How to buy Ripple in France
Is XRP a good investment in France?
One thing you should check to find out if XRP is a good investment is checking its value over the years. In August of 2013, the first year after its release, each XRP was sold at 0.01 USD. Later in December 2017, it reached its highest price of 2.28 USD per unit. It shows the price of XRP rose more than 70,000 percent in only five years. Therefore, it was a great investment for people who bought even the minimum amount of this cryptocurrency. However, XRP had many ups and downs until it reached 0.42 USD in October 2022. Some investors believe that XRP may reach 100 USD per unit in the next 10 years, which is not impossible! The more the banks and financial institutions accept XRP in their transactions, the higher its price will get.
*Remember, the world of cryptocurrencies is so volatile, the price of a coin changes each day. Nothing is 100% guaranteed in this world. However, most of the analysts recommend thinking about a long-term investment while buying XRP. But you should still know that you are stepping into a risky world. As the price history shows, XRP had many ups and downs that shows the volatility of the cryptocurrency world. One day you may win and one incident in the world may affect the price of crypto and make you lose your investment. It is better to define an exit point for yourself. If the price of XRP went lower than that amount, sell your tokens.
