Ripple Market Cap

Technical Analysis

In the beginning of the week, the bullish run was dominating Ripple and it went up to $3.3. But then the peak resistance resulted in a pullback and the week-long bearish run took over. Though different support levels tried to form at $2.4 and $2.6, none succeeded to hold the price. Newly formed mid-week resistance at $2.7 also checked any recovery and ultimately pushed the price down.

The bearish run also caused the 100 SMA to go down the 200 SMA recently with a crossover.

Market Update

This week, Ripple dominated the headlines. The bullish run of the coin has made its founders billionaires. At a point, Ripple’s chairman and co-founder Chris Larsen also surpassed the wealth of the Google founders and was on his way to beat Gates and Buffet.

Ripples market cap also dropped drastically as coinmarketcap.com excluded South Korean exchanges from its listings. This created a havoc in the market as Ripple’s market cap dropped $20 billion at once.
