [LTC] will reduce from 25 to 12.5 after that event. Therefore, the expected decrease in supply is seen as a precursor to a rise in price.
Peter Brandt, chart analyst, and trader tweeted,
“1. $LTCBTC has completed a significant buy signal.”
LTC/BTC 1-Day Chart (Analysis Source)
The buy signal he is referring to is the inverse head and shoulder pattern. It is a has been identified on the daily chart on Bitcoin scale. Litecoin [LTC] broke above the neckline of the shoulder on 6th June 2019. The price of LTC w.r.t BTC at 4: 15 hours UTC on 7th May 2019 is 0.0142 BTC. It is trading over 7% higher on a daily scale.
Nevertheless, the volume at the break-out is not significant enough at the moment. The target of the head and shoulders pattern will be around 0.016 BTC, which at current BTC price would correspond to $125.
XRP Split Between Fundamentals and TA
While BTC took losses during the final trading hours on 6th June, XRP broke continued to hold its gains above $0.4. The rise could be attributed to the rumors of Ripple’s acquisition of Money Gram. While officials from both the firms denied commenting on the issue. Mati Greenspan tweeted about the pump w.r.t. Bitcoin implicating a pump-and-dump on XRP. He said,
Used the opportunity to take some XRP profits. It was already a tad overweight in my portfolio. Thank you rumor mill.

Nevertheless, XRP Broke above the long term support line at $0.3 to test yearly highs at 0.49.

“2. New recovery highs in XRP would be constructive with targets of .5688 and .6260.”

The price of XRP w.r.t to BTC at 4: 10 hours UTC on 7th May 2019 is 0.0000538 BTC. It is trading 4.5% higher on a daily scale.

Report: Facebook Plans Cryptocurrency Payment Network akin to Bitcoin and XRP

Facebook’s cryptocurrency project is gathering steam as the Social Media Giant is expected to make formal announcements on the project by the end of this month. The reports that have come to light recently reflect that Facebook has planned a global project that will aid payments (especially remittances) and even set up ATM units.
Validator Nodes: Decentralization and Accountability
The Blockchain Team of Facebook has taken careful consideration of the centralization rules and SEC’s security laws. Therefore, they are soliciting third-party organizations to act as “nodes” on the network. These nodes perform the same function that miners perform on Bitcoin or validators of the XRP chain. These are computer servers or hardware that solves cryptographic or encrypted codes that confirm each transaction.
The nodes have been incentivized to avoid malicious transactions; the cost of setting up nodes will be $10 million. Facebook plans to begin initially with 100 nodes, which will bring in a combined capital investment of $1 billion. The capital will be used to back the cryptocurrency with a variety of stable FIAT currencies and even include low-risk securities. The validators can expect a certain amount of return interest from the transaction fees.

Providing a Globally Stable Currency and Payment Network
Facebook’s cryptocurrency, GlobalCoin is aimed at shattering not only the market of Bitcoins but Central Banks and SWIFT network from all over the world. Facebook’s plans reflect the vision which Bitcoin began with a decade ago.
Reportedly, Facebook has also planned to set up ATM Kiosks and would enable official payments in its cryptocurrency. The payment on the internet would facilitate seamless transfer to money to almost everywhere, even developing nations with adverse economic conditions; the idea that made Bitcoin famous.

Ripple (XRP) Price Breaks Down: Can Bulls Protect $0.40?

Ripple price failed to hold the key $0.4400 support area and declined recently against the US dollar.
The price declined below the $0.4200 support area and even spiked below $0.4000.
There was a break below a major ascending channel with support at $0.4380 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
The pair is currently near $0.4120, but there is a risk of more losses in the near term.

Ripple price failed to continue higher and declined sharply against the US Dollar and bitcoin. XRP is currently under pressure and it seems like the bulls may struggle to hold $0.4000.
Ripple Price Analysis
In the past few days, there was a steady rise in ripple price above the $0.4200 and $0.4380 resistance against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair even broke the $0.4500 resistance and settled above 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, there was a push above the $0.4610 level. However, the price failed to stay above the $0.4600 level and there was a major bearish reaction. The price declined heavily and broke the key $0.4500 and $0.4440 support levels.
During the decline, there was a break below a major ascending channel with support at $0.4380 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair even broke the $0.4200 support area and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Finally, there was a spike below the $0.4000 level and the price traded as low as $0.3964. At the moment, the price is correcting above $0.4100 and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.4646 high to $0.3964 low. On the upside, there are many hurdles for the bulls near the $0.4300 level. The broken trend line support near $0.4320 and the 100 hourly SMA could prevent upsides.
Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $0.4646 high to $0.3964 low is also near the $0.4305 level to act as a resistance. Therefore, if there is an upside correction, the price could struggle near the $0.4300 level. A successful close above $0.4320 and the 100 hourly SMA might start a fresh increase. If not, there is a risk of more losses below $0.4100 and $0.4000.

Looking at the chart, ripple price clearly moved into a short term bearish zone below $0.4300. If the bulls continue to struggle near $0.4300, there might be another push below the $0.4000 level.

The exchange added that funds not withdrawn within the stipulated date will be liquidated and the proceeds donated to the charity. The official announcement also suggested that the exchange will stop accepting fund deposits from the 15th of June.

Ripple [XRP] Price Analysis: Was This Retracement Necessary? Flag Pattern Breakout Looms

XRP initially found support at $0.38 following the correction during from the mid-May surge.
The formation of a short-term bullish flag pattern hints a breakout in the near-term.

After reacting to a double-top pattern, XRP/USD corrected lower as expected. The formation of this pattern usually hints a reversal when it occurs in the middle of an up trending market that is losing momentum. XRP initially found support at $0.38 following the correction during from the mid-May surge.
XRP/USD 4-hour chart
Chart source: Tradingview
Both the 100 exponential moving average (EMA) and the 200 EMA 4-hour have been supporting the price in the last three weeks. If the price continues to stay above the EMAs, there is a high chance that XRP will reverse the trend higher towards the critical $0.50. The last week of May saw the price correct towards the same level but the formation of the double-top pattern has resulted in a slide that has found support at $0.4000.
Meanwhile, the formation of a short-term bullish flag pattern hints a breakout in the near-term. This will, however, require that the price corrects above $0.4600 resistance (seller congestion zone), in turn, encouraging more buying entries. The increasing buying influence could send the price above $0.50 and pave the way for a further correction towards $0.60.
Looking at the chart, the MCAD continues to sit in the positive. The slight divergence means that the bears are likely to continue gaining traction. A break below the above-mentioned bullish flag pattern could result in further breakdown towards $0.4000.
As far as support is concerned, XRP/USD initial support is observed at $0.4200, the EMA200, $0.4000 and EMA100.
