Latest Metaco News
Sep 15, 2023
3 mins read Dogecoin (DOGE) users who operate on top of Apple’s iOS devices have been advised to update the software to the latest version, as a security vulnerability was found. Ripple acquired Fortress Trust, its second acquisition during 2023, after buying Metaco for $250 million. This sent a lot of interest to the XRP (XRP) crypto. However, Everlodge (ELDG) has caught the most attention from investors and traders, as it’s projected to grow by 35x at launch following its disruption of the real-estate space. Summary XRP will reach $0.79 by the end of 2023 Everlodge to surge by 35x at launch XRP (XRP) Price Projection After Ripple Acquired Fortress Trust XRP (XRP) is set to reach new heights. This is because Ripple has acquired another company. They’ve now acquired Fortress Trust, a crypto company with a financial license in Nevada. Back in May, Ripple also acquired Metaco, which is a crypto custodian, for $250 million. The XRP crypto is falling below its $0.50 level, and its oversold condition could put it in a prime position to experience a rebound. Moreover, the XRP price has lost all of its post-ruling gains, although the indicator suggests that it’s so oversold that it has to recover in the near future. With this in mind, the 30-day moving average has not fallen under the 200-day moving average. Based on the XRP price prediction, the cryptocurrency will climb to a maximum value of $0.79 by the end of the year. Dogecoin (DOGE) Future Price Performance The Dogecoin (DOGE) app users on Apple’s iOS devices are being urged to update the software. Specifically, Citizen Lab, a cybersecurity research organization, found a significant security vulnerability. This vulnerability lets attackers compromise iOS devices without any user interaction. The exploit is known as BLASTPASS and involves malicious PassKit attachments sent through iMessage. It affects anyone running iOS version 16.6. Apple has, however, since issued an update to address the issue. As for the current Dogecoin price, it’s trading at $0.063, bringing its overall market cap to $8.9 billion. Moreover, the volume of the Dogecoin crypto during the past day is at $132 million, indicating a significant level of interest in it despite the mixed recent performance. Dogecoin is now approaching its current price as a support level, and there is potential that it can surge moving forward. According to the Dogecoin price prediction, it is projected to reach a maximum point of value of $0.098 by the end of the year. How Everlodge (ELDG) Can Disrupt the Real Estate Space Everlodge is an upcoming project that utilizes an innovative approach to solve key issues found in the real estate space. For example, if someone aims to purchase a property such as a home or luxury hotel, they need millions of dollars of upfront capital. But what if it was available for as little as $100 whilst also retaining value appreciation and rental income opportunities? This is where Everlodge fits into the picture. It combines a marketplace with fractional luxury property ownership and timeshare technology. By digitizing and then minting properties as NFTs, they can get fractionalized. As a result, anyone can start creating a diversified portfolio of different properties. There’s also a Rewards Club, where anyone can get free nightly stays and can even choose to sell them. Moreover, there’s the ELDG token. Anyone can stake the token for passive income. During Stage 2 of the presale, the token trades at $0.016. Based on the Everlodge price prediction, it can surge by 35x at launch. Find out more about the Everlodge (ELDG) Presale
