CNN's Julia Chatterley has thrilled the XRP army by announcing that Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse is coming back for another interview. While she didn't reveal a specific date, she did mention that it was coming 'very soon' and asked the crypto community to help her out with questions.

Ripple's IPO plans 

The top questions appear to be centered around Ripple's plan to go public. As reported by U.Today, Garlinghouse revealed that Ripple would be on "the leading side" of the upcoming IPO craze. His words prompted much speculation about how this would affect the token's price. 

Researcher Leonidas Hadjiloizou also wants to know whether or not the 73 percent drop in quarterly XRP sales is linked to a possible IPO or Ripple's $200 mln Series C funding round that made it the second most valuable crypto company.

Prepare for tough questions

Garlinghouse was interviewed by Chatterley for the first time in September 2019. Back then, he was bombarded with uncomfortable questions about the community threatening to fork XRP and the impact of Ripple's incessant sales on the price of the third-biggest cryptocurrency. 

This time around, the Ripple CEO could also weigh in on his recent spat with Galaxy Digital CEO Mike Novogratz, who predicted that XRP would greatly underperform in 2020.

  • Two days ago Bitcoin (BTC) failed to conquer a bearish stronghold at $7,000, which sent it to sub-$6,000 areas. When can we expect the next attack?

Two major cryptocurrency traders and analysts believe that $6,500 may be the final level of this ‘fake rally’ before a new fall for the crypto king.

Relatively calm but targets $6,500

Seasoned crypto trader and analyst Michael van de Poppe recommended his followers to switch their attention towards altcoins.  According to him, many of them may bring profit in the short-term perspective:

$BTC is remaining relatively calm, so you can see alts pop here and there. If $BTC goes in accumulation modus, that will probably be the time that they start to kick off.  Probably during the summer. 

Although, with today's bullish momentum, Bitcoin (BTC) could reach $6,400 and even $6,500 fast.  But once it reaches this level, the U-turn is over and we can brace ourselves for a new decline.

The views of Mr. van de Poppe were shared by CryptoBirb, a prominent analyst and founder of The Birb Nest educational platform. According to him, $6,400-$6,600 is the most comfortable area for the ongoing Bitcoin (BTC) price move.

At printing time, Bitcoin (BTC) trades at $6,340 on major spot exchanges.

Don’t recommend Bitcoin (BTC) to Peter Schiff

Famous ‘gold bug’ Peter Schiff never ceases mocking Bitcoin (BTC), with no regard to bullish or bearish sentiments in the market. Yesterday, he compared the declines from the ATH demonstrated by both his beloved gold and the flagship cryptocurrency. 

Since the Bitcoin (BTC) fall has been five times deeper, he doesn’t have enough words to characterize its advocates.
