As Bitcoin continues its very bullish trend, one would expect all altcoins and digital assets to note spectacular gains in the process. In the real world, that situation is often very different. The XRP price, for example, is not necessarily noting any real gains right now. Instead, it has slipped into sideways trading action, which is not necessarily a bad trend either.
Although the value per XRP seemingly hit $0.4 for a brief moment on some exchanges this week, that level could not be sustained for the long term. Under the current market circumstances, that may come as a rather big surprise, although it is a very normal trend first and foremost. After days of major gains for all markets, some assets and currencies will need a breather. It appears XRP is on that short list right now.
