Possible Reason For Ripple Price Surge

  1. Although all the cryptocurrency are breaking their lifetime high, value of single XRP is cheapest compared to that of Bitcoin and Litecoin. Price tag under a US Dollar makes it attractive among new traders and investor. Being the cheapest yet one of the oldest and reputed coin makes people asking themselves whether to buy Ripple is a good choice today, to jump on the “crypto-cart” before the price rises excessively and comes out of our reach. Although it is still early to compare one XRP price to one Bitcoin price.
  2. According to a report published on, banks in Japan and South Korea might start testing Ripple’s blockchain platform from this Friday. The aim of this project would be to reduce the cost of transactions by 30% and transfers time from one day to few seconds between the two countries. Bithumb, one of the largest korean exchange was driving the 33% of total volume in last 24 hours. Looks like Koreans are buying in XRP coins in bulk.
  3. The Ripple (XRP) crypto currency was the first one to accepted in financial institutions. XRP parent company’s link with banking world has benefited it’s stellar rise. A recent agreement with American Express could also be a trigger to rally. The San Francisco company recently confirmed a partnership with American Express. The goal of Ripple and American Express partnership is to solve today fintech problems by offering instant blockchain solutions.
  4. The important thing is that the innovative technology, which makes ripple very fast, secure, and above all much cheaper than traditional systems (such as Swift ). So it is plausible that if XRP keep it’s promises that it can be adopted by a large number of banks all over the world.
  5. Speed, Ripple is still at the top of it’s special speed classification with 4 seconds of waiting against the 2 minutes of ethereum and the 10-30 minutes of bitcoin transaction time and 1-3 days of modern banking technology (i.e. swift transfers).
