Ripple Sold Masses of XRP in 2018

In a recent report released by Ripple, it shows how much XRP the firm is selling. The highlight of the report shows a big year-over-year jump in the volume of institutional participants that are buying XRP.

Overall, Ripple sold just over $180 million worth of XRP in 2017 and according to the report, that number made a massive leap to $535 million in 2018.

Of the $535 million, the firm sold over $170 million XRP directly to institutions. The rest of the digital tokens were sold programmatically to crypto exchanges as well as other companies which have to arrange deals with Ripple prior to this. The report released by Ripple analyses the correlation of XRP with the other two cryptocurrencies in the top three, Ethereum and Bitcoin.

“In Q4, we saw an overall settling of XRP volatility compared to quarters’ past. XRP’s volatility of daily returns was 5 percent – the lowest quarterly average since Q4 2016. Conversely, we saw the average daily volume for XRP increase substantially. The average XRP daily volume was $595.7M – the highest quarterly average since Q1 2018. In addition, towards the latter part of Q4, XRP’s correlation with top digital assets returned to the elevated levels seen through the end of Q1 2018 through early Q3 2018.”

In addition, Ripple says more than 30 new crypto exchanges listed the second largest cryptocurrency in the fourth quarter of last year which ultimately brought the total number of exchange adopting XRP to more than 100.

There is 60 percent of the total supply of XRP owned by Ripple with a lot of the holdings locked in escrow. Although, as it says in the report, “in Q4 2018, three billion XRP was again released out of escrow (one billion each month). 2.4 billion XRP was returned and subsequently put into new escrow contracts. The remaining 600 million XRP not returned to escrow is being used in a variety of ways to help support the XRP ecosystem, including the RippleNet Accelerator Program and Xpring investments like Securitize.”

In terms of price, XRP is currently worth $0.31 after seeing 0.01 percent increase over the past 24 hours. The digital asset also has a market cap of $12,976,042,871.

Crypto market analysis: Bitcoin, Ripple (XRP), and Tron (TRX) price surge


For starters, last week witnessed Major League Baseball (MLB) announcing their intention to release an Ethereum based virtual, collectible game later during the Summer of 2018. The Major League Baseball in collaboration with Lucid Sights, a blockchain gaming firm, is working on a game-changing dApp that is going to boost the baseball fandom.

How this is going to work is MLB Crypto Baseball similar to CryptoKitties, blockchain’s most popular game, will allow users to buy and exchange virtual kittens, using Ethereum as the mode of coinage. Given that virtual assets have established themselves as profitable ventures, MLB’s primary objective in presenting the Ethereum-based game is to attract young individuals back to baseball by increasing its hype.

While MLB might be the first major league to back the blockchain technology fully, they are not the first sports utility to commence adoption in America. NBA’s Sacramento Kings, one of the most tech knowledgeable commercial businesses in all of the sports, accepted Bitcoin in 2014 to be one of their ticket and merchandise payment options.

Cryptocurrency Market in the Green


Although being down for almost one month hovering below 7,000 US dollars, Bitcoin has started to bounce back in the last seven days or so. Yesterday’s market activities saw Bitcoin prices skyrocketing registering a jump of 600 US dollars in less than 2 hours. Other virtual currencies such as Moner, Cardano, NEM, and EOS have followed the trend showing significant price increment in yesterdays and today’s market activities.

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is currently exchanging at $8,180 per digital coin, an estimated 600 US Dollar increment from its previous 24-30 hour market value, according to data released by Coinmarketcap.

At the time of writing, cryptocurrency total market cap stands at $140,449,716,215 up against its previous 126,178,000,000 market cap. Also, Bitcoin’s market cap has gained about $10 billion to currently stands at about $126 billion against the last $116 billion mark it was recording just about a week ago.

