Seven days ago, Ripple’s total volume was $622,028,000 and now it has increased to $819,671,000. Despite the fact that, Bitcoin still holds a market dominance of 40.2%, the growth rate of Ripple is definitely a boost to its investors and potential investors.
A twitterati tweeted once the numbers came in,
“How to be rich:
step 1: Buy XRP
step 2: HODL
step 3: Be rich”
The major issue that arises is the lack of constant growth that Ripple faces, in the past one hour, the volume is seen to be declining at 0.61%.
Other altcoins are challenging the volume percentage increase of Ripple by outrunning Ripple’s volume percentage increase by up to 15-20%. Currencies like IOTA, Cardano, NEM, StellarLumens are experiencing a volume percentage increase between 45-65% over the period of last 7 days. Ripple securely holds its third position despite the massive volume percentage increase in Altcoins.
