Ripple XRP Price Today

XRP’s price also increased with the rest of the market although at a slower pace compared to the ETH. Having corrected by 1.5% in the last 24 hours, Ripple’s price is now at $0.3 and its market cap is slightly over $2.5 billion which puts it under ETH for the time being. There’s a good chance that XRP will overtake ETH in the coming days as the project keeps pushing for partnerships.

As at today, Dash (DASH) and Binance Coin (BNB) are the best-performing of the top 20 coins posting 24-hour gains of 8 percent and 4 percent respectively.
