Ripple Will Be The Amazon For Crypto: Brad Garlinghouse
‘’we’ve added more than 150 employees last year, at a time when I think others have been less focused on solving real world problems. There’s been a bunch of lay offs in crypto community over the past weeks.’’Ripple intends to work with regulators for more clarity and he wants to see the US becoming a leader in the crypto industry which will not happen without regulatory clarity. He also said that XRP’s value is north of $10 billion so this valuation for the IPO presents an opportunity for Ripple shareholders which will give the platform more flexibility to pursue deals such as their $50 million investment in MoneyGram:
‘’When I step back and think about it macro, I think it’s really healthy and constructive for the entire crypto blockchain community to see central banks and central governments lean into what can these new technologies do to make our economy more efficient, our payment infrastructure more efficient… so at large I think it’s really positive.’’
Ripple Has Room To Double As Technical Strength Grows
“Looking at XRP/USD on the Weekly timeframe, we can see that price broke out above trendline resistance from June 2019 a couple of weeks ago on strong volume, and has now found resistance at the prior swing-high at $0.36,” he said.In order for the cryptocurrency to rally past this resistance, it will probably require Bitcoin to see some further momentum. Patel said that he does believe XRP will ultimately see some significant upwards momentum and set a mid-term target with highs around $0.56.
“Volume continues to rise and I am firmly of the belief that dips are for buying, with the ultimate target being the high at $0.56 from June 2019,” he noted.Patel also explained that the cryptocurrency is right now "consolidating above its 200-day moving average" and a strong defence of its key defence at $0.27 could spark a new short-term movement to over $0.36 soon.
