Additionally, the digital asset experienced a massive spike in the number of active addresses, which also happened on February 1 when XRP hit a peak of $0.72 before collapsing within the next 24 hours.

The next support level is the 26 EMA on the four-hour chart located at $0.824, followed by the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement point at $0.758.  

Nonetheless, a rebound from the 78.6% Fibonacci level at $0.917 should drive the Ripple price toward the psychological level of $1 and as high as the previous peak of $1.19.
