In an intriguing turn of events, a renowned market analyst has unearthed a startling trading vulnerability on one of the industry's leading exchanges. A recent U.Today report revealed that the price of XRP experienced a brief yet staggering surge, reaching an astonishing $50 on the widely recognized trading platform Gemini.

This unexpected price leap unfolded shortly after Gemini introduced XRP to its trading roster. The crypto community was left abuzz with speculation as social media channels lit up with discussions surrounding the extraordinary occurrence. Initial assessments pointed toward a potential glitch in the exchange's system, raising questions about the integrity of the trading process.

Flaw in order flow

A prominent figure in market analysis, Ali Martinez, delved into the situation and unearthed a series of startling revelations. Martinez's expert assessment shows a more intricate narrative surrounding the incident.

Notably, the analyst found a profound irregularity within the trading dynamics of XRP on Gemini. His meticulous examination of the incident yielded a crucial insight: a mere $37,000 order possessed the ability to propel XRP's price by a substantial 2%.

Further elaborating on the matter, Martinez exposed a subtle yet significant alteration in the exchange's presentation of price data. Despite the initial XRP surge being recorded at a remarkable $50, Gemini swiftly updated its charts to reflect a significantly lower figure of $1.60, thereby masking the extent of the price anomaly.
