Ripple (XRP) Rally as Binance Allows USD Funding
News from one of the world’s largest crypto-exchanges that it plans to allow customers to buy some tokens directly with fiat currencies sent Ripple surging overnight. Currently customers have to use either Bitcoin or Ethereum to but other cryptocurrencies on the exchange, or use Tether (USDT), they will soon have the option to use US dollars, easing the path for investors to buy a range of cryptocurrencies. Customers will also be able to sell cryptocurrencies directly back into US dollars.
After hitting a peak around $3.30 in early January, XRP has fallen back sharply with little in the way of fundamental news to prop up the token. Currently trading at $0.85, XRP is now closing in on the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of the December – January rally at $0.87 and a cluster of February resistance under $0.95. A break and close above would open the way higher to $1.15 and the 61.8% Fibonacci resistance at $1.38.
