The popular American exchange Coinbase exchange reacted to the information spread in the community that Ripple will soon be listed on it.
Representatives of the well-known trading platform reported that in the near future there will be no opportunity to trade XRP. Based on the rumors of listing, the exchange rate of the coin grew by 17% the day before.
The version that Ripple could be added to Coinbase after Bitcoin Cash reappeared on Monday, when users linked the new Fast Money transfer to CNBC with the participation of Ripple CEO Bred Garlinghouse and Coinbase President Asiff Hirji with the preparation of an important announcement.
On the afternoon of March 5, the coin broke through the resistance level of $1 and its price reached $1,085. Against the backdrop of rumors, investors showed greater interest in Ripple, and some were afraid not to have time to benefit from the growing rate and also began buying, which caused the price to rise. However, then representatives of Coinbase wrote in their official Twitter account that in the near future no new coins will appear on the platform.
“Our statement of January 4, 2018 continues to be in force: we did not take any decisions on adding additional assets to GDAX or Coinbase. [...] Any statement about the opposite is untrue and not authorized by the company," said representatives of the crypto-exchange.
In January, the cost of XRP rose to a record in the entire history of this cryptocurrency to almost $3.8, which pushed ether (Ethereum) from the second place. The market value of Ripple exceeded the similar indicator of such technology companies as Uber and Didi Chuxing. At that, the initial price of the token was less than a cent.
At the time of writing, Ripple rates slipped by 9.48%. Market capitalization was $37.31 billion. The cost of one XRP token is $0.95.
Though the crypto market is still relatively new and lacks many of the traditional institutions of a civilized market, there are projects on the market that seek to indemnify or mitigate the associated risks that investors take when deciding to invest in projects. Cryptics is one such project that seeks to offer the necessary instruments for alleviating the situation with uncertainty. The concept behind it is to support market participants by providing liquidity on exchanges and a safety cushion for retail investors by creating a platform that connects market players and develops algorithms to predict changes in the value of cryptocurrencies. Such instruments based on highly advanced scoring models involving machine learning and AI are incomparable with human intuition that even the luckiest and most prudent investors could ever be endowed with. The multitude of factors involved in predicting a cryptocurrency’s rise or fall are all taken into account by the algorithms that Cryptics employs. Investors should consult such projects as the expense is well worth the ensured profit and peace of mind.
