Ripple XRP Price Prediction For 2018

Last updated



ripple predictions

Ripple has been garnering a lot of attention in the cryptocurrency world. Just like other cryptocurrencies, Ripple’s cryptocurrency, XRP also uses the blockchain technology. However, unlike other cryptocurrencies, it is regulated and facilitates fund transfer for banks.

Ripple has seen a surge of 4000% in the first half of 2017. Today, the market cap of Ripple is more than $100 billion. Ripple claims that there were more than $11 billion worth of transactions in the second quarter of 2017. Currently, it is listed on 30 exchanges.

Why Is XRP Expected To Perform Great In 2018?

1- Operations :

Ripple is working with some of the biggest financial institutions around the world. Ripple aims to power the whole financial sector by making instant transactions possible at a fraction of the current costs. It provides a frictionless experience for global fund transfer using the blockchain technology. In future, it is expected to act as a liquidity solution for the cross-border transactions. Banks and Payment Providers can use XRP to settle multi-currency transactions to minimize the overheads.

Right now, SWIFT facilitates most of the international payment transfers. Whenever we make any cross-border transaction, we need to provide the SWIFT code of the branch of the bank. SWIFT has a monopoly over cross-border settlements. It has more than 11,000 financial institutions and 200 countries on its network. Ripple is associating with big financial institutions and working with many banks to incorporate its blockchain technology. It’s hard to say how soon or whether Ripple will be able to take SWIFT down or not. However, it can indeed break the monopoly of SWIFT over the international fund transfer.

2- Powerful Technology :

Ripple can process 1500 transactions per second, which is huge as compared to Bitcoin. Bitcoins can handle up to 7 transactions per second. Ripple’s technology is powerful enough to replace international payment systems such as VISA while reducing the cost and allow instant transfers.

3- Trust :

A large number of banks from around the world are actively working with Ripple to implement its technology over their payment infrastructure. It makes Ripple trustworthy, and investors find XRP to be a comparatively safer bet as compared to other cryptocurrencies.

4- Cryptocurrencies As Safe Haven :

Cryptocurrencies performance during 2017 will be a determining factor for their demand in 2018. 2017 saw the price of XRP surging rapidly during the first half. Other cryptocurrencies won’t find it easy to copy the market development of Ripple. Investors interested in the digital currencies as a haven for the uncertain times will find Ripple as a promising candidate.

5- Familiarity :

Bitcoin and Ethereum are the most traded cryptocurrencies. A large percentage of cryptocurrency traders and investors are still not familiar with Ripple despite its promising technology. Once, a few institutional investors join the network and Ripple permeates the mainstream investor’s community like Bitcoin and Ethereum, an influx of trend followers can make the XRP prices shoot through the roof.

Predictions For 2018

– Looking at the latest developments and increasing interest towards the XRP, by the end of 2018, the Ripple price is expected to cross the $7 barrier at least.

– Trading Volume of XRP is nowhere close to the most popular cryptocurrencies, BTC and ETH. Trading volume is expected to grow in 2018, and a rise in speculative activity on the Ripple cryptocurrency can even raise its prices to $7-$10 mark as well.

– Though the overall price of XRP is expected to witness an upsurge, not all months of 2018 will be the same. A lot of cryptocurrency enthusiasts don’t like the idea of banks or any financial institution or a company regulating the cryptocurrency. In the long run and as long as banks exist, XRP is likely to prove as a solid investment, but its prices can see a downward trend in some of the months.

Should You Invest In Ripple?

If you want to invest in Ripple, XRP as a long-term investment that you would like to hold for years to come, Ripple seems to be a promising investment. A paradigm shift is happening, and we are moving towards digitization of all currency. In the world where money exists in the digital ledger of banks, cryptocurrencies like Ripple have a special place as they are not anti-bank in nature like many other cryptocurrencies. Instead, they are developed to let the banks utilize the evolving blockchain technology.

