What is Ripple and how does it work

The banking industry is old, dated,and in desperate need for an uplift. It has been many generations since last happened until now, welcome to Ripple.

Probably one of the most innovative Cryptocurrencies in the industry today. They are not just focused on disrupting the banks but actually the only platform that see a gap in the market to help the banks and to offer real time cross border payments within the banking infrastructure.

Banking transactions are usually proceed in four days, now Ripple can execute banking transactions in 5-10 seconds.

Ripple is about to disrupt the banking & payment systems!

XRP is the one that is really turning the heads of market watchers and financial institutions.

Yet, like all digital assets, XRP is often a source of confusion, mystery and speculation. So, let’s clear the picture with a few things you need to know about Ripple – XRP.

  1. XRP is the only digital asset specifically designed for financial institutions and payment providers
  2. It acts as a bridge between fiat currencies
  3. XRP enables faster, cheaper and more reliable cross-border payments
  4. It is part of an overall network solution for faster cross-border payments
  5. XRP operates at a scale and speed far greater than Bitcoin
  6. It is secure
  7. XRP is more sustainable than mined digital assets, like Bitcoin

Huffington Post Talked with Stefan Thomas, Chief Technology Officer at Ripple to get a more in depth view about the Cryptocurrency Ripple XRP.

•Ripple isn’t creating any other cryptocurrencies or proprietary coins for banks. XRP is it. That means that Ripple success directly equals XRP success.

•XRP will soon be more decentralized than even Bitcoin. Thomas recently wrote a blog post explaining how.

•Not only is there a finite amount of XRP — just as with Bitcoin — XRP is actually a deflationary cryptocurrency, which means that a tiny amount of XRP is permanently shredded after each transaction. It’s the opposite of unlimited supply. As time goes on, the supply of Bitcoin remains the same while the supply of XRP will actually shrink, making it even more valuable with each passing day.

•What about the fact Ripple owns about 60 billion of the 100 billion available XRP tokens? Ripple just announced they are putting 88% of those tokens they own into escrow smart contracts for a period of at least four-and-a-half years. The structure of it means no one has to worry about Ripple flooding the market by selling their own XRP holdings. The fact that they are putting them into smart contracts means they can’t renege on that later even if they wanted to.

The biggest news here is that Ripple is “all in” on XRP. Previously it was believed they would sideline XRP and pursue other coins with banks. Thomas says that’s not the case.

Will XRP volatility scare off banks from using it?

It’s a great question, but here’s why it doesn’t make a difference. If a Bank A buys one million XRP and it takes ten seconds to transfer to Bank B, and during those ten seconds the price of XRP goes down by just one tenth of a penny, that’s $1,000 USD that evaporated during the transfer.

The time that banks are exposed to XRP during a transaction can be quite short. It can be on the order of five to 10 seconds. So the amount of volatility during such a short time period, even for a very volatile asset, is actually not that bad,” explains Thomas. “You can also rely on third-party liquidity providers to take on that risk. And those kinds of companies are actually very interested in taking on these kinds of risk to make a profit and they’re very comfortable with that risk.” This doesn’t work with Bitcoin because with Bitcoin you might be exposed to volatility over an hour, which is very different than volatility over ten seconds with XRP.

Ripple is leaps and bounds more developed than other coins

“It took us many years to come to a compelling, real use case for XRP.” Thomas explained there’s a lot of coins out there today with very vague use cases that people are buying up all over the place. It’s clear that XRP is leaps and bounds ahead of almost all of them in direction, vision, and implementation. Nearly all coins up to this point are conceptual, where XRP already has real-world traction.

Ripple (XRP) vs. Bitcoin (BTC)

Ripple is an enterprise solution cryptocurrency. “XRP was designed for banks from day one,” says Thomas. He explains that Bitcoin isn’t really suitable for enterprise use and that Bitcoin was designed to exist despite government, rather than in harmony with government. And that harmony is another reason why Ripple could succeed in a big way.

XRP can also process much greater volume. Bitcoin can process up to seven transactions per second at the current limit, while XRP today can process over 1,000 transactions per second. That’s a huge difference in scalability as volume of transactions increase and more people start moving their money using digital currency.

,

XRP takes an average of 3.7 seconds to transact, while Bitcoin averages two hours. That’s on par with the maximum throughput delivered by Visa, the world’s highest volume payment processor.

Consider this if you think XRP has an over inflated market cap: the global foreign exchange market does $5.7 trillion per day in fiat transactions. The size of XRP today, despite its tremendous growth, amounts to a “rounding error” in the scope of its market potential. XRP’s current growth is big, but it’s not even a 100th of what it can become.

