The 2019 season for some altcoins is not the best year. Many investors and traders could not get positive outcomes amid various moves on the crypto market. One of the main altcoins, XRP, is remaining in focus. The company’s project has several advantages for the banking industry. However, the performance of its altcoin has many questions to discuss. In comparison to the Bitcoin price, XRP and Ethereum lost significant numbers in terms of value. For example, according to the crypto market stats, XRP managed to drop by 47%.

Moreover, Ripple has finished the investing Series C round by receiving $200 from the top Japanese financial giant – SBI Group.
