4 key Notes on Brave Integrating More Tokens and Cryptocurrencies

In the cryptocurrency and blockchain world, very few projects managed to achieve a prominent status. Especially when it comes to applications or platforms built to improve mainstream adoption, most efforts come up woefully short. The Brave browser is one notable exception in this regard, and it seems a few new currencies will be receiving in-browser support fairly soon.

The Major Cryptocurrencies

While Brave supports Basic Attention Token as a utility token, it is a well-known secret cryptocurrency support will be integrated at some point. Up until now, most people assumed this would revolve around just Bitcoin, but that is not the case. Instead, it seems seven different cryptocurrencies will be introduced over the coming months. That is a rather interesting development for many different reasons.

Among the list of to-be supported currencies are Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, XRP, and Dash. All of these currencies make a lot of sense, based on their market cap and overall status among cryptocurrency enthusiasts. There is also upcoming support for Bitcoin Cash, which remains one of the most controversial Bitcoin forks to date. Many people see no merit in BCH, thus it will be interesting to see if Bitcoin Cash can become more popular through Brave.

The odd Duck in the Pond

While it is good to see the Brave team introduce support for cryptocurrencies, one particular choice will undoubtedly spark a lot of controversy. Enabling support for Bitcoin Gold is rather odd, primarily because this other Bitcoin fork doesn’t enjoy the best reputation by any means. Even so, every project needs to be given a fair chance first and foremost, thus the team can easily justify this decision if they ever feel the need to do so.

The Universal Token UPBTC

Another interesting token coming to the Brave browser goes by the name of Universal Bitcoin, or UPBTC The bigger question is why the company would support this offering when Bitcoin itself will be added in the weeks or months to come. Although this universal token will not draw any attention from Bitcoin whatsoever, it is still a remarkable decision. This also makes one wonder what this list of additions is based on exactly.

An Extra Utility Token

While Basic Attention Token will always be the primary utility token for Brave browser users, one has to keep in mind there are hundreds of other offerings which can be added over time. The first to make the cut is CRED’s LBA utility token, which may pose some interesting competition for BAT accordingly. Just because this token is to be added soon doesn’t mean anyone will use it by default, but it is still a positive sign of growth for the Brave project regardless.

Ripple gains more than 5 percent since Bitcoin hot rally

The top five cryptocurrencies that include Litecoin, Bitcoin, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum, had a gross increase of zero point four-eight percent …

Ripple XRP has seen a massive gain of over five percent (5.1%) after the Bitcoin rally. The gain was expected since every single time Bitcoin chases a rally other cryptocurrencies including XRP get a boost too.

It is evident that cryptocurrencies are recovering smoothly from the market crash back in 2018 as Bitcoin crossed the eleven thousand-dollar ($11000) mark momentarily before taking a monthly breath.

The top five cryptocurrencies that include Litecoin, Bitcoin, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum, had a gross increase of zero point four-eight percent (0.48%) in the last 24-hours.

While Bitcoin went down by one point zero-seven percent (1.07%) in its breather, Ripple (XRP) had an increase of an incredible five-point one-one percent (5.11%) in its token price.

It is to be noted that out of the five only two cryptocurrencies went up. This sends mixed signals for the crypto market as a whole.

Yesterday the price action fluctuated according to the predictions and nothing out of the ordinary happened, moreover many of the major cryptocurrencies are showing bulls since the last fourteen days. This sends a green signal to the trend traders as the price actions are moving just as predicted.

Ripple gains more than 5 percent since Bitcoin hot rally 2

XRP had the most transactions on its network yesterday out of all current cryptocurrencies. In fact, it had around 25% more transactions processed on its network than the runner up, Ethereum. This may be due to the difference in transaction prices among the network with Ripple having an incredibly low transaction fee.

However, the largest transaction was processed on the Bitcoin network which was worth around three hundred and fourteen million dollars ($314M). This transaction was far larger than the biggest transaction on the Bitcoin last week.

Although Bitcoin’s Dominance on the cryptocurrency market continues to decrease, it still accounts for more than fifty-eight percent (58%) of the market cap.

Ripple’s XRP Might Be Gearing Up To Outperform Other Cryptocurrencies In The Next Few Days

Nonetheless, at the rate predictions have been centered on XRP of late, one may need to pay closer attention to the virtual currency. Like most crypto …
XRP Price Prediction: Why Most Crypto Analysts Are Optimistic About XRP In 2019

Bitcoin may be surging in price, but the cryptocurrency community has not lost sight of Ripple’s XRP, the third largest crypto asset by market cap. Based on the forecast of some analysts, we better watch our backs because something greater than Bitcoin weekend’s pump might be coming, but this time around, it will be from XRP’s angle.

XRP Has the Potential Of Outperforming Other Cryptocurrencies

According to CryptøManiac101’stweet on June 21, 2019, the cryptocurrency community has no idea of what’s coming and Bitcoin’s rally is “only a distraction”. The enthusiast opined that XRP has the potential of outperforming over 2,000 cryptocurrencies in the market today. He has, therefore, advised that caution be taken by those who have rushed to sell their XRP for BTC in order to ride the current wave of profit.

CryptøManiac101 is not the only one with this sentiment because anothertweet on June 22, 2019, from Ryan_W, a cryptocurrency analyst is not far off from the latter. In Ryan_W‏ ‘s opinion, if we think Bitcoin’s overnight spike to $11,000 is great, then we haven’t seen anything yet until XRP does a similar move and does it even better!

Analyst Speculates XRP’s Price Rise To $7

Retrace to June 19, 2019, Robert Art, a cryptocurrency analystsaid he is extremely bullish about XRP and definitely not seeing it at its $0.40 price level (as at that time), rather, he is seeing XRP take its position at a price of $7.

While that was said, Robert like the others didn’t take the time to outline what may have led to their sudden confidence in XRP, an asset that has maintained a steady price since the year began.

Nonetheless, at the rate predictions have been centered on XRP of late, one may need to pay closer attention to the virtual currency. Like most crypto assets which have recorded gains within the past 24 hours thanks to Bitcoin’s upsurge, XRP has done the same.

Prior to the surge in Bitcoin’s price, XRP was trading around $0.43 and had a market capitalization of $18 billion. However, it is comfortably sitting at $0.48 as of press time with a market cap of $20 billion.

Events and Technical indicators Trigger Investor’s Sentiment About XRP

What is remarkable, is that these predictions have not been made in hopes that XRP’s rally will be influenced by Bitcoin, but there’s the belief that the digital currency on its own can take a major leap in price. The latter has been attributed to a number of events in the Ripple community as well as the signals from technical indicators.

Take events, for instance, Ripple, the blockchain company behind XRP on June 17, 2019,announced its partnership with MoneyGram in a $50 million deal. The announcement triggered a surge in XRP’s price even though it was a short-lived one. Nevertheless, expectations are still high for what the third largest cryptocurrency by market cap will do.

Regarding the steep rise in hashrate, Keiser Report host and Bitcoin bull Max Keiser said “Hashrate (more often than not) leads price. This is something not even (Bitcoin’s) most ardent supporters understand. It’s the heart of the incentive scheme. It’s Satoshi’s ability to hack humans to create Gold 2.0.”

The hashrate easily beats the 60 Th/s recorded in late September 2018.
