XRP tumbled to lows of $0.435 on April 26 as the wider crypto market fell following an alert from blockchain analytics firm Arkham that wallets linked to Mt. Gox and the U.S. government had moved large amounts of Bitcoin. However, the alert was due to a "bug fix."

The drop brought XRP to trade once more below the key level at the daily MA 50 at $0.466. The bulls' attempt to reclaim this level on April 27 was thwarted as the bears were not willing to give up ground.

Crypto lawyer reveals why he acquired XRP

CryptoLaw founder John Deaton stated on Twitter what informed his choice to first buy XRP about seven years ago. Deaton noted in response to a user that he bought his first Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and XRP in 2016.
