XRP (XRP): The Big Bull Is Coming

‘The past is the past’ is a phrase any crypto investor should embrace as we look back at the tumultuous last six months we have had in the crypto markets. We have seen Bitcoin (BTC) skyrocket to interstellar levels of $20,000 only to drop to recent lows of $5,800 that has caused heartache all over the crypto verse. With respect to our favorite coin of XRP (XRP), the road has not been easy either.

The remittance coin had also gathered interstellar speed on January when it was rumored that Coinbase was going to add the coin on its exchange. XRP managed to peak at levels of $3.82 but would be valued at $0.42 by June 29th: the lowest value all year. This is primarily due to the fact that the listing on Coinbase did not materialize. The Coinbase conversation is still around with Brad Garlinhouse believing that it is high time Coinbase listed XRP.

But things are looking up and a bull run is around the corner.

The team at the parent company of Ripple, have decided the time is now to rebrand the coin by now simply calling it XRP. This rebranding is as a result of the company facing three lawsuits of securities fraud by disgruntled traders who keep claiming that XRP is a security. However, since XRP was created in 2004 and Ripple in 2012, there is no direct link between the two apart from the fact that XRP was given to Ripple to use it as a utility coin in its Ripple network. The rebranding is sure to rejuvenate the coin in the markets as it walks off the last 6 months of continual decline.

A second reason why XRP will run with the bulls is the said 3 pending lawsuits. It is said that bad publicity is actually good in that people notice whatever is being bashed around. In this case, XRP is being criticized left, right and center. This means that the coin is now known by more people and they are watching from the sidelines to see how the lawsuits go. If they have a positive outcome (not a security), they will snatch up some XRP faster than greased lightning. If it is declared a security, they will still grab some XRP because it can now be traded in the traditional stock markets where it will have access to the trillions of dollars we are all waiting for in the crypto markets in the form of Institutional Investors.

Thirdly, the crypto markets have been described numerous times as being in their infancy. Some experts believe it will peak in 2022. Therefore, the ‘game’ is just getting started and only the early birds will be buying that Lambo in a few months or years. The early believers of new technology are first viewed as insane and later branded as prophets when things turn out being profitable in the later future.

Therefore, and in conclusion, the only direction for XRP heading forward is only up. The crypto markets seem to have bottomed out on June 29th when Bitcoin was valued at $5,800. With a new month, comes new hope. Coincidentally, the new month marks a new chapter of the year: the second half that leads to the Holiday season. We all remember how the markets reacted during Thanksgiving and into Christmas last year. History will surely repeat itself this year.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout: What’s Next?

Ripple XRP mega breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout that we were calling for happened and happened much quicker than anyone expected. As we said yesterday:

Nonetheless, IF, Ripple is capable of going ‘topside’ of the .38 figure at any point in the days/weeks ahead, such development, should it occur, would likely trigger its next advance into the .42 – .47 zone, representing a 30-40% move from present levels. On the flip-side, the .25 – .26 area should offer short-term potential support.

XRP is now sitting at .51704  as we write this article this morning, representing gains of 61% since we alerted our readers and our Global Elite email newsletter members.

Ripple XRP Mega Breakout

The Ripple XRP mega breakout is significant because it’s the first time XRP has been above its 50-day moving average since May. Right now, the RSI is approaching 80, so we are in overbought territory and we expect the price to consolidate around the .42 to .47 level before resuming its uptrend.

While some are looking at this as an opportunity to short XRP, we are not of that camp. While some can book some profits and use a trailing stop, any integration of XRP with xRapid has the ability to create a tremendous move in XRP. As Travis Kling said this week on the Off the Chain podcast with Anthony Pompliano, XRP could be the quickest five-bagger investors…

Litecoin Cash (LCC): The potential mover?

Litecoin Cash

Litecoin underwent a hard fork in the past, and that is what led to the creation of Litecoin Cash. Bitcoin has also experienced a hard fork, which has led to the creation of Bitcoin Cash, so this trend is not necessarily brand new.

Forks have occurred pretty often now in the cryptocurrency community, and the perception is that it probably will continue to, as long as the need (forks are often created to overcome issues faced by the originals) remains there.

While the market has been bearish for most of the year, it has been showing some definite signs of life, especially when we look at the kind of price action that has been happening with Ripple recently. Litecoin is also rising in anticipating of its hard fork, which is to be expected.

For those who are unaware, Litecoin Cash was created earlier this year. 10 Litecoin Cash was given to every investor who had 1 Litecoin – and that one move, it’s easy to see, was very massive concerning value.

Charlie Lee, the founder of Litecoin, has come out against LiteCoin Cash, calling it a scam. Many cryptocurrency influencers have come out against Litecoin cash, although there are still others that believe that this is only because the project threatens them.

XLM vs XRP

The digital asset of XRP, did something spectacular on the 18th of September when it shocked the crypto-markets by rising in value by 21%. In a time period that was less than 5 hours, XRP spiked from levels of $0.273 to those of $0.332 and has continued rising. The digital asset is currently valued at $0.36.

xRapid Factor

The reason for the sharp increment in value of XRP was news that the Ripple company was going to launch xRapid in the next month or so. This was after the firm’s head of Regulatory relations for Asia-Pacific and the Middle East, Sagar Sarabhai, made the following comments during a CNBC interview on the 17th of September:

“I am very confident that in the next one month or so you will see some good news coming in where we launch the product live in production.”

Stellar’s Cross-Border Payments

The news of Ripple launching xRapid has come 2 weeks after the Stellar project and IBM, announced that they were entering the industry of cross-border payments through their new service known as IBM Blockchain World-Wire. The new payment settlement service has been quoted as being ‘near instant’ meaning that it will probably rival the transactions time seen in the xRapid pilot tests of 2 – 3 minutes earlier on in the year.
