Ripple's XRP Dethrones Bitcoin and Ethereum Kings
XRP is considered the fourth-largest cryptocurrency in terms of market capitalization. It has seen a significant surge in the past 24 hours, surpassing the performances of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH). This increase is believed to be associated with the growing adoption of Ripple’s crypto platform by financial institutions in various countries.
XRP’s price surges by more than 10%
Ripple’s XRP crypto has even surpassed BNB in terms of market capitalization, reaching $32 billion.
Analysts believe that the XRP surge is a result of market demand in the spot market. The liquidations on futures contracts have not been significant. They also suggest that Ripple’s XRP might be benefiting from a catch-up effect compared to other major cryptocurrencies that have experienced more significant gains in recent months.
Ripple Secures Key Approvals in Georgia and Dubai
Last week, Ripple announced obtaining significant authorizations to operate and offer its services in Georgia and Dubai.
In Georgia, the National Bank of Georgia approved RippleNet’s messaging system to facilitate cross-border transfers. In Dubai, the Dubai Financial Services Authority has granted an innovation license to Ripple, allowing the crypto company to test its payment solutions in the region.
These developments certainly reinforce investor confidence in the growth potential of Ripple and its XRP crypto token.
Despite this performance, Ripple’s XRP faces legal challenges in the United States. The outcome of the ongoing lawsuit with the SEC could significantly shape the future of this crypto. Stay tuned for updates.
