As the weekend almost draws to a close, all eyes are on the various cryptocurrency and digital asset markets. With Bitcoin in the green, most other assets and currencies lose BTC value, yet gain a bit in USD terms. For XRP, the USD gains and BTC losses are nearly the same, yet the market cap swiftly approaches $15bn once again.
It still remains a bit unclear what the year 2019 will bring for Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP and other vehicles. So far, it seems the year is off to a good start, albeit there was some minor bearish pressure over the weekend as well. Now that Bitcoin looks on par to tackle the $4,200 level again, things may heat up in many different ways over the coming days. That can have an impact on the XRP price, either for better or worse.
