XRP Price prediction: $2.50 EOY

My price prediction for XRP is $2.50 by the end of the year. It was much higher for EOY 2019 when I first looked at it last year but the bear market and the pace of movement have brought the number significantly lower. First of all, most of the Ripple Partnerships(and all those with banks) have involved xCurrent and have not used XRP. There has been a lot of cool stuff that has been developed by Wietse Wind that is connect to XRPtipbot. The Tipbot,however, has been out since Dec 2017 and only now has perhaps 1000XRP per month flowing through it per day. I expect this to grow significantly in the the future, but over the course of several years. I do not expect this to effect the price this year. There has been retail adoption of XRP by merchants but people are unwilling to use XRP to actually buy things in general so the liquidity provided by that is little to none.
There are, however, a few partners with Ripple that are deploying x-rapid, the most notable one being Mercury FX, which is transacting tens of thousands of dollars per week now via X-rapid and hopes to transact tens of millions eventually through X-rapid. However, this amount is not enough to move price and would require many times this amount to significantly effect price. Catalyst credit union is a major player and could see much more transacted in volume than Mercury FX later this year but even this volume would only minimally effect XRP price. However, with these small remittance companies signing on, it could show people that XRP is finally on its way and could improve investor sentiment, which is very important for the price. The biggest thing factoring into my price increase is actually the Bitcoin Halvening occuring next May and looking at the effect that the LTC halvening is having on Litecoin price, I believe as we get to the end of the year, it will trigger a Bull Run that will see Bitcoin perhaps back at $12,000 or $13,000 , perhaps even around $15,000. Because of this, I believe XRP will soon shortly follow and get to figures like $2.50 by the end of the year.
