Germany’s Second Larget Stock Exchange To Develop Crypto Trading Platform. TD Ameritrade Exploring the XRP Space

Börse Stuttgart Group (BSG), the second largest stock exchange in Germany, has set up a strategic partnership with solarisBank to develop a zero-free crypto trading platform.

Alexander Höptner, CEO of BSG was quite enthusiastic about entering the world of crypto trading, mentioning that SolarisBank will be of great help to the successful development of this project:

“With its combination of technology and banking expertise, solarisBank is a great partner for us to offer central services along the value chain for digital assets. SolarisBank’s blockchain factory helps us to take the trade in cryptocurrencies and tokens to a new level and set standards in transparency and reliability.”

In the early phase, the project will support only Bitcoin and Ethereum. BSG commented that the platform will be available to private and institutional investors expecting to broaden its client base and promote ecosystem growth.

It is also important to note that BSG also stated that it is working on the development of a mobile trading app. The project, named BISON is being developed in collaboration with Sowa Labs, a software development company.

TD Ameritrade Claims to Be “Exploring” Digital Assets Like XRP

Responding to a tweet from one of its users, TD Ameritrade Network commented that they are exploring the possibility of adding support for XRP trading and are actively working to make these kinds of ideas a reality.

The community’s growing interest in XRP is a sign that the token is gaining public acceptance and of course, institutions that adapt to these trends are the most likely to evolve in the ecosystem.

So far the TD Ameritrade team has not given more concrete statements, but the firm’s bullish stance towards Ripple’s token is of great importance to those who make investments focusing in the mid-term future.

TD Ameritrade’s response sparked positive reactions by Twitter users, especially among “fans” of the token who quickly expressed their enthusiasm assuring that this decision could increase the number of customers currently running the platform.

Right now XRP is being traded at around 0.29 USD per token. Its behavior has been quite stable during the last hours. According to data provided by TradingView such price is located near the Record lows for 2018.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Users Could Soon See ‘Free’ Transactions Become A Reality

CoinGeek and nChain recently joined a ‘Miner’s Choice’ initiative for Bitcoin Cash (BCH) miners. This initiative allows the miners to individually lower their own minimums for mining fees and transactions values that can be sent on the blockchain. Both CoinGeek and nChain plan to adjust the settings in the mining software on the platform to enhance this choice.

The first adjustment will be to remove the current minimum ‘dust limit’ of 546 Satoshi and make it possible for users to send as little as 1 Satoshi (0.00000001 BCH) per transaction on the platform.

The second will be to accept some free transactions in each block they mine. This means that there will be zero mining fees on the platform. Both CoinGeek and cChain believe that miners have the right to accept free transactions.

But why propose these ‘radical’ changes to the mining network of Bitcoin Cash (BCH)?

Firstly, these proposals and acceptance of them by two of the major mining pools of BCH (CoinGeek and cChain) will spur adoption of BCH in the crypto-verse. By lowering the transaction limits as well as having some transactions be processed for free, the platform will attract more users and HODLers of BCH. This means that microtransactions, such as tipping on social media that has been the domain of Reddcoin (RDD) and recently Nano (NANO), will become possible via BCH.

Secondly, one of the core crusaders of Bitcoin Cash, Roger Ver – also known as Bitcoin Jesus – had recently predicted the flippening of Bitcoin by Ethereum. The prediction would further postulate that Bitcoin Cash will flippen both by 2020. Mr. Ver is currently an advisor of MoneyToken which is a fintech startup that will accept BCH as collateral on the MoneyToken lending platform.

The above two reasons are indicators that Bitcoin Cash will continually become a force to reckon with in terms of crypto-adoption as well as its value in the cryptocurrency markets. Current market analysis indicate that BCH is currently valued at $1,117 and down 2.89% in 24 hours. With the Miners Initiative only a few steps away, BCH could find itself being the choice coin for more micro-transactions, HODLing and trading.
