Bitcoin (BTC) is still the king of the crypto market. It is the world’s dominant crypto-currency, the 60% of the total market share of crypto currencies. If Bitcoin rises or falls, the Rest of the market tends to be. The adoption of Bitcoin is at a more advanced stage, so that more and more retailers and online shops Bitcoin as an alternative payment means to accept officially. The Swiss Amazon “Digitec and Galaxus” announced last year that it now accepts a value of at least 200 francs, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and many other Altcoins. A fee in the amount of 1.5% of the purchase price to fall. The payment is confirmed within few minutes and thus provides a great advantage over traditional payment methods.
BTC/USDT premiums and price action show clear signs of accumulation and money flow back into risk.

Thus, the ETH would trump the classic Big players in the market such as Visa, Mastercard or Paypal loose. Furthermore, Ethereum, it is a share of 55% more of the Dapp-the king of crypto-currencies. The largest block chains in this area are Ethereum, TRON and EOS. Ethereum, a transaction is reached in 2019, with a volume of more than 12.8 billion USD (equivalent to 55% of the total market).

What I love about ODL is that we are in this technology at the front of it…. We are in the situation, billions of dollars in seconds to handle. The magic really comes to pairing MoneyGram transactions with Ripples ODL. We have now opened four new corridors, we begin to scale. And I think that this will increase in the coming weeks and months.
Despite numerous advances, the price of XRP has disappointed investors in the year 2019.
