A post from one of Twitter’s most popular crypto analysts is going viral.
The Crypto Dog told his 122,000 followers the next crypto bull run could bring the price of XRP to $300 in a matter of months, alluding to the adoption of Ripple’s XRP-based payment solution xRapid.

A rise to $300 would be an 84,000% increase for XRP, and with the coin’s current circulating supply, would place XRP’s market cap at about $12.5 trillion. Right now, the market cap of all cryptocurrencies combined is $182.8 billion, according to CoinMarketCap.
As the tweet spread like wildfire, The Crypto Dog quickly posted a follow up saying, “In another corner of Twitter not too far from here this very same tweet is circulating, except the likes aren’t ironic.”
He also retweeted a fellow analyst who noted the prediction is meant to be a joke.
Dog is only kidding but we all know the potential price of Bitcoin at the top of next cycle peak
