Ripple Nears Major Converging Point: Analyst Says XRP Could Breakout

As the cryptocurrency attempts to gain momentum, Ripple has seen 2.4 billion XRP traded in as it attempts a breakthrough at $0.53. Indeed, the token is currently trading at $0.529, and is up less than 1% over the last 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap.

However, XRP has also seen its trading volume increase, surging by as much as 8% on Wednesday. Currently, the market is seeking to propel the cryptocurrency, which has remained stagnant for much of the last few months. Subsequently, increased activity has many hoping for an impending rally to start in June.

Ripple Trading Volume Surges as XRP Eyes Much-Needed Breakthrough

Throughout 2024 thus far, the digital asset market has been a focal point of the finance sector. With the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approving two crypto-based ETFs, the exposure of the industry has surged. However, that positive sentiment has yet to infiltrate some of the most promising tokens entering the year.

That has been the case for Ripple, which has struggled to break out of the $0.50 level for the last several months. Despite ending 2023 with a wealth of potential regarding its price, the asset has been left with an absence of momentum amid a relatively surging market.

That could be poised to change for Ripple, as 2.4 billion XRP are on the move and the asset looks to break through from the $0.53 level. Such an ascension could be the start of a rally that traders have hoped for. Indeed, June remains a month to watch for the cryptocurrency.

The asset has several developments that could feed into the overall price projection for the asset this month. Ripple’s CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, recently discussed the inevitability of a Spot Ripple ETF. Such an approval would undoubtedly catapult XRP, with its already vital importance in cross-border settlements.

Additionally, Ripple is poised to launch a US dollar-pegged stablecoin at some point in 2024. That could breed some renewed interest in the Ripple ecosystem. Moreover, it could work to fuel interest in XRP, as the company sees a stark increase in attention.

Finally, all eyes are on the eventual conclusion of the ongoing lawsuit with the SEC. Many experts have viewed that situation as a reason XRP has been held back. If a conclusion arrives in the next several months, expect Ripple to reflect that.
