XRP is the third currency with the biggest market cap and is as popular with retail investors as Bitcoin. Aiming at working with banks and at embedding itself in the current financial system, Ripple has been vastly expanding its network of partnerships recently.
The XRP community, one of the biggest and most loyal ones, has been closely watching the XRP quotes lately. Many are expecting the coin’s price to bolster soon due to the upcoming Swell event that takes place in Singapore in the first week of November.
