XRP rising despite the XRP release

On September 1, Whale Alert, the website that tracks financial transactions on the blockchain, published a post on its Twitter page that 1 bln XRP was unlocked from Ripple’s escrow.

This brought up another wave of criticism towards Ripple and accusations of them working against XRP investors.

Ripple sells large portions of XRP on a quarterly basis. The money is used for the company’s development, for new partnerships, collaborations and for increasing XRP utility. The latter was the reason cited directly by Brad Garlinghouse, the Ripple CEO, in a recent series of tweets in which he addressed the FUD that has been recently spread around Ripple and XRP.

At present, XRP is trading at $.026.

Will XRP reach $100 by the end of 2019?

This was the question recently posted by the XRP_News Twitter account that publishes positive news on Ripple’s XRP asset.

The most optimistic replies were that XRP should at least reach $1 or $3.75.
