XRP Circulating Supply Dropped!

XRP price spike to some extent during the trading hours that pushed the price above $1.6. However, the price experienced a slight pull back since then, yet maintained successfully above the levels.

Amidst the rally, the circulating supply dropped all of sudden by 10 billion from 45 billion to 35 billion. Moreover, the market capitalization also encountered a drop from $72 billion to $55 billion within minutes. 


However, some speculated it to be a technical glitch, yet if it was to be true, then the circulating supply and market cap would have been updated. Moreover, a similar chart was viewed on coinmarket cap and on the popular exchanges like Coinbase, Binance, etc. Hence the chances of a coin burn accelerate, that might have led to a price surge.
