Ethereum & Ripple Price Prediction:

Both coins have shown a low-high-low trend and maintaining a similar pace owing to the traders investing almost equally in both coins. However, if we look individually, ETH has come a long way from its initial starting value of the year of $133 while XRP is still trading within the same limits of $0.35 and $0.50. This indicates that while ETH may rise as high as $500 by the end of 2019, XRP may close the year around $0.9.


ETH and XRP both have a bright future and can pay huge returns in the long run.
