Crypto News Flash: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple and XRP, Stellar (XLM), Tron (TRX), Cardano (ADA)
From a potential powerhouse partnership for Ripple to the future of Ethereum, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.
Crypto trader Brian Stutland of CME says he believes Bitcoin will rise back to $7,250 in the short-term.
Stutland blames the recent dip on debunked rumors about Goldman Sachs dropping its plans to create a Bitcoin trading desk.
The Opera web browser’s built-in Ethereum wallet now lets users send cryptokitties and other crypto collectibles to friends.
The company says it’s a big fan of blockchain collectibles and believes it’s “only the beginning of this trend and that, as technology and usability improves, more online games and other services will adopt such tokens. We also see the possibility for these unique tokens to unlock access to content or verify eligibility for certain digital services.”
Ripple and XRP
Product marketing consultant at SAP Sarah Austin says the company is “testing XRP integrations.”
However, there is no official announcement yet from the German-based company, which creates banking software for the financial services industry.
We will definitely be discussing tokenization of assets as something that can benefit enterprise, however, crypto as a feature is not something of high priority for the enterprise right now. SAP is testing XRP integrations. #BlockchainChat
