The Hideaways (HDWY) Enjoys Rapid Growth As Ethereum (ETH) And Ripple (XRP) Prices Stagnates
The Hideaways (HDWY) is one of the few cryptocurrencies that looks promising to grow tremendously in 2023, especially in light of the current economic scenario when others like Ethereum (ETH) and Ripple (XRP) are struggling to stay afloat. Each and every one of us who is thinking about investing wants to find a way to get rich quickly and easily. Keep reading to find out more about The Hideaways (HDWY), a token that could turn out to be a surefire moneymaker. Ethereum (ETH) Shows Little Sign of Recovery Although Ethereum's (ETH) price has dropped below the $1,500 mark again in recent days, the crypto community as a whole still appears to be optimistic about the cryptocurrency's long-term prospects. The cryptocurrency community as a whole is becoming increasingly bullish as the year progresses, with the average price of Ethereum predicted to be $1,600 by the conclusion of the year. If this prediction turns out to be accurate, the price would increase by $384, or 31%, from the time of publishing. On the other hand, the news that the FTX "hacker" transferred an astonishing 15,000 ETH valued at $16 million into BTC, which is based on the on-chain data from Etherscan, could have an influence that will cause the price of Ethereum to decrease even lower. Challenges Persist For Ripple (XRP) Since the fall on June 18th, XRP's price has been rather stable around $0.288. Although it broke through the $0.381 barrier on September 20 with a vengeance, it was unable to maintain its momentum. Worsening market conditions and dwindling buying power conspired to send Ripple tumbling down below the $0.381 support level. According to indicators over longer time frames, the bottom is at the $0.288 level. As long as the Ripple (XRP) price stays over $0.381, there is no reason to worry about how low the coin can fall. As a first objective, bulls have set their sights on the $0.441 mark, which is around 10% above the current price. This is a challenging obstacle, the same as the $0.381 one. A successful reversal of this resistance, though, would allow XRP's price to once again approach the $0.509 mark. The Hideaways (HDWY) To Lead The Market In 2023 The Hideaways are going to be the first company to combine the $240 trillion real estate market with bitcoin on a single alternative investing platform. There has been so much buzz about The Hideaways recently that even Ethereum (ETH) and Ripple (XRP) investors are considering buying in. And its novel business model is a big reason why. The Hideaways (HDWY) users will have the option to invest in a NFT backed by real-world, high-end real estate. The developers of The Hideaways (HDWY) ensure that there will be no "rug-pull" panic. First off, Solid Proof's audit of it was successful and gave it high scores. After that two-year period, a vesting period will begin for team tokens that were frozen during that time by the HDWY developers. The Hideaways (HDWY) tokens are currently being sold in a presale at a price of $0.08. Investors who buy them now may see returns of up to 60x.

About Ripple

The live price of Ripple (XRP) today is 0.383928 USD, and with the current circulating supply of Ripple at 50,260,446,248 XRP, its market capitalization stands at 19,296,398,368 USD. In the last 24 hours XRP price has moved -0.000261 USD or -0.00% while 407,642,530 USD worth of XRP has been traded on various exchanges. The current valuation of XRP puts it at #7 in cryptocurrency rankings based on market capitalization.

Learn more about the Ripple blockchain network and how it works or follow the price of its native cryptocurrency XRP and the broader market with our unique COIN360 cryptocurrency heatmap.

XRP is one of the earliest cryptocurrencies, launched in 2012 with the collective efforts of Jed McCaleb, Chris Larsen, Arthur Britto, David Schwartz and Ryan Fugger. While the names XRP and Ripple are often used interchangeably, they are not the same.

Ripple is the business that operates in the cross-border transactions space while XRP is an open-source digital asset running on the XRP Ledger. The company, Ripple, has a suite of different products (e.g. RippleNet) for large banking institutions and similar entities, and it uses XRP for some of those solutions.

XRP was launched as a faster, cheaper and much more scalable alternative to BTC. According to official accounts, XRP transactions settle in around 4 seconds and the network can consistently handle over 1,500 transactions per second.

Some of the prominent Ripple team members today are CEO Brad Garlinghouse and XRP co-founder David Schwartz, who continues to serve as the CTO.

XRP price

Given the speculation around Ripple’s partnerships with large banks and its use cases, XRP price has seen significant surges in the past. The first notable increase in XRP price came in 2013 when between August and December, XRP/USD went up by more than 2,000% (from around $0.003 to over $0.06).

The next big rise in XRP price came in 2017 when, according to our XRP live price chart,  it went from under $0.01 at the start of the year to over $3.30 in the first week of 2018. This rise of roughly 55,000% was unprecedented, even in the crypto space, and took XRP’s fully diluted valuation to over $330 billion.

After that, the price of XRP continued to drop in the bear market and fell below $0.12 in March of 2020 as the pandemic resulted in a market-wide crash. This drop was, however, short-lived, as the crypto market recovered a year later and the price of XRP touched $2 by April 2021 — an increase of nearly 1,400%.

Since then, XRP has managed to stay above $0.50, and despite being unable to cross its all-time high from January 2018, it continues to rank among the top cryptocurrencies by market capitalization.

How XRP works

For users, XRP is similar to BTC and can be sent between wallet addresses as a form of payment based on XRP/USD price quotes at the time. However, while BTC was created to be a truly decentralized digital asset, XRP was launched to make global payment settlement faster and cheaper. To achieve that goal, XRP makes compromises on the decentralization front in exchange for speed.

Unlike BTC and most other cryptocurrencies, XRP does not use decentralized consensus mechanisms such as proof-of-work or proof-of-stake. Instead, XRP relies on a permissioned validator node network that verifies and approves all transactions. 

Unlike BTC miners or validators on other networks, XRP validators are entities trusted by Ripple and are not rewarded for their role in maintaining network accuracy and preventing issues such as double-spending. According to official accounts, there are currently 36 validators for the XRP Ledger, 6 of which are managed by Ripple. 

Finally, given how the entire supply of XRP — 100 billion XRP — was premined prior to launch and is periodically released by Ripple, both the company and the cryptocurrency are often criticized for their overly corporate nature in a space lauded for its pursuit of decentralization.

XRP news, updates and highlights

Most of the positive XRP price action has come at the heels of news around big partnerships with financial services providers and banks. However, in December 2020 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed an action against Ripple and two executives — co-founder Chris Larsen and CEO Brad Garlinghouse — alleging that they raised over $1.3 billion by selling unregistered securities.

The SECs charges saw XRP price dropping more than 50% in a week, and the ongoing lawsuit saw XRP being delisted from popular exchanges such as Coinbase, Okcoin and Crypto.com.

With the case still ongoing, XRP investors and supporters await a decision that could set precedent for other cryptocurrency projects and pave the path for future regulations.

Frequently asked questions about XRP

  • Can you mine or stake XRP?

No, XRP cannot be mined or stake. The XRP Ledger is maintained by a group of trusted validators and the entire supply of XRP has already been premined.

  • What are some of the best XRP wallets?

Wallets for XRP have typically been hard to find, but today you can store XRP in Trust Wallet or on hardware wallets such as Trezor and Ledger among other options.

  • What can you do with XRP?

If you have XRP, you can use it for fast and cheap transactions or trade it against other popular cryptocurrencies, including BTCETHUSDT and more.

  • How to buy XRP?
