Small Twitter Account Triggers The XRP Army for Posting a Tweet About Ripple CTO Consistently Selling His XRP Stash

A small account of less than 200 followers ignited a debate on Crypto Twitter after posting their impressions of a series of XRP sales that David Schwartz, Ripple CTO, was doing over the past few days. According to Hlnoooo, Mr. Schwartz’s sales are “the most bearish sign for XRP” and warned his followers about the potential negative repercussions of these operations, flagging as suspicious the fact that this whale is disposing of part of its funds. Warning to all $XRP holders.Ripple CTO @JoelKatz recently selling his $XRP stack is the biggest warning sign one could ever get. This is the most bearish sign for $XRP I have ever witnessed since beginning of '17.https://t.co/aHqeaLbxv8I recommend everyone to get OUT NOW— Hlnoooo (@hlnoooo) April 20, 2019 Hlnoooo acknowledges Schwartz is fully entitled to sell his private stash in whatever way he sees fit, however he explains that what really concenrs him is the evidence he is selling such a large amount just when XRP is at such a low price and many analysts agree that it is very possible that there will be a speedy recovery of the markets. He sold his $XRP during the two pumps to $0.40 and $3.00 which is reasonable. Selling $XRP now, at the very bottom, very close before the next bull market, is not reasonable. So he probably knows something we don't know.— Hlnoooo (@hlnoooo) April 20, 2019 Schwartz himself responded by conceding that the sale of XRP is part of his de-risking strategy as most of his investments are in Ripple stocks and XRP. So while an increase in the price of XRP can cause immense profits, a fall could also generate more losses than he is willing to face. This is still the case. Still sticking to the de-risking strategy my wife and I agreed to when we agreed to put our own money into cryptos. What helped me not to be so sad selling during the bull run was thinking how happy I'd be if I regretted my decision, but it still hurt. 1/2— David Schwartz (@JoelKatz) April 21, 2019 This position is quite objective regardless of how involved Schwartz is with Ripple, and although this response was respected and by all, the situation escalated when the rest of the XRP Army “attacked” Hlooo for questioning David Schwartz’s intentions. The results, according to information from Hlnoooo were shocking. He had more insults than his total number of followers. It is simply not bearable. 589, insults, secret deals with the IMF, skewing facts. When @haydentiff stepped in it was like a huge troll army coming out of the dark. I respond to any serious answer. I'd be happy to discuss with her how xRapid will (not) move up prices. Right here.— Hlnoooo (@hlnoooo) April 22, 2019 Some users debated healthily, arguing that nobody should not assume a priori that Schwartz was shorting XRP for some reason. Some explained that he was simply switching his tokens to fiat to perform traditional operations, others speculated that he might need the money to buy goods, that he wanted to invest it in Ripple shares or some other financial instrument. Another user argued that he could be moving his XRP to some Exchange. However, another part of the XRP army criticized Hlnoooo calling him a coward, stupid, troll, fake, idiot and accusing him of spreading FUD and BS. Come back with your real identity along with your financial statements so we can comb thru your life decisions & XRP holdings. What other people do with their crypto is none of your damn business. The only warning here is that cowardly, anonymous accts are worse than dead weight. pic.twitter.com/px2nXJKlub— Tiffany Hayden (@haydentiff) April 22, 2019 Tribalism is a common phenomenon in CT, some cryptos suffer from this cancer more than others, but this is a toxic behavior that in most cases, when taken to the extreme, has generated terrible consequences for the whole ecosystem. Perhaps the best thing is to take Jihan Wu’s advice to the BCH community and apply it to the entire crypto-verse, remembering precisely what happened to him when he was overly tribal about a coin: BCH community needs to learn a hard lesson. Be friend with other competing coins, learn from them, and make BCH better. Don't play hatred, don't wish competing coins ill. Just wish and try to make BCH better.— Jihan Wu (@JihanWu) November 10, 2017 The post Small Twitter Account Triggers The XRP Army for Posting a Tweet About Ripple CTO Consistently Selling His XRP Stash appeared first on Ethereum World News.

