Is XRP Overpriced? This Researcher Seems to think so

April 30, 2019 in Boulder



Cryptocurrency is a very technical and (at times) convoluted industry which hosts thousands upon thousands of crypto projects, some of which are designed with a unique idea in mind. The third biggest cryptocurrency in the space at the minute is Ripple’s XRP which is one of these projects that has the vision to go the full length and become the leading blockchain-based remittance services provider.

XRP supporters believe that the crypto should be worth a lot more than its current price of just $0.29 but one researcher thinks the complete opposite and thinks that the crypto is overpriced!

The researcher is known as CryptoKea and says that XRP should be treated as a means of providing liquidity and not an asset to hold onto. In his opinion, the price at $0.0043 is still enough to settle the whole FX volume of $5.1 trillion.

As reported by ZyCrypto:

“This gives some credence to the claims that the price of XRP can hardly get past $300, never $1000 let alone $10,000. This makes sense because no user would like to store XRP beyond the time required for it to provide the liquidity needed to facilitate payments and so the price is not very important.”

XRP is known for use as a source of liquidity for Ripple’s payment platforms RippleNet and xRapid. With several institutional clients using these platforms, the cryptocurrency is expected to see some significant gains but that hasn’t been achieved just yet.

A lot of enthusiasts are wondering as to why this is and the answer is simple. The asset is not a store of value and that is how it was designed to function.

“Many Ripple supporters still believe its price will soar after the SEC declares that it is not a security. The question however is, will XRP really surge after it is cleared by the SEC? Ripple arguably has the highest number of institutional clients if its claims are true, so if the price did not surge before now, it may not make any significant stride beyond where it is now and for good reason.”

At the time of writing, XRP is priced at $0.29 following a 1.35 percent decrease over the past 24 hours.

The Smell of Popsicle Sticks

April 30, 2019 in Woodworking



”The Smell of Popsicle Sticks” is a short film about one man’s passion for building wooden surfboards and riding them in the frigid waters of Sweden.

The video is a portrait of Peter Jarl and his fondness for wood and surfing, which he combines by building beautiful wooden surfboards in his small garage.
The film focuses on his love for the craft, his authentic woodworking and the creation of his first 100% pure wood surfboard, free of fibreglass and epoxy. With a humble and enthusiastic attitude, Peter is not afraid of literally working against the grain, far away from the mainstream surf locations and industry standards. His goal is to build well-crafted wooden surfboards that last longer and are more sustainable than their factory produced counterparts.
In the video Peter shares his thoughts about surfing in Sweden and takes his board out for a test ride in the cold winter waves of southern Sweden.

“The Smell of Popsicle Sticks” is the first episode of a series of surf videos that tell intimate stories about people who pursue surfing in a different way and with non-standard wave riding tools.
The short documentary videos are filmed and produced with special attention to the interplay of sound and image, and seek to capture the beauty and poetry of these unique surfing practices existing on the fringe of the larger surfing community.

Ripple (XRP) Climbs Back Above Trend Line Resistance To Retest 50 DMA

April 30, 2019 in Boulder


Ripple (XRP) had declined below a critical trend line support. The price tested this support as resistance but struggled to break past it for days. Now, the price is finally above it and is testing the 50 day moving average. RSI and stochastic indicators on the daily chart show that there is ample room for a retest of the trend line resistance. XRP/USD might have some hope of breaking above this trend line support finally and the long symmetrical triangle that extends back more than a year could finally be broken to the upside. However, just like the breakout to the downside, this breakout is likely to be inconsequential as well. This is because BTC/USD has room to rally towards $5,800-$6,000 but it is highly unlikely to break past it.

The break below trend line support misled the bears into opening short positions against XRP/USD and a break above the trend line resistance will similarly mislead the bulls into opening long positions thinking the bear market is over. As always, the market makers and whales come out as winners in such times while retail traders whether bulls or bears end up losing money. This is nothing new and it has been happening systemically throughout the bear market. The situation is worsened by some industry leaders making overly bullish predictions. Of course, most of them have been proven wrong already but they keep on making new predictions nonetheless. The sentiment against Ripple (XRP) remains negative as far as professional traders are considered. Retail interest is also starting to fade away as the cryptocurrency remains shrouded in uncertainties over its use case and legal status.

The price of Ripple (XRP) has seen one of its worst declines against Bitcoin (BTC) in the past few months. The daily chart for XRP/BTC shows that the price has been on a tear and continues to be. We have seen some relief short term but XRP/BTC continues to be under its trend line support. This support was broken around mid-April when the price kept on falling despite being massively oversold against Bitcoin (BTC). Ripple (XRP) is even more oversold against Bitcoin (BTC) on the weekly time frame which means a strong trend reversal is long overdue. However, investors still need to see if Ripple (XRP) has what it takes to push for mainstream adoption.

When Bitcoin (BTC) made its appearance, the world had just seen a financial crisis and it seemed reasonable to back a currency that would cut the double spending problem and even attain the status of digital gold. Bitcoin (BTC) was never meant to be a faster or cheaper mode of payment. However, somewhere along the way when things started to be ‘all good’ again, the priorities changed. Now people expect Bitcoin (BTC) to be faster and cheaper. In fact, the majority of people in this market do not care at this point whether it is Bitcoin (BTC) or Ripple (XRP) as long as it can achieve mainstream adoption and make them good returns.

April 30, 2019 in Boulder



NEO Smart Economy has recently teamed up with the Zeux project in order to allow people to use cryptocurrency when paying for goods and services through Apple and Samsung Pay.

For those that don’t know, Zeux is a fintech company that allows users to convert their cryptocurrencies to fiat and pay for products and services. NEO will officially be made available for users on the Zeux app next week on 7th May.

The NEO option

The London-based fintech firm announced that it has partnered up with NEO Smart Economy this week. The firm is getting ready to list its digital payment wallet next week which holds a lot of excitement for the NEO project.

This development is very bullish news for enthusiasts of the project. As they spend the cryptocurrency in stores that accept Apple and Samsung Pay all across the world. Zeux is still positive that it is an all-in-one financial service provider that remains committed to providing its users with a more natural to invest, pay for goods and services and use banking services.

Frank Zhou is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Zeux and has expressed his excitement about their partnership with NEO.

Zhou said:

“This strategic partnership will help us build upon our current infrastructure and expand our service to a larger audience.”

As reported by blokt:
