  • The XRP network has recently witnessed historic address activity spikes.
  • The mild decoupling from other altcoins has indicated a divergence in behavior.
  • XRP has stood out with consecutive days of heightened activity.

Exciting developments on the XRP network have captured the attention of investors and enthusiasts alike, as it records two of the highest spikes in address activity in its history over two consecutive days. 

According to blockchain analytics platform Santiment, the XRP network has witnessed two notable address-activity surges, marking historical milestones. These consecutive spikes suggest a slight deviation of 4% from the other altcoins, potentially signaling an upward trend for XRP. 

Address Activity Boosts XRP Price to 4.2% Increase

This pattern mirrors the price appreciation observed after a similar surge in address activity on March 18. Presently valued at $0.502306, XRP has experienced a 4.2% increase within the day, showcasing a robust growth of 7.8% over the week. 


The modest decoupling and the consecutive days of heightened address activity raise the possibility of an imminent breakthrough for XRP as its behavior diverges from the prevailing crypto market trends.

In contrast, the two leading cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ethereum, have witnessed relatively stagnant or negative movements in the past week. These remarkable address activity surges occur during a heightened focus on Ripple and XRP. 

Ripple’s Optimistic Outlook Sparks Increased Network Activity

The company has been entangled in a high-profile legal battle with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding classifying XRP as a security. 


Nonetheless, Ripple’s CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, recently hinted that a resolution could be reached within a few weeks, providing an optimistic outlook that may have sparked the increased network activity. 

A favorable outcome to the SEC lawsuit could serve as a much-needed catalyst for XRP’s prospects, dispelling uncertainties surrounding its regulatory status and potentially driving wider adoption.

On the Flipside

  • The recent spikes in XRP address activity might be driven by short-term speculative trading rather than indicating a sustainable upward trend.
  • While XRP has shown a mild decoupling from the broader altcoin market, it remains heavily influenced by Bitcoin and Ethereum, making it susceptible to their price movements.
  • The ongoing lawsuit with the SEC still influences the overall market sentiment toward XRP, and the case resolution remains uncertain.

Why This Matters

This surge indicates a potential decoupling from other altcoins and suggests a possible upswing for XRP. If this trend continues, it could mark a decisive breakout for XRP, with implications for its value and market position.
