XRP is one of the few cryptos with impressive price action this year. The cryptocurrency has been in the public eye for the past few months, as traders wait eagerly for XRP to embark on a major bull run ultimately. However, the crypto has been down for the past few days amidst ongoing market consolidation. Price action shows that XRP is down by 9% in a 7-day timeframe and is currently trading at $0.59.
A recent price prediction made by the cryptocurrency exchange Changelly suggests that the value of XRP could skyrocket to the moon very soon. Its new price forecast says it could surge over 1,700 times its current value over this decade. This would cause the price of one unit of the token to increase from its current level of approximately $0.60 to more than $11 by 2030.
Changelly’s Very Bullish Prediction
XRP’s growth has mostly been deterred since 2020 by the SEC’s lawsuit with Ripple, the technology company tied to the crypto asset. The situation changed recently in July 2023, and XRP is now in a position to step out of the shadow cast by this lawsuit.
Although XRP’s price chart has rebounded at a resistance at the $0.70 level and looks like is going to end today with a red bearish candle, general sentiment still remains bullish in the long term.
According to Changelly’s XRP price prediction, the crypto points to a 63 greed on the XRP Fear-Greed Index. As a result, the exchange puts the monthly closing price at $0.8032, a 33.87% increase from its current price.
The optimistic outlook of the crypto exchange extends well beyond the scope of the current year’s forecast. Changelly predicted that XRP could break above its current all-time high of $3.84 by 2027.

Assuming the trend of price appreciation continues, XRP may surpass the $10 threshold by 2030, registering an average and maximum price of $9.71 and $11.37 respectively. This represents a staggering 1,790% increase from its current price. Additionally, the company also projects XRP reaching an average price of $19.91 in the two years after and a maximum price of $23.46 by 2032.
How Feasible Is This Projection?
As of right now, XRP is the only crypto with a clear regulatory status in the US. Changelly’s price prediction is obviously very bullish, but it resonates with the larger sentiment among crypto traders and analysts.
In the short term, most analysts expect XRP price to remain volatile but trade within the $0.6 to $1 range for the remainder of 2023. Very bullish predictions have come for a larger timeframe. Analyst ERGAG CRYPTO has set various targets for XRP’s price, ranging from $5 to $27. From a technical perspective, XRP’s price just entered a Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA) ranging zone, presenting an opportunity for buying more xRP.
There’s no guarantee that XRP will reach $10 or even come close, but Ripple’s progress with various financial institutions and payment providers fuels optimism about XRP’s future value over the next decade.
