At press time, XRP continues to trade above the $1.3 level that was a pipe dream for its holders just a week ago.

Too expensive?

XRP’s stellar rally has been propelled by a string of Ripple’s legal wins in discovery fights with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

However, as reported by U.Today, Galaxy Digital CEO Mike Novogratz warned that the token could be too expensive if there is no settlement in sight.

The token’s market cap is currently sitting above $60 billion, according to CoinMarketCap data.

Eyeing a new all-time high

Commodity trader Peter Brandt recently predicted that XRP could notch a new all-time high.

XRP is still down about 60 percent from its historic peak of $3.40 that was set on Jan. 7, 2018. This is about the same as IOTA (MIOTA), another major cryptocurrency that was flying high during the previous bull run.

For comparison, Stellar (XLM) is only down 33 percent from its all-time high of $0.87.
