Investors are taking the world’s most popular crypto payment facilitator, Ripple, by storm.
XRP price rose from 18 cents to 30 cents in just 6 weeks. Data from Santiment Research Company, a crypto analytic firm, showed that in spite of XRP’s -9.2% retracement this past week, the active address output recorded for the 3rd market cap crypto asset has remained high.
XRP’s price, at the time this report was drafted, was $0.286194. It has a daily trading volume of $1,817 billion. XRP price has gone up 0.4% in the last 24 hours. It has a circulating supply of 45 billion coins and a max supply of 100 billion coins according to data retrieved from Coingecko.
Like the other cryptocurrencies, XRP has a long way to go to make it back up to its early 2018 highs. What’s interesting in the metric stated above is the increase in buying volume that shows high buying pressures.
The fast-moving crypto has been fighting to stay above $0.3 in the last few days. It does show that the sellers have built a resistance around that price level.
Indeed, Ripple looks set for a bullish run after the recent decline. However, buyers will have to break the price level above $0.3 in the short term to keep the pricing roaring up.
Importance of using XRP: XRP was produced by leading crypto payment provider, Ripple, with the aim of providing a fast, less costly, and more scalable alternative to both other crypto-assets and existing monetary payment infrastructure like SWIFT.
Unlike its major crypto rival, Bitcoin, which was never intended to be a simple payment system, Ripple has gained the attention of major global banks such as Standard Chartered and Barclays, who now use it for international transactions worldwide.
