Crypto Doomsday: Ripple Conquers ETH, While Its Taking Last Breath

The crypto industry is currently suffering one of the largest downtrends in a very long period of time. Cryptocurrencies are not just falling in price, they are absolutely and totally collapsing.


What catches your attention, besides the fact that all coins are in the deep red zone? Yes, you are right, the 2nd place after Bitcoin, which has always been occupied by Ethereum, now belongs to Ripple. XRP only lost 2.89%, whereas Ethereum plummeted by almost 15%.

Though XRP did outrun ETH before, the previous time it was not a convincing victory, since the things quickly went back to normal. This time, however, many crypto specialists believe that XRP might be here to stay.

Actually, this is not the first recent change in the rating of top digital coins. We remind you:

Stellar Has Outrun EOS and Became the 5th Top Cryptocurrency

Did or Didn’t Ripple Bribe Coinbase? Should We Believe In Response of Ripple’s Executive On The Case?

It may seem that bribery scandals and acquisitions cannot touch cryptocurrency industry, but that is not true. The recent announcement of Coinbase having listed Ripple’s XRP is a proof of it, since many crypto related people reckon Ripple bribed Coinbase. Let us see what happened.

On February 26, Coinbase Pro announced that XRP was available to trade. The platform provides more advanced services that the regular Coinbase. After listing XRP on Coinbase platform, the price on the tokens raised by 10 percent.

According to the report made by Dior in late February, Coinbase breached its rules to list XRP tokens. Moreover, the CIO of Altana Digital Currency Fund contacted with Elliott Suthers who is Coinbase’s communications’ director and asked some questions. He wrote

whether or not Coinbase asked for permission of either the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or Commodity and Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). In addition, Suthers was asked whether there was a private deal between Coinbase and Ripple for listing XRP pairs.

Suthers answered that he was ready to discuss these things “off the record”, thus let people think that there was something illegal between Coinbase and Ripple.

On the next day, Miguel Vias replied via Twitter that there was no payment regarding this situation.

In April 2018, Bloomberg published that Ripple offered Coinbase and Gemini platforms to list XRP tokens for $100 million in XRP and $1 million correspondingly. Even though the CEO of Ripple refused all the accusations, but rumours cannot just appear from nowhere. It makes us think what if Miguel Vias or any other Ripple’s representative is hiding the truth. It is also quite suspiciously that the company which was embroiled in different lawsuits of insider trading surrounding its Bitcoin Cash listing, did not get anything from listed XRP.

What about you? Do you believe in Ripple’s Executive’s words?

Alibaba Group Won Its Right To Solely Use “Alibaba” Logo, Alibabacoin Agrees To Change Its Name To ABBC

The controversy between Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba and Dubai-based crypto firm Alibabacoin had begun long time ago and, finally, this week it has come to end. Two firms settled an agreement, according to which, Alibaba Foundation has to change its name to ABBC Foundation.

Alibaba filed lawsuit to the US court

The dispute started when Dubai crypto firm had conducted a successful initial coin offering (ICO) under the name of Alibaba. The Chinese company immediately filed a lawsuit to the US Manhattan court. However, the later did not accept charges that were put against Alibaba Foundation.

That time Alibabacoin claimed that this name is commonly used in Arabic countries, thereby no one possesses it individually, and it does not belong to any entity. Moreover, Alibaba Foundation stated that there were no grounds to confuse Alibaba customers, since China imposed a ban on ICO in the country.

The representatives of Alibaba Group said that when Alibabacoin was promoting its coin, the customers might think that it was connected to Alibaba Group.

Agreement between two sides

Finally, this controversy came to end. The Alibabacoin Foundation agreed to change its name to ABBC coin, the company expressed its regret considering any public confusion that had arose from its previous name Alibabacoin. The statement reads:

“Alibaba Group Holdings Ltd. (Alibaba) and ABBC Blockchain IT Solutions LLC (ABBC) today announced that they had reached a worldwide settlement of claims involving use of the name ALIBABACOIN, with ABBC agreeing not to use trademarks that include the term ALIBABA worldwide.”
