Although Ripple’s performance over the past few weeks has been dismal to say the least, and holders of the cryptocurrency have missed out on many of the massive gains that other cryptocurrencies have been experiencing, XRP incurred a sudden burst of buying volume today that has allowed it to surge 4%.
Now, analysts are setting their sights on further gains for the embattled cryptocurrency, with one analyst setting a target of $0.48 – assuming XRP is able to follow through with its current surge.
At the time of writing Ripple is trading up 3.4% at its current price of $0.332 and is up its daily lows of $0.32 – a level at which XRP has found support over the past several days.
Although the crypto markets as a whole experienced some massive upwards swings over the past few weeks, with Bitcoin climbing from lows of $4,000 to highs of $5,400, XRP only briefly surged to highs of $0.37 from lows of $0.30, before settling down towards its current price levels.
This dull price action was certainly disappointing to Ripple investors, as the crypto has previously incurred massive gains during market surges.