If you want to invest in XRP for quick gains within a few months to an year, it seems promising. In 2018, it is expected to see a sharp upsurge in prices. It is projected to cross the one dollar mark at the very least.

If you are a day trader, XRP’s trading volume should grow as well. With increased trading activity, fluctuation in prices will be seen as well.

Final Verdict

With a promising financial technology for future and growing network of banks, Ripple’s cryptocurrency looks like a promising long-term investment. With more investors becoming aware of XRP and a growing awareness towards its technology, XRP’s prices are expected to rise in 2018. In the first half of 2017, XRP’s price surged up to 4000%. As the trading volume of this cryptocurrency is nowhere near the most popular cryptocurrencies, BTC and ETH, it is expected to witness at least one-fourth or half the spike as seen in 2017. Therefore, it is predicted to rise above $7-$10 in 2018.

    I agree and would love that to happen, i think its a great investment but im also a little worryed! The resin for this is that all the banks are starting to use ripply now with is great, but I might be wong here in saying that ripply and xrp are 2 diffrent things one is for the banks and the devices they use, and the xrp is the coin, and i no the banks are not really that interested in the coin!! I think!!! So what if very one puts money into ripply and then they decide to do away with the xrp???? Can people please explain to me thanks

      Joe; Stay away from it. Something shady about it.. The company has also held back 60% of their coins. If you’re in this for a quick turn around, then maybe you can double your money. I had Ripple at .25 cents. Did nothing for three weeks. I sold at .28 cents and breathed a sigh of relief, about an hour later it started to surge and then doubled. I can’t begin to tell you how many times that shit has happened to me within a couple hours. Gettin’ pissed off actually. So now, I pick 2 crypto’s I have faith in; Ethereum, Litecoin. Period. I also sat on Bitcoin Cash for 4 weeks and did nothing. Just sold a few hours ago and now it’s up $300.00! Can’t write this shit. It’s like my bad luck is controlling the universe. So I’m done trading and all that jazz. In it to win it, just like the early Bitcoin holders. Hopefully ETH & LTC make the gains I think they will in 2018. Now I’m gonna go outside and live my life. 🙂

            I have doubled my savings in less than two months! Thanks to ethreum, litecoin, ripple. What I can say is, buy in the dips. dont sale and stay still and chill. If you want to be in front of your computer all day, then buy and sale. if that is not the case chill out and buy when low. IT’s working wonders for me. good luck !

          Always do research on the coin, the parent company, and where they’re headed/what they’ve done. If you did that, you wouldn’t be jumping boat too early and missing out on the surges.

          You shouldn’t invest in crypto if you’re looking to dip in and out with a large return in a short amount of time anyway.

        You don’t have bad luck…You just seem to make a lot of stupid decisions, that and you are WAY to impatient. This is investing…its not going to the race track and betting on the best horse and hoping you win a ton of money. But the worst part of you…is that you are inexplicably passing your stupid impatient decisions on to others when they ask for advice. Unbelievable.

        How you feeling now that you sold your ripple at 0.28 cents…? Seeing that it is now at almost $3.00 just 2 WEEKS later…ahahahahaha!!

        “Stay away from it” he says….LOL.

          Like he said it is not a race track. Show some patience.

          Invest the money and have a look at the trend twice a day.

          Don’t panic take a deep breath and WAIT WAIT WAIT

          All the BEST and Hope you will Gain profit.

          February 7, 2018 at 5:35 am

          Kepp buying as long as its under a dollar ($1 USD) and HODL for at least a year until December no matter what happens. The see where your at.

          Also, IF it does get to a nice price before then and you feel compfotable with those profits then by all means sell sell sell but please dont panic sell at the first big drop. I notice allot of crypto investors are easily spooked and very impatient. Long term doesnt mean a week or month, it means years.