Ripple (XRP)

Like other leading virtual currencies, Ripple has been on a bullish trend since the start of Q2. On 10th July, Ripple (XRP) had depreciated to a low of 0.44 US dollars trading horizontally before the bulls took the coins value to a high of $0.51. Given that Ripple (XRP) is now out of the range bond zone of 0.45 US dollars and 0.42 price levels, Ripple is expected to continue with its momentum promising a brighter future for coin holders.

Tron (TRX)

As we all know, Tron has been making headlines having an eventful two months closing deals and signing significant partnerships with other significant financial players.

Tron is not being left behind in the ongoing bull run being experienced in the market with its prices jumping to $0.03769 today. A price surge of more than 8 percent in the last 24 hours.

According to CoinMarketCap, Tron’s (TRX) market cap currently stands at 2.4 billion US dollars. Many experts believe that today’s price surge of Tron is caused by the confirmation of Tron acquiring biggest p2p platform, BitTorrent, and will continue to climb.


Many crypto enthusiasts are attributing the current price surge by Bitcoin, Ripple (XRP), and Tron (TRX) being experienced due to several high-profile recommendations from the financial world.

Goldman Sachs, the new chief executive of US investment bank, is reportedly looking into ways he can venture in the crypto market. Also, giant hedge fund, BlackRock, is also reportedly building a team to study and investigate the uses of blockchain and bitcoin in the market but are said to be doing so under the radar. And now, today, the confirmation came in that Justin Sun, the CEO of Tron has ‘actually’ acquired BitTorrent. It seems like good fortune has come back to the cryptocurrency world.

Ripple, XRP could trigger the bull run of 2019 and overtake Bitcoin [BTC]


XRP has been dormant for a very long time and as the end of 2018 approaches, the much-needed news about Ripple’s partnerships with major financial institutions have started erupting in the crypto-space.

In addition to the above, XRP and cryptocurrencies are being backed by major players in the financial industries, like the managing director and the chairwoman of the International Monetary Fund [IMF], Christine Lagarde, which is a telltale of massive adoption of cryptocurrencies in real-world.

Ripple’s Partnerships

Ripple has now made massive partnerships with major banks and financial institutions around the world, like Israel’s GMT, Turkey’s Akbank, MoneyGram, AmericanExpress, CIBC, Earthport, and many more who have the access to use Ripple’s blockchain technology for cross-border payments and more.

Akbank announced that it was using Ripple’s blockchain technology [Ripple Net] to transfer the GBP to UK’s Santander, another financial services company. This announcement doesn’t clarify that it is not using XRP as a bridge currency, but it doesn’t mention that it isn’t either.

Moreover, the CEO of Ripple, Brad Garlinghouse’s words did come true, but partially because he had said that at least one bank will be using Ripple’s ‘xRapid’ by the end of the year 2018.

More specifically, he stated:

“I have publicly said we expect this year for at least one bank to use XRP in their payment flows to use xRapid.”

With only 14 days remaining for 2018 to come to an end, it feels like this was what Brad Garlinghouse was talking about.

Apart from the above, there have been rumors in the XRP community that The World Bank could be in close cahoots with Ripple, which sounds too good to be true.

However, there is definitive proof that The World Bank is considering using cryptocurrencies, according to the study by Dr Ramanathan Somasundaram and SM Quamrul Hasan, who are both researchers specializing in government procurement. they have also proposed the development of a blockchain network to boost efficiency across government procurement systems worldwide.

Christine Lagarde, the chairwoman of IMF, said that “money itself is changing”, referring to the cryptocurrency revolution that is incoming. Brad Garlinghouse retweeted with a comment saying:

“@Lagarde is absolutely correct: Money itself IS changing. Digital assets not only help to solve the financial inclusion problem, but also the very real issue of a fractured global payments system – it just makes sense that Central Banks would lean in.”

With the current banking and financial system, transfer of money between countries takes a lot of time and has a huge fees. That’s where Ripple comes into play, with XRP being a bridge currency.

