Question 1

Explain the Penny cryptocurrencies in your own words. Advantages and disadvantages.

What are penny cryptocurrency?

Penny cryptocurrency are cheap coin that trade below $1 and also, every coin that are recently lunched is considered a penny cryptocurrency. For example Bitcoin and Ether, are once a penny cryptocurrency because when they were first lunched their value was less than $1 before they become popular and coin everyone buy into. Another example is Dodgecoin, Dodgecoin is a penny cryptocurrency that was lunched recently.

To pinpoint on the meaning of penny cryptocurrency, penny cryptocurrency are cheap coin that is not up to $1. We can also call it a recent lunched coin that are trading under $1. Penny cryptocurrency Is a level that every popular coin like Bitcoin and Ethereum as passed and every new coin will also pass because a coin don't just start trading from $1,000. It is a gradual process.

Question 2

For you: What will be the best Penny to invest in this 2021? Explain and show evidence.

If we should talk about the best penny cryptocurrency to invest in 2021, Dogecoin is an example of a penny cryptocurrency to invest in.

Tradingview of Dogecoin till date

The screenshot aboove is taken from coinmarketcap showing the growth of Dogecoin for the last one year. Dogecoin price as been fluctuating since it was introduced but social media as really help dogecoin to gain more holders. Dodgecoin price shot up from $0.46 to $0.54, before reducing back to around $0.50 when Elon Musk ask is over 53million follower on Twitter that if Tesla should accept Dogecoin. Dogecoin as quickly developed its own online community and as also reach a market capitalization of US$85,314,347,523 on May 5, 2021.


Another screenshot above is screenshoted from coinmarketcap. It show the information about Dogecoin. Dogecoin is ranked 6th on coinmarketcap and it value keeps going up. The present value of Dogecoin is $0.03662 it as reduce but I believe it will shot back up because this is how Bitcoin started, it was goin up and down shocking it holders. it trading volume is more than 176,% in just 24h and other information the screenshot shows the possibility of how Dogecoin can increase.


Futhermore, Dogecoin is a good coin that I believe it value will go more higher in 2021. Presently we are in Bearish market all coin value are decreasing but I believe by the time we get to bullish market it will seriously shot up. The total market cap of Dogecoin during when I was doing my assignment is $45,586,417,586.37. this is how Bitcoin and Ether started and I believe dogecoin will be a rare gem for everyone holding it in there wallet. The penny cryptocurrency "Dogecoin" is present in best cryptocurrency exchange like Binance, Bitmex, Haobi and so on.

Question 3

Do a Ripple (XRP) analysis. Show screenshots. Would you invest right now? Explain.

Ripple is a company that was first establish in 2012 and co-founded by Chris Larsen and Jed McCaleb. It a technology that act as cryptocurrency and also a digital payment network for transactions. Ripple is a company while XRP is a cryptocurrency token. Ripple is a company that is behind XRP because they work together.


We can see the above screenshot, it shows the company that that runs on Ripplenet. It's a system for payment settlement and also serve as a network for currency exchange that can process transaction around the word. Ripple is a remittance system that is like SWIFT system itcan be use for international money and security transfers that is used by financial middlemen dealing across currencies and banks. Whenever users make a transaction using ripple next they dicduct a small amount of XRP as a commission fee.


Ripple is ranked as the top 5 among the most valuable blockchain tokens by market cap. Ripple use a less energy for Transaction than Bitcoin. Ripple was once competing with Bitcoin because of the decentralisation, Bitcoin rely on decentralized system. Bitcoin is based and built on blockchain technology whole Ripple does not use blockchain but uses a distributor consensus ledger and using a network of validating server and cryptocurrency token call a XRP.

Let's pinpoint on the meaning of XRP, XRP is a token that is used on ripple network to facilitate transfer of money between different currencies. XRP is currency that is partly managed by Ripple. XRP can be sent to anywhere or from any digital wallet irrespective of international borders. It is also use for representing transfer value across Ripple network. Sometime user's refers to it as Ripple.

However, when XRP was first lunched in 2021, Ripple marketed XRP cheaper, faster as an alternative to Bitcoin because transactions settle in seconds. XRP's could archive this because it's infrastructure is centralized and not decentralized. It does not use proof of work and the consensus algorithm used by Bitcoin to precess transaction. But XRP transactions rely on a consensus protocol in order to validate account transactions and balances on the system. The general agreement works to improve the integrity of the system by preventing double-spending.

Ripple which is also reffers to as XRP, as per market size and capital September 2020, is the fourth-largest cryptocurrency after Bitcoin, Ethereum and USD Tether. The Ripple network now has billions of dollars’ worth of crypto on it's account. It's also the core owner of Ripple (XRP), the digital coin that increased its value 40 times in 2017 alone. On September 2013 when XRP was lunched, the value of XRP which is also known as Ripple worth 0.014 dollars but today which is May 20, 2021 the worth of XRP was $1.20 when I screenshoted the image above but shortly when I went back to check like few minute after is now $1.25. it as really increase compared to when it was created.

The Uses of Ripple (XRP)

Ripple which some people known as XRP uses are listed below.

  • Exchanging of currency -
    This platform allow it user's to change currency with low commission fee. For Example: you can exchange your XRP with any other currency using ripple network.

  • International Transaction -
    Ripple allow it user's to make transactions of assest to any part of the world with a record time of four to five seconds.

  • Payment Settlement -
    Transaction confirmation are incredibly fast on Ripple network. So, it is use for fast settlement.

  • Payment Ecosystem -
    It uses payment Ecosystem as it allow us to create our own currency.

Would you invest right now? Explain.

I would have love to invest but the only reason why i may not invest in XRP cryptocurrency is that it's centralization in respect of bank which make it risky because bank doesn't make transaction on blockchain they rely on a particular authority. It trasaction is not transparent and it can not really be trusted. Also the issue of SEC, XRP have issue with SEC which as not been fully resolved, it generate distrust in the community and the best way to reduce the disturst and for the price to shot up is for them to resolve the issue that makes SEC to sue them.

And even if I will invest, I will make sure I invest with an amount am capable of losing not the one that will shock me if I lose.
