Ripple Recent Performance
Miguel Vias, Head of XRP Markets at Ripple pointed out that compared to the substantial uptick in XRP market interest and activity in the second quarter, Q3 ushered in relative stability. The big events in the crypto asset space over the course of the quarter did not involve XRP directly.
After a whopping 1,159% quarter on quarter increase in Q2, XRP retraced 25% in Q3 to finish the third quarter at $0.20, where it trades today, but still up 2,963% from last year. Vias went on to say in his market report, that “impressively, daily volatility in XRP decreased to 6.80 percent from 22.56 percent in Q2. Much of this consolidation was due to the continued development of XRP liquidity. In fact, Q3 XRP volumes were the highest on record at $16.50 billion.”
