The 4-hour Ripple price chart shows us that XRP had dropped to $0.77 on the 6th. XRP pushed up from this level, as it rose above the 20-bar SMA on the 7th, moving to $0.84 before dropping to $0.80. However, the 20-bar SMA propped up the price at this level, as it rose back to $0.87 before registering a marginal drop thanks to the 50-bar SMA. XRP pushed above the 50-bar SMA on the 9th when it rose to $0.90 but could not stay at this level, as the price fell back to $0.79, slipping back below the 20 and 50-bar SMAs. Currently, the price has risen to $0.82.

We can see that the MACD and Parabolic SAR are both bearish, indicating that we could see the price drop further.

Ripple Proposes Cryptocurrency Regulation Approach

Fintech firm Ripple recently explained, “how existing financial regulatory frameworks can be used to advance innovation and enhance consumer and market protections.” In a three-page document published by Ripple, the firm described its “vision of a pragmatic regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies, blockchain-enabled payments and digital assets.” 

Ripple mentioned that it hopes for “a regulatory framework that encourages the unleashed potential of cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies, while also establishing important consumer and market protections.”

Ripple believes that “any legislation or policy framework intended to regulate cryptocurrencies should promote an active dialogue between regulators and market participants” since such “public-private collaboration” should “lead to more tailored and effective policy outcomes for the industry and consumers alike.”

Furthermore, according to Ripple, “U.S. financial markets are considered first in class, and that is due in part to the existing regulatory framework under which they operate.” They say that this framework (providing it was “adapted” to “account for some of the unique attributes inherent to cryptocurrencies) could “provide the clarity innovators seek – and the market protections consumers deserve.”

The firm gave examples of two existing legislative proposals in this area: “the Securities Clarity Act (SCA)” and “the Digital Commodity Exchange Act (DCEA, H.R. 8373 in the 116th Congress).” Ripple concluded that “each of the above proposals – whether implemented separately or together –can succeed in keeping industry within the US, while also maintaining the strong consumer and investor protections that have made American capital markets the best in the world.”

Ripple Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels

Looking at the Ripple price chart, we see that XRP has fallen back during the ongoing session. If the current sentiment persists, the price could drop to $0.80 or below, although the price does have support at $0.79.
