Over the weekend, something miraculous happened to Ripple (XRP). Inspired by the happenings of GME, 295,000 Telegram users pumped the coin up 45 percent to a height of $0.75 USD.

While the community for XRP was intending to hold in order to bring the value of XRP back up, other XRP investors had different intentions in mind and sold to take profit, reducing the valiant effort. This also comes at a time when the actual Ripple company is being sued by the SEC for allegedly selling unregistered securities — an ordeal that has negatively impacted the trading of XRP.

The organizer of the pump, XRP Bully, continued his support for Ripple with several tweets reading: “With so many unbanked people in the world, we need a community of XRP developers to create apps on the XRP ledger. That’s how the value will come. XRP offers a superb use case, and this a golden opportunity.” And that the events that unfolded would be a “catalyst to further developments.” Due to the large dump of the cryptocurrency that followed suit, XRP was quickly suspended from trading on many exchanges.

In other cryptocurrency news, India wants to ban Bitcoin and other private cryptocurrencies.
