    Solomon has a growing passion for writing, this propelled him to keenly work on Eagles News Media for about two years before delving into the cryptocurrency and Blockchain industry he finds more interesting. He worked as a crypto Journalist and Editor at NewsLogical before joining Herald Sheets, owing to the priceless experience he has accumulated since he became a contributor in the crypto community.




    A veteran analyst, Mike McGlone, who is the senior commodity strategist at Bloomberg, has reportedly averred that Ripple, the blockchain tech based in the United States, is capable of causing disruption in the cross-border payment industry.

    McGlone believes that Ripple could challenge other big techs in the payment space, but its exposure to the digital token XRP and the volatility in the cryptocurrency market could stand as hindrances.

    The veteran analyst shared the below thought in his April 2020 Crypto Outlook report.

    He said:

     “Ripple Labs’ 2019 partnership with MoneyGram suggests markets still see the potential for disruption in cross-border payments, yet Ripple’s exposure to its own cryptocurrency threatens its enterprise software venture. The project’s investors, including Mastercard, Visa, Capital One, Citigroup, and Bank of America, are likely just hedging.

    “Governance, scalability, standardization, and security concerns provide a healthy moat around the existing infrastructure, such as Swift.

    “If nonbanks could access central bank money directly, it could create unintended consequences for the Fed and disintermediate commercial banks’ role as credit creators and maturity transformation machines.”

    XRPL Monitor data says 42 million XRP was moved between XRP wallets owned by Bithumb, while the remaining 5.8 million XRP was sent from UpBit to Bittrex. At the time of publication, XRP is trading at $0.197620, with a 1.13% price upsurge in the last 24 hours.
