XRP saw a 22% price increase over the past 3 days which allowed it to get back above the $0.30 level to where it currently trades at $0.307. The cryptocurrency has seen a further 14.5% price hike over the past 24 hours, making it the strongest performing coin out of the top 5 projects.
The latest surge might have been propelled further by the announcement of Line’s new cryptocurrency exchange. Operated by LVC Corporation, a subsidiary of LINE, the Japanese-based cryptocurrency exchange, BITMAX, has gone live today with XRP accepted as one of the tradable coins. It’s not just Ripple that’s in the green today, as all of the large- and mid-cap cryptocurrencies are marking substantial gains.
XRP remains the third-largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $13.45 billion.
