Maybe there’s more money to be made by wish-wash trading it down? Besides that: a wave of new investors has to be built up, it takes time and good news to hype upon. They can push prices only so high with the existing invested capital, but without inflow of new money a ROI like in 2017 is not gonna happen. New retail investors, institutional capital and most of all : Asia! Without the Far East no bullruns imo.
XRP went up 35000% from jan 2017 till jan 2018. Eoy € 10 would mean it multiplies 1600 times in 2 years. Not impossible, but not very probable at this stage.
Real world usage ( of whatever DA, but preferably XRP ofcourse) of blockchain and DA’s, institutional money and/or some irrational hype is needed.
