Ripple jumps on the NFT wagon
XRP Ledger is evolving into an NFT platform. Proponents have noted that the XRP Ledger has features that support NFT functionality. The platform was launched in 2012, and evolving to power NFTs is a key milestone.
The platform runs on XLS-20, a standard that will power seamless functionality for NFTs. The standard is yet to receive the community’s approval. Once approved, RippleX will support the development of NFTs on its network.
The payments giant will partner with the Mintable project, the digital item marketplace, to power NFTs. Ripple’s On-Demand Liquidity (ODL) corridor has posted 130% quarter-over-quarter growth. Ripple’s partnerships in Asia have boosted the utility of XRP, and the platform has grown 2400% over a year.
Ripple’s ODL corridor between Japan and the Philippines is driving the adoption of XRP.
The volume of daily active addresses is up from 11,300 to 1,42,700. There is over an 11 times increase in the on-chain activity on the XRP network.
Ethereum’s high transaction fees have negatively impacted NFT developers and users on the network. Transaction fees on XRP Ledger are expected to be much lower than ETH, fueling higher adoption of NFTs.
Proponents consider that XRP price is at a make or break point. Earlier this week, whales moved $14 million worth of XRP tokens from exchanges. Whale movements are indicative of a trend reversal in XRP price.
FXStreet analysts believe that XRP price will skyrocket to $2.

XRP Price Prediction: Ripple Price Could Drop 14% To $0.8405
XRP price dropped below the $1.0 psychological level on November 26, unravelling a possible bearish forecast. This provided a buying opportunity for investors who bought the dip, but the uptrend hit a wall and got stopped by the upper boundary of the descending parallel channel. This chart pattern continues to govern XRP’s price action pointing to further losses.
XRP Price Bears Contemplate A 14% Decline To $0.8405
Ripple price fell below the $1.0 psychological level on November 26, paving the way for further losses. The bulls of the international remittances token attempted to undo the losses in four straight bullish sessions between November 27 and 30, but their efforts were curtailed by resistance from the upper boundary of the governing chart pattern.
XRP price is trading at upper boundary of the descending parallel channel around $0.9787 as seen on the daily chart. A descending parallel channel is a significantly bearish chart pattern that suggests a continued bearish leg as long as the price of an asset remains within the confines of the falling channel.
If Ripple price fails to rise above the falling channel, it may drop towards the middle boundary of the channel at $0.9094. A further drop past this level could see XRP/USD drop to tag the lower boundary of the channel at $0.8425, a 14% drop from the current price.
The down-sloping moving averages and the position of the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator at 38.97 close to the oversold region suggest that Ripple is firmly in the hands of the bears, accentuating this bearish outlook.
XRP/USD Daily Chart Live Chart
On the upside, the bearish thesis could be invalidated if XRP price overcomes the immediate resistance at $0.9844 embraced by the upper boundary of the governing channel. If this happens, XRP price may potentially undo the losses that began on November 08 by breaking out to regain the $1.00 level.
A movement further up could take Ripple towards the $1.09 level where the 50 and 100-day SMAs coincide.

Ripple’s price action
Ripple’s price does not seem to consider major funds moving in a market with the price continuously moving in the same trend. The asset has broken the four-day uptrend by dropping below $0.98.
XRP was one of many victims of the global cryptocurrency market correction that took place on the market due to a rise of risk-off tendencies after the aggravation of the pandemic all over the world.
Previously, U.Today reported that numerous whales have made large transactions from various centralized exchanges back to their wallets. Such a trend is tied to overall outflows tendencies on the cryptocurrency market.
