The coin broke below $0.3250. This support zone was is created by the upper boundary of a broken channel. Now the focus shifted towards $0.3090-$0.3040 support zone, guarded by a cluster of SMA levels on 4-hour chart.

The head of SBI Holdings Yoshitaka Kitao believes that Ripple company and its token XRP will create a revolution on the cryptocurrency market.
“We will do everything in our hands to promote the mass adoption and practical usage of virtual coin XRP. We will also supply tools that will allow institutional investors to gain access to digital currencies,” he said in the interview with the Japanese local outlet CoinPost.
Also, Mr. Kitao expressed an opinion that XRP would surpass Bitcoin by market value.
“In the essence, Bitcoin has no value. The current price of Bitcoin is an obstacle to its practical use. That’s why I believe that XRP will become the cryptocurrency No. 1. At least we are pushing for it”, he added.
