XRP Struggles to Keep Up with Market Despite 65% Volume Surge


The price of XRP, the native token of Ripple, remained stagnant today despite a broader market rally, raising questions among investors. This comes after a whale transferred around $16 million worth of XRP to a different wallet, according to data from Whale Alert.

XRP Price Lags Behind

While the purpose of the transfer remains unclear, it has injected a sense of caution into the XRP market. Currently trading around $0.58, XRP stands out as the cryptocurrency with the lowest gains in the top 10 over the last 30 days, with a meager 10% rise.

This contrasts sharply with market leaders Bitcoin and Ethereum, which have surged 16.5% and 14% over the past week and 41% and 46% over the last 30 days, respectively. Notably, most of these gains were realized overnight, highlighting the volatile nature of the cryptocurrency market.

Despite the current stagnation, XRP’s technical analysis paints a mixed picture. On the one hand, the token is trading above its 30-day moving average, indicating some potential for short-term buying pressure. 

Additionally, an RSI (Relative Strength Index) of 63 on the daily chart suggests the presence of possible buying activity, but not enough to trigger a significant price increase.

XRP Price Finds Support

On the other hand, XRP has recently found strong support in the mid-to-low $0.50 region, suggesting a potential floor for the token’s price. This could mitigate any drastic drops triggered by the whale movement or broader market volatility.

Beyond price movements, the cryptocurrency has also been in the news lately due to Ripple’s ongoing lawsuit with the SEC. The lawsuit began in December 2020 and accused Ripple of selling XRP as an unregistered security. While Ripple has secured some partial victories, the legal battle casts a shadow over the token’s future.

On the Flipside

Ripple’s core business and technology are unaffected by price stagnation, and continued adoption could drive future growth. The ongoing legal battle with the SEC is a major unknown, but a positive resolution could significantly boost investor confidence and price.

Why This Matters

While XRP stands out for its lack of gains in a surging market, its technical indicators suggest both potential for buying pressure and a support level that could prevent significant drops. This mixed picture underscores the uncertainty surrounding XRP’s future, particularly in light of the ongoing SEC lawsuit.