Ripple is moving fast and becoming more credible each day, so much so that even the Federal Reserve are backing them and are telling banks to use Ripple XRP because of their fast and innovative technology.

Ripple are also hosting a three day event in Canada in mid October called Swell, which bring Ripple together with its foremost thinkers and leaders in the banking and blockchain industry. These partners are committed to changing the way the world moves money today.

Swell is attracting a roster of payments experts and industry luminaries to discuss trends, success stories of blockchain implementations and real-world blockchain use cases to meet changing customer demands for global payments.

Ripple have invited the ex head of the Federal Reserve DR Ben Bernanke & the inventor of the World Wide Web Sir Tim Berners – Lee and best selling author of the book Blockchain Revolution Don Tapscott speak over the 3 day event in Toronto.

The seriousness of this event has had a huge build up and to have these kind of speakers confirmed tells me there is some big news coming with Ripple XRP .

Now might be a very good time for you to start researching this platform yourself in much more detail because I truly believe this will be one of the biggest players in the market place.

– Real time bank cross border settlements

– Scalability beyond any other Cryptocurrency for payments

– Instant transactions

– Any currency to any currency

– Over 90 banks signed contracts to use Ripple XRP already

– Faster transactions than any other Cryptocurrency 1000+ transactions a second

– Offers liquidity for banks

– Currency supply will get smaller so value will increase higher

China can not ban Bitcoin

The Chinese Government caused a huge stir in the Bitcoin world over the last few weeks. Uncertainty was in the air and people did not know what was going to happen in the Cryptocurrency world over in the Chinese community.

In this blog I want to show you why China can not ban Bitcoin!!

People in China love a money game and love investing into projects with big money,. They really do get excited from gambling and earning fast returns.

So my question is did the criminal world play on the fact that they know so many people would invest into “So called ICO’s “?

So many people were joining these fake ICO’s and getting scammed the government stepped in and put a stop to the all of the fake shenanigans that were accoutring on a regular basis.

I actually think this was a good step by them to stop all the fake money games that were created just to cheap people.

Then in another bombshell that caused major panic & was announced that the Bitcoin exchanges could be banned and stopped, this news crashed the market for a period of time, but bitcoin community stood strong & is far to powerful to ever be shut down and you can not stop something that can’t be stopped!!

Bitcoin is a decentralised peer to peer network that is run by millions of computers all over the world.

The only way you can stop it is by turning off the internet!!

China may be playing a game too, have you ever thought what if they did this on purpose, what if they are a big player in this too?

Did they cause a panic in the market on purpose?

Do they have their hand in the market too?

This question is yet to be answered and only time can tell??

Bitcoin can not be banned though as it is a totally decentralised network, so there is no office to shut down, central body to attack, power chord to pull out of the wall, it is powered by the network all over the world..

This is what makes this such a powerful concept, the people have the power back

China actually tried to ban Bitcoin back in 2012 and failed, now this attempt which really just looks all about control in my opinion.

No matter what happens they can not ban Bitcoin!!

The biggest mining farms in the world are based in China & it was never mentioned that they would be shut down as well. Which is odd considering most of the volume comes from there!!

Here is a great interview with the Dollar Vigilante -Jeff Berwick explaining why Bitcoin can not be banned.

What are your thoughts on this situation in China?

BitQuick’s goal is to deliver bitcoins to buyers fast. In most cases you can receive your bitcoins within one hour of payment.

Reputation

BitQuick has established itself as a trusted Bitcoin exchange although it was hacked in March 2016.

The fact that BitQuick shut down until it fully understood the cause of the hack shows that it does care about the security of its customers’ personal information and funds. No customer funds were lost in the hack.

Fees

Buyers fees are 2% for cash deposit purchases.

This is somewhat high for cash purchases of bitcoin, but the speed and reliability of BitQuick makes this fee worth paying for some.

If you plan on selling bitcoins, BitQuick is a great platform. You can often sell your coins for higher than market rate, and on top of that BitQuick does not charge sellers any fees.

We hope you find this valuable and helps you purchase bitcoin, Ethereum, litecoin, dash, Ripple with more ease.

Monaco launch their app and registration for their cards.

So a few months ago I wrote a post announcing that the company Monaco are about to launch a very advanced Cryptocurrency card for Bitcoin and Ethereum, You can read that here – https://thecryptoproezine.com/2017/06/21/monaco-visa-card-launched-for-bitcoin-ethereum/

Monaco Launches Mobile App to Bring Cryptocurrencies to Every Wallet…

The Monaco app allows users to spend bitcoin and ether conveniently in Monaco, the pioneering payments and cryptocurrency platform, today announced the launch of the Monaco app, giving consumers a radically simplified way to buy, spend, and earn cryptocurrency cashback on all transactions. Together with the Monaco card that will be rolling out later in September, the platform is based on perfect interbank exchange rates, and enables users to save up to 8 percent on all foreign currency transactions.

