XRP Price Prediction for 2021, 2022-2025: Will Ripple go up? ⚡️

0


Ripple XRP is one of the world’s foremost cryptos – and one of the most intriguing. Unlike Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other big names, it does not market itself with its decentralization. Instead, the crypto is closely associated with several banks, investment companies, and organizations worldwide.

This may seem counterproductive when many traders believe that the biggest selling point of cryptocurrencies is their freedom of influence from outside companies. However, crypto experts are increasingly arguing that it could be the key to Ripple’s success. 

At the end of 2020, the company faced an SEC lawsuit that put the Ripple future under threat. Making a Ripple price prediction has become challenging for experts and common investors. Why is Ripple going up and down? How high will Ripple go? Let’s find out!

The article covers the following subjects:

What Is Ripple Crypto and the History of XRP?

Ripple or XRP: are they synonyms or different terms? If you are new to the crypto market, you may have such questions in your mind. Thus, we will start our price guide with basic terms. It will allow you to differentiate Ripple’s products.

In order for traders to understand Ripple price predictions, it is important to know what Ripple XRP is and why it differs from most other cryptos on the market.

Put simply, Ripple is a company that provides a payment protocol that can be compared to a payment system, money transfer network, and currency exchange. The protocol works with digital currencies, fiat money, and commodities. XRP is the protocol’s internal coin. 

If you want to have a deeper understanding of the Ripple topic, check the following terms. 

  • XRP or Ripple is a cryptocurrency that’s powered by RippleNet. Financial institutions use the coin to provide fast transactions with low fees. 

  • RippleNet represents a payment platform. It’s based on the distributed ledger database of XRP Ledger. Ripple operates the digital platform. RippleNet Cloud is used to deal with payments with one integration and a common Ripple Payment Object among RippleNet’s customers. It allows for “less friction and more standardization when customers are ready to scale.” 

  • As for the XRP Ledger, it’s open-source and is based on the ledger database, not blockchain.

About Ripple – A Crash Course on XRP

Ryan Fugger was the first person who announced the idea of Ripple. It was in 2004. However, the protocol’s real history started only in 2012 when Jed McCaleb and Chris Larson took over the project. That time it was not even Ripple but OpenCoin. The platform is actually called RippleNet, while the crypto token is Ripple XRP. (It is usually listed as XRP on exchanges).

First, it was a startup project from San Francisco; the blockchain-like payment system was developed. It was created as an alternative to money transfers for the banking system, not as an opposition. Its popularity among financial institutions grew fast, and soon the company announced interest from leading banks. It was expected as the system enforced low-fee fast transfers all around the world. 

Most altcoins that have entered the market are designed to solve some problems that the founders believed could ultimately limit the success of Bitcoin, the so-called king of cryptocurrency. Many, like Bitcoin Cash, have focused on Bitcoin’s lack of scalability. However, Ripple focused on another feature of crypto: its decentralization.

Rather than providing a way for merchants and investors to make transactions online without going through a centralized financial institution (which can be slow, potentially unsafe, and expensive), Ripple was designed to make it easier for centralized financial institutions to make payments. Cross-border payments can be even slower than domestic payments, and they come with much higher transaction costs – and companies worldwide can make hundreds of these transactions every day.

To avoid skyrocketing transaction fees and unfavorable exchange rates, Ripple allows companies to send and receive payments in Ripple XRP. It offers a globalized currency that bypasses some of the problems that can plague fiat currency and fully decentralized cryptos.

Banks apply the protocol to make cross-border transfers in real-time using the xCurrent software solution. At the same time, Ripple (XRP) is also available for investors and traders. Traders can do operations with the cryptocurrency via trading on crypto exchanges or with the help of brokers. The company has had contacts at the highest political and financial levels for many years. Think of the World Bank, the ECB, the IMF, and the World Economic Forum. With rave recommendations and being priced from all sides – what could go wrong?

What Happened to XRP in 2020? 

