XRP price seems to be a big mover over the week since the company saw its token increase by 3 percent when the Asian session opened. Following the latest developments in our altcoin news, we make a broader analysis of the price action.
The XRP/USD dollar exchange rate reached a $0.344 intraday high after being held up in the red zone for the week. The pair boomed with a moderate volume when the traders changed the game as same as they did in the previous session. The XRP price could not have been established as a breakout, therefore. The movement is also considered as a bounce back with higher chances of fading away in the latest trading sessions.
The XRP price recorded a mixed track record as we mentioned in the coming altcoin news. This could be the case since Resona bank, the fifth largest one in Japan, decided not to use MoneyTap which is a Ripple-based blockchain payments service. In the same time, the ripple price increased after Weiss Ratings claimed that the Ripple labs company aims to partner with Skype.
Another announcement that could have impacted the XRP price came from Coinbase. The major San Francisco-based crypto exchange announced to be expanding their services to 11 regions including Hong Kong, India, and Mexico. This could have brought XRP more traders. The altcoin’s market cap is currently hovering around $14.3 billion.
The XRP price downtrend is capped by the 50-period moving average indicator. A slight bounce back could open a good long opportunity towards the 200-period moving average. The analysis shows that we can adjust the interim upside target to about $0.378 which is a tough level historically speaking when talking about bullish attempts.
If the XRP price continues its upwards momentum, everything will be well for the altcoin. If this does not happen however, ripple could face a stop loss order around $0.320 and will leave the market with a small loss.
The current upside action is quite weak. This gives the market a lot of chances to open a short position towards the downside target. The analysts are now waiting for the XRPprice to break below the 50-period MA. If that happens, a short move towards $0.289 will be great news. However, we should expect a stop loss order slightly above the 50-period MA in order to be able to manage risks.
Binance Removes US Resident Ban: Launching In “A Month Or Two”
“3. Prohibition of use By accessing and using the Services, you represent and warrant that you are not on any trade or economic sanctions lists, such as the UN Security Council Sanctions list, designated as a “Specially Designated National” by OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Treasury Department) or placed on the U.S. Commerce Department’s “Denied Persons List”. Binance maintains the right to select its markets and jurisdictions to operate and may restrict or deny the Services in certain countries at its discretion.”When comparing the wording to the one uploaded in June, it is clear that Binance removes US resident ban. The previous text read that "Binance is unable to provide services to any U.S. person," - which is why the difference is obvious.
China’s Digital Fiat Currency Is Not A Real Cryptocurrency
“Since last year, the staff at the Digital Currency Research Lab have been working 996 to develop the system. We can say the CBDC is now ready to launch at one’s call," was his speech, later shared by many best cryptocurrency news sites.The CBDC with this aims to replace MO, meaning cash in circulation through a two-tier system. The central bank will issue the digital yuan only to commercial banks, who will further issue it to the public. Meanwhile the PBoC and its Digital Currency Research Lab are the ones standing behind China's digital fiat currency - along with more than 50 patent applications which are all either invented or co-invented by Yao Qian. One patent application reads:
“The emergence of digital currency is an inevitable trend. So far, privately issued digital currency bears the features of anonymity and volatility. Central banks must take their impacts on the payments, monetary systems and financial stability seriously. As such, it’s inevitable for central banks to push for digitized fiat currencies to optimize their circulation.”However, physical cash is still arguably the only form of fiat money inside China that can remain anonymous. We can see that China's digital fiat currency is not close to cryptocurrency - and the only third-party methods which are compared to bank wire can be offered by companies like Alibaba or WeChat - both requiring real-name verification authenticated by users' IDs as well as additional banking information.
“Existing M0 (banknotes and coins) are subject to counterfeit and money laundering risks. … The [CBDC] system should follow the existing rules about anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism financing imposed on cash, and should report to the PBoC on large amounts and suspicious transactions,” Mu emphasized in a speech.

XRP Will Defy The Altcoin Apocalypse: Ripple Chart Analysis
"Although many of the technicals like RSI, and position relative to moving averages looks like XRP is severely oversold and could bounce, traders should be cautious because the token has been falling out of favor with many crypto market participants, and there are many competing projects with similar characteristics and arguably a much better value proposition that have come to market."
