Crypto analyst Crypto Eggag has shared another bullish prediction on the price of XRP, saying that the crypto token could soon reach triple digits. As part of his forecast, the analyst also listed several key price levels that XRP could reach on the path to $220.
XRP Price Could Reach $220 This Year
Crypto Eggag highlighted the $220 price level as one of the numbers that XRP price could reach based on its analysis of Fibonacci levels. Interestingly, the attached chart he shared shows that this price level could be reached this year.

Based on his analysis, XRP would hit “crucial numbers” such as the $1.2, $2.2, $5.8, $11, and $33 price levels before hitting $220.
The analyst assured that this price movement would undoubtedly be parabolic as he explained that it would be a GRB (Gamma-Ray Burst) event. He also noted that such a development could end up reflecting a similar development to that of the XRP price in 2017, when it increased by 61,000%.
Meanwhile, Egrag provided insight into when the XRP bull market could begin by highlighting the 12 and 24 SMA (simple moving average) as a “clear signal.” Once there is a bullish crossover above them, the bull run could take place almost a month later, according to the crypto analyst.
Steven McClurg, chief investment officer (CIO) of Valkyrie, hinted in a recent interview that an XRP ETF could hit the market at some point. His comments came as he suggested that the imminent approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs could open the door to other ETF applications centered around tokens such as XRP and Ethereum.
In response to McClurg’s interview, Fox business reporter Eleanor Terrett shared some thoughts based on conversations she had with some industry players about an XRP ETF. She explained in an article that there are “diverging views” on whether the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is ready to approve a single-product XRP spot ETF.
She noted that bulls argue that the XRP token will be included in future funds, especially since it is the only digital asset with clear regulation. They also highlighted Grayscale’s decision to re-incorporate the token into the Grayscale Digital Large Cap (GDLC) fund as a positive sign that there will soon be an XRP ETF.
On the other hand, Terrett says bears argue that an XRP ETF can only be approved with congressional intervention on crypto regulation or a change in government. This argument is based on their belief that SEC Chairman Gary Gensler is unlikely to change his stance on crypto assets other than Bitcoin.
