Peter Brandt, the author of “Diary of a Professional and Commodity Trader” and a well-known trader tweeted the charts of Steller Lumens [XLM] and XRP on January 21, 2019.
Brandt tweeted the technical analysis chart of Stellar Lumens and set the first target as $0.0653 and the next one at $0.00150 and said “so basically worthless. Sorry.”
A user, @BrandonVanB replied to Brandt’s tweet:
“@PeterLBrandt do you have any insight into XRP (Ripple). The fundamentals look amazing.”
Peter Brandt replied to @BrandonVanB with another technical analysis chart saying: “XRP is definitely coiling up”
“Coiling Up” is a technical term used to signify a market which has the potential to make a strong move in one direction after being pushed in the opposite direction or held flat. The idea is that if a market should be headed in one direction due to its fundamentals but has pressure in the opposite direction, it will eventually make a strong move in the course of the original fundamental direction.
Moreover, the coiled move will be more significant and substantial than the move if it would have continued in the normal direction without interference.
Brandt’s tweet doesn’t necessarily mean that the movement of price will move upwards, it could go either way. In addition to the technicals, Ripple is on a crusade with a slew of partnerships with various institutions around the world.
Ripple has over 200+ partnerships which are spread over 40 countries and each one of them is using Ripple’s blockchain solutions, be it xRapid, xCurrent, or xVia.
Brandt’s tweet faced a lot of commotion in the community as Brandt had said that “XRP will replace NO portion of global forex trading volume” in August 2017.
@CarpeNoctom replied to Brandt’s tweet saying:
“Almost every crypto chart looks like that
So I guess everything is worthless soon
Sorry not sorry”
Another Twitter user, @OSD728 commented:
“If the prices of xlm do go that low I will definitely buy more not saying I want it to but still that’s a good entry point”
Peter Brandt is well-known for his prediction of the 2018 crash of cryptocurrencies and for his accurate predictions when it comes to technical analysis or charting.

Ripple-backed XRPL Labs releases XRPayments on Playstore and App store
The Ripple-backed startup, XRPL Labs had been working on various technologies to develop the ecosystem. One of these technologies, XRPayment, was in its testing phase and has been finally launched and made available on the Google Play store and Apple app store.
Wietse Wind, the developer of XRPtipbot and one of the developers at XRPL Labs, informed the XRP community about this on his Twitter. Wind stated:
“Right on time! 🎉 🎉 🎉 Our XRPayments app was just accepted by Google and Apple. You can get the app now from the Apple iOS or Google Play store, and start accepting $XRP for payments in your physical store!”
The application received a lot of traction, especially from the XRP enthusiasts, however, one of the users pointed out an issue he encountered while using the application. Twitter user @almost_summer_ asked Wind:
“hi Wietse great job! just downloaded it, if i open the coinbase or uphold wallet app i can scan the QR but it does not auto fill in the amount of XRP to send. the XRPay web version did fill in the amounts. is that supposed to be like that?”
Wind replied to the user saying that the team wanted users to think about the amount they and perhaps tip the service. He also added:
“Some wallet apps can read a pre filled amount, and the web version implemented that, thus breaking support with some other clients. For this app we wanted 100% support, so we left out the pre filled amount feature for now.”
Wind and the team are also working on a ‘signing platform’ which will enable the users to sign and approve transactions from an application or the web application from any developer, without sharing their mnemonic, through a push message or QR code.