Before we list experts’ opinions regarding XRP price forecasts and Ripple’s future, let’s look at the price history that will uncover plenty of vital things for any investor. First, you will see what affects the current price of XRP and in what way. And, you will catch the current market conditions to be in the market. 

During 2020, the XRP market price was relatively stable with several medium-term bullish and bearish trends. After the upward movement at the beginning of the year, the price was declining for a month, from February to March. The next bullish trend occurred in July but finished in less than a month. The main rise happened in November when the price hit a maximum of $0.79. 

Why is Ripple going up or down? If you think that something specific is hidden behind these price movements, it’s a mistake. The major Ripple trends are positively correlated with BTC movements, so even Bitcoin halving can affect the XRP price. The cryptocurrency repeats the trend of the primary market. 

Still, there were some certain events we should mention. Investors’ sentiments determine the price direction of any asset. Ripple supply/demand factor plays a huge role. In April 2020, the co-founder of Ripple Jed McCaleb sold 54 million Ripples. It’s not a surprise that the price moved down after the event became public. 

New agreements with leading banks are one of the main drivers of XRP’s price. For example, in August, India’s largest bank HDFC Bank Limited joined RippleNet, in November, the second American largest bank, the Bank of America, signed an agreement with Ripple. 

In December, such leading US exchanges as Coinbase and Binance claimed support for the upcoming airdrop of Spark tokens by Flare Networks. The Flare airdrop took place, and 45 billion Spark tokens were distributed among the XRP holders. The XRP price increased on the news; however, it was corrected shortly. 

Such events have short-term market effects that aren’t visible on high timeframes.

Well, we have come to the most significant event that is still affecting Ripple. The SEC, the US stock market watchdog, is challenging blockchain company Ripple Inc. in court, along with its two top figures, CEO Brad Garlinghouse and founder Christian Larsen. The regulations in the US are tough. The Securities and Exchange Commission’s accusation is that unregistered securities worth $1.3 billion were sold in 2013. It is an old case hanging over Ripple for as long as we can remember. Ripple has always maintained that the digital currency is a currency instead of a security. Because otherwise, they’d have to comply with a lot of different rules according to American law. Many are amazed that the US apparently wants to slaughter the goose that lays the golden eggs.

In two days, from December 22 to 23, 2020, the XRP rate dropped from approximately $0.50 to just under $0.30. From third place as the most important cryptocurrency, the coin moved to fourth place, behind stablecoin Tether. 

XRP Price Prediction for 2021 by Crypto Experts 

The SEC case hasn’t been solved yet. And if, before, it had a dramatic effect on the XRP price, now, the situation is not so obvious. At the end of 2020, the XRP price fell to a local minimum of $0.17 while the SEC case was gaining momentum. At the beginning of April 2021, the XRP value renewed its three-year high at $1.11 while the court allowed the company to review the internal documents of the SEC. 

On May 4, Ripple plunged as the SEC threatened XRP holders with legal action. The Commission opposes investors to join the XRP securities recognition case. Nevertheless, the fall didn’t continue for long, as the company appointed a former US treasurer to its board. 

How should investors behave in such uncertain circumstances? Is Ripple expected to rise or fall? Look at experts’ predictions. 

#1 TradingBeasts 

TradingBeasts expects the average XRP price to stay within a $1.73-1.79 range. The website sees an uptrend, which is a good sign for traders. The maximum price will reach $2.24 in December 2021. The minimum price won’t fall below $1.47 (June 2021).

#2 Wallet Investor

The average price of the XRP will fluctuate near $1.5 until December, when the rate will touch $1.84. Although the website doesn’t predict a strong uptrend, the average price stays at good levels. The highest price will always be near $1.8, surging above $2 in December. The minimum rate won’t fall below $1.1.

#3 Crypto Ground

The Ripple forecast of Crypto Ground can’t be called promising. Still, the upward movement will prevail. By 2022, the price will reach $1.92. 

#4 Coin Price Forecast

This website can shock traders with an over-optimistic projection. According to Coin Price Forecast, the price may reach $4.77 by the middle of the year, while at the end of 2021, it will be $5. 

