Diving Deep Into XRP On-Chain Metrics

The selloff by the same XRP whale, also recorded by CoinGape media previously, appears to have pushed the prices down within the broader crypto market. This potentially comes as a result of the token’s sudden jump in supply, somewhat falling in line with the token’s options trading data.

According to the insights offered by Coinglass, the open interest saw a 1.95% jump today, reaching $562.34 million. This further increased the liquidity for XRP and, when aligned with XRP’s price fall today, signals a downtrend.

Simultaneously, the options volume saw a 46.56% decline, reflecting the bearish market sentiment for XRP as options trading activity plunged.

Meanwhile, aligning with the whale’s selloff and options data, the XRP price noted a drop nearing $0.50.
