Crypto Analyst Says It’s ‘Do or Die’ Time for Ripple (XRP), Top Influencers Consider Extended Vacation
A veteran technical analyst famous for calling Bitcoin’s bear market in January of 2018 says XRP is at a crucial juncture.
Peter Brandt points to XRP’s current price at $0.2976 as a significant level of support. The digital asset has stayed above the $0.2861 mark since December of 2018.

Meanwhile, two of the top Ripple and XRP influencers on Twitter may need an extended break or a permanent vacation.
Twitter’s XRPTrump, who was nominated as one of crypto’s most influential people by CoinDesk last year, suddenly stopped tweeting more than a month ago. XRPTrump is known for posting frequent updates on Ripple and XRP, including detailed commentary on cross-border payments, blockchain technology and adoption.
He’s amassed a following of 32,500 XRP enthusiasts and crypto-curious Twitter users. His feed shows over 103,000 tweets.
Now, fellow Ripple and XRP superfan Tiffany Hayden who has 73,800 followers says she may follow suit.
@XRPTrump, I’m about ready to call it a wrap if you’re not coming back. I told you I wouldn’t be able to last much longer without you. I’m spent. I’ll wait for a real goodbye though. pic.twitter.com/PNjprAN4kB

Hayden further clarified the situation, pointing out that everyone needs a vacation from time to time.
“He is taking a looooong overdue and much needed break. I’m not trying to convince him to come back. I definitely don’t want us staying here for each other just so we can endure bad things longer.”
The so-called “XRP Army” has been a force on social media, creating campaigns like #XRPthebase to convince exchanges and other companies in the space to adopt the world’s third largest crypto asset.
