Ripple price eyes breakout in the recent uptrend
Ripple price started a rally, posting 7% gains over the past week. Multinational payment giant Ripple geared up its plans to power the development of open-source projects on the XRP ledger.
Ripple announced a 1 billion XRP grant for developers building on the distributed ledger. The giant believes this would incentivize creators and developers to build projects following Ripple’s payment orientation.
One billion XRP tokens are the equivalent of $791 million at the current price. The announcement has fueled a bullish narrative for the altcoin among investors, as it could attract investors to the XRP.
An existing scheme of grants for project developers on the distributed ledger exists by the name of “XRPL Grants.” The initiative was launched in June 2021.
Grants for developers have boosted the pace of development, attracting more users and scaling the adoption of the altcoin. Analysts have evaluated the Ripple price trend and predicted a continuation of the altcoin’s price rally.
Analysts believe traders could take profits at $0.77 as Ripple price remains on track to hit the $1 target.
@rektcapital, a pseudonymous cryptocurrency analyst, believes Ripple price is on its way to $1 as it attempts to reclaim July 2021 support. Ripple price would eye $1 once it reclaims its July 2021 support at $0.94.
