XRP, which is now the fourth most valuable crypto asset by market capitalization, has had 800 million XRP taken back from an escrow account to Ripple in an unprecedented manner.

However, a top Crypto expert, Pentoshi in a message to his followers recently via Twitter expects XRP to lose roughly half of its remaining value in the near future.
“In my opinion, the dust will settle in the next few weeks/months somewhere in-between $0.07-$0.12.Liquidity will dry up. ODL can’t be used on Bitstamp. More exchanges will halt trading. Larger players will continue to de-risk and get rid of excess inventory. Just the way I see it.”
