Ripple’s XRP Price Prediction 2019 & 2020: Future Forecast for XRP Price

XRP Intro

This year the company Ripple and its crypto currency XRP had a lot going on: The violent crash in 2018 brought worry lines on the forehead of followers and investors. From more than three dollars per coin in the meantime, it went down to below 0.30 USD by December.

However, the crypto currency recovered in December 2018 and numerous new partnerships and projects were concluded. Where is the journey going in 2019? The XRP forecast looks promising. But is 500 US dollars per coin really possible (spoiler alert: definitely NOT). The forecast.

Our XRP Price Prediction for 2019

XRP, as the rest of the market, is tied at the hip of bitcoin’s price action. If bitcoin embarks on another bull run, XRP can hope for one as well. Since that is very unlikely, don’t expect much to change for XRP price-wise in this year. So 2019 will be a year of boring sideways action with minor bitcoin ignited jumps and slumps.

To summarize, Bitcoin is the focal point of the crypto market in many ways, and with BTC trading pairs on every exchange, the gravity of Bitcoin is hard to evade.

XRP in 2019 will probably keep stagnating price-wise, since the coin lost a lot of value and there is no sign on the horizon of any change in luck for the Ripple token. Price will very likely stay below $.50 per token.


XRP price prediction in 2020

This Ripple price prediction wouldn’t be complete without a short forecast on the upcoming year. Barring no major shifts in broader market, former and current strategy of Ripple that tried to buy the hype and artificially prop up the price of XRP seems to be waning and tapering off. Some real results and usage is needed if we are to see XRP crossing the $1 again.

That is unlikely in our eyes but to emphasize: no one can foresee a black swan event like a huge worldwide recession and another crazy bitcoin run that might shuffle the outlook of all cryptocurrencies, including XRP. In that case, anything is possible.

Realistic XRP Price 2019 & 2020

Anything between $0.30 and $1 is fairly realistic price prediction ripple can get. The $1 is the ceiling for XRP that could be reached should the whole market embark on another crazy bull run. To narrow it down a bit – $0.30 to $0.60 is probably the most likely zone for XRP for the upcoming months and potentially years.

The XRP prediction for the 2023 – 2025 – 2030

As for XRP long term future prediction: it is one of the trickier to assess. The Ripple company seems to have a good business model (selling XRP tokens to finance brand building and partnership acquisition) and its future appears to be very bright from this standpoint.

However, XRP tokens are highly disputed in the whole story. What is XRP connection to Ripple? It is a multifaceted answer and depends heavily on who you ask. Ripple works hard on distancing itself from the XRP token, even though it is and has been its mother lode since its inception.

The use case for XRP is viable, however, it is easily replicable by other major institutions like JP Morgan and co. So, there is a big vector attack on that end.

There is also the velocity problem for XRP tokens which, in essence, tells us that even if there are a lot of XRP transactions and half of the world starts to use XRP for value transfer – there is no clear path for value increase of individual XRP tokens. Read more about it here.

All of this means one thing: XRP has speculative value right now and it will have it for the forseeable future. However, real value that is not bought by marketing gimmicks of its parent company will be very hard to accrue.

XRP short term future is a goldmine for speculators – but dangerous play for risk averse investors. The later ones are better off if they invest in bitcoin.

Market XRP price prediction 2019 & 2020

There are numerous sites that have predicted potential future price targets. The truth is: No one can really know. You can only get close to a goal by good arguments and numbers.

The experts of investinghaven.com in their Ripple price prediction article expect that the coin can rise up to 20 dollars within one year. That sounds better. But what arguments can they put forward?

Thus the authors say that the XRP gains in value, because one can settle thereby world-wide payments in the future. Every year, about 30 billion US dollars would only be incurred in fees for international transfers and currency exchanges. The Ripples system could save about $16.5 billion. And it would do so every year.
The company is also planning another application called Xpring. This will allow even more people to work on the blockchain and use the coin. Goods will also be developed and traded on the Blockchain. The authors attach great importance to this and think that the bank crypto currency will become the number one in its field, similar to the large platform companies Facebook, Amazon and Google.

And this platform or network effect is likely to cause further increases in forecasts for the crypto currency. These platforms function according to one principle: The winner takes it all.

The experts thus arrive at a forecast of 20 USD. In support of this, they take the long-term chart. If this is continued into the future, an XRP coin could actually cost USD 20 next year.

Oracle Times Ripple Price Prediction

Oracle Times is a small media publication focused on cryptocurrency industry. In their article about price prediction, ripple token got an eyebrow raising mention: a ludicrous idea that XRP might surge as much as 2000%, and they mentioned it could be possible only if Ripple becomes the best choice for cross-border payments by financial institutions. The cross border transactions account for around $9.8 trillion.

