What does the mean for average XRP holder
Proponents expect a positive outcome from Ripple’s lawyers’ subpoenas to SEC officials. Once officials authenticate the remarks made by them, it strengthens Ripple’s defense against accusations made by the regulator.
Ripple’s probable win in the battle against the SEC and expansion of Ripple’s on-demand liquidity platform favors the adoption of XRP. Analysts evaluated the daily price chart and predicted a rally to $0.41. Bob Mason, a leading crypto analyst identified three major resistance levels in XRP price rally.
Mason argues that the first resistance sits at $0.3871, second at $0.3986 and the third at $0.4167. If XRP price fails to break past the second resistance levels and drops to $0.3443, the bullish outlook will be invalidated.
Rudy Fares, a crypto analyst, observed that the XRP price has consolidated between $0.30 and $0.40 for a long period of time now. While other cryptocurrencies like MATIC offered holders massive gains, XRP has lagged behind. Once XRP price breaks past $0.40, it is expected to rally higher and catch up with other altcoins in the market.
