Messari’s report also showed that XRP kicked off the year with a trading price of $0.35 as of January 1, gradually rallying through the days before closing in January with a 19.71% increase in value. Although the second month wasn’t quite eventful for XRP as the price gradually dipped to $0.36 amid the downtrend in the overall crypto market. XRP’s price rally took a more aggressive look in March with the token sustaining its volatility and pushing higher with a more bullish stance.
