Devastating 92% drop for Ripple

Ripple faces criticism after price fixing allegations. Rumours of future use of XRP are thwarted leaving investors uncertain about this cryptocurrency.

XRP has struggled to make a comeback after the widespread dumping of crypto, owed to the coronavirus back in March, while BTC and ETH have made rapid recoveries.

In a recent interview Marcus Treacher, SVP of Customer Success at Ripple was questioned about XRP. He stated that Ripple would be expanding the On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) service which uses XRP as a bridge currency between two fiat currencies. XRP has already established On-Demand Liquidity corridors into Mexico, the Philippines, Australia and Europe, and this company is currently working on expansion by opening corridors to APAC (Asia –Pacific Countries) And EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) this year.

He also refers to the partnership between Ripple and Banco Santander that has developed a blockchain-based mobile app that offers speedy international payments.


“ the bank uses RippleNet to offer same-day international payments with an easy mobile experience,” he added

But notwithstanding these endeavours, Ripple constantly faces criticism. Some crypto observers argue that the company deliberately tempers the growth of the XRP, they allege the massive XRP reserves  Ripple still controls are subject to controlled “dumps” on investors.

The last 48 hours have seen XRP rally, possibly due to the interview with Treacher, and the speculation that ODL services will be established in APAC and EMEA countries this year.

Rise and fall of Ripple (XRP)

However, will confidence in XRP recover? Will there be a return to the former COVID19 prices? Or will Ripple step in and ‘dump’ more XRP on the market in an attempt to manipulate the price?