#5 Long Forecast

Below, you can check the Ripple coin price prediction by the Economy Forecast Agency. The source doesn’t see a sharp uptrend. The price of the XRP/USD pair will suffer high volatility during the year. Although the pair will end 2021 above $2, the way to this threshold will be highlighted by ups and downs.

Ripple Technical Analysis

Will Ripple Go Up? How High Can Ripple Go? Look at  XRP Technical Analysis. 

We shall start the XRPUSD technical analysis by exploring the monthly Ripple price chart outlook. First, we will identify the global trend and the key levels.

 

As you see from the XRP/USD history chart, the price has been regularly updating local highs and lows since March 2020 (see the candlesticks above the blue trendline). Despite the powerful impulses and sell-offs, there is a general global bullish trend.

Another important marker is surges of trade volumes marked with blue dots in the prediction chart.

An increase in trader activity in December 2021 resulted in a failed try to break out at level $0.17. The red candlestick’s low determinesthe strong support level at 0.17, marked with the red line in the chart. Note that, starting from the second half of 2019, the XRP/USD quotes have often approached this line, but it has never consolidated below. This fact suggests the presence of a powerful buyer in the market, actively buying out all the orders at this level to push the price up to the Ripple price target above. 

The next, even more significant, trade volume peak points out a powerful resistance level reached by the January candlestick high (green line). In September 2018, the price movement already stopped at level 0.75 USD. This level should attract large sellers, creating selling pressure.

XRP Price Prediction for the Next Three Months

Let’s go to the technical analysis in the weekly Ripple chart.

Note that most of the time, the XRP quotes have been moving within a narrow Bollinger band. So, the price should be swinging in the range of 0.18 USD – 0.50 USD.

Having explored the XRPUSD exchange rate historical data, I noticed similar fractals, which could be conventionally divided into three phases.

  • Red circle – consolidation with strong upward momentum.

  • Blue circle – a sharp correction, following the impulse, going down to the level where the Ripple growth started or lower.

  • Green circle – widening consolidation range with false breakouts of local highs and lows.

As you see from the chart above, this fractal in the bullish trend features the upward price movement in a broad trading channel. However, I can state for sure that theprice finished the stage of the blue circle. Therefore, the market should be trading sideways in the range of 0.23 USD and 0.70 USD over the next three months.

XRP Forecast for 2021

Having carried out the fractals’ technical analysis in the Ripple market, I offer the XRP/USD price projection for 2021.

Taking into account the width of the trading channel and the range of Bollinger bands, I suggest the XRPUSD future price movement for 2021. I determined the range of the likely market movement by projecting the monthly candlestick, highlighted with an orange box in the chart.

In the main, the trading scenario suggests a consolidation in the broad range between levels 0.29 USD and 0.74 USD until late spring. The rate is likely to retest the upper and the lower channel borders this year. When you consider the wave sequence, there should be, first, a peak in the zone of 0.75 USD – 0.85 USD. Next, the XRPUSD traders should try to test the support level in the price range of 0.17 USD – 0.18 USD.

The detailed XRP price forecast for each month is in the table below:

Weekly Elliott wave Ripple analysis as of 28.06.2021

The XRPUSD market should be forming a global simple zigzag A-B-C. After the price finished rising in the bullish impulse wave A, there started a corrective down wave. The corrective wave must be unfolding as a double zigzag [W]-[X]-[Y]. The first motive wave [W] is a triple zigzag. The linking wave [X] also looks complete, being a double zigzag (W)-(X)-(Y). There could be forming the final motive wave. Let us study the most recent chart section in the H8 hour timeframe. 

