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.

Secondlythe 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.

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

We are now halfway through 2019, and the situation in the crypto space is better than ever in the past year. Numerous cryptos are seeing large gains, often cut by brief periods of stagnation or small corrections, but the overall sentiment is obviously bullish.

Bitcoin sits way above the $8k mark, and while it struggles to go beyond $8,700, it is still trying to grow. Investors and analysts are quite bullish regarding the foreseeable future, and a lot of altcoins are expected to follow BTC in this regard. However, today, we would like to talk about one particular altcoin — TRON (TRX) — as well as why it is likely to go big in June.

TRON’s progress so far

As many people in and out of TRON community know, TRX is not a project that often sits still. It is rich with announcements, particularly when it comes to his CEO, Justin Sun, whose enthusiastic tweets often seem like hype building to many.

However, TRON made some massive progress in 2018, which was the worst year cryptocurrencies have ever seen. This is not something that can be achieved through hype alone, and the project needs to have true quality and value in order to see such massive development in the middle of the longest and harshest crypto winter in…

IOTA

The crypto space is erupting once again, and if popular predictions are correct — the growth is only starting. However, in the vast sea of altcoins that hold the massive potential to go big in the future, we would like to set IOTA aside as one of the coins that might blow up quite soon.

As always, there are no guarantees of this, as the crypto space still lacks regulations, and remains highly volatile. To see proof of this, all you need to do is look at Bitcoin, which goes up by $1,000 within a day, only to slowly drop by $700 in the following week, and then repeat the process. In other words, there is still a lot of uncertainty regarding any project, and that includes IOTA.

However, even with all of that in mind, many are quite optimistic about this particular project, especially after a recent announcement. The announcement in question indicates that IOTA is about to see a massive upgrade. In most cases, this would be more than enough of a reason to expect the coin to start performing better. But, in IOTA’s case, this is nearly a guarantee that it will.

The update is believed to carry a lot of fixes for a lot of problems that traders and investors have been reporting for a while. No crypto is perfect, and since IOTA is…
