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.

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.
