Weeks ago, we have seen XRP's price going up. But just after receiving SEC warnings (Lawsuit) and some exchanges decided and announced to suspend XRP trading and delisting it, it's price went down.
According to mr. Lorenzo Stroe of FXStreet.com, XRP was trading at around $0.30 before Coinbase announced it would halt the trading of XRP around January 19, 2021. And just after that announcement, it's price then went below $0.20.
The digital asset then plummeted by more than 30% within 24 hours and seems to be poised for a bigger pullback as more exchanges are at risk of delisting the asset.
Possible continuous price drop of XRP?
According to mr. Lorenzo Stroe, XRP price could continue to drop despite what technicals say.
According to him, It is important for us to realize that recent XRP moves were not motivated by any sort of technical analysis. Although as he says, many indicators could show that XRP price is poised for a rebound, investors should be extremely careful as these will not be accurate.
As what he sees it, the amount of large XRP holders with 10,000,000 coins or more has dropped by 11 in the past four days. Similarly, the number of whales holding between 1,000,000 and 10,000,000 coins dropped from 1,253 to a current low of 1,116, which indicates that large holders are exiting their XRP positions.
He also stated that to him it seems that every US-based exchange will potentially delist XRP.
OKCoin has also delisted the asset recently, though it’s based in China which hints at the possibility of other global exchanges delisting XRP. And according to him, the next expected exchange to announce it is Kraken, but there are rumors that at least Binance.US is also looking into it.
