XRP is the third largest cryptocurrency by market cap, which currently sits at around $13.5 billion. The coin also has a price of $0.325316 at the time of writing, after seeing a significant price correction of 4% in the last 24 hours.
Just like many other cryptocurrencies, XRP has seen massive losses during the 2018 bear market. However, this falling wedge seems to have seen a real breakout in 2019, as the crypto winter started to let go, and a lot of coins saw significant price recoveries.
XRP’s falling wedge was much more difficult to stop, which can be seen on its long-term chart. But, the recent bull runs allowed numerous cryptocurrencies to finally see growth, and XRP is definitely one of them. The charts also show that the coin’s falling wedge has seen a breakout, which is an excellent thing for the future of XRP’s price.
However, for the coin’s price to truly turn and stay bullish, XRP needs to see larger volumes. The experts believe that this is the key for a new rally, one which would allow XRP to reach true recovery.
XRP price performance and predictions
As mentioned, XRP had struggled to start growing even when most other cryptocurrencies were drawn in a number of bull runs. While the coin has been acting the same as others until mid-February, it is clear that the bull runs that came around this time had a lesser effect on XRP than they did on most other coins. Apart from one big surge that included even XRP, on February 18th, the coin was mostly going down.
Whenever there was a bull run, XRP would start joining in at the last second, which prevented it from seeing major gains before the correction would take place. The coin also mostly ignored rallies that took place in March, prevented from going up by a strong resistance at $0.32, while its strongest support held at $0.30.
This all changed on April 1st when XRP saw a massive spike up — one which was mirrored by nearly every other coin on the market. Bitcoin itself surged by around $1,000 on this occasion, and while XRP’s growth was nowhere near as big, the coin still managed to break through multiple resistances and reach $0.372 by April 3rd. This was the breakout that the XRP community was waiting for, one that allowed the coin to finally move away from the resistance level at $0.32.
However, XRP soon saw a correction as well, dropping below $0.36. After spending days just below this level, its price started seeing another large decline on April 10th, when it attempted to break this resistance. The price rejection forced XRP down, and the only thing stopping the coin from seeing even larger drops now is its resistance-turned-support at $0.32.
Interestingly enough, XRP trade continues to remain quite high, with a daily volume of $1.38 billion. However, this is still not enough for the volume-driven rally, which is necessary for the coin to continue its growth. If such a rally were to arrive, and if the volumes did go up, it is believed that XRP could potentially even double its price with ease. While the coin is currently pretty much back where it started on April 1s, this might not be the end, as the market is generally still considered bullish at the moment.
The correction will pass soon enough, and the coins will see growth once again, and that will be XRP’s chance to surge back up and break through its resistances, with the largest ones being at $0.36, $0.39, and $0.46.

XNO Token of Xeno NFT Hub listed on Bithumb Korea Exchange
Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //
Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.
Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.
The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.
NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.
NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…
Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?
2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for. While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory. When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion. But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.
I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness. Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion. Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special. Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.
Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology
It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different. Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…

He also added “This does not mean we will prohibit other types of NFTs from our ecosystem However, it simply means that XENO’s efforts as a company will be targeted into these verticals initially as a cohesive business approach.”
