Ripple price sees newfound interest amidst resurfaced Central Bank Digital Currency rumors.
Ripple’s XRP price ascends after the company launches the official headquarters in Toronto with plans to hire 100 new employees. Theories that Ripple may become a pivotal technology for Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC) have long been assumed in the crypto space. Ripple themselves have taken to Twitter, hinting at the possibility.
Ripple price, as of Saturday, June 25, trades at $0.36. The digital remittance token has shown an influx in buying pressure on intra-hour time frames. If the technicals can sustain, the bulls will likely print a bullish Morning Star pattern which will be a favorable entry signal for long-term investors. As previously mentioned, a break above the psychological $0.40 barrier could trigger a buying frenzy in the coming weeks to propel the XRP price back to $0.51.
XRP/USDT 1-Week Chart
With talks of Ripple becoming a CBDC integrative solution, and a sudden demand for new employees, the legendary rumor of Ripple becoming a one-world currency to replace the US dollar is starting to resurface on social media.
History has shown that Cryptocurrenies can be highly aroused in value solely from social media hype. The CBDC speculation (though unproven) could be enough to create a FOMO-style market environment for the Ripple price in the coming weeks. A $0.51 target is conservative, but a $1.00 target will be unsurprising if the one-world currency myth continues to kindle on social media.
Anyone looking to join the bullish speculation should keep the previous weekly low as their invalidation point at $0.28. If the bears can breach this barrier, a fall to $0.20 could occur, resulting in a 40% decrease from the current Ripple price.
