XRP is hot, but there’s a catch
Recently, data provider Santiment warned the XRP community about a possible side effect of the current uptrend that XRP has entered after surging 15% above $0.84 for the first time since Feb 16. .
Currently, the sixth largest cryptocurrency, Ripple-affiliated XRP, is trending both on social media and in the crypto market.
However, Santiment’s analytics team has warned the XRP army that historically there have been times when traders start pulling their profits off the table once XRP starts trending and becomes a hot topic.
Despite the recent growth, in the last three days the coin in question has shown a decline of around 12%, and it is changing hands at $0.7548 at the moment.
📈 $XRP tends to kick off the weekend after a +15% rally that saw prices peak above $0.84 for the first time since Feb. 16. Historically, our social tendencies indicate that profit-taking is justified whenever the crowd does the #XRPNetwork a priority topic. https://t.co/58Ct2rZVzk pic.twitter.com/nl9Ka6jwkf
