Coinbase suppressing XRP
An apparent Ripple insider, barableguy123 /u/bearableguy123 seems to point to: Coinbase suppressing the price of XRP. Here's one post on the day CoinMarketCap.com decided to exclude Korean cryptocurrency prices from their global market averages--artificially halting XRP's rapid price surge.
The king here most likely is Coinbase. Soldiers refers to representatives of other crypto currencies.
When XRP moons, the founders of Ripple become billionaires; conceivably, Bitcoin community would like to maintain status quo--keep Bitcoin the dominant crypto. Perhaps we could assume 3 things:
- XRP price would be suppressed until Bitcoin is well above $20K
- Powerful people in the crypto sub-culture manipulate assets to benefit themselves.
- XRP price surge can't be contained for long--a huge opportunity for small investors to make x10 or x20 atleast !
