Ripple (XRP) Price Analysis: Ripple is Alleged of Under-reporting from Escrow Accounts; Bullish Long-term Outlook Remains

  • Ripple has been dragged to the soup after Coin Metrics found discrepancies in the escrow reporting.
  • The 2019 target remains unchanged at 1 USD.

Ripple (XRP) has been again dragged to the contention for wrong reasons. Recently a major blockchain company Coin Metrics has discovered in Ripple’s escrow account reporting system. It has found a contradiction in Ripple’s reporting system, which needs to be investigated. The report states, “Coin Metrics found several important discrepancies between what was publicly reported by Ripple and what was visible on the XRP ledger.” As per the findings, Ripple has an under-reported number of XRP coins released from the escrow account. This finding has an immense negative impact on the price path of Ripple. However, the medium-term outlook is bullish. The 2019 prediction target rests at $1. We should now analyze the current figures of Ripple coin to understand the growth pattern.
