Prominent chartist EGRAG projects the XRP market cap to hit $997 billion, reflecting a price rally to $18 based on historical data.
His forecast comes when the token is observing a massive uptrend, which recently saw it reclaim $0.7325. The analyst turned to XRP’s market cap, highlighting the previous price surge that pushed its valuation to $128 billion six years back.
As highlighted in EGRAG’s monthly XRP market cap chart, the valuation of XRP stood at a $110.5 million as of January 2017. XRP saw this low market cap when its price collapsed to $0.0030 that month. However, it recorded a comeback shortly after the drop.
Notably, XRP rallied over the course of one year, surging to an all-time high of $3.3170 in January 2018. This surge resulted in a massive increase in XRP’s market cap, skyrocketing to $128.4 billion. EGRAG’s chart suggests that the market cap rallied by a whopping 140,140%.
Nonetheless, XRP eventually collapsed from the $3.3170 all-time high that month, leading to a loss of $33.58 billion in its market cap. Its valuation has continued to observe fluctuations since then, dropping to a low of $4.9 billion in March 2020 and then surging to $89.3 billion in April 2021.
XRP $997B Market Capitalization
The token now holds a market cap of $37.2 billion, securing its position as the fifth most valuable cryptocurrency. EGRAG’s latest forecast suggests the potential for significant growth in market cap, hinting at an impending price surge.

Notably, XRP’s market cap hit a low of $13.87 billion in June. EGRAG’s analysis considers this point as the starting point for the next surge, projecting an astonishing 7,070% increase in XRP’s market cap.
