Market analysts including Zach Rector have observed that these impressive figures could contribute to a market shift. Analyzing the current surge of locked XRP, Rector observed that the growing use of the asset for diverse utilities, development of bridges, and the strong holders could drastically reduce its liquid supply over the next few years, leading to a supply shock that could be witnessed in the next 5 to 10 years. For context, supply shock is the unexpected or sudden significant change in the available supply of the asset, causing scarcity and driving the token up the price curve.

Fascinatingly, some analysts believe that the asset could hit $5 after the Bitcoin halving. Their reason stems from the 942% surge recorded in 2021 following the 2020 Bitcoin halving. On April 14, 2021, XRP reached $1.9650 at the helm of its bull run. With this, a popular crypto analyst EGRAG CRYPTO believes that the current market correction is “for buying, not for crying.”

Per his observation, the asset has been caught between bullish sentiment and bearing pressure. In a previous analysis, EGRAG CRYPTO disclosed that the price had formed a “three camel humps”, indicating a potential surge.
