Ripple (XRP) Futures – Is It The Next Big Crypto Market Shift?

The prices of bitcoin soared high enough to make it into the news because of the introduction of the Bitcoin Futures last November.

The market had record-breaking highs for a few weeks until there was a prominent modification.

With the launch of bitcoin into Wall Street, it implied a more extensive reception, particularly targeted at the watchful customary speculators.

Since the beginning of January, the market has been on a descending pattern because of different happenings and fallouts; despite there being a fresh futures market to surprise the crypto world.

 

The Fluctuations

Unquestionably, Ripple futures contracts have been dynamic for about a year and a half as of today. A startup based in London, called Crypto Facilities, introduced its first XRP derivative towards the beginning of the month of October in 2016.

While mainstream media acted as a hindrance and hid the XRP futures, there sure have been upbeat developments in the market equivalent to the bitcoin futures propelled on the Chicago-based commodity companies such as CME and CBOE.

During the start and mid of December, when two future markets opened their doors, the XRP futures were being exchanged constituting a minimal volume of around $14.2 million.

As soon as the contracts were terminated in January, the volume nearly doubled, growing to constitute a figure of a whooping $24.6 million.

Although it is beyond our understanding how this information/news has stayed under wraps for the most part and hasn’t gotten investor’s consideration, Tim Schlaefer, the CEO of Crypto Facilities foresees prices continuing to surge and the change coming fast.

Schlaefer refrained from disclosing the names of the big companies Crypto Facilities is working with, but the report that he presented to the CoinDesk presented a quick, crisp insight. CoinDesk was informed by him that the volumes of his cryptocurrency developed through February and is likely to hit peak records in spring i.e. March 2017.

As it should be obvious from the data and analysis available online, the exchange value has augmented exponentially since the introduction of the bitcoin futures.

As per market capitalization (commonly known as the market cap), XRP remains firm on the position of being the third largest cryptocurrency, but January 2018 being the last event, it has surpassed Ethereum at several points in time.

During this time when it is yet to reach to the press, CRP has an exchange value of $0.710 up to $3.08 in just 24 hours. Considering the monthly outcomes, XRP is at a negative figure of -37%, yet annually the currency is up almost 12,000%.

Conclusively, Ripple’s future seems to be very promising but approaches with a lot of obstacles since it aims to make the current banking industry simpler. Be that as it may, the ripple group’s choices are well-computed and in the event that they get to completely actualize their stage and the worldwide money related framework, they will take a huge jump in worldwide banking, leading it to be as trouble-free as intra-nation banking today.
