While several cryptocurrencies hit new highs in the recent crypto rally, XRP was probably the only asset that failed to make a profit. After Bitcoin [BTC] quadrupled, the community went on to speculate that XRP could slump. The altcoin, however, retained itself above null and continued dwelling in the $0.20 zone for the longest time. XRP even slipped in terms of market cap as Polkadot [DOT] had taken over the coin multiple times.
XRP however, rose once again and was seen surging by over 13% in the last 24-hours. Reversing its downtrend, the asset rose to a high of $0.44. The altcoin’s market cap was noted at $20 billion and restored its position as the fourth-largest digital coin.
