XRP, the cryptocurrency closely related with the company Ripple, has been at the center of speculation and arguments, with respect to xRapid and XRP’s price.

There have been a lot of accounts on Twitter promoting the fact that the price of XRP will rise and shoot to the moon, after banks and financial institutions start using xRapid for cross-border payments.

The most famous theory put out by people was the price of XRP hitting $589 by the end of 2018, which didn’t happen.

However, a recent conversation started by prominent XRP enthusiasts, has suggested that xRapid would not massively affect the price of XRP.

Nayer Malik [@sinjunsmyth], a Twitter user, stated,

“@galgitron @Hodor @jungleincxrp @C3_Nik …Guys what r ur thoughts on Bob Way’s view regarding X-Rapid usage not increasing the price in and of itself?”

In response, Galgitron [@galgitron], a prominent XRP enthusiast and a contributor to the XRP community, added that he had “been saying that all along.” In one of his blogs Galgitron stated,

“Sure, there may be some massive FOMO buy-in once banks announce they are starting to use xRapid, and that will send the monkey [price action] hundreds of feet into the air, but, only speculation creates parabolics..”

C3|Nik [@C3_Nik] acknowledged the above and replied,

“It was seen like blasphemy to say that xRapid would not move prices that much by itself (e.g. “not the flip-the-switch kind of event”). It is interesting that the people who spread that narrative and misled others still have so many followers. Selling dreams.”

A Twitter user, @Crypt_Megalodon, voiced his opinion, which was different from the others. He tweeted,

“Well when you consider the US money supply being 15 trillion alone, the XRP cap doesn’t worry me. If/when XRP becomes the standard world wide, inflation will be rapid with mass adoption. I agree, with years, but, the value can be prodigious! The cryptoloution has already started.”

Considering the price of XRP at press time was only $0.31, and that there were more than a couple of Ripple customers that had already started using xRapid for cross-border transactions, the increase in the price of XRP due to xRapid seemed highly unlikely.
