IOTA Co-founder Is Optimistic About Future Expansion

Published

on

We all know that Bitcoin, Ethereum and other big names in the cryptocurrency world are making the news daily. However, the same cannot be said for digital currencies like IOTA which sometimes make the news – but most of the time are idle in the leading Bitcoin news portals.

If you haven’t heard about IOTA, it is basically a cryptocurrency with a market cap of $5 billion and currently the #1 on the list of most valuable cryptocurrencies. As of recently, it attracted several German companies with deep pockets (including Volkswagen and Bosch).

In an interview with Bloomberg, the co-founder of IOTA Dominik Schiener shared his beliefs for new partnerships. He sees them as a potential opportunity for the “next growth cycle”. Also, IOTA is constantly in the news for the possible smart contracts technology and features that it may offer, but some say these are rumours.

What’s certain at this point is that all the developers and mathematicians hired by the company are paid in IOTA tokens and not fiat currency. Also, the IOTA foundation has gathered more than 300,000 Euros in IOTA donations from users of the currency (who want it to rise and improve over the years).

In the Bloomberg interview, Schiener stated that there is room for expansion of IOTA – especially because of his successful partnership alongside David Sonstebo, Sergey Ivancheglo and Serguei Popov. The company is based on Berlin and gained much more credibility amongst the masses.

Despite its slow and passive growth, IOTA is a name every crypto trader and investor should remember – and one that will rise and become one of the most valuable cryptocurrencies of our time.

What Made The Price Of Ripple (XRP) To Rise Up To 100% In A Week?

Ripple was in almost every post in past week's crypto news, mostly because of its meteoric rise which pushed the cryptocurrency up 100% in only a week. The supernormal rally even put Ripple to the second position, overcoming Ethereum and its silver spot for a matter of hours.If we take in the numbers between the minimum and maximum price of Ripple, the difference is around $19.8 billion - showing that Ripple surged by 184% before the price got corrected. However, the market cap of Ripple went above the market cap of Ethereum and XRP was for a short time the new silver to Bitcoin's gold.However, the main question that everyone has right now is the following...How the altcoin Ripple (XRP) managed to double its price in less than a week?The first factor is obviously the launch of the xRapid solution, which came after long anticipation and was meant for a commercial launch as soon as next month. The payment service allows financial institutions to use the XRP tokens for conducting cross-border transactions.The second factor was the announcement from Coil and PNC. According to it, XRP has linked with the biggest names in the online world such as Wikipedia, Twitch, YouTube and other, with an aim to reward their users directly in XRP.The final factor, according to us, was the fear of missing out (FOMO) which catapulted Ripple's price - solely because everyone believed that 'now is the right time to invest in XRP'. This is what finalized the bullish transformation and pushed Ripple up.

Wikipedia, Twitch And YouTube Now Award Ripple (XRP) To Their Content Creators

There has never been a better time to be alive for content creators. In the latest news, we have such creators all around the Web, and apparently the latest cryptocurrency news also goes in their favor.From now on, content creators will be able to accept payments in Ripple (XRP), which is one of the 'top 5' altcoins. This decision has been made after Coil, which is the brainchild of the former CTO of Ripple Labs, Stefan Thomas, has launched the beta version of his browser extension app of the same name which allows users to tip content creators with XRP tokens.In fact, the concept of this transferring and token award system is arguably borrowed from Changetip, which is a now-defunct Bitcoin tipping app. With it, Coil has somewhat established its advancement by becoming an alternative to today's web full of ads.According to Thomas:
“For decades, people have discussed the potential of micropayments to support content creators that would move us away from the broken ad-supported web. Others have created subscription services that bundle content. But micropayments and subscriptions have always been built as closed systems, which fail to capture the huge variety of content on the web.”
Coil is also the first when it comes to paying out websites using Web Monetization, which is an Interledger-powered standard that enables browsers to pay websites. In that manner, Coil will now be compatible with some of the greatest online platforms such as YouTube, Wikipedia, Twitch, Internet Archive and Beat, with many other names to follow in the future.
