The cryptocurrency market has been exhibiting a bullish trend even as Ripple’s XRP steered its way to major declines last week. The digital coin was hovering below $0.40, with very low price action in 2019. XRP was ranked as the third largest crypto-asset with a market cap of $16.03 billion and a price of $0.38, at press time.
However, XRP’s trading volume of $1.28 billion over the past 24-hours painted a different picture. The coin was trading relatively low in terms of its volume.
Ripple’s partnerships and developments did not seem to have had a significant effect on its native cryptocurrency’s trading volume.
The silver crypto, Litecoin [LTC], which is the fifth largest by market cap, recorded a 24-hour trading volume of $4.27 billion, which is nearly four times that of XRP. EOS, the sixth positioned digital asset, stood at a trading volume of $2.04 billion over the past 24-hours.
If the 24-hour trading volume was taken into account, XRP slipped to the seventh position, followed closely by Tron. TRX was closing in with a 24-hour trading volume $858 million.
According to the CoinMarketCap figures, XRP’s trading volume gained momentum on May 14, 2019, registering a massive $5.83 billion in 24-hour trading volume, priced at $0.32, as compared to $1.97 billion the previous day. However, the digital coin endured huge losses over the month as the volume sank soon after. XRP, however, has maintained its price above $0.35.
