XRP has been unable to sustain a bull rally in the last four months to reach a new ATH. As the coin remains under $1, XRP has returned 298.6% in the last year. As its monthly and weekly returns are both unimpressive at over -15%. Despite XRP’s sluggish price action and a lawsuit with the SEC, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse recently called 2021 its strongest year.

However, Arcane’s recent analysis for XRP is not all bright. It noted in its 2022 prediction that XRP will fall out of the top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap, along with Cardano.

With that being said, let’s also look at Ripple’s co-founder and its first CTO, and also the founder of Stellar, Jed McCaleb’s wallet balance. There have been no sales since August and the balance reportedly remains 709,911,634 XRP on the live charts. Meanwhile, his “tacostand” wallet is officially missing in action.