A Twitter user, XRP Veteran, tweeted out an infographic representing how XRP acts a bridge currency between different world currencies. Fiat currencies have a web of interconnected and inefficient ways to convert currencies, which is subject to liquidity.

Using XRP as a bridge currency helps accomplish cross-border payments in a maximum time of three to four seconds and unlike traditional banks, XRP and Ripple’s technology can be used 24 x 7 x 365.

By using Ripple’s xRapid, there is a massive reduction in Nostro accounts, which are tedious and expensive. However, with XRP, Nostro accounts will be eliminated altogether as banks only need to hold the bridge currency, which is XRP.

In comparison with other cryptocurrencies, Ripple and XRP make the transfer between any currency, any asset and any commodity possible.

With all these partnerships in line, Ripple and XRP, has a tag-team plan to take on the remittance and the cross-border payment industry which is worth $155 trillion in total, as mentioned by Navin Gupta.

He stated:

“Ripple is not an ordinary company… We are here to make a dent in the universe… And that’s the reason six years ago we were born with the mission of moving money like information moves today.”

He said that cross-border remittances is a $155 trillion problem and that they would solve that problem first, make a difference to everyone in that industry and then move to next industry.

XRP spreads its reach

Coinbase recently announced that it is adding more than 30 assets to its trading list and XRP was one among them. Coinbase has always been known for scrutinizing an asset thoroughly before adding it to their trading lists.

Since that has been thrown out of the window, the cryptocurrency community speculates that it could be due to the bear market wiping off more than 80% of Coinbase’s trading volume since its all-time high in 2018, which was reported by diar in a research.

Furthermore, the community speculates that adding XRP to Coinbase could somehow aid and recover the lost trading volume.

Binance’s CEO, CZ, also voiced his opinion regarding Coinbase on a Tweet by Joseph Young.

Moreover, TD Ameritrade, a 40-year-old brokerage firm, stated in a tweet that it is planning to explore addition of XRP.

The tweeted stated:

“Glad you’re enjoying our content! We’re still exploring the #XRP space – stay tuned for more information. Our team is working hard to make things like this happen.”

Leading travel website ‘Travela’, with more than 500,000 properties in over 200 countries, has announced that users can book hotels in those properties using Ripple’s XRP.

XRP and Ripple enthusiast ‘XRP Vibe motivation’ tweeted out a map that shows all the partners that are currently using Ripple’s blockchain services, and exchanges that have listed XRP for trading. This could signify the reach of XRP and Ripple’s empire.

XRP’s market cap FUD

There was a huge commotion in the XRP community recently regarding the correct market cap of XRP. CoinMarketCap [CMC] not considering XRPs in escrows escalated due to the chief marketing officer of Ripple’s Cory Johnson, tweet.

To the commotion CMC replied:

“Hello, to help us process this request, we kindly ask that you have a member of an official team submit a supply update request here: and select “I want to update information on an existing cryptocurrency or exchange”. Thank you for your understanding.”


With aggressive adoption and partnership amongst Ripple and other financial institutions, if and when these banks go live and start using xRapid, XRP prices will definitely soar higher, leading the next bull run.

This bull run, in combination with the correct market cap of XRP, could be how XRP becomes the largest cryptocurrency in the world, overtaking Bitcoin [BTC].

VanEck’s digital asset strategies director Gabor Gurbacs says the public deserves to have the SEC approve the firm’s Bitcoin ETF proposal. Gurbacs took to Twitter to outline six reasons why he believes the time is right.

On Thursday, Cboe resubmitted the VanEck/SolidX Bitcoin ETF proposal to the SEC after pulling it during the recent government shutdown.

I believe, a #Bitcoin #ETF serves the public interest via:
+ Increased liquidity using the ETF ecosystem
+ Lower counter-party risk
+ Better valuation & execution practices
+ Separation of duties: trading, custody, valuation
+ Transparent fees
+ Established compliance framework