          BUT if you’re trying to “day trade” and you are inexperienced, you might lose all your money because crypto can be very sporadic and hard to read. So unless you’re lucky or can read the signs then please start slow and dont gamble anything you arent willing to lose and DONT PANIC SELL!

        Ripple held back half of the coins because its part of their business plan. Those coins are to be put into an interest bearing account and released a certain % at a time each month.

        Also, a small % of XRP gets destroyed each time there is a transaction, so over time XRP becomes DEFLATIONARY, also increasing the price.

        Yes XRP might be the “centralized” crypto but no-one ever said it wasnt over at Ripple. They made cealr exactly what RIPPLE is made to do.

        If you want a anon crypto, buy Zcash or Monero, etc… If you want a stable payment coin buy LTC or BCH, heck maybe even BTC on the segwit system. But please dont knock RIpple because they are gaining steam. Check who is becoming clients of theirs…Yes “centralized” companies like Money Gram and other big ones…

        Basically I am deeply amazed by blockchain theory and technology and I am also amazed by how anonymous certain coins are but sadly I am poor as f**k and If I can make a few dollars I will by trading XRP and in the mean time I can use any profit to support other cryptos as well.

      OK Joe..
      Here it is.
      Ripple and xrp will be the crypt that covers the planet.
      Nothing measures up to xrp as a coin and ripple will not be losing xrp at all. However it will take just Alittle time.
      Xrp will be used by the mainstream.
      Crypts will only grow and grow no matter what. It’s the new affordable care act and agenda 21 .
      All coming together.
      One world currency and the raid.
      Implant . Cashless will happen and so will this.
      You can read all about this in revelation chapter 13 versus like 12 and up. .
      Good luck God speed and share the word.

          Actually, Crypt may just reshape healthcare. Patientory aims at using Blcokchain technology to help hospitals meet HIPPA regulations, and provide more security for Private Health Information (PHI). Security is healthcare is always reactive, and this provides a proactive strategy. They even have a booth at HIMMS this year. Might be a great opportunity. Just look at Epic, the EMR system. They use the most advanced technology, and if they or Cerner adopt Blockchain as their standard, ICOs like Patientory will explode. So Cryptos and Healthcare are more than likely going to be very invested in each other.

        Yes, buying and selling can only be successfully prohibited once it is digitized. No-one can stop you from buying / selling when you still have fiat currency. Although this is only the beginning of digital money, movement will be rapid to implement it. It’s already started with the explosion of crypto’s in the world. People who never had money are literally getting rich overnight. It is understandable how there can be many sceptics, given the rapid growth of some of these currencies. It still baffles the mind that $100 invested is 2009 can be more than $10 000 000 in 2017. However, as the saying goes…”Y0U 5N00Z3, Y0U L053″

      If you guys read the news someone or company had placed 700 million dollars within ripple about two weeks ago on December 15th. XRP was valued around .70 cents then. Now it’s doubled. Don’t you think that is a bit fishy? I personally think it’s a pump and dump scheme. I’m invested in it but I’ve placed a stop limit just incase the surge does go down as I predict.

          I agree, Johnathan. Idiots should stay away from it…..They usually have no patience and do not make good investors. Morons and Imbeciles still have a chance though……
          I bought 177 USD worth of XRP in Sept 2017. It’s value now (Jan 2018) is more than 4000 USD. XRP only has to reach 1 % of the current value of BTC (even if it takes 5 years) and I will have made 2,431,000 USD. I am not buying more ripple at this time, although I may exchange small amounts of BTC to buy a few thousand of other promising coins like XVG OR DGB (Digibyte has already tripled in value since I bought a few thousand of it a week ago).

      I think that anyone really looking to invest in Altcoins just need to look into the background and the really high market cap. The coin can only rise and I would be bullish enough to predict that XRP will breach $3 in January 2018. Its on the journey and will be top 3 right through 2018. The eastern market with China and Korea recognizing the swift payments for many credit company and suppliers seeing real benefits to customers – this base will continue to grow. AMEX are in the wing and all signs show they are prepping for real involvement.
      Get involved if you want to see a real return from an investment – I will continue to buy $10+
      The only way is up – skyward.