Is XRP Still A Promising Investment? Answers From A Twitter Banter

Things are finally looking up for the crypto space especially for the top coins like Bitcoin and Ethereum. However, XRP doesn’t seem to be gaining steam like most others despite it being the number 3 crypto on the charts. This impasse has many XRP fans frustrated, although a majority of them still maintain a positive outlook about the crypto’s future. According to one Twitter user who also happens to be an XRP fan, it’s still too early to start complaining about XRP. The crypto is still in its early stages and the industry is still figuring out the best use cases for it. The user compares the current XRP situation to discovering oil and not knowing how to use it. Meant To Be Used Or To Be Sold? While various crypto players and blockchain-based companies have stepped up efforts in coming up with various use cases for cryptocurrencies, some crypto fans are still adamant that these coins aren’t really meant to be used as currency. According to one user on twitter commenting on the above-mentioned thread about XRP, the crypto is meant to be traded or sold as opposed to using it as currency. To put his point in perspective, the user references Bitcoin’s 10 years in the crypto market, saying that at the moment, you can only gauge Bitcoin’s success by how much you can sell it for as compared to years ago. Doubters With Zero XRP Still, there’s no shortage of XRP supporters on Twitter, with some claiming that those who keep castigating XRP are doubters who don’t know much about the crypto’s market dynamics. According to one user commenting on a tweet, most XRP doubters have no idea about XRP’s path-finding features or even the XRP Ledger. XRP Comes Last But Pumps Hardest In a separate tweet, another Twitter user had a rather radical opinion. According to her, XRP has been known to be among the last of the cryptos to react to market pump. That opinion is probably inspired by the current bullish atmosphere in the crypto market. A lot of the top cryptos are gaining, but XRP doesn’t seem to be getting much from the bullish movement. According to this user, XRP has in various occasions been the last to react to market forces, but its reaction is always one of the best. Quoting her exact words, ”XRP usually pumps last and usually pumps the hardest.” The post Is XRP Still A Promising Investment? Answers From A Twitter Banter appeared first on ZyCrypto.

Is Ripple (XRP) Fading Due To Competitors As Hyperledger Fabric and IBM?

Ripple (XRP) range bound, 34 cents immediate resistance IBM Hyperledger Fabric and World Wire offer stiff competition All in all, Ripple Inc haven been prosperous in their promotions. Banks in the Middle East, SE Asia, and India are using their solutions. Despite that, Ripple (XRP) prices are stagnant and stuck within a 4 cents range. Ripple Price Analysis Fundamentals It may be seven years down the line and with more than 200 banks leveraging Ripple Inc’s solutions, the blockchain start-up is successful. With Banco Santander, SBI Group, Federal Bank, Western Union and a foothold in the Middle East and Asia, investors are eager for more. If anything, a measure of success would be on how financial institutions and processors respond to xRapid and XRP. The latter is the enabler that facilitates near instant payment settlement which Inter Ledger and a couple of other payment apps seek to achieve. Of the three solutions, xCurrent—an option that allows end-to-end tracking of transactions is popular. However, if there is a regulatory clarification on XRP and the US SEC comes forth, declaring the asset as a utility with no central point of control, then we expect processors and even banks to jump in the fray, enjoy security, transparency, and cost-cutting that XRP and xRapid tags along. Nevertheless, the sphere is heating up, and IBM’s World Wire, JP Morgan’s JPM Coin designed for institutions as well as its Hyperledger Fabric—in use by firms featured in Forbes Blockchain 50 List promise to slow down progress as clients do have options. Candlestick Arrangement Price wise and Ripple (XRP) is bouncing off the 30 cents support. Even so, prices are ranging within a 4 cents zone and yet to break off above the 34 cents buy trigger line. In line with our previous XRP/USD trade plan, the coin’s performance is mostly dependent on how prices react at this level—flashing with the 61.8 percent Fibonacci retracement level of Dec 2018 high low. If buyers build up enough momentum and break off from this zone at the back of high transaction volumes, then from an effort versus result point of view, we expect the momentum of Jan 30 to continue as XRP surge past 34 cents towards 40 cents. Technical Indicators As aforementioned, buyers are in control despite the headwinds of Apr-11. Nonetheless, it is imperative that XRP prices edge past 34 cents and feeding this momentum should be an influx of buyers reversing Apr-11 losses with high volumes exceeding 32 million and recent averages of 15 million.
