Ripple’s Explosive Surge Accelerates; Market Cap Crosses Half Of Bitcoin’s

Ripple’s Explosive Surge Accelerates; Market Cap Crosses Half Of Bitcoin’s:

Yesterday morning we highlighted that even as the broader cryptocurrency universe had gotten slammed following the latest threats out of South Korea, the price of the digital currency XRP, also called Ripple, exploded over the past week, and overtook Ethereum in market cap, making it the second biggest cryptocurrency in circulation after Bitcoin.

Then overnight the surge continued, with Ripple – which one week ago was trading around $1 – exploding even higher, rising as high as $2.80, or a $110 billion market cap and just over half that of Bitcoin’s $212 billion, before easing slightly to $2.42 as of this moment, implying a market cap of roughly $95 billion, up 33% from $1.84 yesterday.
