The blockchain analysis firm Santiment (@santimentfeed) tweeted yesterday that social dominance for Ripple (XRP) is at its highest point in a year. The tweet added that this spike in Ripple’s social dominance came after the remittance token’s price comfortably broke above $0.49 for the first time since 6 November 2022.
Santiment’s tweet did warn, however, that this additional crowd recognition for XRP may result in more volatile price swings for the altcoin due to increased trading volume and growing mainstream interest.
At press time, XRP’s price is up 4.76% over the last 24 hours according to CoinMarketCap. This has added to the altcoin’s impressive weekly price performance which currently stands at +25.44%. As a result, XRP is currently changing hands at $0.4854.
XRP has also made its way onto CoinMarketCap’s trending list and occupies the number 2 spot currently. Meanwhile, the altcoin’s 24-hour gain is an outlier in the market given that the total crypto market cap fell by 2.22% in the last 24 hours. This has brought the global crypto market cap down to around $1.13 trillion.
Almost all of the top 10 cryptos in terms of market cap posted losses over the last 24 hours.
