Ripple Price – The Bloodshed Continues Despite Dynamic Partnerships

Ripple Price – The Bloodshed Continues Despite Dynamic Partnerships

Euro Exim Bank, Ripple’s first partner to use XRP powered xRapid for cross-border payments, has announced plans to test a new system using xCurrent (responsible for Ripple’s real-time payments messaging). The new system will embed trade finance data into an xCurrent message. This is something similar to what SWIFT offers and would certainly be a major step forward for Ripple. In the meantime, XRP is dropping through support, dragged lower by Bitcoin’s falling prices and general malaise in the cryptocurrency market.

XRP/USD – Chart Analysis

Ripple’s XRP is still standing in second place for market cap with almost $1 billion between it and 3rd place Ethereum. The bad news is that XRP has lost over 9% in the last 7 days and more than 6% for the last 24 hours. Currently it is trading at 0.29 against the US Dollar according to aggregate data from CoinMarketCap.

 XRP/USD chart

The pair has just dropped through the support at 0.32 and maybe, more importantly, it has breached the psychological barrier at 0.30. This makes 0.28 the first and most likely target, which is a price last seen in mid-December 2018. I will note that is also when the price jumped to 0.47 from said support level.

The Relative Strength Index is approaching oversold on a Daily chart (above) and this fact coupled with the support at 0.28, may trigger bullish price action but there’s lots of resistance overhead so the extent of the climb (if any) will depend on how price behaves at those levels.

Support zone: 0.28

Resistance zone: 0.30, 0.32

Most likely scenario: drop into 0.28 support, followed by a bounce up

Alternate scenario: ranging, mostly sideways movement

Stellar Price Forecast 2019 – At Breakneck Speed to $1 and Higher. Expert Opinions and Arguments

📈 Price Predictions
XLM price forecast 2019: 7+ predictions from websites and experts. Is a $1 XLM value possible?
Stellar Price Forecast 2019 – At Breakneck Speed to $1 and Higher. Expert Opinions and Arguments
Contents

Although Stellar is one of the top-10 world cryptocurrencies, it cannot boast a high price: XLM is stuck at the level of around $0.07. However, crypto experts are optimistic about the currency and predict a major Stellar breakout. What are Stellar price predictions 2019, and what can trigger XLM growth?

7 XLM price predictions 2019

The vast majority of Stellar predictions boil down to the fact that the Stellar price will soar this year and down the road. Let’s take a quick look at forecasts:

  1. According to the Altcoin Forecast website, their short-term Stellar prediction is a 10% gain from its current price, which means it can reach $0.08 by March.

  2. Wallet Investor, a technical analysis website, isn’t optimistic about short-term XLM perspectives, but the current price can provide you with a high ROI level: you can raise your riches by 5 times if you invest at the current price.

  3. The Investing Haven team agrees that 500% growth is possible if Stellar doesn’t face any security flaws and the overall cryptocurrency market performs normally. A listing on Coinbase can also give XLM a little kick.

  4. Monetize.info reckons that Stellar’s partnerships will promote a huge price growth for XLM to reach $2-3 as a result. Sounds fantastic, but Monetize isn’t always right when it comes to partnerships. Just think of it: Stripe gave Stellar a $3 mln capital injection a few years back, which Stellar immediately returned in XLM. Aside from Stripe, Stellar will be supported by such top dogs as IBM, Deloitte, and ICICI Bank.

  5. Oracle Times states that XLM will reach $1 in 2019 thanks to a partnership with IBM that added eight new validators in December. Jed McCaleb announced that over 30 banks are partnering with Stellar and mentioned SatoshiPay, Mobius, and Hashcash among them.

  6. In a report posted by Finder.com, Stellar was mentioned as one of the most promising crypto investments in 2019. It stated that XLM might reach $0.21 by February 2019 and that the market will reach $0.41 by the end of December 2019. Their prediction hasn’t come true yet, but we still have two weeks ahead.

  7. The Economy Forecast Agency provides another realistic forecast – their Stellar Lumens price chart analysis shows that XLM = $0.64 is possible by the beginning of 2020.

Stellar partners contribute to XLM integration all over the world

What do experts think?

Industry professionals cannot come to some mutual opinion – their forecasts differ a bit.