      It’s a misinformation that the Banks will not need the XRP if they’re using the ripple network. They will still need the XRP to convert FIAT currencies instantaneously during global transfers. Another misconception that Ripple isn’t interested to increase the price of the XRP. That is partially true, they will need to increase it (by means of controlling the share they own) so that the banks can easily transfer huge sums of money with as little as XRP as possible. That’s also because some XRP is lost during the transactions as part of the source code and the ripple system. That said, Ripple will try to increase the XRP price in a very stable trend, because price volatility of all the other cryptocurrencies are what keeps banks away from using any of them.

    • David Poole

      March 2, 2018 at 4:41 pm

      I have 1200 USD in Ripple and will buy much, much, more before March ends. You can’t get hung up on the banks doing anything with Ripple until more big investors fall in line in buying a lot of Ripple. that alone will take Ripple to 5 to 7 dollar mark. Then Coinbase accepting Ripple as it’s 5th currency will make it surge to the 15 to 20 dollar range. Then Amazon takes Ripple to the upper level for investors and Big banks to apply it to their portfolios and their businesses. Ripple will pass the 100.00 mark buy the end of November 2018 so don’t get discouraged because this is the calm before the storm so I am on the Big Buy train for XRP and I hope everyone is doing the same thing. Ripple in 2017 Was on one roller coaster ride after another. I purchased Ripple when it was .25 cents a coin and it went crazy as it rose to .75. I bought some more and it rose to .99 and again to 1.05. Ripple rose to 3.10 a coin and looked like everything was coming up roses until Coinbase came out and said that they weren’t going to add any more currencies at this moment and put ripple in a tail spin. It dropped to 1.00 over night and is now at .9045 USD. But it will eventually go up so use this low time to invest so your not saying I should have done that like I said abought Bitcoin. Now it’s at 10,000.00 per coin and I could have purchased it at 35.00 but I didn’t. Ripple is my last chance and I am going big. Buy Ripple!!!!

    Although Ripple and XRP are two different things but they are made for each other. Banks can save significant money if they chose to use XRP. Also with XRP they can do instant settlement of payments. Let me be clear here sending instant payment and settling instant payments are two different things. Banks can only achieve this by using XRP. Also by using XRP they DO NOT need nostro accounts in different countries. Think form bank point of view, they will be saving billion of dollar when they decide to use XRP. Banks love profits…everyone does……so i have strong and indeed very strong belief that bank will….one day use XRP

    RE; preetinder Sing

    The technology is clear. Its also said that the use of XRP reduces the transfercosts of the banks.
    But how is the case if the banks have to pay the marketprice for ripple/xrp predicted between US$2 and US$4. what influence will that have on the transactioncosts?

    • Ron

      November 3, 2017 at 2:45 pm

      They pay $ 25,- for one swift transaction. So paying $2,- or even $50,- is still cheaper as the fee is just a few thousands of a cent. And you can use what is send to you. So even when SWIFT cost $25,- and XRP cost $50,- XRP is still cheaper in usage, you buy it and send it and receive it back. Just 2 transatransactions would make you get to a brake even point.

    September 19, 2017 at 12:04 am

    Let’s be realistic. Banks are slow moving. The fact that a large number have taken on the idea of even using blockchain is awesome. So they are using the ledger alone and not XRP. Not a huge deal right now. Perhaps (speculation) they are testing the waters and then in the future will delve into XRP. Who knows….

      I doubt you’re a good market predictor, which is fine, I’m also terrible at it. However, you shouldn’t sell at a loss then, hold and wait until it gets back up again.

    I bought XRP when they were 25 Euro-Cents each. Now they’re at 18 Euro-Cents and I’m not worried at all because I’m looking at the long term possibilities. Believe in huge returns in 5 years from now and watch it happen!

