Failing to sustain high price level, XRP is keeping around $0.30. It might seem that Ripple’s XRP stands still all the time, but Twitter users have the opposite opinion. They are sure that big changes are coming, and XRP is simply accumulating power for the price to explode. Can Ripple go to the moon in 2019? What will drive its overwhelming growth? Check out XRP price predictions from Twitter users.
The history repeats
According to the long-term price charts, Ripple might be repeating its history, and the scenario of 2019 can actualize this year, too:
If XRP breaks out of the current resistance zones, its growth would exceed $1 easily. Some traders are sure it has enough potential to touch the $5 level, too.
Are there any certain triggers of XRP growth? There’s a bunch of theories. One of them claims that Ripple will burn its immense reserves of XRP for its price to rocket:
Although the petition is started, Ripple Labs itself does not plan to burn its tokens – it might have too serious outcomes.
Here is the golden section pattern that proves XRP might soar:
However, it’s simply an amateur approach: what works with fiats might not work with altcoins at all.

XRP won’t grow overnight
The short-term XRP price predictions are positive:
But simple moves to $0.4-0.5 won’t make any serious difference. As for higher XRP levels, there is no 100% confidence that we can reach them in 2019.
Don’t rush to the conclusions
All in all, time will show whether Ripple is able of groundbreaking moves. Right now, there are no signs of Ripple going to the ceiling. As one Twitter user ironically noticed, Ripple will discuss how liquidity has changed before they know the numbers:
The XRP conspiracy theory
This post simply could not stay unnoticed:
What we are witnessing now is how Ripple Labs manipulates its XRP stocks and buys/sells XRP in large amounts to shift the value of the coin. Will their efforts turn out to be fruitful?
For some reason, XRP gets more attractive for other blockchains’ representatives:
Seems like they know something usual traders aren’t aware of. Does it mean Ripple is preparing for a major breakout? Everything is possible.
Meanwhile, Ripple’s bottom levels keep growing from year to year:
Thus, Ripple Labs keeps actualizing its plans, even though slowly. So even if it’s a non-profitable variant for shorts, it must be a great choice for long-term investors. Patience is the key.
