NEW YORK – The future of XRP’s value has become a hot topic on Crypto Crossfire, a segment on Ben Armstrong’s channel. On today, a panelist known as AJ sparked a discussion by favoring the introduction of an exchange-traded fund (ETF) over Ripple‘s initial public offering (IPO) as a more effective catalyst for driving XRP’s price to the speculated target of $25.
AJ pointed to the historical market reactions to similar events in the cryptocurrency space, such as the boost experienced by Bitcoin following the launch of its futures ETF. He referenced the decline in Coinbase (NASDAQ:COIN)’s valuation post-IPO to support his argument that public offerings have a limited direct impact on cryptocurrency prices. Instead, he suggested that an ETF could lead to more substantial gains for XRP.
Countering AJ’s perspective, Armstrong emphasized the unpredictable nature of the cryptocurrency market. He argued that an IPO could still positively influence digital asset prices. Armstrong focused on the benefits to shareholders that typically accompany such events, despite any temporary declines in stock prices following an IPO.
The debate comes at a time when XRP is trading at $0.6468, which marks a considerable distance from the ambitious $25 mark that is being speculated. The discussions shed light on different strategic approaches that could potentially influence the cryptocurrency’s value trajectory in the future.
