Ripple has been on a run lately and has been on a tear ever since the news about xRapid coming out came to light. And now, it can successfully crown itself as the biggest altcoin of them all, surpassing Ethereum (ETH) as the #2 coin according to coinmarketcap.com.
With a XRP coin market cap of $23.52 Billion compared to Ethereum's $23.32 billion, Ripple is set to launch its highly anticipated xRapid crypto product sometime next month, likely at their SWELL event being headlined by Bill Clinton and Counting Crows.
XRP has saw a 24 hour trading volume of $2.66 billion with a 60% gain while Ether has been at $2.32 billion the last day and posted a 7.5% gain.
While this might not be the real flippening, aka BTC and the USD, or even ETH and BTC, this is quite a feat for the anti-bitcoiners in Ripple company and XRP coin. Ripple has posted over 100% gains in the past week with all of its recent news and looks to continue further its climb and ascent as one of the dominate crypto coins and tokens out there with real-world value and use cases.
What do you guys think – will Ripple be able to maintain its #2 rank over Ethereum or will ETH pull it together and have a run of its own in the near future? One thing you can count on, BEG will be there to cover it for you!
