XRP’s downtrend might continue

After finishing 2019 with a disappointing 40 percent drop, XRP investors saw a glimmer of hope in 2020, with the price of the token surging by nearly 90 percent in February. As of today, all these gains have been erased.

XRP is currently down 95 percent from its all-time high of $3.29. As reported by U.Today, prominent chartist Peter Brandt suggested that it would be a good buy when it hits $0.00826.
