The XRP price is seriously undervalued right now. With the current market turmoil brought about by a massive dump of Bitcoin (BTC) and all other digital assets in the crypto markets, our favorite remittance coin is now valued at $0.28 and looks headed to levels below 25 cents. For those who are savvy investors, this is a prime time to pick up some extra XRP. As the saying goes, buy when there are fear and capitulation.
So How Will XRP Price Drop to Zero?
From a financial analysis point of view, the digital asset has dropped by over 90% from its highs back in January. Doing the math, XRP has fallen from its peak levels of $3.82 to $0.28 in the last nine months.
The number of HODLers has surely reduced as their favorite digital asset has dropped by 93% in the same time period. This could be an indicator of a domino effect that could result in the total capitulation of all XRP positions as predicted by John Bollinger a few weeks back. The 25 cent support level could be what is standing between XRP and lower levels below 10 cents.
Secondly, the controversial report by the Satis Group stating that the XRP price will drop to $0.004 in the next ten years, has left many crypto enthusiasts thinking twice about investing in XRP.
The same report states that XRP is a digital asset that has been marketed in all the wrong ways and thus will lead to a natural decline in the markets. The report also states that the centralized nature of XRP could be a cause for the digital asset to drop in value.
Thirdly, despite proof positive evidence that XRP can be classified as being decentralized, the FUD still lingers that it is a security. The XRP community has even highlighted that the comments by SEC Director Hinman with respect to Ethereum included a disclaimer at the bottom which states that:
“The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), as a matter of policy, disclaims responsibility for any private publication or statement by any of its employees. The views expressed herein are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Commission or of the author’s colleagues on the staff of the Commission.”
With this disclaimer, the SEC as an organization has clearly distanced itself from Director Hinman’s comments concerning Ethereum not being a security. The fact remains that the SEC is yet to regulate any digital asset. Therefore, the FUD around XRP is null and void, but the damage has already been done.
Fourthly, as the Ripple company continues to warm up to banks and financial institutions, XRP might be left out of the equation as banks are more inclined to use xCurrent. One can argue that xRapid will catapult XRP to the stratosphere once 100% functional, but this is yet to become a reality. Between now and then, XRP could be headed for more decline in the crypto markets.
In conclusion, the last 24 hours in the crypto markets have been rough and particularly for our favorite remittance coin of XRP. As it continues to drop, the tough question as to whether it will go any lower comes to mind. Stating it will fall to zero is not accurate, but a 97% decline in 9 months is mathematical evidence that it could become a reality.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…

While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.

In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

The crypto market has seen massive growth in the past 3-4 years as it started gaining attention from mass media, which helped in this boom.
From the past 2-3 years, several new cryptocurrency projects were launching in the market. Amid all this, the social media giant – Facebook announced the launch of their cryptocurrency platform, and this news got viral like wildfire. The announcement came forward in June, and the upcoming cryptocurrency is known as Libra, and it’ll come with its dedicated wallet called Calibra.
What is Libra?
Libra is a permissioned blockchain-based digital currency which is being developed under the supervision of Facebook’s vice president, David A. Marcus. The cryptocurrency is under development in partnership with an independent, non-profit member Libra Association. Facebook is the second member of the project, and these companies aim to use Facebook’s user base for the promotion of the digital currency when it is launched. The transactions and the cryptocurrency will be managed and cryptographically entrusted by the Libra Association.
