XRP Keeps Up Positive Price Momentum
Over the past 24 hours, the Ripple’s digital currency XRP has been one of the best performers among the top 10 cryptocurrencies, in terms of price appreciation.
This positive trend is already attracting the attention of a number of top investors, which resulted in an increase in the number of XRP whales as earlier reported.
According to the behavioral analytics firm, Santiment, the number of addresses holding 1 million to 10 million XRP has been experiencing a drastic increase since 18th July 2020. Roughly 30 new whales have joined the network, representing a 3.7% increase within a short interval.
Before this significant increase, XRP had lingered below $0.2 price level, while other altcoins such as Ethereum (ETH), Cardano (ADA), Chainlink (LINK), and others were in the state of a notable price uptrend. But the situation is starting to turn in favor of XRP in the market.
Ripple’s digital currency has managed to surpass multi-month barriers as it surges towards its next resistance that stands at $0.28. At the time of filing this report, XRP is trading at $0.268191, with a 9.39% price upsurge in the last 24 hours.
Some crypto analysts believe that XRP could consolidate its present positive trend, due to the long-standing barriers it managed to break and the increase in the number of big investors.
