Despite the fact that Ripple blows its competition out of the water and is retaining third place in the top-10 world cryptocurrencies, its price is still far from perfect. So far, it has been keeping in the range of $0.28-$0.35, and its current price is $0.31 (as of 02/18/19).

Experts continue making Ripple price predictions and forecasts. Some are realistic, while some sound like science fiction. Let’s check out the opinions of authoritative crypto experts and websites, and find out what are the chances their assumptions will materialize.

Major XRP price predictions 2019

Considering Ripple’s technological superiority and potential partnerships, many crypto experts believe that it must soon rally from its low. Here’s what they state:

  1. Ripple Coin News, one of the largest websites of its kind, predicts that 2019 will be a lucky period for Ripple, and its price can soar to the $8-10 mark. Such growth will be enabled by new technologies and partnerships.

  2. Daily Express, a UK newspaper, states that XRP is to hit the $5.06 mark.

  3. According to theoofy.com, continuous growth and stability of its position can make Ripple reach $1.2 by the end of 2019. That might happen in Q3 or Q4 2019 if things go smoothly. If XRP manages to double its value in the nearest time and enter the market at the rate of $0.78, it may reach $1.10 by the middle of 2019. The listing of Ripple on independent trading platforms and investment projects can accelerate this process.

  4. Investing Haven’s Ripple price prediction is $20 in 2019. Such forecast is based on the introduction of xRapid tech, partnerships with financial institutions, as well as XRP technological advantages.

Some other websites, including Xstreet, express.co.uk, and Investing PR state that Ripple’s value should reach about $3-5 by the end of this year.

However, some websites are less optimistic about that:

  • The 30rates website predicts that Ripple will stay somewhere between $0.259-$0.299 in March 2019.

  • Metro, a major UK newspaper, also predicts a Ripple price of $0.22-0.28. They are sure that Bitcoin will continue its dominance and is expected to reach $20,000 again.

  • The Economic Forecast Agency expects Ripple to fall further without naming particular numbers.

$10 Ripple price – How real is it?

Okay, we all hope for the best and want Ripple to reach its highest heights this year, but what are the chances of it overcoming a $10 mark?

We have already discussed the possibility of Ripple hitting $100 – it’s almost impossible. Let’s perform similar calculations:

Ripple’s overall supply is 99 991 698 361 XRP.

For 1 XRP to cost $10, Ripple’s market cap should be $999,916,983,610!

Think about it. Almost 1 trillion.

At the moment, Ripple’s market cap is $12.7 bln (1/83 of the desired goal).

Even Apple’s market cap is $800 bln, which proves there’s nothing impossible, but there are too many ‘What ifs’.

What if Ripple won’t stand the competition from Litecoin and Tron?

What if it won’t be as massively adopted as Ripple Labs’ plan?

What if governmental regulations will hinder Ripple implementation in banks?

For XRP to reach the $10 mark, we should witness a huge adoption rate from the world’s banks and financial institutions. Let’s be sincere: right now, all we can count on is a $1.20 price by the end of 2019. The current situation in the crypto market makes Ripple a great investment target, so don’t lose your chance. Sooner or later it should take off and soar high to the sky.

Update: According to Smartereum’s author Andreas Kaplan, with the current projections taken into account, most people in crypto sphere agree that Ripple value can go up to the $200-$300 range in 10 years. Even though this number seems to be even less realistic than the above-mentioned assumptions, there’s a grain of truth in what he bases his prediction on.

RippleLabs are working tight-lipped on their project, and keep attracting new and new partners: Accenture, Andreessen Horowitz, CME Ventures, Core Innovation Capital, Google Ventures, Santander Innoventures, SBI Group, Digital Ventures, Seagate, Standard Chartered and many other companies have expressed their willing to work with Ripple.

RippleLabs are on their way to make XRP a key token for both bank transfers and real-time payments:

Definitely, they’ve taken the right path, so XRP price growth is just a matter of time. While $100 Ripple price prediction still seems to be utopian, $5 is a goal that might be achieved in the nearest years.

Bitcoin has managed to make it to $4,000 but didn’t hold long. What will be its next steps? Will BTC reach new heights, or is its short-term success to be eclipsed by another bearish trend? tradingview users share their outlook on Bitcoin’s nearest future.

BTC is going through ABC correction

Bitcoin is through ABC correction

Bitcoin price chart from botje11

According to user botje11, Bitcoin seems to be going through ABC correction. So far, it has been moving towards the $4,200 neckline again. Volume is moderate, but not bad. It looks to be developing normally within what looks like a right shoulder. Since December 2018, it has been attempting to form an inverse H&S pattern.

Here’s what botje11 writes:

“In a short term, we want to see something like the chart on the left. Making a bigger bull flag here. So touching 4000/4020 again and then retest the support one more time around 3950/40. If we see this happen without any strange moves, chances will be very high to see an attack of the 4200. As you know from my previous analysis, that if we see a touch of 4200ish, even when seeing a rejection there at first, i am quite sure it will break eventually. In this scenario, 4000 should be the low after touching the 4200ish.”

If we manage to move up above 4000/4050, the volume should increase. To witness positive changes, the rally should be bigger than before. The real volume jump can be postponed until a break of the $4,200 level. But then it has to be enormous. Seems like traders aren’t willing to wait anymore.

Short-Sale Structure pattern is here

We are likely to see Bitcoin falling to a support line

Bitcoin price chart from CryptoManiac101

According to CryptoManiac101, up to date, we are witnessing a clear follow through with our Short-Sale Structure pattern. It means there’s a 90% chance of a flash dump or drop towards supports. However, crypto is a very volatile matter, and we might see an upward movement into the next week. At the moment, there’s no clear BTC/USD trade set up.

There’s the third successive buy signal

Prepare to buy BTC at $4,100

Bitcoin price chart from TradingShot

Bitcoin gives another buy signal for traders. Look at the pattern: 4H Channel Up within a 1D Ascending Triangle. The signal seems to be bullish in the Higher Low zone. Prepare to buy BTC at $4,100 higher high and sell on $4,190 when Ascending Triangle Resistance forms.

BTC is to fall to $3,300

BTC might fall to $3,300 and lower soon

Bitcoin price chart from MrRenev

Some users don’t share the optimism around Bitcoin’s future. For example, the user nicknamed MrRenev believes that BTC is to fall to around $3,300 in 7-10 days.

Here’s what he writes:

“After a dead cat bounce and the usual victims that regulators try so hard to protect - no matter how much that hurts the legit traders like me - and that lose no matter how many rules aka wheelchair training wheels are set in place to help them out, will ONCE AGAIN call the bottom, buy the dip etc - which should last let's say 3-5 days, the price will then fall more than 1/3 in a matter of days. We will then bottom at 1500-2000 we might get there fast or after a bounce a little higher and momentum slowdown follower the 33% loss in 2-3 days.”

Why should it be so? MrRenev bases his prediction on the fact that the Chinese government doesn’t like Bitcoin and might do everything to suppress it. BTC will be under risk after rejecting resistance twice and run into the next resistance which is $4,200-4,300. The user is sure that the chances of a bull run is minimal.

After breaking resistance, Bitcoin is through the uptrend. Judging by predictions from TradingView, it's more likely to rise than return to the $3,500 level or lower. Keep tabs on the new resistance level. $4,050 will be a new BTC price threshold and an entry point for traders.
