XRP is heading up the latest crypto surge, having seen its price rise by just over 15% over the last twenty four hours as the entire market capitalisation of crypto markets gained $10 billion USD overnight.
The best performer of the top ten leading cryptos by market cap, XRP’s bounce has also been aided by the latest announcement from Binance in which the world’s leading crypto-exchange outlined details of its new TRX/XRP and XZC/XRP trading pairs.
XRP’s latest surge means that it has now wiped out all of December’s losses, with a current price ($0.43) that is now trading at a 30-day high.
Early Christmas For Alts
With Bitcoin registering only modest gains over the last twenty-four hours (3.08%) and BTC dominance falling to 50.9% – its lowest in four months – the current market surge has all the trappings of a mini-Alts season.
Ethereum has also registered double-digit gains of its own overnight with a current price now sitting at around $146. Other big winners from the latest market charge are Tezos (+10%) and QTUM (+12%), adding to some further optimism that the crypto markets may finally be emerging from their most difficult year on record.
