Arbitrum, Cardano and Ripple are key crypto assets, but with different paths. They could reap profits for many investors, especially if the banking crisis continues.
Analysis of the crypto assets Arbitrum, Cardano and Ripple
Arbitrum, Cardano and Ripple are in ferment amid positive news and impending crypto launches. Let’s take a look at the reasons why by analyzing the three.
Countdown to ARB, the native token of the layer-2 solution Arbitrum, the new crypto will be launched in two days and will be distributed by airdrop to its users.
The modalities of the token distribution have been announced by the Arbitrum Foundation, which has set up timing and rules.
Those who come into possession of ARB will also acquire the right to vote in the pivotal decisions of the blockchain that was created to optimize expenses and time in transactions between users.
Arbitrum Foundation had already anticipated that the Layer-2 would evolve into a DAO back on 16 March in an official statement.
The distribution of tokens will take place only to users who have interacted with the chain and not to new users who arrived as a result of the ARB launch announcement.
The requirement to have already taken part in Arbitrum is not a guarantee for the allocation of the new crypto. Indeed, users must have already deposited 10,000 euros by February 2023.
Of the 100% of the units issued, 42% are in the hands of the Treasury, 26% in those of the Arbitrum Team while 11.5% will be divided among users.
Ethereum’s Layer-2 occupies 55% of the market share in the category, in second place is Optimism and followed by the other Layer-2s.
ADA’s price remains tentative and appreciates by a modest 1% while BTC returns 55% from its all time high and then retraces.
Today Bitcoin is worth $27,898.10 and appreciates 0.27% but fails to drag along with it Cardano, which is usually very responsive to BTC’s surges.
Altcoins normally respond well to digital gold’s surges and even in this case, over the past week they have done so but more was expected from ADA.
While Cardano is accustoming us to a positive trend, analysts were estimating growth more consistent with the performance of Satoshi’s locomotive.
After touching $0.35, despite resuming growth, the token stopped at $0.31, far short of the estimates made.
Some insiders say ADA should have broken through $0.50 following Bitcoin’s strong push to the whole sector having risen from $19,000 to $28,000 in five days.
Supports of $0.50 first and $1 later are within reach despite Cardano being at the pole in a prolific week for the crypto world.
Bitcoin is one step closer to the psychological $30,000 mark and Ethereum is aiming for the $2,000 support.
Achievement of these targets by the two most capitalized currencies would likely bring Cardano forward as well.
If the bullish trend is not confirmed and the entire market has finished the boost from the banking crisis then ADA could move back toward $0.24.
Ripple Labs (XRP): crypto performs better than Cardano
As the home page of Ripple’s website reads:
“Fast and green, the digital asset XRP was created to be the most practical cryptocurrency for financial services applications.
Transactions are settled on the XRP ledger in 3-5 seconds.
XRP transaction fees average $0.0002 per transaction.
XRP Ledger is 61,000 times more energy efficient than proof-of-work blockchains.
XRP Ledger is decentralized, managed by a global network of over 150 validators.”
The above features make Ripple the perfect tool to connect the crypto world to the world of banking and classical finance.
For this very reason, the price of XRP in the last week has perhaps gained 4.28% while in 24 hours it grows 1.88%.
As of today, the spin crypto is worth $0.38 benefiting from the US financial crisis in the footsteps of the glories of Lehman Brothers.
The US crisis should have weighed on XRP, especially following what the company’s CEO said about its exposure in the failed Silicon Valley Bank.
The exposure constitutes a tough nut to crack for Ripple but despite this, the token appreciated as the market rewarded the government and Fed’s intervention to secure the accounts of SVB and the other banks in the balance.
Meanwhile, good news also comes from the legal front and sees Ripple Labs close to a ruling against the SEC.
Analisa Torres the judge in the Ripple-SEC case, has granted to relieve Patrick Doody from the witness stand.
An opposite fate befell the SEC’s request to relieve attorney John E. Deaton to testify for Ripple.
The feeling is that a positive resolution or at least a favorable settlement for Ripple is possible within the year and that XRP will soon be back on track.
Recovery of the $0.50 level will be the first step in the event of a victory.
