The XRP price has been off 1% in the past 24 hours, but the stake-to-earn XRP20 coin could be about to explode after a 5% burn event was announced to take place today. There could be a big weekend of gains ahead for XRP20.

Stake-to-earn XRP20 began trading on the Uniswap decentralized exchange (DEX) on Tuesday, August 22. 

Its price since then has proven remarkably resilient against the background of general crypto market weakness triggered by a decline in the bitcoin price.

Yesterday, the XRP20 team announced on the project’s Twitter and Telegram accounts that 5% of the total token supply will be burned today

XRP20 is already a deflationary coin because 0.1% of all transactions are burnt, providing ongoing price support, as fewer coins in supply create greater scarcity, thereby underpinning the asset’s value. 

Burn Alert: 5% of XRP20 Supply Set to Ignite at 4 pm UTC

The impact of the 0.1% transaction burn and the 5% burn event today will reduce the total supply, which the community can see going down on the token bright contract address page.

A burn address is a unique ’ null’ address that does not have a ‘send’ function, effectively removing the tokens from the overall supply. 

In addition to the transaction-triggered burn, 5% of all tokens will be burnt at 4 p.m. UTC today. 

Like XRP, XRP20 has a 100 billion supply, although that’s where the resemblance to Ripple’s XRP ends. XRP20 is not affiliated with Ripple Labs or any of its products. 

Hopes that the SEC might have made a strategic mistake in appealing a judge’s decision that XRP is not a security when sold to retail investors has so far done little to bolster the price of XRP. Neither have persistent rumors that Robinhood intends to relist the XRP token.

Nevertheless, both developments could help to stall the retracement that has seen XRP lose all the gains made since the judge’s ruling.

But that hasn’t happened yet. However, the attention of the XRP Army, as the XRP community is known, is increasingly turning to XRP20 as an alternative way to realize some of the locked-up value associated with the token’s history and utility.

There are 3,440 holders of the XRP20 token, which is growing steadily, helped by the attraction of earning a tasty yield from staking the token.

XRP Enthusiasts Eyeing a 40% Yield Opportunity with XRP20 Coin

Currently, 25 billion tokens are being staked, earning an annual percentage yield of 40%. Staking rewards are distributed over four years at 3,750 per ETH block produced.

Forty percent of the supply is reserved for distribution as staking rewards. The longer stakers deposit their tokens in the staking smart contract, the greater the rewards. There is a seven-day minimum lock on all newly initiated stakes of coin tranches. 

For those who staked during the presale, the clock started running down seven days after the coin began trading on Uniswap, the leading Ethereum-based decentralized exchange.

You can view the dynamic yield on the XRP20 staking dashboard.

XRP20 Steadies, with Bulls Eagerly Awaiting a Price Surge

XRP20 coin’s price continues to trade in a channel established hours after trading began. The price has hovered around the list price of $0.000092, as the coin maintains a market cap of $9 million.  

Traders can also depend on ample liquidity of $453,000 to be confident that trading in the pair is efficient in the Uniswap V2 pool for XRP20/WETH. XRP20’s sizeable liquidity is 71% locked for one month, further buttressing confidence in the market.

Bulls are targeting a return to the all-time high of $0.0001336. It promises to be a bullish end to the week for XRP20 as buyers enter the fray to catch the expected uplift in price from the burn event.

There may also be further burn events in the works to propel the price higher, although there has been no official announcement from the team yet. 

Still, today’s burn shows a clear commitment by the team to support the price of the coin and actively seek ways to enhance its value.

If you are looking for a winning trade on the ‘version 2’ theme that has seen a stream of coins launched inspired by an already-existing crypto asset, then XRP20’s mission to revitalize the XRP ecosystem could be the best place to look, but DYOR. 

Fully decentralized, deflationary, yield-bearing, and Ethereum compatible – XRP20 has the critical features for longevity that all crypto asset holders crave.

Market participants can trade XRP20 coins on DEXTools or swap directly on the Uniswap DEX.
