Ripple stalls further while Stellar pulls away as over the past two months there has been a major difference between the two assets so let’s find out more in the upcoming altcoin news.
During this time, while Ripple stalls, XLM broke to the upside and left XRP behind. This came at a time when XRP’s sentiment was at a low point. Many of the holders are starting to question why partnerships and use cases have not translated into price gains. XRP has a lot of supporters who believe in the asset but it’s becoming difficult to hold such a stance in the face of rising prices elsewhere.

Chris Larsen and Jeb McCaleb co-founded Ripple in 2012. The duo aimed to solve the problem of cross-border payments between the financial institutions which are usually slow and expensive. After two years, the differences in opinion between the two ended up in McCaleb leaving Ripple. Right after that, McCaleb created Stellar which also offered to conduct quick and cheap cross-border payments. Rather than a financial institution as a target group, McCaleb decided to serve to the individuals.
The two projects have many similarities in that the underlying code is similar and both have private nods with distributed ledger protocols. However, Ripple always had a hard time for acceptance in the crypto community. It was dubbed as the banker’s coin which created a huge dissonance in the crypto space that is seemingly set up on anti-establishment principles. Stellar on the other hand went through the philanthropic route which earned a green light from many, as the Stellar Development Foundation says its mission is:
“… to connect people to low-cost financial services to fight poverty and develop individual potential.”
2020 is a rough year so far for many projects but notable exceptions such as Cardano made great progress and gains so far. Tezos as well got up by 136% since the first of January this year. Sadly, Ripple and XRP have yet to regain any traction of form. XRP is struggling to crack the $0.21 barrier while the price chart shows a distinct long term price downwards. The talk among the XRP community took a bearish sentiment but the figures as high as $589 were often floated about. however, after the continuous failure to break the build breakouts which plummeted to a more modest 20 EUR level.
