Ripple had a great 2018 despite the bearish market and kicked off 2019 great as well. The San Francisco-based company is about to add another important partnership to their list.
CEO and founder of eToro just revealed that the company is exploring a partnership with Ripple.
Yonni Assia met Ripple’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse during the Paris Fintech Forum in order to discuss how the two companies could collaborate in the future.
“I think as a fintech company it’s very important for us to foster relationships with other fintech companies. Obviously, we’re one of the largest trading platforms on XR – so very interested in forming a relationship with Ripple Labs and understanding what we can do together,” Assia said.
Ripple has already some essential partnerships with major exchanges Bitso, Bitstamp, Coins.ph, and Bittrex.
These platforms will help power the company’s product xRapid which uses XRP to send money across borders.
It’s also worth noting that Binance’s CEO Changpeng Zhao recently said that a partnership with Ripple is in the cards.
“We’re focused on launching more features right now, so we are working with a number of other partners. With xRapid, there’s nothing going on right now, but in the future, we’ll definitely want to add them as a partner,” CZ said.
XRP to hit $5 by the end of 2019
Ripple is continually adding new partners and important clients, and this is just one of the reasons for which crypto experts say that the digital asset XRP is highly undervalued.
By adding new clients, Ripple will be able to increase the market cap of XRP, and this will definitely lead to a surge in the coin’s value.
According to Smartereum, “many of the cryptocurrency experts from different sources like fxstreet, express.co.uk, investingpr believe that XRP can triple its value or reach around $3-$5 by the end of the year. They say this is the reason why it is one of the best investment opportunities of this year.”
We’ll have to see and wait what happens to XRP’s price, but we know for a fact that the news will make the Ripple and XRP community happy.
