The Ripple’s XRP Sell-off and Outlook

In response to the SEC lawsuit and the delisting and planned delistings, Ripple’s XRP has seen things go from bad to worse.

Just this week, Ripple’s XRP is down by 25.6%. Since November’s high of $0.78716, Ripple’s XRP has tumbled by 73.2% to $0.21101.

The pullback comes off the back of two impressive weekly gains of 65.7% and 35.59% in the run-up to the SEC lawsuit.

While Ripple’s XRP has recovered from a December low of $0.17208, downward pressure remains. Delistings by more exchanges will further reduce liquidity and spur more panic selling.

According to reports, it may take some time for Ripple Lab – SEC battle to conclude. The high degree of uncertainty will be another cause for concern for Ripple’s XRP investors.
