XRP Price Today
The bears lost control of the market
XRP/USD calm after the storm; a reversal is in the offing. According to Fxstreet analysis; Ripple’s failure to sustain growth past $0.32 resulted in a trend reversal that broke past $0.31.
XRP bulls are intentional in pushing the price above $0.32 hurdle.
There is a semblance of calmness in the cryptocurrency market on Friday. The calmness comes after a flash drop occurred yesterday where cryptocurrencies like Ripple, Ethereum and Bitcoin explored lower levels. For example, Ripple’s failure to sustain growth past $0.32 resulted in a trend reversal that broke past $0.31 support and tested the key support at $0.30 as discussed in this price update.
However, the bears lost control of the market slightly above $0.30 leading to a quick comeback. XRP/USD pulled above $0.31 but failed to move past the 50 SMA 15-minutes. A lower correction ensued moments after before the price found balance above $0.3080.
Bullish Predictions: Bitcoin to $28K, Litecoin to $650, XRP to $4 and ETH to $2,090
Dailyhodl reported, a crypto trader who calls himself ScienceGuy9489 is back with a series of bullish predictions on the price of the four leading cryptocurrencies by market cap.
The trader’s Bitcoin prediction recently shot to the top of Reddit/Cryptocurrency, comparing Bitcoin’s price during the 2014-to-2015 bear market to the current state of affairs from 2018 to 2019. CoinDesk analyst Omkar Godbole is on the same page, concluding that if past is prologue, a long-term transition to a bull market may be on the horizon.
“Bitcoin produced a similar pattern during the previous bear market witnessed in 2014–2015. More importantly, the upside break of that falling channel, confirmed in October 2015, was followed by a two-year bull market.
Therefore, a potential upside break of the latest falling channel could be considered a sign of a long-term bearish-to-bullish trend change.”
But ScienceGuy isn’t settling for just one prediction. The trader has taken things a step further over the last two weeks, outlining four extremely bullish predictions on just how high he believes BTC, ETH, XRP and LTC are set to rise. According to his analysis, the results could bring Bitcoin to $28K, Litecoin to $650, XRP to $4 and ETH to $2,090.
XRP interest goes up
Ripple (XRP) Bulls Weak but Japanese Investors are Confident. The hype element specific to cryptocurrencies meant 90 percent of surveyed individuals got involved with cryptocurrencies in late 2017. That’s around the same time when almost all digital assets “mooned” according to data collected by Japan’s GMO Internet Group.
Ethereumworldnews reported that, even though 2018 was a tough year for crypto asset holders it is encouraging that more than 50 percent of the 11,000 surveyed had Ripple (XRP) in their portfolio and were convinced 2019 would be a better year for XRP. Better still, 70 percent of those polled were of the opinion that aside from speculation, cryptocurrencies are long-term investments. 95 percent had invested more than $9,500 in digital assets but the number could rise thanks to SBI Group’s effort and their dedication of supporting Ripple Inc as they market XRP.
But it is not only in Japan where cryptocurrencies can be a source of revenue. An Indian exchange, Coindcx, has rolled out a program where account holders can lend their assets and earn interest. Dubbed the Dcxlend, five coins including XRP are available with monthly interest of 0.75 percent for XRP.
All coins, the exchange said, will be “lent through Dcxlend will be used to provide leverage to users on Dcxmargin” and “the interest rate varies dynamically and goes up to a maximum of 2 percent, according to market dynamics — demand and supply.”
Ripple vs JPM Coin
Ripple Might Lose Its Banking Partnerships Due to the JPM Coin Phenomena. Coingape reported that, JPM Coin caused an uproar in the cryptocurrency and financial market with its introduction of the JPM coin. However, the chaos was non-directed; the purpose of JPM Coin was unknown. Moreover, its contribution or competition to the cryptocurrencies was also unclear.
Nevertheless, JPM coin received harsh criticism from the crypto community including Ripple’s CEO Brad Garlinghouse. The reason cited for the same was lack of interoperability. The general perception is that JPM coin is as an isolated centralized cryptocurrency. However, it seems that there is more to it that it meets the eyes.