    XRP is when you for long term. If you think, you can be rich in few years, then you are wrong. XRP based on Ripple is focused on banking sector. As banking sec. moves we will see progress. It will go up and down for few time in cents. In the longer term through extensive graph and CAP and tech infrastructure analysis. It is going to to be a good investment. But, just remember, only do much what you can afford to loose. Always have top and low sec to buy to sell and act accordingly.

    I feel 2018 is going to be VERY crucial for XRP….last week Amex came in to use ripple’s blockchain technology in its US-UK transactions only. Lets hope they get good tesults, coz that will bring huge business for ripple in future. Most of the Financial institutions and banks are convinced by ripple’s blockchain technology but afraid to start using it…so, if Amex gets good results..other players will follow. Then you’ll see XRP skyrocketing. May cross $3 or $4 in 2018

          go get btc off coinbase or eth off anywhere else. Probably eth because lower fees.

          then use Binance to turn it into XRP.

          Put XRP into your wallet program that you should’ve installed.

    I’m new to all this crypto currency stuff but I’m wondering how XRP will actually go up in value since it’s not exactly the Ripple system.

    I’ve also read that the current system SWIFT is fighting back against banks switching to Ripple as they are lowering fees, etc…

    So if you’re a bank and you’re already using SWIFT your main reasons for switching to Ripple are:
    1. Lower fees so you make more money.
    Well SWIFT is dropping it’s fees…

    2. Speed.
    Not sure what SWIFT is going to do here but I suppose since Ripple is open source isn’t it possible that SWIFT actually uses the Ripple technology and maintains it’s current bank clientele?

    If you’re a bank or business it’s a huge problem switching technologies..

    I’m absolutely confused! I read good things about Ripple and then something bad appears. I was thinking to invest small sum into this system because I know that what ever happens with balloony Bitcoin craze. Today I was seeing the price at almost $11.500 per bitcoin… WTF?! People lost their minds… and the interesting part here is that Bitcoin is not the best technology. It is just the first one, the pioneer.
    There a better cryptos with much better created blockchain systems, which I’m sure will be in use much longer in the future after the death of the Bitcoin.

    I hate banks, but from an investor’s point of view, if Ripple is much better than Swift, Bitcoin and other players in the niche, why leave it on the shelf.

    My problem is the buying process! I was looking to find how to buy it, but every time I just can’t understand how. Looks very complicate and my main concern is that I read many people got scammed by the exchangers. Why so complicated?!
    May be when Ripple starts in full, money from bank to bank or to other providers will take just seconds, not days like now.

    The miracle will be if or when Ripple becomes main payment system, the price per Ripple (XRP) to skyrocketing not to $2-$5, to go up beyond $20-$50… and why not 200-300 in the next 2-3-4 years!? Then a $1000 investment now, will be enough for one’s retirement.


    • Kimthekiwi

      December 11, 2017 at 1:31 am

      Use Etoro! You can put a stop loss in and increase it as the value of ripple increases. win win.
      I have no issues withdrawling from them and no mucking around with currencies and wallets etc.
      Just use USD once and done!

      • Callum

        December 21, 2017 at 11:21 pm

        Thats called a CFD and you speculate whether the price will rise or fall without owning the asset, whereas a wallet you own the coin and there is no margins limiting profit other than network and low transaction fees.

        • Newbie

          January 8, 2018 at 6:04 pm

          + Callum
          That’s correct. One should rather register on a platform like Altcointrader and buy the actual coins. Then send it to a private ripple wallet for safekeeping. Patience is the main thing here. Prices of all cryptocurrencies fluctuate sharply sometimes, but if you can look past that you’ll see they always return to their “normal” path. My investment in XRP is now 8 times it’s original value. The key is to: 1. Study the coin and not what others say about it. 2. Invest when the value is low. 3. Keep wallet info safe offline. 4. Don’t invest what you can NOT afford to lose. 5. Be patient.
          PS! 30 USD investment in Bitcoin in 2009 will now be worth more than 10 000 000 USD!

