Ripple’s latest partnership brings NFT to the masses
Ripple announced a new partnership that could boost the XRP Ledger’s growth in NFT markets. In the past few days, NFTs on Ripple have not performed well. Interestingly, despite the ongoing litigation with US financial regulator Securities and Exchange Commission, Ripple has continued to show improvements in its NFT performance.
The two technology firms will work together to secure more partnerships and boost utility and demand for NFTs on Ripple. Ethereal Labs is a respected player in web3.0 with its projects of virtual artworks for Lionel Messi and Toys R Us among other firms.
Adrian Baschuk, COO of Ethereal Labs believes virtual art has remained a privilege of select few due to its “siloed” nature. Baschuk argues that Ripple users will soon see customized collections from leading artists.
David Schwartz, CTO at Ripple hinted at the possibility of FTX employees pursuing a career at the cross-border payment settlement firm. A similar offer was made by Schwartz to Twitter employees.
SEC v. Ripple case has dragged on for nearly two years now. However, the payment giant has continued exploring new avenues and innovating on XRP Ledger.
Analysts are bullish on XRP price
Analysts evaluated the XRP price chart and predicted a rally in the altcoin. After trading sideways for a long time, XRP could break out to the $0.56 level. If bulls push XRP price to the $0.50 zone, a run to the $0.56 level is likely.
