Below is a little 'table' of factors often discussed here, and the possible correlation of each to changes in the price of XRP. Remember that correlation does not imply causation, meaning that while the price of XRP may move in tandem with a factor (or against it), the price movement may or may not be caused by that factor. Correlations measure the strength of a linear relationship between two variables. Qualitatively speaking, correlations between two variables can be negative if one moves up while the other one moves down (ex. sales volume and unit price), or positive if they move in sync in either +ve/-ve direction (ex. home square footage and price), or zero if they are uncorrelated and neither really cares what the other one does. Quantitatively, correlation coefficients vary between a minimum of -1 and a maximum of +1, with values such as 0.2 being described as a 'weak positive correlation' and -0.85 as a 'strong negative correlation.' The table below is only qualitative. It is also subjective and by no means inclusive of all possible factors. factor correlation to XRP price change note good news (Ripple) none, or, if positive, not sustainable yet includes new offices/staff/corridors/partners/exchange listings/pairings/products bad news (Ripple) unknown insufficient data, note R3 lawsuit unresolved Bitcoin price up rarely positive, frequently zero or negative not in sync to the upside Bitcoin price down highly positive in sync to downside, Bitcoin price drop drags down all other coins (including XRP) alt coins price up none no single strong influencer other than Bitcoin (to the downside) alt coins price down positive as side effect of Bitcoin price drop XRP demand/use unknown insufficient data, delays in adoption -> legitimate concerns up -ve sentiment re XRP (non-XRP holders) unknown xrpchat traffic up, conspiracy theories up (many featuring large marine mammals) +ve/-ve sentiment re XRP (XRP holders) none -ve sentiment -> diversification talk up; +ve sentiment -> moontalk up decentralization of validators unknown insufficient data, decentralization incomplete use cases other than cross-border payments unknown insufficient data (ex.
