In spite of the current market stagnation, XRP’s price forecast remains bearish. It has gone below the symmetrical support level of $0.3735. At present, XRP is trading below the double bottom support level at $0.3565. Will XRP break the $3 mark? Let’s find out more.
Recently, Vitalik Buterin launched a strong attack on Ripple and XRP, mainly targeting XRP’s tokenomics and framework, as well as the high centralization costs.
Earlier this week, he gave an interview to Bankless, during which he rejected the idea that the company was becoming more decentralized in response to criticism.
“An on-chain data structure is necessary for any project in the crypto space.
Moreover, he mentioned that Ripple has not apologized yet for telling the US government that China has control over Ethereum (ETH) and Bitcoin (BTC).
“XRP has not taken responsibility for asserting that Bitcoin and Ethereum are controlled by China.
XRP can be described as a digital asset. In response to Buterin’s opinion, Ripple CTO David Schwartz answered him on Twitter, stating that Buterin “still doesn’t understand, or pretends not to understand, that Ripple is a company.”