For example, Ben Ritchie, COO of Digital Capital Management, puts high hopes in the cryptocurrency industry. He said that Stellar managed to gain enough respect in 2018, so it will reach momentum in 2019 for further development. Its blockchain will continue solving problems, so the number of investors and partners is expected to increase. He believes that XLM will reach $0.14 by February 2019 and $0.35 by the end of the year.

Joseph Raczynski from Joetechnologist.com supported this statement. He highlighted that Stellar is to enter growth mode, and 2019 could be Stellar’s year. The currency can still reach $0.13 in February and climb to and $0.30 by the end of the year.

Whatever the XLM price predictions are, it’s clear that Stellar has a lot of potential to reach: its unique blockchain can render benefits for corporations and banks. Thus, a $1 XLM price isn’t such a fantastic number – in the world of crypto, everything is possible.

Litecoin Price Forecast 2019: Set Sail to Break the $50 Iceberg and Swim as Far as $230

🤷 Opinions
Litecoin price forecast 2019: The coin has the chance to reach the value of $230. What are the factors contributing to LTC growth?
Litecoin Price Forecast 2019: Set Sail to Break the $50 Iceberg and Swim as Far as $230

Following Bitcoin’s path, Litecoin seems to be on the rise: it’s becoming quite popular among investors and is slowly gaining in price. There’s a very high probability that it will trade higher than $30 all year long, but what about its highest points?

Litecoin Price Forecast 2019: Set Sail to Break the $50 Iceberg and Swim as Far as $230

Focus on numbers: Litecoin’s future in 2019

Although the bearish period seems to be over, the crypto market is still highly volatile. That’s why making any short-term predictions is quite hard. However, it doesn’t discourage analytical websites and people from making their own forecasts.

Thus, according to publications on various crypto websites, Litecoin has enough potential to reach the $1,000 edge. Some articles mention the number $2,000 – it seems to be far from reality. What are these suggestions based on? It’s not clear.

However, these forecasts are on par with predictions from some experts. For example, George Tung, a cryptocurrency analyst, claims that Litecoin will reach $1,500 towards the end of 2019. Brian Kelly, the head of BK Capital Management (LLC), is sure we might witness an LTC price of $500 or even $600 by the end of this year. Though conservative, this approach seems to be close to reality.

In November 2017, Litecoin was traded at $100 and investors managed to enjoy 25x ROI. If the market is hit by the bullish wave again, the scenario can repeat: LTC might jump from its current $48 to $1,200. But what if that won’t happen?

Our guess is that Litecoin can reach the range of $150-$230 by the end of 2019. How can it crawl to such numbers? First, in August 2019, the block reward for miners will be cut by 50%, which might provoke the growth of demand for LTC.

What will kick-start Litecoin growth?

Here’s the whole gamut of factors that can make Litecoin soar separately or altogether:

  • The rate of accepting Litecoin on exchanges and online websites will gradually increase. One of the adoption examples is the Surf Air store that started accepting LTC payments.

  • Of course, Litecoin’s growth is partially defined by Bitcoin’s performance. At the moment, BTC is on the rise. However, Litecoin seems to recover from the bearish period much faster and better.

  • At the same time, while Bitcoin’s gaining in traffic, users start complaining about growing transaction fees and slow performance. That’s when their attention switches to Litecoin, with its lower commissions and better speed.

  • A big influx of traffic on Coinbase is expected – it backs three major crypto assets, including LTC.

Thus, Litecoin is getting more and more media attention, which only contributes to its growth. Some Internet users are sure that it has to reach the $50 mark to get back on track and start gaining in value. This event is definitely around the corner!

Litecoin, EOS, Stellar, Monero Weekly Price Prediction. Can XLM climb to the Top 5 Soon?

📈 Price Predictions
The last week has been prolific for the crypto market with Bitcoin testing the key $4000 mark
Litecoin, EOS, Stellar, Monero Weekly Price Prediction. Can XLM climb to the Top 5 Soon?
Contents

The last week has been prolific for the crypto market with Bitcoin testing the key $4000 mark, Ethereum approaching $150 and the total market cap increasing to over $134 billion. This is a solid climb considering February 17 it was valued at only $121 billion, the market is coming back to crypto. As usual, Bitcoin is dragging the altcoins up with it and in this case, we are seeing green across the board.

