Charting the course of XRP

That, I think, would be a sign of true desperation.  I think they are making a very concerted effort to disprove the notion that they control the price; this would kind of obliterate that notion for what would probably amount to only short term gains. 

I hope that they are not concerned with the price at all and focusing on their company and building out the usage of ODL.  If they are sitting around worrying about the price of XRP, then we truly are f$cked :D

Agreed. I think they will focus on attracting developers to build on XRPL, which will inherently burn XRP. Last week I did some quick tracking of total supply via https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/ - below is the amount of XRP that was burned during the period 11/25/2019 - 12/02/2019.

During that weekly period a total of 48,649 XRP were burned. Multiplying this by 52 weeks to project how much XRP will be burned a year gets us to ~2.53M however, we keep in mind that the amount burned is variable and can increase or decrease.

I was participating undercover :).  The trolls became too overwhelming while XRP was in the dumps, I figure its safe to come out again.

These threads are being derailed by childish banter, could you please keep things on topic and move your chit chat elsewhere. The forum is becoming less interesting for many of us.

I really don’t understand why the forum has been getting so heated lately when we are doing SO WELL after YEARS of being in the gutter. You’d think everybody would be saying hello, good morning, how a

Wtf?!?    Actually coinlib.io do seem to have some odd days where figures are wild.  But just so we can see it and hope we are looking at a near term future reading:

XRP 24hr vol: 5.27 Billion 2nd place.

Remember in 2017 when XRP would jump like 30 cents in one day?

Oh how the mighty have fallen lol.

Still, any green is better than red.  Will update charts later.

If I'm not mistaken, I think the circulating supply actually may have dropped from 43.29B to 43.28B. Can somebody please check me on that? Thx

My guess, if this is true, would be from the burn due to increased XRP usage...

You're right that circulating supply went from 43,299,885,509 to 43,285,660,917 however, I'm unsure what caused this decline. Usually, a decline in total supply hasn't been reflected in circulating supply. So not sure if coinmarketcap has started adjusting circulating supply based on the decline in total supply or if something else caused this.

EDIT: Imagine if Ripple started doing XRP buybacks (same as stock buy backs). Not sure if this is possible currently given the uncertainty in regulation but that would definitely send a signal to the market (and their partners) that they think the price of XRP is higher than current market price.

I think the XRPL was being stress tested during that time causing some burning, Sologenic maybe?

BTC and XRP both almost simultaneously broke above their respective bearish trend lines that they have stayed under since early November.  Watching to see if the daily can close above. 

EDIT: Nice volume behind the green candles too.  Good start.

Could very well be. Candidly, I'm unsure what caused the burn rate to spike. Not sure if they're testing stablecoin creation that's pegged to XRP but if I recall correctly that would also burn XRP. Or maybe it's just an uptick in transactions that's causing the spike.
