Nik Bougalis, one of the lead developers on the Ripple team, confirmed the release of Rippled 1.0.0. Rippled is the name given to the core server of the XRP peer-to-peer network.

Yesterday, on Github, the official Rippled GitHub was set to version 1.0.0 rc1. Rc1 stands for Release Candidate 1, which is known as ‘going silver’. It signifies that the XRP Ledger product is close to being a market item and coming out of its beta stage.

In a response to a tweet by CryptoEspi who picked up on this development and tweeted it to Bougalis, he said:

“What updates? It’s the release candidate for 1.0.”

When asked about the eventual release date for the 1.0.0 product, Bougalis said:

“Software is a bit like a soufflé. You can’t rush it. It’s ready when it’s ready. With that said. I think this particular soufflé will be out of the oven soon.”

This would imply that the software is ready for a non-beta release, becoming a market product and pushing adoption rates to sky high. The Rippled server is at the basis of the XRP Ledger, and advancements in the quality and development of Rippled would mean that the XRP token is also more secure, easy to use, and efficient.

The GitHub page clearly shows the shift of the build version number from ‘1.0.0-b5’ to ‘1.0.0-rc1’. News of the 1.0.0 beta of Ripple have been circulating for some time now, and official confirmation from the development team shows that the beta will complete and a finished product will be launched.

The event also lines up with other significant events in the Ripple space, with May 15th being the date for Ripple’s famed community event. This event features Snoop Dogg as a guest, leading to rumors that the rapper will cut the ribbon for the 1.0.0 update.

Ninja Matt, a Twitter user said:

“my prediction stands that Snoop will be cutting the ceremonial ribbon on the 15th. xRapid production live with Santander, Western Union (WU presenting at another conference on the 15th as well……)…..”

Munch, another Twitter user went along with the soufflé simile and said:

“It needs perfect timing and temperature of the oven The good one worths the wait Especially the one that would change the entire perspective of dessert ecosystem”

The largest country in the world has a positive outlook towards Blockchain technology.

The State Council of China has demanded that authorities need to speed up the development of Blockchain technology. The country’s central administrative branch of government first issued this order on 4th May 2018. It addressed various strategies that required continued reformation of the Guangdong Pilot Free Trade Zone.

The Guangdong Pilot Free Trade Zone is a free-trade zone is in the province of Guangdong, China sandwiched between Hong Kong and Macau to build a vast international free-trading market. It was authorized by the State Council in 2014 and officially launched on April 2015.

An official document stated:

“To build a regional equity market in Guangdong, according to the opening up of the capital market, timely introduction of Hong Kong, Macao and international investment institutions to participate in transactions. We will vigorously develop financial technology and accelerate the research and application of blockchain and big data technologies under the premise of legal compliance.”

However, the document does not reveal or contain any details on the extent of blockchain technology that will be used in the Free-Trade zone.

According to China’s Ministry of Information and Technology, the Guangdong division has 71 blockchain startups. In 2016, the concept of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology was introduced as a part of their 13th five-year economic development plan from 2016 -2020.

The Bank of China [BoC] recently announced the initiative to irradiate poverty through Blockchain technology in the region of Tibet, an autonomous region in China.

supreme-n00b, a Reddit user commented:

“China has done this many times before. It’s not that they’re scared of new technology. It’s that they have the population to turn their own copy technology into the status quo. Why open yourself to Twitter when you can create a billion-dollar brand by forcing everyone to use Weibo. Crypto is no different. The Chinese are going to choose and run with a coin and put it on WeChat – instant use by hundreds of millions of people. Yet another billion – perhaps trillion in this case -dollar tech. The biggest mistake the Russians and Indians ever made was allowing western internet access to their people.”

“This seems pretty familiar. China bans Google service and creates their own search engine Baidu. China bans Facebook and creates their own social network Qzone. Next step – own internal cryptocurrency? And this won’t even cause any surprise”

‘The U.S SEC must regulate the cryptocurrency market to eliminate the bad actors’ – says Ran Neu Ner

‘The U.S SEC must regulate the cryptocurrency market to eliminate the bad actors’ - says Ran Neu Ner, the CNBC host

CNBC Fast Money, hosted by Melissa Lee, had Ran Neu Ner as the guest this time. Ran Neu Ner is a famous host of CNBC Africa’s Crypto Trader show and is the Founder of OnChain Capital.

The main topic of discussion was about “Is cryptocurrency market being manipulated?”

According to Ran, in the past, it was easier to manipulate the cryptocurrency market because there were a very few exchanges, a few on-ramps, and off-ramps. However, today with an overall market cap of $330 billion, it is a bit more difficult, because there are many exchanges and the volume of the digital currencies are much higher.

He also mentioned about the recent tweets that exposed a group, who is manipulating small penny tokens and how they got exposed for manipulating small e-liquid tokens.

Melissa further raised a doubt about how the market manipulation is occurring in deepest markets like London Interbank Offered Rate [LIBOR] and compared it with the U.S cryptocurrency market.

Ran mentioned that he is not sure about it, because the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission [SEC] has not regulated Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Therefore, there are no regulated acts, under which the illegal terms can be questioned.

He says:

“what is the problem of driving the prices up? It is illegal in terms of what act? We are not a currency, not a commodity, we don’t know what we are.”

Further, they discussed, due to the uncertain market values of BTC and other coins, should the traders be cautious about what the SEC, U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission [CFTC] or the U.S Department of Justice [DOJ] is going to look at.

Ran says, when the SEC and other organizations come up with regulations, it is going to open the floodgates for new money to come in. He thinks that regulations are eminent and he expects SEC to quote new regulations for cryptocurrency and hopes that everyone will follow it.

Also, he mentioned that he would encourage crackdowns because they can catch the bad actors who create a lack of trust. To obtain a real asset class with real people, eliminating bad actors is very important.

Ran believes that people across the U.S are waiting for the guidance of SEC and they have a huge part to play in regulating cryptocurrencies, while other countries are already looking into various aspects of cryptocurrency and have started accepting them.

A cryptocurrency enthusiast says:

Always an interesting conversation when it comes to manipulation. The #Silver market has had a conspiracy theory about being manipulated for more than 10 years.”

Anthony Matthew, a business analyst says:

“BTCUSD barely broke lower than 7500 all day, despite well-known news of cryptotrade manipulation and DOJ + CFTC investigation.  I feel like I am trading in the stock market again, so I am buying Bitcoin at 7500.”

A cryptocurrency miner named Chad commented:

“Maybe the DOJ and @CFTC will crack down on manipulative paid Roger Ver shilling appearances too”
