Daily active addresses of Ripple
Daily active addresses (DAA) is a famous metric on the network that helps to estimate users’ network activity. Refers to the number of addresses that participated in a transaction on a given day. Each address is counted, making this metric more accurate than counting a transaction.
DAA allows access to how active a particular blockchain is. The increasing number is considered a bullish signal as it implies that the currency is being actively used.
XRP stuck in a symmetrical triangle
From a technical point of view, the XRP moves within a symmetrical triangle formation, characterized by inclined and upward trend lines connecting a series of sequential peaks and bottoms. This continuation pattern results from a period of consolidation after a sharp price movement that denotes a feeling of uncertainty in the market. The direction of the break will define the additional momentum.

The bullish development will be confirmed by a candlestick closing above the $ 0.62 downward trend line resistance. In that case, the bullish momentum may gain strength, with the target estimated at $ 0.89. This target represents a 41% price increase. It is determined by measuring the distance between the widest point of the triangle and the potential breaking point.
On the other hand, following a similar rationale, a sustainable move below the $ 0.58 triangle support will result in a substantial decline to $ 0.336. This development will invalidate the immediate bullish forecast and bring more bears to the market.