After the linking wave [X] finished, the market started declining in the initial part of the new bearish double zigzag (W)-(X)-(Y), the (W) wave. Wave (W) is composed of three major sub-waves A-B-C, where the first two legs completed, and the final impulse wave C is still developing. Wave C is composed of five sub-waves [1]-[2]-[3]-[4]-[5]. The final impulse wave [5] will conclude the entire wave C. The Ripple price should go down to a level of 0.500 in sub-wave (5) of [5], as is outlined in the chart. Next, the market should start rising in the linking wave (X). Wave (X) should retrace wave (W) by 38.2%, therefore, the (X) wave could end at a level of 1.053. One could enter sell trades in the current situation.

Ripple Price Prediction for 2022 by Crypto Experts

2021 isn’t less challenging for Ripple than 2020. The price will keep jumping until the SEC case is solved. Let’s see what leading crypto sources say about the Ripple future value. 

#1 TradingBeasts 

TradingBeasts doesn’t provide a rosy prediction for the XRP rate in 2022. Although the price will hold above $1.8 at the beginning of the year, the downtrend will prevail from June onwards. By December 2022, the average projected value will move to $1.48. 

#2 Wallet Investor

As for Wallet Investor, the Ripple price forecast is also pessimistic. The platform predicts a downward trend. The rate will fluctuate near $1.66-1.73 until December, when it’s expected to cross $2 again. 

#3 Crypto Ground

Crypto Ground disagrees with such pessimistic forecasts. Although there will be a short downward movement at the beginning of the year, the source sees a bullish trend in 2022. The price will be able to hit $2 and come to 2023 at $2.42. 

#4 Changelly

Changelly platform: “As soon as XRP reaches $1, the correction phase may enter. The most likely zone for XRP price in 2022 is from $0.5 to $1. However, if the company gains support from the investment giants, the XRP rate can change its direction to a new bull run.”

#5 Long Forecast

The Economy Forecast Agency has a bearish forecast for Ripple in 2022. The price will decline from $2.17 to $1.53 during the year. Moreover, the table below signals high price volatility.

Ripple Price Prediction for 2023 by Crypto Experts

Moving further, we see that although the price of XRP won’t hit exclusive highs, the cryptocurrency won’t disappear. What awaits the XRP coin price in 2023? How much will it cost?

#1 TradingBeasts 

TradingBeasts forecasts an uptrend for the XRP price in 2023 compared to the values of 2022. Still, the average price will be much lower than in 2021. During the year, the exchange rate of the XRP/USD pair will rise from $1.50 to $1.78.

#2 Wallet Investor 

The Wallet Investor website isn’t so negative about the XRP future. The price won’t show a strong up- or downtrend, moving near $1.9. A sharp rise will be noticed at the end of the year, when we will see the XRP at $2.22. 

#3 Crypto Ground

Crypto Ground is still the most optimistic about the XRP price. Despite a slight correction down at the beginning of the year, the cryptocurrency is anticipated to stay above $2, reaching $2.77 by 2024. 

#4 Changelly

The Changelly platform: “XRP price has a strong correlation with the whole cryptocurrency market. It means that if Bitcoin or altcoins will grow, then Ripple is likely to reach the previous all-time high point of $3.84. This is a very optimistic scenario. If the SEC wins the lawsuit, the XRP price can fall down to a couple of cents.”

#5 Long Forecast

The Economy Forecast Agency is bearish about Ripple in 2023. The price will be set at $1.53 in January. Nevertheless, the overall downward trend will lead the coin to 87 cents at the end of the year.

 Long Term Ripple Prediction: 2025-2030

How much will Ripple be worth in 5-10 years? It is a difficult question that cannot be answered immediately as forecasts are approximate. You never know what will happen to the price tomorrow. Is it possible to predict what will be in 5-10 years? It is, therefore, best to be aware of the latest Ripple news. Then you know what the project and the community are doing. To have a good understanding of the blockchain projects, check which developments are planned, which collaborations they are working on or already exist, how they are working with the community, and other factors.

Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of Ripple, said that by 2025, Ripple would be the Amazon of the cryptocurrency industry.

#1 Crypto Ground

Crypto Ground believes the cryptocurrency will climb above $3 in 2025 and 2026. The primary trend is bullish. In 2026, the price of XRP may stay at $3.42.

