XRP, the second largest altcoin in the cryptocurrency market, hasn’t had a great 2019. While most of the market has succeeded in posting significant gains since April, XRP was unaffected. In fact, the altcoin recorded a low that it hadn’t even touched during the worst of the crypto-winter in 2018. Despite its parent company Ripple’s many partnerships, most notably the recent MoneyGram partnership, the goodwill hasn’t translated to XRP’s prices.
And while yes, XRP did belatedly post some gains in May, it quickly lost all its price momentum in mid-June.
At press time, XRP was priced at $0.261, with a market cap of $11.39 billion. XRP had a 24 hour trading volume of $2.13 billion, while recording a fall of 9.19% in 24 hours and 13.7% over 7 days.
