Despite XRP, the seventh-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, currently trading in the red, the crypto community predicts a positive outlook for the digital asset, estimating it will trade above $0.90 by the end of April.
The CoinMarketCap community, with a 77% prediction accuracy, has forecast that the price of XRP on April 30, 2022, will stand at $0.91 with 2,727 votes. The estimated price indicates a $0.09 (+11.42%) increase from the digital asset’s current value of $0.82.
Meanwhile, the votes from 1,147 community members for the end of May have set a somewhat lower goal than April’s, estimating that XRP would trade at $0.89 on May 31, which is still up by $0.07 (8.89%) from its price at press time.
Historically, the crypto community has predicted the prices of this cryptocurrency with an accuracy rate of 77.57% based on the success of estimates made over the last six months.
This prediction comes as Ripple, a software company independent of XRP but a player within the XRP ecosystem, is still waging a turbulent and headline-grabbing legal battle against the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). As Finbold earlier reported, Ripple expects it to drag on no longer than the second half of November 2022.
The lawsuit, which the SEC filed against Ripple and two of its executives in December 2022, alleges that the company had sold its token as an investment product without the regulator’s permission between 2013 and December 2020, when the SEC sued.
