David Schwartz, the chief technology officer at Ripple, has recently hinted at a significant trend that many members of the XRP community are likely not paying attention to.
According to a chart from CoinMarkerCap shared by Schwartz, there has been a correlation between XRP and WallStreetBets (WSB) charts.
It can be recalled that the WallStreetBets gained vast popularity across the financial world following the pump of the price of GameStop stock it initiated. Dogecoin (DOGE), a popular cryptocurrency created out of a joke, also leverages the moment by surging over 1000% within a couple of hours.

XRP Price Regains Surging Momentum
There has been speculation on what is behind the positive price trend XRP has been experiencing in the past two days.
Many crypto pundits have been attributing the significant price trend to the response to SEC’s lawsuit filed by Ripple about two days ago, while others said it’s due to the bridge between Dogecoin (DOGE) and XRP proposed by Flare.
There are some that said that XRP was benefitting from the rise of Bitcoin price after Elon Musk changed his Twitter bio to Bitcoin. However, Bitcoin price has since corrected from Elon Musk’s pump, but the digital token XRP has not relented from its unexpected price appreciation.
At the time of publishing, XRP is trading at $0.4860, with a 59% price uptrend in the last 24 hours. Moreover, the cryptocurrency has also reclaimed the 5th position from Polkadot (DOT).
XRP community members are optimistic of a favorable outcome from the court. Many XRP investors are still holding their assets, believing that a positive result is likely to result in a significant upsurge of XRP price.
