You can see the slowly ramp up from virtually nothing, and on the way up various "peaks" (buy spike until a certain level then an equal sell spike). This is the price being, quite literally, artificially pumped. As we reach our final cashout level the market is running on air, and as seen at the top there are multiple empty spikes- a clear indicator the bulls are out of steam and the pump is being distributed. This is the final blow.
One the way down falls along with price- the dump is over and all big money is out. You can see small spikes as late money tries to make a play (weirdly at most cashout levels) but obviously getting pummeled. Pump and dump over, rest in piece Ripple.
Until the next pump that is....
SIDE NOTE: Many may jump and say XRP's market cap was too big for a pump and dump. This is false. The market cap was gigantic simply due to the fact XRP is heavily centralized and tons of currency was "produced"... the market cap grew as the pump grew. The market cap correlation (as used with stock pump and dump analysis) cannot be applied to a Crypto like Ripple.
Not to say there's not merit to this Crypto, but jeez people look at the chart.
This is a constant reminder- never join while something is exploding. It usually doesn't work out in the end.
