Currently, Ripple (XRP) has been trading on a bearish level scarcely increasing above the $0.33 price range. It has been quite a roller coaster for some investors who are expectant of some interest, although Ace XRP investors are educating them on the impact of liquidity. They stated that tokens price does not interfere in the face of the platform’s surging liquidity. Speaking on this is Eric Dadoun¸ he stated: “Very bullish seeing the liquidity impact of MoneyGram. Deep liquidity eventually enables real players (IE: banks). You can’t transfer meaningful fund sizes when the order books can’t support a fraction of it while remaining stable. XRP price is meaningless for now”.
XRP (XRP) Price Today – XRP / USD
Ripple controls over 50% of the XRP supply and steadily sells it into the market to fuel the ecosystem’s growth. This has swiftly increased the XRP supply, expanding the downward pressure on its price. Although they will sell at a lower price in a bid to protect the token’s price.
Despite the increasing list of xRapid users, XRP fans have not gained much from the token’s prices. Recently, many users are initiating an uprising as they are no longer comfortable with the price wave. So far, they have published an online proposal demanding Ripple to commence a token burn of available XRP. The rationality behind this is that the token burn will reduce the XRP supply, which should, in turn, increase the token’s prices.
The unrest community is not having any of Ripple’s reassurances and are taking a stand. Sadly for the XRP holders, Ripple has a lot to gain from selling that huge XRP in the vaults. The unsold XRP is currency valued at $15.5 billion. They, therefore, have no reason to commence a coin burn.
