Market Performance and Community’s Faith in XRP
XRP is currently ranked third with a market capitalization of $12.998 Billion. Ethereum is slightly ahead with a market cap of $14.566 Billion. In terms of USD value, XRP is still oscillating around the 30 cents range. It is currently valued at $0.31 as we close the first week of March.
However, XRP’s stagnation in value despite being listed on Coinbase, has not deterred avid investors and fans of the remittance coin. Further checking Twitter, we find that the XRP community continues being active and optimistic that the utility of the coin will eventually mirror its value in the crypto markets.
One twitter user by the name of @WeitseWind noted that 60 people had already registered for an XRP Community meetup that is scheduled for April 20th. This is impressive considering the event is approximately 7 weeks away. His full tweet can be found below.
