Why I think, this is the perfect time for Bitcoin to reach ATH.
So usually the correlation between ripple and btc is negative.
One goes up and the other goes down. And given that Bitcoin just hit it's ATH, it will calm down by Weekend and people will go back to their alts such as ripple, eth and stellar.
Big month for everyone!
Hope we hit a new ATH too.
Cheers and HODL!
