There are just a few tokens that managed to resist the nightmarish 2018 which dragged the crypto markets down and one of them is as you already know, Ripple’s XRP.
The coin not only managed to hold on during such a tough period, but it also surged 300% back in September.
2018 saw most coins going down, but 2019 is expected to be a better year. XRP predictions for this year sound more than positive.
XRP to reach new heights
XRP can increase its value thanks to the company behind it. Ripple has been enjoying tons of achievements, and this will definitely continue in 2019 as well.
For instance, they have been adding lots of new clients, and RippleNet now flaunts more than 200 members. The best thing is that the number keeps growing.
Besides this, there are even more factors that hint at the fact that XRP can surge because now it’s undervalued.
Brad Garlinghouse has recently said that the company will be adding more clients to the ecosystem this year and this will lead to an increase in the coin’s market cap. The token will also boost its price if this happens.
Express.co.uk writes that more crypto experts believe that XRP could reach $2.57 or even $5.14 by the end of 2019.
More bold predictions around XRP
These predictions come right after more even bolder ones have been made.
Smartereum just reported that the cross-border payment market could reach $2 trillion in a couple of years. This figure was reported by McKinsey via Smartereum.
Yoshitaka Kitao, the CEO of SBI Virtual Currencies, he has been bullish regarding a $10 for XRP since 2018.
And, maybe the boldest prediction of all is Smartereum’s.
They recently 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.
