Both Ripple and its digital asset XRP have been doing great in 2018, despite the bearish trend that has been floating above the markets throughout the year. More and more crypto voices are expecting 2019 to be a more bullish year and the overall sentiment is positive.
Price predictions for 2019
We have already addressed the price predictions for XRP for 2019.
Remember that Yoshitaka Kitao, the CEO of SBI Virtual Currencies, he has been bullish regarding a $10 for XRP.
Back in 2018, he tweeted about the price prediction of XRP, and he’s really serious about the recent SBI Virtual Currencies platform.
More important signs that could trigger a surge in XRP’s price are Brad Garlinhouse’s statements. He recently said that there would be more banks what will be using Ripple’s products.
xRapid is currently the only Ripple product that uses XRP to source instant liquidity for cross-border transactions.
In other words, the more xRapid is used, the more XRP is sourced from the supply.
This will lead to the creation of a wave effect that will enhance the value of the coin.
XRP in 10 years from now
Smartereum makes interesting predictions for the price of XRP ten years from now.
It’s true that no one can possibly know where the coin’s price will stand and there have also been a lot of experts who were reluctant to make a price prediction that would surge higher than $500 a token.
Smartereum suggested that the usually conservative experts are claiming that XRP could reach up to $1,000 a coin in just a few years.
“Analysts say prices of up to $10/$15 per XRP by the end of the year, and up to $30 a coin by May 2019 are now thought possible,” they wrote.
The most critical factor in these extremely bold predictions is a deal with China. Head over to Smartethereum’s website to find out what’s this all about.
