Ripple may have seen a very steep 10% price drop over the past week, but it has recently managed to rebound from a very strong support and is now battling to break above the $0.40 resistance level.
Ripple, ranked in 3rd place amongst the top cryptocurrency projects by market cap value, has only seen a small 28% price increase over the past 3 months of trading. In comparison, the rest of the top 5 cryptocurrency projects have seen have all increased by more than 100% in the same period. This leads us to believe that once XRP breaks above the $0.46 resistance level, it has a long way ahead to catch up to this year’s growth of its competition.
