Despite a lot of FUD surrounding Ripple, it continues to grow. The Brad Garlinghouse-led firm has developed itself to be one of the most ambitious blockchain companies which had continued to rope-in institutional support. In the latest news, Ripple was integrated with South Korean ‘Sentbe’ in its payment network.
XRP, on the other hand, had crashed alongside its peer coins and was in a recovery phase. Ripple’s in-house cryptocurrency had failed to propel major gains following a brief breakout and dropped below the $0.38 key level. The third-largest cryptocurrency was trading at a price of $0.33, at press time and constituted 5.7% of the entire market cap of $290.6 billion.
