Popular on-chain data vendor Santiment has tweeted that three top altcoins, Ethereum, XRP and Binance coin, are on the rise in terms of social sentiment at the moment.
Interest in XRP, ETH, BNB, DOGE, ADA jumps, here's reason
Santiment stated that the major driver of rising interest in the aforementioned cryptocurrencies is the decline of social interest in the flagship crypto, Bitcoin – for the first time after it soared in March.
So far, according to the chart, it is Ethereum that is taking the biggest chunk of the social interest. Aside from ETH, XRP and BNB, DOGE and ADA are also attracting the community's interest and are being actively discussed at the moment.
🗣️ With #Bitcoin's social volume finally declining ever so slightly after its March ascension, #Ethereum, #XRPNetwork, and #BinanceCoin are now getting increased discussion. #Altcoins continue recovering by varying degrees based on crowd confidence. https://t.co/JFGG5s76at pic.twitter.com/Vxwur2Qsds— Santiment (@santimentfeed) June 14, 2023
Top Australian exchange adds first XRP pair
The biggest Australia-based crypto trading platform (and also the very first one founded there), BTC Markets, announced that it is expanding the range of crypto assets it offers to XRP.
On Thursday, June 15, trading for the XRP/USDT pair will kick off. This is a rare case when a crypto exchange lists XRP, as the SEC suit against Ripple initiated in late 2020 continues.
However, the Hinman Documents that were published recently by the SEC at the judge's demand, contain a phrase that XRP should not be classified as an investment contract.
At the time of this writing, the sixth biggest digital currency is changing hands at $0.5089, according to CoinMarketCap data.
