Price Trend of XRP since the Start of 2020
XRP, the 3rd largest digital currency by market capitalization started 2020 with $0.19. Its price subsequently increased to relatively $0.34 sometimes in mid-February, but later plunged to trade at about $0.14, a price downtrend that was attributed to the negative effect of coronavirus.
At the time of writing, XRP is trading at $0.193542, with a relatively 2 percent price upsurge in the last 24 hours.
