The price of Stellar (XLM) has seen a significant surge in the last 24 hours, making it the second top gainer of the day after XRP. This rally could be attributed to Ripple Labs’ recent legal victory, which confirmed that XRP is not considered a security in the United States.
Jed McCaleb co-founded Stellar and Ripple, so their prices may sometimes exhibit similar trends. Over the past day, XLM has risen over 46%, with gains of around 50% on the weekly chart.
The technical outlook for the coin shows a strong bullish influence, with demand and accumulation seeing a significant increase.
However, it’s important to note that with any rally, there’s always the possibility of a price pullback. XLM must maintain a price above a certain mark to avoid the bears taking over. The increase in market capitalization of XLM is also a bullish sign, as it indicates a rise in buying volume.
