Why addition of XRP to Binance Dual Investment products matters

Binance users can buy cryptocurrencies at a lower price and sell them at a higher price in the future through dual investment products. The world’s largest exchange by volume has added XRP to this list and this allows users to earn a high yield during the subscription period irrespective of the direction in which the price moves. 

Binance currently offers two types of dual investment products, buy low and sell high. The new XRP product is available for trade on Binance from October 4, 10:00 UTC and the subscription format is first come first serve. The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for the product ranges between 4% and 179%. 

The official announcement noted that the product may stop accepting new subscriptions at any moment. 

XRP holders are awaiting updates on the ongoing SEC v. Ripple case to identify the direction in which the altcoin’s price will move. The latest court ruling lacks updates and comments and the general sentiment among holders is bullish. 

David Gokhstein, an XRP proponent and crypto educator, believes Ripple is closer to a win in the lawsuit.

Analysts predict 50% rally in XRP price

Analysts have evaluated the Ripple price trend and predicted a breakout in the altcoin. Yashu Gola, a technical analyst at Cointelegraph, believes XRP price could post a 50% rally. If XRP breaks past its multi-year descending trendline resistance, the altcoin could target the $0.57 level. 

Gola believes XRP price is likely to run up toward the next Fib line near $0.72 level.
