Although the announcement received a prompt correction, XRP’s trading volume still experienced a noticeable shift.

Speculations and Liquidations Surrounding XRP News

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), a statement was made that indicated global asset manager BlackRock had applied for an XRP ETF:

“BLACKROCK FILES TO REGISTER A NEW ISHARES XRP TRUST ENTITY IN DELAWARE.”

However, shortly after a correction post was made:

“DELAWARE FILING FOR ISHARES XRP TRUST ENTITY IS FAKE.”

Furthermore, Bloomberg analyst Eric Balchumas also stated that the news was fake, claiming that he verified the information with Blackrock.

Balchumas alleged that “some whacko must have added using BlackRock executive name.”

This comes only days after BlackRock filed an application for the iShares Ethereum Trust in Delaware. Since the announcement, Ethereum has also seen a surge in its price, now currently sitting at $2,064.

However, BlackRock’s spot Bitcoin ETF application is currently under scrutiny by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The entire crypto community is eagerly anticipating approval, with high hopes that a positive outcome will lead to a significant market surge.
