In 2013, the old development team decided to leave the OpenCoin project. In the process of recruiting a new team, the future director of XRP, Chris Larsen, joined the company. Immediately after that, it was decided to rename the OpenCoin corporation to Ripple Labs, as well as to change the main direction of the company’s activities, focusing on working with the banking sector.

The problem of cryptocurrencies and quantum computers is currently being raised more and more often in the community. And although in the near future, and most likely not only in the near future, the capabilities of quantum computers will not be enough to crack the encryption of existing cryptocurrencies, however, the most commonly used signatures of RSA, DSA and ECDSA, theoretically, remain quantum unstable. Although the open nature of blockchain allows you to change the source code, preventing the possibility of hacking, but it will take time.

Blockchain is a chain of blocks containing information, built according to certain rules, having a continuous character. In simple terms, the blockchain is similar to the electronic version of an ordinary magazine, which keeps records of certain values, products or materials.
There are two main branches of the block chain: centralized and decentralized. The implementation of the latter is clearly shown by the example of bitcoin. In fact, it was the first cryptocurrency that became an example of the use of blockchain in practice.

The rapid growth in popularity of the distributed finance sector in cryptocurrencies has enabled developers to look for various applications of their ideas for blockchain. One of the most significant events in DeFi was the appearance of Flash Laons, or “fast loans”.
Flash Loans (or instant loan) is a feature available in some popular distributed finance protocols, with which a user can take out an instant, short—term loan without collateral. The main condition of Flash Loans is the repayment of the loan in the same block of the distributed registry where it was received.

Tokens are usually put on a par with classic cryptocurrencies. However, it cannot be said that this type of digital asset is a crypt in the classical sense. In order to understand the difference between these two tools, it is necessary to figure out which forms of tokens are the most popular of the existing ones.
We have already considered the use of blockchain in projects other than cryptocurrencies, however, tokens cannot exist in isolation from the latter.

For many centuries, gold has acted as an instrument of wealth accumulation, as well as a means of payment and confirmation of its status. Now this precious metal has found its application in medicine, electronics, and other industrial fields. However, gold has not lost the role of reserves and accumulation of value. If we take into account that the amount of metal on the planet is limited, and the need for it is only increasing, then we can say with confidence that in the future the value of gold will only grow.

Last week was quite positive for cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin overcame the psychological limit of resistance at $ 21,800, after which it showed a rapid growth above $ 24,000, however, with a rapid correction. Do not expect such swings this week.
If we talk about the fundamental reasons, then everything is quite prosaic here and no significant events are expected. Investors are already quite used to political upheavals, and new decisions of various governments are already mostly embedded in the prices of financial assets not only in the cryptocurrency market, but also on stock and classic currency exchanges.
