The Bitcoin bulls have been at it for the last two weeks, lifting up most altcoins with them as Bitcoin spearheads the overall market recovery. XRP, however, the black sheep of crypto, has been inactive in the past weeks, not aligning with the general market feel, until on May-14. The tables are however turning, and XRP is up 43 percent, trading above 40 cents psychological resistance with a market cap of $17.9 billion at the time of press.
Pundits reckon the bullish sentiment has arisen from CoinBase Pro announcement that XRP is now available to New York investors for trade, without the restrictions of old. Besides, Ripple (XRP) is also available on the Börse Stuttgart, a German stock exchange, implying that great times lay ahead for XRP investors.
