As the annual Swell event, set up by Ripple, approaches, traders are looking back at the two previous years and are pointing to charts, suggesting that the XRP price is about to record a massive surge.

Swell is to take place in Singapore from November 7 to November 8.

The website of the event boastfully says:

“Swell, hosted by Ripple, brings together the world’s most trusted voices across financial services, payments, technology and policy to share the reality of what’s unfolding in global payments today — and why it matters.”

XRP price is about to show a massive surge

The crypto trader @CryptoBull2020 has posted a screenshot of an XRP chart from Trading View, saying that the XRP quotes are about to repeat the pattern of 2017.

In the comment thread, some of the XRP community members, are expressing their doubts about the expected price surge, though.