    • Justin Bird

      December 21, 2017 at 7:03 pm

      The problem with that, is that the market capitalism is high enough as it is. It is the 3rd or 4th largest cryptocurrency in terms of market cap and even if it were to jump ahead to first, would only jump this thing up to around 4$. Not quite the jump from >1$ to hundreds you were looking for. In simpler terms, if Ripple was to jump to 100$, then it would be valued at something like a trillion dollars, and everyone knows that isn’t the case. Personally hope it does though!

        Pretty sure all XRP wallets will do as you need 20 XRP to open an account, or reserve a wallet address on the network/blockchain/ledger (not sure what word is applicable). I believe it’s still yours to spend or sell later.
        Ripple works slightly different from most other currencies and that it one of it’s quirks, That’s about all I know.
        I’m only just starting to learn about crypto-currencies so i won’t pretend to know any more than that.

        December 16, 2017 at 10:29 am

        Put your money in the bank dude. If you think Ripple will reach 5000 you have no clue about market caps and shares. Ripple will never reach $100. With 100 billion coins at 100, it would make it more than all of the currencies combined on earth.

        • Adam

          December 21, 2017 at 5:15 am

          100 dollars is definitely plausible. If your talking about paper money or the M1 money supply that yes I don’t see it happening. If your talking about M3 money supplies I definitely see it happening. The US economy is 18 trillion. We are 1 country. BTW 55 billion is being held in escrow and being kept out of circulation.

          • Adam

            December 21, 2017 at 6:00 am

        2019 -> 128 dollars
        2020 -> 190 dollars.

        Probably it will peak around 250 dollar mark in a 5 year period.

      Hey, you should download the ledger wallet

      you install ripple on your ledger thrue the ledger manager. And you will have your wallet, its quite simple to be honest

      Than you have to activite your wallet by paying like $10 next step is that you select your wallet number and go to a site to buy ripple

      Hope this helps:)

        you can generate your ripple address after you instal ledger wallet ripple add ons in chrome browser. after that, you can send to your new ripple address. if require destination tag, you can choose any number. im choose destination tag: 1.
        and it works. you can try with small number of ripple to try it first.

        hope this help

I’m really getting confused in this part. Please someone help me out on this. Thanks in Advance

      December 8, 2017 at 9:20 am

      Have it in mind that portfolio like this is meant to be in the long term. Bitcoin went through storm before achieving its value.

      Thus, you need to be calm about it. As an investor, you must be patient, calm and not greedy. Ultimately, it’s a risk but pays off in the long term. You might be lucky in the short term, though.

      If you don’t have any other monies to invest, you may convert some of the ripples to iota.

      But I would advice you leave them and source cash for other portfolios.

    I bought in at .25 just 400 just to see how fast it will grow.
    My banker friends are in for way more.
    On band wagon to see where my 100.00 dollars grow to.

    Ripple will be synonymous with financial transactions globally over the next five years. The worlds most wealthy and safe institutions throughout history have been banks. Hence the saying safe as a bank. The Ripple effect will see banks engage its blockchain tech as they move to counter the growth of Bitcoin transactions. Load up on Ripple in 5 years time you’ll laugh at what you first invested in it for.

    I invested $8600 in ripple but ripple was a $2.70. I should have waited to drop before buying it but don’t know much about market. Why everything is low now. How high will ripple reach this year? I spent everything when it was high so don’t have any more spare money to buy now while is low. Any suggestions

      Cash advance on all cards and max it out, and go all in again. Also take out a loan on your home, or personal loan to the max.

    I hope people didn’t listen to this advice.. 10$ for a ripple? it will not make that mark in the next 5 years that’s for sure. Unless bitcoin raises to over 200k.