Ripple Price Prediction 2021

By 2021, we should see if cryptocurrencies have some future or not. The fate of the whole industry will depend on bitcoin. If bitcoin penetrates the traditional finance markets, some of the altcoins might slip through the cracks into it alongside the king.

Putting a precise number out is really not serious but some have done it – $2 for one XRP in 2021 is often quotes a reality.

Ripple Price Prediction 2025

As per diverse online forecast websites, the price of 1 Ripple (XRP) will be around $4.52 in 2025.

I would actually be immensely surprised to see XRP in its current shape and form be live and kicking in 2025.

Ripple Price Prediction 2030

Again, shady and low reputation online sites predict ripple price in 2030, and tell us that XRP might reach $17.0576. Just to remind you – 2030 is 11 years away – do you really think that some algo or a human being can predict anything that much into the future?

I thought so.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Will XRP reach 100 USD?

Simple answer – extremely unlikely. Getting to $10 is a pipedream, $100 is as likely as Sun coming out on the west.

2. Can you mine XRP?

No, XRP ledger has a special consensus algo that keeps it live and transparent – read more about it here.

3. How do you buy XRP tokens?

You can click here to read how to buy XRP.

4. How much will XRP be worth in 2020?

Most likely below $1. Very unlikely to be above $1.

6. Why is XRP going down?

Crypto is a rollercoaster – going up and down in strong, sharp, sudden moves. XRP is part of that crazy ride so that is why it is going down. Or up, depends when do you join the circus.

Final words

What does the final forecast look like – is Ripple price prediction something to take seriously? You definitely should not invest your money based on something your read on the internet. Basically, no one can say exactly where the coin is going. However, it seems that there are many more positive opinions than negative ones.

Voices that appear from time to time claiming XRP will go to $20 or even $500 should be ignored. That seems to be a pipe dream and illusion manifestation by the predictors. Even reaching the current all time high is probably out of question for XRP in the next 12 months.

  1. this is all very well and we’ve heard the story before about Ripple being focused on money transfers.
    Even if we were to accept the idea that in some cases XRP might be used as a sort of exchange token to go from one currency to another, I cannot see why the notional value of the XRP token would logically be any higher than what it is today…
    1 – in this scenario the tokens are not “consumed” as such so there is no impact on the supply quantity which in any case is large at 100 billion tokens. A shrinking supply might otherwise have justified a higher value…
    2 – What’s in it for the banks who are currently raking vast amounts of money in transfer fees, have they suddenly morphed into philantropic organizations? I don’t think so.
    3 – currently the transaction fee is very small, but of course if the value of XRP was to increase substantially then the fee would also rise… Which brings me to the fact that volatility generally would make XRP unsuitable for currency exchanges therefore it has to be stable if that’s going to be its role, even if transaction times are short. Imagine XRP spiking/crashing while a transfer is on its way then what?

    All in all I fail to understand how XRP could have any more value, in fact all would indicate a lower value would benefit its main users – the banks…
    I am definitely no expert, so I would be happy to hear technical opinions that prove me wrong, cheers.

  2. Noob – Trying hard to understand the nuances:
    Item 2) I thought cost to banks for transfers is reduced so that saves them money. They choose to pass that savings on to customers.

    Item 3) could that xrp transaction fee be further reduced as the price of xrp rises substantially? So that some fiat value is established? Or some “stable” fiat tethered crypto value like USDC ? Or is only a crypto value acceptable?

  3. For Chris:

    1) Of course tokens will be bought up and acquired, not only by retail investors (as they are now) but also major financial institutions for reasons of scarcity trading. It’s a simple case of supply and demand, people will buy up the coins, creating scarcity, therefore increasing the price. Institutions will likely also follow this practice knowing full well if the coin is adopted en mass then financial institutions world wide will have no choice but to buy the coin at the market value at that point in time in order to execute there day to day transactions. Knowingly or not.
    2) the banks who actually make money off the transfers you talk of are only less than 1% of all the banks on the planet, as well as financial tech companies like SWIFT. The majority of banks will actually welcome this new way of cheap and ultimately instant monetary transfer.
    3) The current chargeable rate for money transfer (using XRP) is literally that small that it makes little difference in comparative competitiveness into the current market leader in this field, SWIFT. It quite simply is a lot cheaper, quicker and more efficient than any other traditional money transfer system . The current rate charged (for XRP) does not necessarily mean it is set in stone either, however Ripple would need to confirm this.
    Volatility is not an issue with XRP settlements at all, especially in a high volume market. This is because transactions only take a few seconds and would only be vulnerable for a few seconds, in which time, trading xrp for US dollar would be like farting in the wind with regards to fluctuations. It would make little difference at all in price.

    Hope this clarifies a few things…

    Cheers.
