On-Chain Activity at a Glance

XRP’s on-chain activity has seen a significant increase, highlighted by a growth in the number of active addresses and transactions by large holders, known as whales, with moves in excess of $100,000.

This can be interpreted in a number of ways; however, the increase observed following the recent rise in the price of XRP suggests a possible consolidation of gains by these large investors.

Since the beginning of March 2024, there has been evidence of profit-taking by XRP holders, accumulating a total of $370 million. This could be behind the price correction observed recently.

This price adjustment comes against a backdrop where investors are opting to lock in profits ahead of a key date in the ongoing lawsuit between the SEC and Ripple, set for March 22.

High Expectations for 2024

Bill Morgan, an attorney and XRP advocate, projects that the token will reach new all-time highs in 2024. Morgan bases his optimism on XRP’s historical performance, highlighting periods of growth in the second and fourth quarters of the year.

Although the SEC has opted not to appeal the ruling excluding XRP from being considered a security, uncertainty will persist until the final conclusion of the legal dispute. Nevertheless, Morgan envisions a promising year for XRP, supported by Moon Lambo’s outlook, who highlights the relevance of regulatory clarity and the practical utility of XRP over the ongoing legal disputes.