“We are pleased to launch the Monaco app in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. There was a tremendous amount of work put in by the team into every detail of the app and cards. We hope users will love it as much as we do,” said Kris Marszalek, co-founder and CEO of Monaco.- Monaco is now perfectly positioned to increase the global cryptocurrency user number from its current 5-6 million to 500-600 million. We are revolutionizing the industry and setting the bar incredibly high.”

The cryptocurrency industry is in its nascent stages with up to 6 million unique active users of cryptocurrency wallets, according to a report conducted by Cambridge University. The Monaco platform aims to use this opportunity to address the industry’s reputation for being an opaque, niche market by presenting a simple cryptocurrency financial product with mass market appeal.

About Monaco

Founded in June 2016, Monaco is the pioneering payments and cryptocurrency platform allowing users to spend bitcoin and ethereum at perfect interbank exchange rates, saving US$30-40 on every US$500 equivalent spent on foreign currency transactions. Monaco raised over US$26.7 million through one of the most successful Token Sale events to date. The company is headquartered in Switzerland with operations in Hong Kong and Singapore.

Monaco Dev Update – Cryptocurrency in Every Wallet, Part 1

Today, Monaco takes a significant step towards its vision of making cryptocurrency available in every wallet as we begin taking reservations for the Monaco card.

Here’s what you need to know:

1. Monaco unveiled a full portfolio of five cards today: Midnight Blue (Classic plastic card), Ruby Steel, Space Gray, Rose Gold (Platinum metal cards) and Black (Limited Edition Platinum metal card)
 

2. All Monaco cards, including Platinum cards will be free: no monthly fees, no annual fees, no shipping fees
 

3. Monaco Platinum cards come with industry leading 0.75% cryptocurrency cashback on all purchases and US$500,000 travel insurance
 

4. Monaco Platinum cards will only be available to MCO token holders, who purchase 50 MCO (Ruby Steel card), 500 MCO (Space Gray, Rose Gold cards) and 50,000 MCO (Limited Edition Obsidian Black card) respectively; MCO tokens will be held for a 6 months period, after which users can deposit their tokens back into their Monaco account and continue to use their card fee-free, no strings attached
 

5. Users can download Monaco app on both iOS & Android to go through a simple three-minute onboarding process and reserve their card starting today
 

6. Monaco is going for maximum platform growth strategy with no fees for users; that means that even the 1% contributions to asset contract will be paid by Monaco from the interchange revenue and not by the users as it was described in our whitepaper
 

7. Monaco will be rolled out globally in stages, as each region requires separate issuing capabilities; we remain fully committed to be 100% compliant with local regulations in every market we are targeting – we begin with Asia, followed by Europe (Q4 2017) and North America (2018); first cards are expected to ship end of September, with weekly card shipments gradually increasing from October till the end of the year; we expect demand to massively outpace supply in the first 12 months, so users are encouraged to reserve their cards early
 

8. Further announcements will be made regarding approvals from card schemes in each of the regions & markets
 

9. MCO token is going to be spendable at 40m+ merchant locations globally with the Monaco card from day 1; you will be able to convert MCO token to BTC and ETH right from the Monaco app
 

10. Monaco has a very small quantity of Obsidian Black cards on hand from the original 999 pool and is making those available for contributors who decide to hold 50,000 MCO for 6 months – if you missed out on one during the token sales, this is your last chance to get one.

Finally, a few words regarding what’s next. In early communications during our token sale, we have listed several key milestones to look for as those that will drive value creation for MCO token holders. These were:

• Announcements regarding MCO getting listed on exchanges (particularly in China)

• Monaco app launch

• Card scheme program approvals

• Users receiving & reviewing first cards

From this initial milestone list, we have now delivered on 2 out of 4. We’re looking forward to delivering on the rest. It’s also a good moment to share our thoughts on what will continue driving the growth for Monaco in Q4.

• Europe mass rollout to ~30 countries

• Two new and previously unannounced product features critical to user growth

• Q4 users & transaction numbers

We’d like to thank the community for the overwhelming support we have received so far. We take your feedback and ideas seriously as we continue to build Monaco into a product you’ll love to use and a global brand you trust.

“Cryptocurrency in Every Wallet” – let’s make it happen together!
