Capping off on what has been a very successful week for XRP, Ripple, the company behind the second largest altcoin in the market, has seen yet another integration announcement. The San Francisco giant’s Interledger system will now be linked with Coil via the upcoming Puma Browser.
In an April 7 tweet, Coil spelled out the announcement, stating that Puma Browser was the iOS supported browser that integrated both Coil and Interledger on its system.
The tweet read:
“🙌 You can now take Coil for a spin on iPhones & iPads!
🎉 to @PumaBrowser for building the first iOS browser to support us & @Interledger. Upvote them on @ProductHunt + sign up for their Early Preview today.
Puma Technologies, another San Francisco-based technology company is behind the Puma Browser. Curating the browser as a privacy-prioritizing platform, the company aims to compete with the likes of Brave Browser which enable the distribution of Basic Attention Token [BAT] when certain websites are viewed.
With the imminent launch of the browser anticipated highly by proponents of both the Interledger camp and the Coil camp, Puma Browser has been sending quite a buzz in the crypto-payment community. Additionally, it allows its users to pay for content and services while being free from advertisements.
The browser will nuzzle well between the two ledger protocols, with Ripple’s Interledger protocol acting as a gateway into other virtual-currency based trading and payment platforms. Interledger will allow the protocol of both XRP and ETH to work together.
XRP proponents are hoping that this recent coming-together of Interledger and Coil via the Puma Browser will provide significant impetus to their highly touted goal of achieving an Internet of Value [IoV]. Research Centre’s tweet pointed out the same:
“Interledger ecosystem keeps growing!
@html5cat announced a new privacy-focused web browser called Puma (@PumaBrowser).
The browser integrates both @Interleder and @Coil to monetize content via streaming payments.
One step closer to the Internet of Value.
In the midst of these positive announcements, XRP has been riding a bullish wave. As the first week of April began, the altcoin, riding on the coattails of BTC, added over $2.3 billion to its market cap in a matter of a few days. During the close of the week, the Nordic Growth Market, a Borse Stuttgart exchange subsidiary introduced Exchange Traded Products [ETPs] tethered to the price of XRP, which further led a 7 percent price pump for XRP.

Basic Attention Token surges by over 6% as Ad Launch nears
The cryptocurrency market appears to be bleeding, however, few altcoins have reported small surges over the past few days, like Basic Attention Token [BAT].
The coin, on April 18 when the entire market was mostly red, surged by over 10% and was trading at $0.3618, its all-time high since July 2018. On April 20, BAT reported a growth of over 6% and was valued at $0.3947, breaking its immediate resistance.
BAT reported a market cap of $493 million and a 24-hour trading volume of $57 million. The coin noted a 6.47% rise in its price over the past day and reported a seven-day surge of 31.20%. BAT continued to register a growth of 1.18% over the past hour.
Crypto-enthusiasts speculate the reason for the surge in prices to be the launch of advertisements on the Brave Browser this month. The BAT token is essentially based on entertainment and can be obtained through a variety of advertising and attention-based services on its platform. According to Twitter user @CryptoNilla,
“They are about to launch ads this month hence the pump.”
BAT was highly traded on ZB.COM exchange as it noted a volume of $8 million via the BAT/USDT pair. The second place was taken by Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange as it reported a trading volume of $7 million via the BAT/BTC pair. IDCM was on the third place with $6 million in volume via the BTA/BTC pair.
