The XRP coin has surged from the $0.9580 level to the $1.03 price mark on the Binance exchange against USDT, as the flagship cryptocurrency Bitcoin added 10%, soaring to nearly $48,000 from the $44,900 level.

However, this is still 28% lower than XRP's high of $1.41 reached on Sept. 6 and 48% lower than the peak of $1.97 seen by the XRP community on April 14, when Bitcoin hit its new and latest all-time high of $64,800.
