From the long-term success of Bitcoin to a new case of cross-border use at Ripple, here are some of the stories that are breaking up in the world of Crypto.
Tim Draper, a venture capital billionaire and Bitcoin bull, claims that he believes Bitcoin will outweigh the legal currencies and will prove much more stable in the long run. At the Web Summit technical conference in Lisbon, said Draper,
"We will see every kind of volatility: a bitcoin is still a bitcoin, it's just all these other political currencies that will be very volatile against it as they slowly disappear from our use."
Draper also reiterated his belief that the price of Bitcoin will reach $ 250,000 over the next few years.
"My forecast for $ 250,000 by 2022 – maybe 2023, but at that interval – is absolutely solid, but I'm not so sure how we'll get there."
Ethereum has set a free date for the next update.
In its last group conference, the developers established January 16 as the launch date for Constantinople. The planned upgrade includes a number of optimizations and reduces the mineral reward from three ETHs to two ETHs per block.
The Japanese financial giant MUFG states that it will use Ripple's proprietary payment technology to create a new cross-border payment service between Japan and Brazil.
Meanwhile, the programmer who works to bring XRP transactions to Amazon Alexa has launched a closed beta test.

The founder of NEO, Da Hongfei, believes that excessive government regulation has significantly slowed the adoption of blockchain and cryptocurrency.
"In the early days, people expected to see the blockchain applied to the financial industry, as the new technology could disrupt the traditional financial sector, but the implementation has undergone regulatory barriers as the industry Financial is strictly regulated almost anywhere in the world.There are only two ways to integrate the blockchain in the financial sector by cooperating with a licensed financial institution … or you can bypass the license by doing something that does not need a license … In essence, the blockchain can barely survive within the existing regulatory system. "
