On Wednesday, there was a broad-but-shallow dip in the overall cryptocurrency market. XRP prices were caught in the downdraft, but it is unlikely to affect our $2.00 Ripple price prediction. That said, trading volumes remained below $100.0 million for the fifth consecutive day, sparking some concern that liquidity…

Will Litecoin prices fall below $50.00? That’s probably the most important question for the short-term Litecoin price forecast, but it’s unlikely to matter over the long haul.

Narrow spreads, low volatility, and relative calm. If someone asked you to name an asset class with those qualities, would your answer be cryptocurrencies? Absolutely not!

Bitcoin appears to have levelled off, showing gains of about $200.00 so far this week, but showing no signs of a massive swing one way or the other. The stability is a welcome respite from the movement the market witnessed over September, where the China ICO block caused…

After a tumultuous week, investors are largely sitting on the sidelines, waiting for something to happen with Ripple prices. One juicy bit of Ripple news would likely spark a massive rally. Funnily enough, that juicy bit of news may have come and gone without investors noticing. In the…

On Tuesday, investors ignored bullish Ethereum news once again. Why? Because, like an angsty teenager, they are angry with the world. “How could China ban cryptocurrency exchanges? It’s not fair!” It isn’t. But that doesn’t erase any of Ethereum’s constructive developments. For example, Ethereum started testing the long-awaited…

Mark Cuban: $20.0 Million Cryptocurrency Investment Just weeks after calling Bitcoin a “bubble,” billionaire Mark Cuban is eating his words. Or at least he’ll be able to once he takes his foot out of his mouth. Cuban made his criticisms of cryptocurrencies in June, but by the end…

As the dust settles from China’s crackdown on cryptocurrencies, Ethereum looks poised for a rally that could send it across the $300.00 level. However, the situation remains tenuous. The Chinese ban confirmed the worst fears of some investors—that central banks and other vested interests will regulate against cryptocurrencies…

Bitcoin (BTC) is once again nearing the all-important $4,000 threshold, a significant bounce-back compared to last week's low point of $3,200 that came as a result of China's crackdown on initial coin offerings (ICO). Of course, the brightest cryptocurrency future has to include the Chinese market and its…

Ripple prices took a break from the high drama of recent weeks, ending the last 24 hours a slight twitch up to around $0.185670. The stability of the Ripple to USD exchange rate is a constructive signal for investors that grew nervous after the Chinese crackdown. After all,…

China’s ban on cryptocurrency exchanges was once again the biggest piece of Ripple news. This time, however, prices moved to the…

Despite China taking a bat to Litecoin’s knees, the Litecoin-to-USD exchange rate bounced up about 9.68% to roughly $51.89. “What explosive piece of Litecoin news caused this rally?” you ask. Oddly, nothing in particular. This was a see-saw moment for Litecoin prices. After tilting hard towards the bearish…

Considering that…

Bitcoin Turned $25 into $34 Million Bitcoin, bitcoin, bitcoin, bitcoin, bitcoin, bitcoin...bitcoin. It’s all that anyone seems to be talking about, yet the volatility of Bitcoin is terrifying. Double-digit swings are a normal occurrence. And no one can explain what it does, at least not in plain English.…

As with the rest of the cryptocurrency market, China takes center stage in our Ripple news update. It’s the only thing that matters at the moment, though one could argue that XRP is unfairly caught in the crossfire. After all, less than five percent of Ripple’s trading volume…
