XRP (XRP) suddenly jumped within hours as what seemed like a positive catalyst appeared for its price. According to Santiment, an on-chain analytics firm, the pattern of large social dominance spikes often led to XRP price gains.
In the last 24 hours, XRP has been a top trending item on social media site Twitter as discussions regarding its price and progress made in the Ripple lawsuit, among others, have taken place.
The impact was felt on the price, as XRP printed six green hourly candles at a stretch. The largest green hourly candlestick produced a rise to highs of $0.432 before the price somewhat eased.
XRP was a top gainer among the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap, as it is up nearly 6% in the last 24 hours and 10.13% in the past week. At the time of writing, XRP trades at $0.424.
As reported by U.Today, XRP holders received the good news that in the ongoing Ripple-SEC lawsuit, all motions are now fully briefed and the judge’s decision is awaited.