Litecoin (LTC) Price Analysis

Litecoin is currently the number 5 cryptocurrency by market cap with a circulating supply valued at $3,017,837,498 and a trading price of $49.82. Over the last 7 days, it has added 16.94%and is one of the top performers. The LTC/USD pair has been enjoying a steady climb since bottoming out at $22, is now supported by a strong bullish trend line and trading above the 100 days Exponential Moving Average (red). The recent break above the level at $47 makes $56 the next target which could be reached inside a week’s time. It must be noted that the Relative Strength Index has entered overbought for the second time and that may generate a pullback into the 100 EMA.

LTC/USD chart by tradingview

EOS (EOS) Price Analysis

With a market cap of $3,497,498,697, EOS is sitting just above Litecoin in the market cap rankings at number 4. It is trading at 3.86 against the US Dollar and has increased a whopping 37.56% in the last 7 days. The recent climb broke the resistance at $3.10 taking EOS above the 100 days EMA and painting a bullish picture. The most likely scenario is a touch of the level at $4.60 which was support in the past and has not turned into resistance yet. The RSI is deep in overbought territory which is an early sign that a retracement will soon follow but, however, as long as the price is above $3.10 the bias is bullish.

EOS/USD chart by tradingview

Stellar (XLM) Price Analysis

Stellar added 12.95% in the last 7 days and is currently occupying the number 8 spot in CoinMarketCap rankings with a circulating supply valued at $1,711,752,210. It has a trading price of 0.089 against the US Dollar and, from a long-term perspective, the pair is in a clear and strong downtrend. The but is that after reaching the bottom at 0.073 the has started to show signs of bullish pressure. For now, the bulls and bears are battling for the control of 0.092 resistance, which if broken, will likely generate additional upside movement. A failed break here would send the pair back into 0.073 support.

XLM/USD chart by tradingview

Monero (XMR) Price Analysis

Currently sitting in the number 13 spot with a market cap of $875,852,285, Monero is trading at $52.10 and added more than 9% over the last 7 days. Monero has had a weaker climb than its peers and is still trading below the 100 days EMA and below the resistance at $59. XMR/USD is in a range created by $39 support and $59 resistance so before we can see stronger moves to either side one of the boundaries must be broken. It’s very likely to see a move into $59 - $60, where the next short-to-medium term direction will be decided.

Binance Coin (BNB) – Forecasts and Prospects

📈 Price Predictions
Binance Coin (BNB) is the native token of Binance – the world’s largest exchange in the crypto market – and may enjoy further growth in the short term
Binance Coin (BNB) – Forecasts and Prospects
Contents

Binance Coin (BNB) is the native token of Binance – the world’s largest exchange in the crypto market. It is powered by the Ethereum platform and runs under the ERC20 protocol. The total supply of BNB is slightly under 200 mln. Recently, it has managed to rise on Coinmarketcap and grab position #10.

Binance launched its coin in the summer of 2017.

The exchange provides a big catalyst for its token. Binance intends to set aside 20 percent of its quarterly revenue to recover from the market 50 percent of the BNB supply that has been sold already, and then it plans to burn those coins. This would ensure a limited offer of the asset and may well let its price soar.

Binance has already conducted a coinburn recently, on January 16. Back then, $9.4 mln worth of BNB coins was destroyed. After that, Binance Coin saw major momentum, and its price got over the $10 mark.

BNB’s long-term prospects

At the end of 2018, the CEO of Binance announced that the exchange is about to launch a decentralized exchange (DEX). On February 20, 2019, the testnet phase of the DEX started.

The decentralized platform is backed by the Binance Chain – a blockchain developed specially for it by Binance. BNB is presently an ERC20-based token, but ultimately it will migrate to the new platform to turn into a native token.

This roadmap could ensure a massive rise for BNB in the future. However, if the DEX fails to deliver on the community’s expectations, everything may happen the other way round.

Right after the announcement regarding the DEX, BNB began ascending and since then has managed to grow from $6.20 to $11.67. Its current price is $10.77, as per Coinmarketcap.

Starting from the middle of February, Ethereum began rising in price by 10%, step by step:

Anyway, doesn’t it open new opportunities for investment?

Yet, not all top players believe in Ethereum’s potential. Look at what’s happened recently:
