    XRP, Chainlink and This Crypto Project Launching Bitcoin Smart Contracts Are ‘About To Go Crazy’, Says Altcoin Daily

    Altcoin Daily host Austin Arnold is listing three altcoins that he says are “about to go crazy”.

    In a new video, Austin tells his one million YouTube subscribers that the altcoins in question are Dfinity Foundation’s Internet Computer (ICP), the bridge currency XRP, and blockchain oracle network Chainlink (LINK).

     

    Kicking off the list with Internet Computer, Austin says that the crypto project focused on becoming a decentralized global computing platform, is planning to introduce smart contract functionality to Bitcoin.

    Internet Computer smart contracts will gain access to Bitcoin liquidity and Bitcoin will gain powerful new smart contract functionality without the need for insecure and cumbersome trusted bridging services.

    So this could be big – a DeFi [Decentralized Finance] ecosystem for Bitcoin is a major industry initiative. It would mean the world’s most popular cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, could be used for lending, yield farming, derivatives, liquidity pools and more.”

    Turning to XRP, Austin says the developer Ripple Labs has encountered a setback in the lawsuit filed against it by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

    “…Ripple filed a motion back in August 27th requesting information about whether SEC employees had purchased and traded Bitcoin, Ethereum and XRP. The United States Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn rejected this motion on Tuesday…

    …so what this means to you as a potential XRP holder is that Ripple will have to find another way to prove to the SEC that XRP is not a security. That’s of course the SEC’s point of view. They’re the ones that are suing Ripple and the case is heating up.”

    In the case of Chainlink, Austin says that the blockchain oracle network’s recent integration with decentralized cold storage aggregator Coldstack is bullish.

    “…big green flag for LINK holders. Here’s the reason Chainlink was chosen – because in their [Coldstack] words ‘Chainlink is the industry standard in blockchain oracles’.”

    Austin also quotes Coldstack’s CEO Alexander Shishow showering praise on Chainlink.

    “In a direct quote from Coldstack CEO… ’There really isn’t any substitute for Chainlink – if we want to provide the best data storage solutions for our users, then it makes sense to use the best oracle service provider in the industry.’”
