Will XRP Finally Break Above $0.30?

XRP saw a price increase of around 1% over the past 24 hours and it currently trades at $0.2926. The cryptocurrency has been on a tear these past two weeks after surging by a total of 17.72%, making it the strongest performing cryptocurrency out of the top 5 in the selected period. 

The surge has now allowed XRP to retest the $0.30 level which had provided strong support for the market all year until it was broken in July 2019. This price increase is largely a result of XRP surging against BTC as it broke above 3400 SATS. 

XRP remains the third-largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $12.62 billion.
