Dogecoin (DOGE) transactions go parabolic
Dogecoin has recently seen its transaction volume spiking to outstanding heights. According to on-chain data, on May 25, DOGE's transaction count hit 1.152 million, went slightly up to 1.162 million the following day and finally broke the two million mark on May 27. This made Dogecoin's transaction volume reach a new all-time high, making it the first time the meme coin outperformed Bitcoin's peak transaction volume in 14 years. The reason behind such growth lies in the rampant minting of DRC20 tokens on the Dogecoin chain. Thanks to Dogecoin's low transaction fees, there was a frenzy of activity that resulted in a flood of transactions.
XRP holders' lawyer predicts FOMO will start at $2: details
John Deaton, prominent XRP holders' lawyer, has taken to Twitter to comment on the price of the Ripple-affiliated token. Deaton wrote that while XRP's price is sitting at $0.48, it is crazy to think about how many people who hesitate to purchase the asset now are going to buy it over $1. What is more crazy, Deaton continues, is that many will FOMO in when the price of XRP is at or above $2. Since XRP was trading at an all-time high (ATH) above $3.84 more than five years ago, according to data from CoinMarketCap, the coin has every reason to retest the resistance around $2.
