After dropping below the psychological level of $0.25 recently, the XRP price has fallen even further and at press time is sitting at $0.22.

Curiously, that in the fall 2017, this was the approximate price level from which XRP rushed towards $3. 

Now, a crypto analyst suggests that the XRP price is likely to reach the $28 mark in the upcoming cycle, even though many continue pointing out to the dumps of this digital asset to the market.

Recent XRP utility expansion

Recently, Ripple has been stretching XRP's utility, providing more liquidity for this digital asset. In particular, the XRP liquidity index on the Bitso exchange, has reached an all-time high.

Bitso is the biggest on Latin America and a partner of Ripple-powered MoneyGram for using On-Demand Liquidity – Ripple’s product that uses XRP.

Another thing is that XRP ledger transactions have recently hit an all-time high, getting ahead of other ledgers, such as Litecoin, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash.

As reported by U.Today earlier, Ripple-powered remittance company TransferGo is planning to deliver payments to South-East Asia, Africa and Latin America by using RippleNet and XRP.

On Friday, the Twitter account Whale Alert that tracks large movements of crypto on the blockchain, spotted nearly 89,000 ETH (that’s around $13 mln in Ethereum) sent to the Poloniex exchange.

The account points out that the wallet which sent the money had been inactive since April 1 last year. No one has used it for nearly two years, apparently, waiting for the crypto winter to be over and hoping for a price surge afterwards.

One of the possible reasons of this wallet becoming active again is the Ethereum hard fork Istanbul which is about to happen today, on December 7, at block 9069000.

Very often the price of an asset goes up after a major upgrade (the Istanbul hard fork will not cause an appearance of a separate coin as it was with Ethereum Classic).
