While XLM fans rejoice over the reversal in 2018’s bear cycle, which saw their coin fall nearly 85% in value since the start of the year, it’s Ripple XRP investors that are left questioning the exchange’s decision–in addition to the price outlook for their own currency.
It is important to mention that CNBC’s Fast Money conducted a poll between XRP, Cardano (ADA), ZCash (ZEC), and Stellar (XLM), in which Ripple led with 34% of the votes, followed by ZCash (30%), Cardano (25%), and Stellar (11%).
XRP is one of the most important virtual currencies in the market. Indeed, XRP has a market capitalization of $18 billion dollars and each token can be bought for $0.46 dollars.
The leading IT giant Samsung has announced that digital currency payments will be accepted. This is possible via a partnership with CopPay Platform.
The stores that will accept cryptocurrencies are those located in Tallinn (Estonia), Riga (Latvia), Vilnius (Lithuania), and Kaunas (Lithuania). The expected results have not yet been released, but it is clear that with a broader range of possibilities, sales will increase. One of the coins that is going to be accepted is XRP token from Ripple.