#2 Wallet Investor

The Wallet Investor website is positive about XRP in 2025. The average price will stay above $2 during the year. There is a chance it will surge to $2.6 at the end of December 2025. As for the first four months of 2026, the price will fluctuate near $2.5.

#3 Longforecast.com

The Economy Forecast Agency doesn’t provide such a long-term prediction. There is only an outlook for the first half of 2025 – the price will stay in a range of $0.39-0.68.

#4 Smartereum

Coin Price Forecast projections look the least realistic. If other experts predict a downtrend for the XRP price, this website sees the cryptocurrency at $19 by the end of 2030.

How Has The Price Of Ripple Changed Over Time?

It’s wrong to check XRP price predictions without looking back at recent and not-so-recent events. The SEC situation made that even more precise. The Ripple price today is $0.67317. Looking at the full price chart below, you can see how the price of XRP changed over the years and where it stood on the day of writing, February 16, 2021, after the turbulence it went through with the SEC.

XRP was stable from its launch in 2013 until early 2017, when the sideway movement ended. By the end of 2017, its price skyrocketed by 35,000%. This success occurred as Ripple managed to achieve a threshold of 100 banks worldwide that signed on to RippleNet. 

On January 4th, 2018, the XRP/USD rate reached an all-time high. However, it couldn’t sustain those levels, and it subsequently dropped by 76% within one month. The plummet was caused by fears of new regulations on the Asian markets. This factor affected not only XRP but also other cryptos. In 2018, the total market cap for cryptocurrencies declined by around 43%. 

The sharp downtrend that continued until February was also boosted by other factors. Facebook declared it would ban advertisements for cryptocurrencies and ICOs. US regulators summoned Bitfinex and Tether to a court. The further decline was spurred by the finance minister of India, who said the country would do everything it could to discontinue the use of virtual currencies. 

However, the year did not only bring bad news for XRP. A significant surge took place in September 2018. Within several days at the end of September, Ripple grew by over 140%. The XRP/USD rate was pushed up after Ripple’s Head of Regulatory Relations for Asia-Pacific and the Middle East, Sagar Sarbhai, said the company would release a product to expedite bank transactions with the use of XRP. 

2019 was quite stable for Ripple, with no dramatic ups and downs. As the Ripple network is very active in Southeast Asia, news on cross-border payments and state cryptocurrencies in this region significantly impacts its price. For instance, the XRP’s rate moved up after Japan and South Korea started working on time and cost reduction for transferring international funds between the two countries. By the end of 2019, the downtrend strengthened. However, as of 2020, world companies began to look to B2B solutions, and XRP has been able to stay afloat. 

The year 2020 wasn’t marked by significant price movements. High volatility occurred due to the SEC case. This legal action led to XRP’s decline from around 70 cents to 20 cents. 

At the beginning of 2021, XRP was gaining momentum. However, it hasn’t reached the highs of the beginning of 2018. Unlike other crypto assets, which started an upward movement in late 2020, XRP’s price spiked only at the beginning of 2021. Yet, it still has a chance to appreciate further. 

Is Ripple a Good Investment?

Should I invest in Ripple? Ripple: buy or sell? Maybe these questions are still in your head. Risks of regulatory tightening will be important for the crypto market in the coming year. The influence of this factor may grow due to the active development of digital currencies by central banks. Regulators do not want to weaken control over cash flows, so they will strongly resist the spread of cryptocurrencies. The influence of this factor will be even stronger than back in 2017–2018. The expected development of DeFi is another risk for Ripple.

Oddly enough, the coronavirus pandemic can support the virtual market. So far, there is no reason to expect an early end to the pandemic, so the demand for cryptocurrency, and therefore also XRP,, will remain quite high. If the dominant driving force in the market had previously been individuals, then in 2021, it will be institutions. Therefore, next year we will most likely see a smooth rise in the XRP coin. Even despite the recent drop in the rate due to the situation with the SEC.
