Trader: Bitcoin Bull Run Could “Force XRP Army To Surrender,” Admit Defeat
This week, Bitcoin shocked the world with a push beyond $15,000 and nearly hitting $16,000. At the time, altcoins bled out, but few more so than XRP.
One crypto trader has shared a nasty looking long-term chart for Ripple, and believes that Bitcoin’s rally could finally force the “XRP army” to surrender and “admit defeat.” Here’s how such a scenario plays out and how a reversal in Ripple may unfold.
Bitcoin’s Rally Ripple-Effect Crushes Top Altcoins
The leading cryptocurrency by market cap this week after taking out last year’s high at $13,800, rocketed another $2500 and nearly 20% higher to $15,900.
Bitcoin FOMO is back, and it has caused crypto investors to dump altcoins en masse to fund whatever BTC buying they can. Top altcoins dropped across the board and some even fell to new lows against BTC.
The comment shared along with the chart above, showing XRP falling to what is essentially the only remaining support level left. If the altcoin drops any further, it could cause waves of Ripple supporters to finally wave the white flag.
However, that capitulation could also be what finally causes Ripple to roar once again. In Martin’s chart, a strong piercing of the lower support resulted in an elastic band-like effect that sent XRP to its all-time high against BTC.
As Martin says, the XRP army could finally admit defeat during the early onset of Bitcoin’s bull run, however, that selloff could be the final drop before Ripple’s bull run starts, and like the last time, what began as a trickle, soon turned into a waterfall of record-shattering ROI.
