XRP Price Goes Sideways Again as XRP/BTC Pressure Remains

As the cryptocurrency momentum seemingly turns more bullish by the hour, the next few days may prove to be rather interesting. While this is not a confirmation of a sustainable uptrend, one has to acknowledge the current XRP price momentum looks somewhat intriguing. Although the price remains at a near status quo, the push to 8,000 Satoshi is still ongoing.

XRP Price Tries to Mount a Comeback

As long as Bitcoin remains in the green – however slightly – good things will probably come to the alternative markets. It is evident XRP is no exception in this regard, although it seems there is something brewing at this time. Sustaining the $0.31 level will not be that big of a problem whatsoever, but it appears the XRP/BTC trend could see some big changes moving forward.

To be more specific, there is a big development in place already. One XRP is valued at less than 8,000 Satoshi, with no real improvements in sight. The most recent 0.35% loss isn’t helping matters much. Despite this trend, there is a 0.12% gain in USD value, which is almost neglectable. For some reason, XRP/BTC keeps offsetting most XRP/USD gains, even under the current circumstances.

On social media, there is some unrest among XRP enthusiasts. While that is not entirely surprising by any means, it seems some traders want to see a market shift happen pretty soon. X-Ray Pete, for example, expects some sort of “event” to usher in XRP’s bull run. One has to wonder what can potentially trigger a major XRP price surge at this time, as none of the recent news seems to do the job.

Neil J Duncan, on the other hand, expects something else entirely This user quoted a former Ripple employee as saying how XRP is the world’s most liquid asset. While there is a case to be made there, it remains to be determined what will happen in the future exactly. Liquidity is crucial for any asset,  yet it doesn’t automatically correlate with its value or perceived value.

Last but not least, it seems the XRP “haters” are slowly running out of mud to sling or arguments to use. As XRP NEO confirms, there are very few facts to be used against RIpple and XRP. While there are a  lot of different opinions on both projects at this time, emotions tend to cloud many judgments. That doesn’t mean XRP will be more or less successful than it is today in a few years time.

With all of this information in the back of traders’ minds, it seems unlikely any major price change will occur for XRP. The current status quo is rather easy to sustain, yet pushing through to the next level is anything but. As such, the ongoing losses in XRP/BTC may continue to disrupt any USD-based price changes for some time to come.
