The crypto market, in general, has been seeing a rapid recovery for months now, especially when it comes to top coins. Bitcoin has already surpassed the levels it was seeing before the November 2018 market crash, with the current price of $6.852 at the time of writing.

However, the same is not true for XRP, the third largest cryptocurrency, which is still trading below its largest support. While its price did try to test the resistance at $0.312 several times in the past weeks, the coin saw a rejection each time it approached it. Combine this with the fact that XRP’s price against the USD is trading within a descending triangle, and it is easy to understand why many investors are worried.

Is XRP about to start spiraling down?

XRP is a massive coin, despite the fact that its price is low. As such, it has a major impact on the market, and if it were to go down, it is likely that it would take a large portion of the market with it. As mentioned, Bitcoin itself is advancing rapidly. However, historically, such massive uptrends often lead to just as massive potential downtrends.

While TRON (TRX) managed to become one of the most popular projects in the crypto history, the coin itself has been in and out of the list of 10 largest cryptos by market cap several times by now. Recently, it got pushed out of the list once again, although not very far. After briefly holding the 10th spot, it got replaced by Cardano (ADA) which is, similarly to TRON, yet another challenger to Ethereum.

Meanwhile, TRON’s founder and CEO, Justin Sun, appears not to be worried about the current situation. In fact, he recently stated that he believes TRON will climb back up among the top 10 coins within a month. However, he gave another prediction, and this one appears to be quite bold.

Justin Sun’s TRX and BTT predictions

According to Sun, another cryptocurrency that recently joined the TRON ecosystem, BitTorrent (BTT), will soon see a massive surge which will bring it among the top 30 coins. Sun predicts that this will happen at some point during Q2 of this year.

Of course, Sun’s bullishness when it comes…

Sure, some coins are the same, but they are in the minority.

With all that in mind, we will now take a look at top 4 cryptocurrencies that are not even among the 100 largest coins — but they do seem to have the potential to change that in the future.
