This is an observation of XRP from its origin. Here I have drawn comparisons to the stock market trends that happened during the time of the internet bubble, and from that, tried to realize what looks to be higher lows in the longest-term time frame.
Statements are made in text boxes on the graph. Make sure you view the entire timeline. I argue that we cannot expect anything other than a consolidation on the green line before we begin to see an accurate representation of the technologies value. I look forward to seeing if lows break the green line.
This is general optimistic speculation looking at very long-term patterns while ignoring the effects of the bubble that happened last year. Don't take this as investment advice.
