The movement of inactive XRP tokens has been drawing attention given the record of an increase this month, according to a recent analysis released by the Santiment platform, on May 2. According to the analysis, the XRP Ledger has seen an “abundance of dormant tokens moving to open in May.”

Analysts noted a metric suggesting that XRP’s recent action was a notable increase similar to the movement of old coins compared to the peak recorded on April 13. The move happened just before the markets crashed and XRP’s 16% pullback.

However, experts highlighted that this time there is speculation that this old movement of XRP coins is related to the potential buy the dip interest of investors.

“Our Token Age Consumed metric indicates that this was a remarkably similar increase in old coin movement compared to the peak on April 13th, just before markets tanked and $XRP dropped -16% in value. This time, however, there is an argument that this long-standing currency movement is related to potential buy-the-dip interest from key stakeholders, and prices have been rising slightly since the May peak occurred. Also, keep in mind the growing open interest on exchanges, which has just reached a 3-week high,” the analysis highlighted.

At the time of publication, the price of XRP was quoted at US$0.5244 with an increase of 1.0% in the last 24 hours. During this period, the cryptocurrency recorded a trading volume of US$1,089,593,043.
