Financial commentator and co-founder of Black Swan Capitalist Vandell Aljara discussed the historical performance of XRP and predicted the coin’s growth during the current bullish trend.

Vandell Aljarrah wrote on social media X that investors who bought XRP in January 2016 at $0.0065 and sold in 2018 at a peak of $3.84 should see their modest investment grow into millions of dollars. . That is. If investors invested $5,000 in XRP in 2016, then in two years their investments would have grown to $2.9 million, Aljara explained.

Despite concerns that XRP will not be able to follow this uptrend due to a lack of additional capital, Aljara remains confident in the coin’s prospects. The expert believes that in 2025 XRP will show even more significant growth. This is partly due to the fact that the coin has found practical use in international payments thanks to the XRP Ledger ecosystem.

However, former Ripple CEO Sean McBride is not too optimistic about XRP. He does not believe that the coin will make a jump anytime soon, even amid the bullish rally in the crypto market. According to McBride, the XRP rate will change only if Ripple completely wins the lawsuit with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Recently, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse suggested that after the advent of spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds, ETFs tied to XRP should appear in the United States.
