Ripple (XRP) Garners Adoption and Popularity
XRP stands as one of the altcoin in the crypto space that is gaining a lot of momentum in terms of both adoption and popularity. While cryptos like Ethereum (ETH) have lost upward of 50% of their previous value and even a sizable chunk of their market cap.
XRP has been able to hold on to the point of ousting ETH out of the number two position with a noticeable market cap that surpassed that of Ethereum. Ethereum (ETH) has since been trailing Ripple (XRP) with no sign of reclaiming its position.
With Ripple’s key mission being to integrate its technology with large payment providers and banks, the Ripple project is barreling on with various partnerships and listings.
There have been myriads of calls from members of the XRP community that the altcoin should be implemented as a base currency on Binance as it is already a base currency on United Exchange and CoinField Exchange.
The implication of this step for the cypto community if Binance yields to this call is vast. Ripple’s XRP will become a trade pair to other cryptocurrencies. Adding XRP on Binance will most certainly boost the price of the altcoin. It would also provide XRP with a solid base to maintain the second position as it makes it a contender with Bitcoin for the first position
